Mark Story: Some of UK's Ring of Honor members say removing names from stadium wall 'a slap in the face'

Before this season, the 45 former UK football players and/or coaches — Shipwreck Kelly to Bear Bryant to Tim Couch — who have had jerseys retired also had their names on the side of Commonwealth Stadium's upper-level wall. With the installation of the new ribbon boards that run around the side of the stadium and cover up what once was the Ring of Honor, those names have been transferred to flags flying at the top of the stadium. Some ex-players are unhappy with the change.
