Today is the day, and what a day it will be for the University of Kentucky. Last year, the Spring Football Game brought in over 50,000 people in attendance. When you hear Kentucky, you do not typically think of football, but that is something Mark Stoops and his Wildcats are trying to change.
Kentucky will not bring in over 50,000 to today’s game, but the excitement will still be there. With renovations taking place at the stadium, there will be limited seating for today’s game. There should be well over 30,000 at the game, and the place should be rocking.
Stoops has brought an excitement to Kentucky’s program that has not been there for some time, now. The fan base is actually excited to watch this team take the field. There will be some changes at this year’s Spring Game. Quarterbacks Maxwell Smith and Jalen Whitlow will not be taking the field. Smith has been recovering from an injury, and Whitlow has decided to transfer. Whitlow could have played a part in this team’s success, but it would have probably been at a different position. He did not want to change positions, so he is changing schools.
What does that mean?
That means the quarterback situation is getting better. On last year’s squad, Whitlow gave Kentucky the best chance to win. If he could not win the starting spot back, then that means the rest of the quarterbacks are stepping up their game. That is exciting to hear!
If you want to see an early glimpse of this team, head on out to the Spring Game. It will be at Commonwealth Stadium at 3:30 pm.
You may ask, “Will this team ever be able to compete in the SEC?”
Coach Stoops will say, “Why Not?”
