Joker tells Matt to don’t stop believing in today’s podcast

Today’s podcast is up and features some quality moments, including an awkward encounter with a fellow media member, a surprise call from Ramel “Smooth” Bradley, and of course, Matt’s interview with Joker Phillips, which starts at the interview starts at the 22:19 mark. (The feed cut out for a bit right after it starts, so excuse the technical difficulties. We are who we are.)

Without spoiling it, I’ll just say I found the interview incredibly interesting. Joker was as passionate and animated as I have ever heard him, and at times, seemed downright angry about the negativity surrounding the team. He didn’t back down from Matt’s questions, at one point calling out our fearless leader for not believing in the program, and challenged him to double his bet with Clay Travis on how the team would fare this season. I’ll be honest with you, you’re going to enjoy it.

    Did you guys see my Tweet that I tweeted to the world but meant to send to a recruit? Why do I sound like such a creeper? “I am doing great. I have been thinking about you alot since last weekend. A whole lot. How are you doing?”

    Somehow a zinger about Kentuckians not wearing shoes just doesn’t land when written as “dont where shoes” #5.

    That said…wear some damned shoes, Matt. You just fed the trolls a nice helping of toe-jam.

    It looks like Jokers giving him the third degree as Matt’s face is red as an apple.

    rex ryan-Hobbits have extremely large feet in comparison to the rest of their bodies. Their feet are also very, very hairy. I have read that Tolkien became friends with many Kentuckians during WWI and that he put alot of characteristics of those friends into the Hobbits. Whether this is true or not, I don’t know.

    Amg-It could be that Matt’s face is red because he spent all afternoon playing golf at that country club they had the show at yesterday in Bowling Green. The sun does that to you, you know.

    Matt: Thirty minute interview,of which at least eight was commericals. Matt asked about three questions, none of which Joker answered. Joker rambled about having faith, how good he was about getting unsung recruits(Tubby,Tubby Tubby)about how we are suppose to believe 5 wins is great. It was certainly not the tough questions, tough interview you had promised all week. All is was ; more of the same BS we have gotten for two years. It ended with Joker shameing you into loosing another One Thousand Dollars.Please control your show the next time.

    Agree totally with 18 on this one Matt. All you did was giggle like a school girl while Joker danced around every question. I actually know less about the program than I did before the interview. Another thing I noticed is Joker is not a very articulate man, he has no presence at all. I actually lost faith after listening.

    Got me some phone numbers of a bunch of cougars last weekend. That is what it is all about who cares about football.

    Joker’s BS is similar to when Obama said “the private sector is doing fine.”
