A group of University of Kentucky students is starting a rodeo team. So far they don't have a stadium, a formal schedule or much funding, but there is a lot of enthusiasm among supporters.
Fees at Murray State University include $250 for a National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association card, $500 to rent a barn stall, $65 for the first event entered with $45 per additional event.
Because UK's team hasn't staged its first season, dues start at $25 a semester. A UK news release said additional fees could be anywhere from $150 to $500 a semester, depending on the events students choose.
