    You are so full of shit that I can't have a conversation with you as you throw out more lies than one head can comprehend.

    Kentucky has a very good sized football stadium. Kentucky has the largest "for basketball" arena in the friggin' nation. In football UK does well with attendance. In basketball UK leads the nation in attendance.

    Auburn sucks in a little high school gym in basketball.

    There are no standards in college athletic programs accounting practices. Kentucky rarely is ahead of Louisville in basketball revenue, but we know who leads in that. So you can't find standardized numbers that one can hang their hat on.

    So please go stick your head in some bee hive and tell us that bee stings don't bother you.

    He's not wrong. Kentucky is #20 overall and #9 in the SEC when it comes to revenue.

    Auburn is #12 overall and #5 in the SEC.

    Public universities all produce there revenue from athletics. LOL that you think seats in the stadium is even where the bulk of revenue for athletics stadiums come from. Overall athletic department revenue Kentucky ranks behind auburn. This is not even a debate at all. Good god you show your age worse every day on here. Go back and jerk off to your radio now and you can even still get it up old man...

    Nicer yes. Product no. Attendence numbers show that. UK will never have attendance records again due to having less seats. Yum has seats and ppl are not showing up.

    Kentucky has a winning record in the Yum! Center so it’s good in my book

    Probably bc no one wants to pay for a game when they can watch it on their couch. Attendance is down across the nation.

    True, some schools attendance seems to be failing faster than the national rate. Maybe they have better coaches/tv's.

    I'm sure he's still there due to season tickets. no one gives up season tickets to Rupp, they inherit those mf'ers.

    He dropped a girl, and Rupp/UK put an end to his Mony mony schtick.





    I'd sacrifice that young girl if it caused him to stop.

    Since you asked about the financial disaster it has become....
    The $238 million KFC Yum Center, which opened in 2010 and is home to University of Louisville basketball, as well as sold-out concerts and other events, was not the economic slam dunk it was supposed to be, even though it was completed on time and within budget. The city of Louisville, Kentucky, is on the hook for the venue's growing debt, increasing from $573 million in 2007 to $942 million by 2017, according to the Louisville Courier Journal.

    guessing Louisville could be be angling for an nba team with it? Is the yum center a property of the university?

    I would troll UL, but it would just be a sequel. I used all the good ones the first time around.

    His first post in the thread was complete bait. Little brother syndrome is seeping in a little deep lately

    Yikes, have some awareness. Vouching for that kind of posting speaks volumes, but okay.

    Yeah, there are definitely a great deal more UK fans in northern KY than Louisville fans. I know a lot of people that went to Louisville but are UK fans. Alumni only account for a very small percentage of fan bases too, especially for UK.

    Better than anyone (especially people that have never even been there). Go watch a UK/Louisville game at Dickmann's and it's easily 80/20 UK fans if not more lopsided than that.
