Seniors Matt Smith and Larry Warford hoisted Joker Phillips on their shoulders as they carried him to the tunnel following Phillips’ final game coaching on Commonwealth Stadium. The moment will surely be memorable for a guy who dedicated a great deal of his life to the Kentucky football program. Farewell, Joker.
Phillips talked about the scene and the moment after the game. “I’m numb to all this. You realize it’s time to go. It’s time to go and I understand that. Very rarely do you get 10 years at a place.”
