The junior linebacker was not too pleased at the crowd turnout for today’s game

After Kentucky’s Senior Day victory against Middle Tennessee, Kash Daniel voiced his displeasure with the Kentucky fan base after the poor attendance showing for the game.

Daniel is a junior, but did not hesitate to call out the fans for not supporting his senior teammates:

“I’m really disappointed,” said Daniel. “That stadium should have been filled out to the max. You’ve got a ranked team, first eight-wins (season) since the ’80s. You got to see Josh Allen break a sack record here. And look at this, you’ve got Nebraska — a football powerhouse, wins national championships — still sells out 80,000-plus when they went 0-5.”

There’s no doubt this senior class deserved a packed crowd today, especially as they’ll lead Kentucky to the postseason for a third-straight year.

“We’re bowl-eligible for the past three years in a row. And on Senior Day, this is the class that turned Kentucky football around.”

Daniel did not blame all fans, and thanked those that showed up for today’s game, but Kash was not happy to see some fans down and out about the team’s play over the last few weeks.

I would imagine that the noon kickoff combined with some cold weather wasn’t too appealing to a lot of fans, thus causing some poor attendance, but nonetheless, Kash is right that the senior class did deserve a packed stadium.
