Mitch Barnhart Speaks About the Return of Athletics

We all know the anticipation is killing us as we want answers to if college athletics will return starting in the fall. Should we buy tickets for the upcoming year. Will we be able to keep our seats if we don’t buy season tickets for the upcoming season. As I spoke with the ticket office at UK today they stated they want to work with all the loyal BBN fans on keeping your seats. All you have to do is call and talk to them personally they will assist in helping you in every possible.

Below is what Kentucky athletic director had to say regarding the return to activities.

“With the NCAA and SEC approving a return to activity, we will now work with our partners at the state and local government and university levels to determine the date that our student-athletes will come back. We will not compromise the safety and well-being of our student-athletes in this process, taking all possible precautions. Once we take this important step in returning to activity, we will shift our focus to preparing to return to play and bringing the entire UK family – student-athletes, coaches and fans alike – back together this fall in a responsible and safe way.”

This makes me feel that we are one step closer to our beloved Wildcats stepping on the field of Commonwealth Stadium or as Mark Stoops likes to say, “The Krog.” I can honestly say that that will never come out of my mouth ever.

Have a great Memorial Day weekend & be thankful for all of those that gave their lives for our freedom. Football Saturdays just took one more step for the positive.
