Joker Phillips Press Conference and Monday’s Podcast

No one could have predicted Kentucky would be relying on their true freshman quarterbacks to win football games… but here we are. Phillips breaks the news about QB Maxwell Smith’s torn ankle ligament, talks about the Wildcats’ youth movement, and explains the expanded role of QB Patrick Towles going forward. Take a look.


Matt and and the gang talk about the war of words with Kyle Tucker, What to take away from UK/USC, and Kentucky basketball. Have a listen.

    Does anyone know why our bye week is Nov 10th? This seems odd with only 2 games left in the season and one of those is Samford.

    We need the bye week to prepare for Samford.

    Glad to see Towles lose the redshirt. Let him go out and get game experience now so he has something to build on the offseason. The idea that he’ll be a sure-fire All-American one day is nuts if he’s currently #4 on our depth chart.

    Patrick Towles! Please do not give away your redshirt year for this joker.

    Samford is a must win. We gotta rest up for that!

    Very desperate move. Is Towels going to start and play every snap or rotate? WTF. We are now going to tailgate and then leave at game time for night games.

    I would leave the redshirt up to the Towels. Where’s Mobley been lately? Wasted year on him since we don’t use him at all.Can he still redshirt or is it too late?

    Its a move for next year when he is the WR coach at Arkansas under Charlie Strong. Let Towles burn the RS, then transfer when is coach is fired. Take a hardship transfer and play at Ark for 3 years

    I wonder if the whole team can get this year back? Will the NCAA accept the “our coaches really sucked” excuse?

    KSR, please don’t post any more football posts until Joker is fired. He will try to use this now to save his job. This season is over, we will go 2-10, and it is now getting close to basketball season. No more losing football posts. Fire Joker, then fire Barnhart.

    7&8) Towles, not Towels. The Patty Ice era is officially underway.

    NO, NO, NO, do NOT pull the RS off Patrick at this point. Continue to let him practice and use Winslow and Newton as your two QB’s, do NOT lose this year for that young man. Come on Joker, even you can see you should only pull that RS if you HAVE to, and right now, you dont.

    Matt, go back and listen to today’s second hour podcast around the 24 minute mark. For a second, I thought you were nose whistling the Andy Griffith theme song. I for one think thats a dandy talent. For KSR’s sake, I hope Freddie Fleet’s Band with the Beat will not be holding open tryouts anytime soon.
