We found out last week there were still 20,000 tickets remaining for Kentucky’s opener vs. Central Michigan. When asked about the low ticket sales during his press conference today, Mark Stoops said he’s appreciative of the fans that put in the time, money, and effort to attend games because it makes a world of difference to the team.
“Like always, I’m super appreciative of the people that come because we need them. We need the atmosphere and encourage all folks to be all hands on deck because it makes a difference. You’ve heard me say it, it’s not just some silly cliche, but it takes all of us all the time. We need a bunch of people to build this program the way we want it to be.
“Just take a look around the Southeastern Conference and take a look at the venues we step into. It helps. It helps in recruiting. It helps with a lot of things. We need some people there and I appreciate the people that have been coming. I also realize it takes a lot. I understand the complaints and it’s expensive. It takes a long time. It’s hard to park. There are a lot of things, so I greatly appreciate it because when you’re going to a football game, you better be invested because it’s a full day. There’s a lot to do and I greatly appreciate the support.”
