    Usually it takes until UK first has to punt for these posts to appear, but I’ll start it early:
    Joker sucks, Sanders sucks, Minter sucks, Newton sucks, or offense line sucks, our defense sucks, our playcalling sucks, our receivers can’t catch, Barnhart sucks, Commonwealth sucks, UK recruiting sucks, the UK band sucks, UK football has always sucked, UK FB will always suck … Cal is awesome.

    Wife said cut your boys hair, I said game is is coming on, she says com’on.. I said here is a deal when Florida has two touchdown lead I’ll cut it… Quickly she says deal and while walking out of the room ” that won’t be long”… I’ll be cutting his hair in the first quarter.

    Way too many stupid mistakes. That just cost us at least 10 yds of field position because he just ran into the punt…from behind. All you have to do is let it go…

    I don’t care what you say, but stupid mistakes goes back to coaching. We didn’t make this many mistakes under Brooks.

    Will UK ever be able to play a game on national t.v. without TOTALLY embarrasing themselves? How many times do the announcers have to bring up the 24 losses and the total yardage pounding from UF? Will Joker and the team ever be able to show any FIGHT and PRIDE?? Will this team, under Choker, ever play to win and not to lose???

    I love how everyone sugar coats Brooks reign. You all were ready to turn on him and burn him at the stake until they beat lsu. I think the thing we as a fan base need to decide us what SHOULD our expectations be? They should be having these struggles this season. They should be 3-9 or 4-8 this year. They lost EVERYTHING on offense. They should be struggling. They should be getting crushed by Florida. The problem is not this year. The problem is LAST year. Last year should have been 9-4. Now everyone is frustrated bc last year was so disappointing. I decided when they won 8 games in ’07 and started the bowl streak that I wouldn’t complain too much as long as they weren’t 2-10. That sucked! I’m willing to stick it out this year and see if they can put together a good year next. If not then joker goes. But here’s the crux of the problem: joker NEEDS to succeed. We NEED him to succeed. Strong is going to have a good 3 or 4 year run at Louisville and card fans will crow about how the program is back. Then Charlie will leave and take a better job. UK could hire a big name coach and throw money at him like it’s candy. Then he’ll win and leave for a better job. The only way for UK to be successful long term is to develop a program under a guy for whom this is the destination job. Otherwise we’ll be Louisville like it was under petrino and like it will be after strong. These jobs are not destination jobs. They never will be. Why was Alabama able to flip it around under saban so fast? Bc saban is a great coach. But why did saban want to go to Alabama? Bc it’s ala freaking bama! Same for cal and UK basketball. We need to be pulling for joker folks.

    46 your right about last year the problem is the way we started getting worse each game by the end of the year our offense couldn’t score on anybody. We look slow fat and out of shape up front and we have very few skill players it’s going to be a long road back I don’t care who we get as coach. But the longer jokers coach the longer it will take.

    14 that shit ain’t funny. Not once. Not ever. These boys play their asses off. If they go 0-12, to say something like that is despicable. You should be ashamed!

    And we won’t win this game. But crawling back in it and showing some life may save the season or at least make it watchable. Defense has played well. Burned twice by the speed guys but 2 turnovers away from 17-10. Stay on board folks.

    #46 what exactly are we pulling for? it’s not even mediocre football..the coaches have blamed the fan base the players and betty crocker for their failures. minter . whether he meant to or not insulted the basketball team with his comments.. joker went directly after the fans.Hell we used to be able to guarantee at least 3 wins a year.. are u even certain we will beat a jacksonville state? UK has mired in sub standard football for far way to long. the fans are tired of it. Barnhardt isn’t, we have given our hard earned dollars and our time and our unadulterated enthusiasm to this team every year. Only to be rewarded with higher ticket prices , blame for the teams failure and being told mediocre is what we should expect.. well i say we aren’t even a mediocre team we strive to be mediocre. i’m not pulling for a team that has no fire, no desire, and no commitment to be the best they can be. will just wonder off into the sunset like joker phillips.. i won;t get into anyones tail.. i’m not gonna get mad.. i’m just gonna shake my head and walk away. hurry up basketball.

    55- you are delusional and should refrain from posting on football related topics concerning, well, any school in general. J/k

    This is Joker’s 2nd season as HC at UK and he was the RECRUITING COORDINATOR under Brooks since 2002 before taking over as HC.

    These are HIS guys, man. Besides that, this is the best overall group of talent UK’s had since the early 80’s. Granted, Joker put them together, but it is increasingly obvious that he just can’t coach them as a team. Add to that the fact that he fired a lot of the position coaches UK had that could actually coach and replaced them with recruiters that couldn’t… time is your enemy right now. Joker’s product is going to kill any recruiting advantage he has.

    Add to that a point that a caller on MAtt’s show made last week… Joker was appointed “Head Coach in Waiting” to AVOID this kind of slide and to carry on with the foundation Brooks laid. He even screwed that up, man.

    So to those who are saying that you should off yourself for not standing behind this pathetic display of a season, how should a fan who gives a shit react? I don’t think anyone posting on this board is NOT standing behind this craptastic performance. As a matter of fact, I would suspect that people taking the time to post here actually CARE about the team, otherwise they wouldn’t be posting. This is a step backward. Not in terms of where Brooks took the helm, but in terms of the Bill Curry days where first downs were so rare that you had to cheer those like a touchdown.

    The coaches haven’t helped themselves much in that they’ve pointed the finger at everyone from the basketball team to the fans for their failures. Step up and take credit for doing something wrong. It’s called leadership and I think those actions lead to what we see on the field…players with no drive or leadership that look more like they’re searching for someone to blame rather than getting to it and changing SOMETHING/ANYTHING about their approach/work ethic.

    Go Big Blue…I bitch because I give a damn. If I didn’t, I’d turn off the tv and refuse to watch a team that is this hard to watch. It’s bad football. And right now it’s on a national stage.
