    John,
    Is the LHL taking these numbers at face value from the UK Athletic Department? Why doesn’t there seem to be a questioning of the UK Sports Information people regarding the disparity between the # of tickets sold and the actual # of people in the seats? I seem to remember Mr. Tipton doing an article a few years back regarding the disparity in numbers reported by the UK Athletic Department for basketball games. He, in my opinion, “correctly” called them out on reporting sell-outs for basketball games (based upon # of tickets sold) when in-fact it was very obvious that hundreds of seats were left empty in Rupp Arena. I applauded him on being honest with us at that time. However, why is this not being pointed-out on the football side of things today? Is there a double-standard here?
