Mark Story: Why the griping over UK's plan to shrink Commonwealth Stadium is misplaced

Over its last 23 home football games, Kentucky has drawn in excess of 62,000 fans five times. In 2013, the percentage of seats filled in 67,606-seat Commonwealth Stadium was 88 percent, the lowest in the SEC. Yet, judging by my email, a fair number of Kentucky football backers are fuming over UK's renovation plan to reduce to 61,000 seats.
