    It takes a special performance for a Kentucky team to beat Florida. There was nothing special about the Cats tonight, unless one were to describe as the Olympic variety.

    You’re throwing in the towel on football after only 4 games?! I threw it in after two.

    10. To not look like the worse team v. Western and Directional Michigan for 3 quarters and get humiliated in games like this at home. Sumthin like that. If the program is going to “take the next step” you can’t have years where you take big steps backward. It’s not that we aren’t explosive or exciting or able to hang with good opponents. We look like we don’t belong on the field.

    I expected receivers that could catch, quarterbacks that could throw, and defenders that could tackle! I do not think that is too much to ask for.

    That’s why I hate this state because everyone just jumps the basketball train. Guess what we still haven’t won a championship since 98. I get UK football is terrible but support your team. We will never get better because who would want to come to a football team when the fans don’t even support it. Keep talking bad about our football program guys you are doing a great job. Sure football brings 2 times the revenue but it’s Rupp getting renovation or atleast more money into it. Kentucky fans are just satisfied with basketball but look at Florida who is good at both programs. Same with Alabama, LSU, and South Carolina. Really sad guys but hey we have basketball right….pathetic

    Im just wondering when all the idiot fans are going to stop defending the coaching staff. Its just like the end of the Tubby era and the Gillespie era. The basketball team went from great to ok then with Billy G….HORRIBLE. Its the same with football. Had a few ok years. Brooks did good. Started getting some momentum going then Joker blows it all up. Everyone said give him time after last year. Well instead of staying the same or taking a step forward, we take 20 steps back. If UK football ever wants to be relevant they cant keep rebuilding. They have to reload or else we will stay in the cellar with the likes of Vandy and the Mississippi schools. And i know who we lost from last years team. Is that going to be the excuse every year?

    There is nothing to be positive about with this UK football team.Absolutely one of the worst teams in D-1 football.Florida tied or broke a record in rushing .So much for Minter and his great defensive scheme.

    UK football, our past attendance at football games begs to differ. We have supported the football team through thick and thin. I think it’s ok to be upset with looking bad. We’ve lost enough heartbreakers where we haven’t blamed the team bc they outplayed their expectations and were at least competitive and in a position to win.

    But clearly something is broken that is not improving this season and we’re not fair weather fans to point it out.

    Ditto 25. I support football and attend as many games as I’m able to. But when the coach tells me he doesn’t care what the fans think and continues to do things that fail week after week and expects a different result… well isn’t that the definition of insanity?

    21.. I agree somewhat however, basketball will be first. In a State that has absolutely no professional sports teams we need to be able to cheer for an in state team. I love football and think we could do much better. I like Joker, played with heart, great person but we need a coach that has a good reputation. With Texas Tech coming in we need to realize the power of the SEC. Texas is a big recruiting state. think about it. SEC and a Texas school. We are going to be bottom feeders unless we invest.

    #21…yea, get the hell out if you don’t like it you jackwagon. Fans, and i mean REAL fans, are tired of watching this crap!!! Every positive step Brooks took w/this program is being wiped out w/every passing game. KY fans are more than ready to support the football team, and do…now, if we can just get the administration on board w/us. barnhart is going to have to make a decision by the end of the year…and if he choses wrong, he’s going to feel it next football season w/a half empty Commonwealth Stadium.

    @21 – Fans dont win football games. Good players, and coaching does. Dont blame the fans because you are pissed about the Football team. It would not matter if 10k or 100k people showed up to these games. It takes Talent and coaching to win.

    I agree with most of you and I’m not real big on Joker ever since the Tenn. game. I thought it was a poor choice of picking Joker. I just believe we are going to be terrible until we invest money into football. When we bring in recruits we have nothing to show for. I know the frustration but all I ever hear is can’t wait til basketball season. It just gets old. I love UK basketball but when it’s basketball season. I’m with all of you all, I know we are terrible and like Bryan said we have Texas A&M we are going to be much worse. The state of Texas is going to be a huge recruiting ground but why come to Kentucky when we don’t have state of the art stadium, locker rooms, or recruiting rooms. I know basketball is first but it’s time for investment in football.

    #21- Since when has South Carolina, LSU, and Alabama been good in basketball? When is the last time any of them won a SEC title, and when is the last time they all three made the NCAA tourney? You’ll need to pull a hell of a recruiting job to compete in this conference for football and despite what everyone says about Joker’s recruiting that is the main difference.



  64. Scott in Tally

    @21 – have you seen Bama, LSU and USC play basketball lately? Bama usually looses to Auburn at least once a year, LSU hasn’t won in years and USC is just bad. Your only correct assumption was in UF and they are above average in BBall. No the fans of UK want UK to succeed but the team must show progress many of us are tired of being just mediocre in the SEC, how many SEC games on average does UK win, 2 or 3 against the bottom of the barrel. If you want me to buy season tickets you have to put out a decent product. Program has gotten worse not better and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. These kids deserve better than what the coaching staff is giving them. None of this staff is SEC caliber. They all need to go and take Mitch with you.

    20) Too many turnovers was the only issue? Like, giving up 400+ rushing yards had nothing to do with it?

    Oh, and anyone who has an issue with basketball being king at UK, find another freaking team to cheer for. You’ve obviously been living under a rock since 1930.

    UK hired a mediocre Offensive Coordinator/recruiter at a traditionally bad football program as their head coach. What was expected? The guy looks lost on the sidelines. At least Brooks had that hard as scowl on his face during the game.
