The team got to work out on the new turf this morning

The rest of the stadium may not be done, but the team tried out the new synthetic turf today at Commonwealth Stadium for the first time. KyWildcatsTV was on hand to film their priceless reactions.

Boom Williams sums it up nicely: “Welcome home.”

    Boom says “welcome home n*gga!”. Probably not the best representation of our guys…

    Although Boom used the N-word, it’s easy to misread the context or intent. There’s no need to even include that as a quote in the article. The smile on his face and enthusiasm to hit the field for us is what UK has been missing for a long time. Many elite athletes, and especially lightning quick ones like Boom prefer turf to grass for responsiveness to cuts and bounce. His excitement is what we should all be feeling. If Dawson is the real deal (no more 3rd & short QB option runs) and the young D proves stingy, we have a legit shot at 7-5. Just my thoughts. These players are excited and I am too. Let’s get it on

    Maybe this year we make up for Joker not letting the Tigers score, then marching down the field, getting the TD, and going for the 2pt. Because they had no answer for the Wildcobb.
    Hell while we’re at it lets start our own streaks.
    It’s a new stadium and it’s about time.
