THE CATS' MEOW: Univ. of Kentucky Exec VP/Finance & Administration Eric Monday on said the school’s renovated football facilities “will cost $110 million, which will be paid off by UK athletics in 30 years at $6.6 million a year.” School officials said “programming and internal planning” is underway. They added that “pending legislative approval, the athletics department plans to seek final approval for the renovations in March.” Monday said that after “that is done, a design team will begin the work” that will include “16-20 private suites, new home team facilities, 2,000 club seats, concession, restroom and security upgrades, a new team store, press facilities and a full-service kitchen.” The project is “to be completed in the fall of 2015 or early spring of 2016” (UKFOOTBALL.BLOGINKY.com, 1/29).
