Kentucky’s athletics director didn’t just take to social media to voice his frustration about the officiating during the Music City Bowl two weeks ago, he also sent an official letter to the Pac-12 Conference. There has been no response to the letter from the Pac-12, which supplied the officials for the bowl game against Northwestern, a UK spokesman said Thursday, the day the Herald-Leader acquired the letter via an open records request. Three days after the Music City Bowl, the Pac-12 told the Courier-Journal it stood by the postgame statement made by head official Chris Coyte. In the letter to David Coleman, the conference’s vice president for officiating, Barnhart strongly disagreed with the ejection of UK running back Benny Snell from the game for contact with Coyte. – JENNIFER SMITH, kentucky.comRead More
