By forcing them to miss the first games of the season, the current schedule creates a precedent where freshmen may think it’s okay to simply not go at all. The community complains every year about students not showing up at the games, but there’s no better way to get students immediately involved than by immersing them in all-things UK during the first month of school, football games included.

There are over 3,600 women currently involved in UK’s Greek Life, according to the university, and nearly 1,400 incoming freshmen have signed up to join this year. Combined, that’s 5,000 women who are not allowed to attend Kentucky vs. Toledo. This is just another way the university is making it harder for students to support our team.
