Athletics Department rejects Mayor’s offer to host Final Four pep rally

By Baylee Pulliam–

The University of Louisville Athletics Department has rejected Mayor Greg Fischer’s proposal to host a community pep rally in advance of Saturday’s Final Four game against the University of Kentucky wildcats.

The pep rally, Fischer said, would have been held sometime this week in front of the KFC Yum! Center downtown.

The Mayor’s office told WFPL U of L officials were worried the rally might pull players, cheerleaders and band members from their classes.
