To those who question whether the University of Kentucky sufficiently supports its football program, Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart has a new multimillion-dollar response. UK plans to pour an additional $3 million into its football program during the next school year, the school announced Tuesday when it unveiled a proposed athletic budget for 2013-14. The budget, which was formally approved by UK sports' governing body, the University Athletics Committee, called for expenditures of $12,587,627 for football this coming school year. That's an increase of about 33 percent from the $9,498,752 spent on football this past year.
