SEC To Announce Refund Policy "ASAP"

ATLANTA, GA. -- The Southeastern Conference says it will announce , on its Website, "ASAP," its refund policy involving several games scrambled by violent weather and affecting multiple teams, including the University of Kentucky Wildcats.

A recording on the SEC Website,, says the decision on refunds for games that had to be rescheduled and relocated to a smaller venue, leaving a lot of fans out, will be posted as soon as possible. The "sessions" involved at this point are #4, #5 and #6, which includes the matchup between U. K. and Ga. The "Cats" lost in overtime by a score of 60 to 56. ( Ticket Office Toll-Free 1-800-732-4849)

The game was played in Georgia Tech's Alexander Memorial Coliseum with a seating capacity of 9100, much smaller than the Georgia Dome which was damaged by a tornado Friday night. Storm damage prompted tournament officials to scramble, find another venue, and reschedule the games.

The SEC decided to restrict attendance to players' families, cheerleaders, bands and those with "working credentials." Many U.K. fans expressed extreme displeasure over being left out of what became a pivotal game for The Cats.

The recording says the SEC office's regular hours are 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. (CDT).

    How about all of the expenses involved with staying in Atlanta for hotels, etc...This is crazy, it wouldn't be as bad if the fans were let in on this little bit of information the night before during the storm after the cancellation of the game. How many people stayed over night and were turned away. I think it is just a shameful, for the SEC not to try to acomodate the KY fans for their troubles. The ticket price is only half of it.

    I wasn't there, but the people that traveled there to support the CATS deserved to see the game, and the game being played before a token crowd, while fans were denied access seems to be someones pathetic moron idea. I don't know who makes the decisions on these types of issues but I would have a hard time believing it was justified
