Top O’ the Morning to ya! It’s a beautiful Saturday in Kentucky. A Saturday that one wishes could be dedicated to college football. But alas it is June and not yet August.
But many fans have already started buying their football season tickets, preparing for one helluva home slate this season. It took a while but fans are starting to buy into the football program. And Why Not? Coming off of a 10 win season and a Citrus Bowl win, the Kentucky Wildcats are primed for another big season.
Season ticket sales have already surpassed the total season ticket sales from 2018. Florida, Tennessee, and Louisville are all on the home schedule this season and while the Cats had five players drafted to the NFL, there is still plenty of talent and there’s more coming in.
It’s taken seven years but it appears that Mark Stoops has the fan base buying in.

The pressure is on Nick and EJ | Cats Pause- Nick Richards and EJ Montgomery both came back from the lure of the NBA Draft to solidify Kentucky’s front court. But the expectations are sky high and it’s time for both of them to produce.

Fixing the NCAA draft problem | CBS- This article argues that there is less talent in the NCAA than usual but I contend that the NCAA was a big winner with the draft decisions. Seemed like to me more players made the decision to return to school.
