Kentucky Wildcats: Wildcat Coal Lodge Public Tour

Just like the Craft Center pictured above, The "Coal" in Wildcat Coal Lodge cost the coal industry quite a tidy sum.

CoachCal.com has a virtual tour of the new Wildcat Coal Lodge, which will serve as home to some of the students at the university, among them the Kentucky Wildcats basketball team.

As you can tell by the name, Kentucky coal operators had a great deal to do with it's construction -- to the tune of $7 million dollars. Just as a similar amount was able to get Joe Craft's name on the basketball practice facility, Kentucky coal operators got similar treatment when they made their generous donation.

Obviously, with politics being what they are and concern for emissions a major political and public health concern, there was a protest by approximately 60 students yesterday demanding that the University change the name of the dormitory. No word yet on whether or not the students and other like-minded people critical of the name were prepared to pony up $7 million dollars to replace the funds donated by the coal industry.

My guess is that the thought hasn't crossed their minds.
