Barnhart: New arena ‘better be’ an option for Lexington Task Force

University of Kentucky Director of Athletics Mitch Barnhart objected to the premise of a reporter’s question about whether he (Barnhart) saw the future home of UK basketball trending toward a renovation of Rupp Arena.
“I don’t think there is any trending at all,” he said after a Wednesday meeting of Lexington’s Arena, Arts and Entertainment District Task Force. “I think they said about four times today that all things are on the table, and I think all things are genuinely on the table. At least they better be.”
