"Wildcat Coal Lodge" now one step closer to reality

Despite several protesters, a proposed new lodge for the UK basketball team took another step forward Tuesday.

UK Trustees approved a $7 million proposal to build what would be called "Wildcat Coal Lodge."

A group of investors is putting up the money, but say they'll only donate it if the word "coal" is included in the name of the building.

It would be built near the current Wildcat Lodge.

Several people protested Tuesday, saying they're upset "coal" is included with the name.
