Count me among the ignorant masses in Lexington who will sit through just about anything on a Saturday afternoon resembling collegiate football. My family and I have had twelve UK season football tickets since 1976....
I'll even take this psychosis one step further. Of the twelve season football tickets I just mentioned, during the late 70's, my father obtained four of them (seven rows up on the 47 yard line) by forfeiting a pair of season UK basketball tickets
(albeit upper arena). Don't ask. Let's just say that Pops was never much of a Joe B. Hall fan...
Between watching hundreds of UK football games over the last nearly thirty years and having graduated from the University of Florida, I don't really know any brand of football other than the SEC. I have been to games at most of the conference stadia (with the exception of Arkansas and Mississippi State). By the way, if you've never taligated at some of these SEC towns...it's hard to describe to you the atmosphere.
