Kentucky Governor: Football / Basketball - No Fans
Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear was asked about the upcoming football and basketball seasons...
With June 1 coming up, here's what Gov. Andy Beshear said when asked about the NCAA's decision and sports returning during his Wednesday press conference.

"It's still a little early to tell. I think where people are trending is games without fans because it's the mass number when you have fans that can spread. But some sports have a lot of contact too. I want to be really cognizant that these are student-athletes, right? They're not paid professionals. And we want to make sure that it is safe for them. Now they are a part of an age group that respond the best to this virus in terms of health outcome, but they still get it.


"I know that when we talk about youth sports, it's going to be low contact sports. And then on the high contact sports, we're going to try to come up with guidance that lets you do individual workouts and team practices that don't involve the actual contact. Sow there's a lot of contact in basketball. We don't think about it the same way we do football, but there's a lot of contact. Now if we get some guidance out there that would let people practice but not scrimmage, for instance, thoughts about having them spread out until we can get to the point where we think it's safer, which could be later in the summer. Again, we're watching all this.

Louisville AD Vince Tyra will hold a press conference today to discuss what UofL will do.

I'd say football w/o fans would hurt Louisville more than UK - unless you actually believe the attendance numbers coming out of Lexington...

This is really good news everyone.

It is highly unlikely any other governor will propose something more conservative than this.

It is highly unlikely this very conservative position will prevail.

We are going to have sports folks. This is good news.

I agree with no fans in Rupp. That armpit of a place they call an arena is probably a cesspool of disease as it is. :)

Good wake up call for these red states that allowed democrats to be elected in off year elections.

Remember this and maybe next time get out and vote.

Kentucky looks like a cesspool of poor people with very little healthcare.

Aren't you poor? Are you a "cesspool"?

Here's what happened in the elections this past November.

Incumbent Republican Governor, Matt Bevin, was wildly unpopular, and did and said embarrassing things leading up to the election, but still, was the sitting governor. So the Rep. did not primary him (mistake #1). They let him go ahead and run.

VOTES FOR GOV
Bevin 704,754
Beshear 709,890
No name Libertarian 23,433.

Ouch. Lost by 0.37%


But look at what happened in the rest of the statewide elected offices last November:.

Attorney General Race
REP - 823,346
DEM - 602,272

By the way, Republican Atty Gen played football at U of L and is the first African American to win the Atty Gen office in state history. To have a U of L alum, a black one at that, win so convincingly is crazy. He could be a serious up-and-comer.

Secretary of State Race
REP - 746,629
DEM - 682,096

By the way, the Dem candidate for SOS was a former Miss America, and former Republican, so this was a bit of a shocker too.

State Auditor Race
REB - 779,730
DEM - 574,820


Kentucky State Treasurer Race
REP - 856,150
DEM - 555,259

Agriculture Commissioner Race
REP - 821,414
DEM - 545,099



The crazy part of this is the Incumbent Republican Governor LOST when all the other races went for Republicans BIG.

Should have run a primary against him.

Oh well. 2023 will be here before we know it.

It's a beautiful state until you get too far east and then the loons appear.
