UK players want a sellout; Mark Stoops expects it

Mark Stoops and his team have done their part so far this season.

Now it is time for you to do yours, Big Blue Nation.

Tickets sales have been down in recent years, but there is no excuse to not pack Kroger Field on Saturday with the potential death to the streak and 4-0 record in sight.

“I fully expect our crowd to be a sellout and the place to be crazy on Saturday, and we need it to be,” Stoops told KSR on Monday. “I want it to be for our fanbase and our community and our school. Our players just have to focus, but they feed off that electricity and they feel it and of course they need that.”

Mitch Barnhart tweeted that, on the plane ride home from South Carolina, players were asking him if Florida will be sold out.

The best fanbase in the nation wouldn’t let them down, would it?

Do what you do best, BBN.

    Having earned a B+ in Introduction to Economics a decade ago, I am well equipped to solve this for us, Mitch. The fastest way to align your supply and demand is to lower your ticket prices. $45 for the upper corner may just be too high. Drop to $25 or $30 and you will meet your fan base halfway and you will see BBN rush to a Kroger quicker that a forecasted snowfall.

      True. We aren’t a juggernaut in football and until we become at least a very solid team (in the running for SEC East champs every year without people snickering), $45 is too high. Besides, even if they dropped it down to $20 for those seats, that’s more money than they are making right now with the stadium 3/4 full on a good day.

    Doesn’t matter if it sells out or not. I think the last couple sell outs we have had have both ended up being losses.

      Please don’t come to the game. I’ve drove from Pikeville to Lexington for 13 years now for every home game. Win or loose!

    Flying in Saturday morning from CA, got tickets in the lower bowl, 40 yard line, face value. Excited!

    Like 100% of people in CA I am “comfortable” so the $1,000 trip is no skin off my back. If you can’t afford the tickets I suggest you stop sucking and move to CA.

    The first line of this comment is true.

    No excuse for not selling out. Huge game in what could be a huge season. Was disappointed to see crowd for EKU game. I hate noon games but it was a beautiful day and you still had the whole evening available. Kudos to student section for EKU game, they were there in force and early, I arrived an hour before kickoff and there were lots of students already in the seats. Be there, Be loud and Be proud. Hope this tops the UGA game last year which was an awesome scene but a disappointing ending.
