Barnhart Takes No Position On Farmer's Jersey Staying Up At Rupp

Sep 6, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Following a news briefing on football crowd control Friday WUKY asked UK Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart for his opinion on whether the school should continue to publicly honor former basketball Wildcat Richie Farmer.  His jersey currently hangs in the rafters of Rupp Arena as part of the 1992 Unforgettables Team.

Richie Farmer's jersey hangs with the other unforgettables at Rupp Arena.  Some are wondering whether it should be taken down.
