Joker: “Our offensive line played as good as any I’ve been around.”

If you watched any of Sunday’s game, you have to be impressed by the way the offensive line created holes for the backs and bought Max Smith time to find his receivers. But just how good were they?

Joker Phillips was VERY impressed.

“Our offensive line played as good as any line I’ve been around,” he told reporters after Tuesday’s practice.

They played well without a breather, too. Offensive line coach Mike Summers pointed out that all five starters played every down against Louisville.

It’s one of the few positive takeaways from the game we can reflect on. Those guys HAVE to stay healthy.

 

Rashawn will be by with more from practice in just a bit…

    We’re still looking at 4-8 at best.

    They were pretty good against a biltz heavy team. I do think that they could have been better though.

    #1 This coaching staff can not coach this team to 4 wins. Other than the turnovers, every mistake that took place Sunday leads back to coaching.

    #3. Right. That’s why I said at best. More likely to be 3-9.

    It was against Louisville. Ill wait till we play South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, etc before passing judgment on how good this O-line may or may not be.

    Joker trying to find something, anything positive about his sinking ship. By the time we reach SEC play and get beat by 60 by every team that actually has a head coach, he will be commenting on how “good” our equipment managers do.

    If Mitch sticks with this guy at the end of the season he should be fired right along with him.

    Joker is impressed? Wow that says a lot.

    And while I’m on it…So many of us have been talking all off season about how dismal the prospects were for this team. Yet all the ‘experts’ at KSR predicted a win Sunday against Louisville. Are all of you forced to drink Matt Jones’ blue kool-aid to the point that you can’t think for yourself and simply repeat what the puppet master wants?

    There are a lot of people who read this site who know a hell of a lot more about sports and football in particular than the kids who write here. Kids who want readers to think they know what’s going on.

    I left the game down of course, but upon further review… I am pretty excited to see how we do in the SEC. Guys… we lost to a top 25 team that is very underrated! We will get better on D.

    Here is how we get 8 wins:

    1. Kent State-win 2. WKU- Win 3. Florida- Win 4. Miss State 5. Missouri 6. Samford 7. Vandy 8. Tennesse

    Heres my big prob with Joker, has the guy ever really seen how to be successful? Played at UK, coached at UK, coached at Notre dame the last year of Davie, played for the redskins when they sucked, basically, this guy wouldnt know good if it slapped up side the head. Wanna change the culture, hire someone that at least knows good when he sees it and somebody from a successful lineage. If I hire someone at the company I work for, you think i go get someone mediocre that worked for a mediocre competitor…hell no, I go get somebody from a successful company.

    Louisville does NOT have a top defense. They’re almost as bad as us. They won’t be ranked for long, even with a Big East schedule.

    If that is the case, we should have won the game. Lets stop the bs hyperbole.

    Joker needs to shut up. He’s lost all credibility when it comes to evaluating talent.

    #8–I don’t think “confused” aptly describes you. I think “delusional” is a much better word…

    Joker also commented on the water. He said it was the best water he ever tasted. He was gonna’ ask his best buddy Charlie what kind of water it was so we could get it in Lexington. Charlie told him that it was yellow snow melt. Joker has his student managers looking for it right now.

    Really? The O-line played as good as any you’ve ever been around? What film was he watching? Rudy? North Dallas 40? More like the first half of The Replacements.

    Well I guess Joker must have missed the play when our LT guard got pancaked by the defender and then made the sack in the 3rd Quarter. If ole buddy Charlie had not called the dogs off (taking Bridgewater out) they would have beat us by 40
