Saturday’s Kentucky/Georgia game has potential to be one of the greatest nights in Kentucky football history. Not only can the Cats achieve bowl eligibility for the first time since 2010 with a win, it could have serious ramifications in the race for the SEC East. In his press conference today, Mark Stoops encouraged fans to pack Commonwealth Stadium for the 7:30 p.m. game, for which there are still plenty of seats.
“I think it’s very important to se the stadium filled. I think our players would love to see that happen. Our fanbase has been — there’s been a lot of loyal fans to us and we just need more. We need more people in there to fill it up. I’d love to see it filled. Again, to make no bones about it, when we see it filled, I expect our team to play at a high level to make those fans proud.”
After a trying start to the season, the fanbase is coming around, and Stoops said seeing a group of fans greet the team upon their arrival in Lexington Saturday night was heartwarming for both sides.
“I was excited for our players and our program and the fans,” Stoops said. “I’ve never denied the fact that I feel an obligation and I want to put a product out there that they’re proud of. I’ve said that from day one, I’ve said it in every opportunity I’ve ever had and I’m to going to use the word pressure, but you feel an obligation. You want to deliver for those fans that have been starving for a long time to have a successful football program and believe me, we work every day around the clock to do that for them.”
