Kiss of death?

This from the Lexington Herald-Leader:

UK Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart sent a letter to fans on Thursday asking them not to rush the field at Commonwealth Stadium if the Cats knock off top-ranked LSU on Saturday. The SEC fined the school $25,000 after the fans stormed the field following UK’s 40-34 win over Louisville on Sept. 15.
“When fans rush the field it compromises the integrity of that surface and risks the health and safety of the same players that fans are intending to celebrate,” Barnhart said in the letter. “Please continue to enjoy the wins from your seat.”

Wow. Not since the city of Dallas issued the parade route during the middle of the NBA Finals have I seen such brazen confidence.
