Kentucky and Samford will kick off under the lights

Kentucky’s last home game of the season will be under the lights when the Cats and Samford Bulldogs kick off at 7:30 ET. The game will be televised on CSS.  We hope the fans will show up and support the seniors on their big night.

    What are there….9 seniors left on this team? That was from the ’09 recruiting class that was supposedly the 26th best recruiting class in the country. The failure to retain the players from the ’09 recruiting class and to fully develop their talents is the reason we have a freshman-led team when we should have a senior-led team. More than any other single factor, I believe that the failure to retain and to develop he talent (and there WAS talent there) in that ’09 recruiting class is precisely the reason we are in the perdicament we are now in. Joker has recruited excellent talent, but he has failed to retain and develop that talent. Nevertheless, we should give those 9 seniors that are left a good send-off.

    Okay guys, the bitching is over, the message is sent. Time to send a NEW message: Coach Phillips, we respect the man you are and what you tried to do at UK. We will miss you as a person, and wish nothing but the best. Current and future UK Fball Athletes, THANK YOU for enduring! We support you!

    How do we send this message? #packcommonwealth

    Samford is currently 6-3 on the season. This is no cupcake game. Samford will show up expecting to win just like Western did.

    #6: my presence has been greatly missed all season. Did you see the pictures from last week? EVERYONE’S presence is greatly missed. Rewarding incompetence (paying tribute to Joker Phillips? SERIOUSLY? He didn’t know to give Randall Cobb the ball when he was OC….didn’t know to start Patrick Towles as head coach…..didn’t know to sit Morgan Newton as head coach. Other than being Nice…..what has he done here? Ram the program into the ground.) is as Kentucky Football as Kentucky Football gets.



  13. What #10 didn't admit
    12:26 pm November 5, 2012 Permalink

    is that he’s giving his 6 tix to his worst enemy and HE will not be there. LOL

    By the way, I think its more than a little stupid to start some movement #packcommonwealth AFTER the coach is fired. So its a “movement” to show support to Seniors and other players? Like they didn’t need support while their coach was embattled? Big time programs pack the damn stadium EVERY week come wins, losses, or ties. #stupidtodoitonlynow

    Also….why, god why…..would you want to watch us play Samford? We’re awful….and they don’t have a single player that anyone on this website has ever heard of. Why waste your Saturday? Because Joker Phillips is a nice guy? Most ridiculous thing I’ve heard in weeks.



  15. huh?
    12:30 pm November 5, 2012 Permalink

    #12 so the main reason you go (or don’t go) to a football game is to make some kind of statement about the coach? Start Patrick Towles? A freshman that played KY High School Football (bottom rung) thrown into the SEC meat grinder? And what would that have done other than ruin him? Sit Morgan Newton? When did Morgan Newton not sit? He sat behind Hartline when everybody wanted Newton over Hartline. Newton only played when he HAD to be played! Only when the 2 freshmen couldn’t. Time to move on and hire a new coach. YES. But your “facts” are deluded.

    How beholden are we to CSS of all people to kick off in the evening in mid-November against Samford? This matchup had 12:00 noon written all over it from the start. The payoff for this night game broadcast must be virtually nil, and right now who’s worried about getting the prime time “exposure”?

    What in the hell channel is CSS? 7:30? This drive to ‘pack commonwealth’ is admirable, but ridiculous. The average temperature for that week is 43 degrees at kickoff. And for a 1-as team? Good luck with that.

    This Pack Commonwealth shit is ridiculous.. why would I wanna go sit in the cold to watch a team that’s 1-9 play Samford? Not happening, not wasting my money.

    #15: Obviously you have a pretty short memory. Newton started the 2011 season as the starter. And he’s awful…it was obvious then and has been obvious throughout. And Towles would have started the season again the “meat grinder” of Louisville, Kent State, and Western….think he could have handled that “meat grinder.”

    Again….anyone Packing Commonwealth to watch UK-Samford…..here’s to you. Those of us that actually enjoy quality football games over love letters to ex-coaches will be at home watching real games on tv.

    WHAT IS CSS?
    I use cascading style sheets to develop websites and we refer to them as CSS, but I never heard of a television station called CSS.

    #24: CSS will be carrying this game locally. It’s an affiliate of the “Who Gives a Shit Network”

    why the hell would anyone want to go watch a 1-9 awful team play samford, who just might beat us. the season ended yesterday. hope mitch gets good input from his advisors and lands us a great coaching staff so we can look forward to next year. beat the pioneers!!

    I’m calling it right now UK loses to Samford 45-0, and then loses to UT 99-0 Dooley saves his job at UT then we get a huge big name from what im hearing it might be Nick Saban or Less Miles Calling it right now !

    Cox Sports South says they put the game on me because it isn’t available in the state of Kentucky except on Satellite, So Samford can see it in Alabama but Ky. fans must go to Commonwealth Stadium to see the game.

    Fans need to stay away until Mitch gets his act together and gets his facility funding request approved by Capaluto. Next to hiring coaches, that’s his most important job – and the one at which he he has consistenty failed.

  30. Seriously? You all were bitching before the first kickoff of the season yet you’re critical on Joker in his last game at commonwealth? Well Joker wasn’t the man for the job, that’s an understatement for sure. But he’s not embarrassed UK by boinking his underlings nor has he been noted for putting bounties on other schools players. Now with what I’ve just read from some of you this is the main reason why we won’t get a high profile name. I’m happy as hell Cal didn’t read some of your comments after the canning of Clyde.

    guhhh… man there’s some pretty pissed off fans out there still. I was one of’em, but the message to Mitch has been delivered kids. There are young men out there with Kentucky on their chests, doing the best they can do with bad coaching, play calling, etc..

    Packing Commonwealth isn’t about what we have. It’s in support of what we can have, solidarity for the FUTURE of Wildcat Football. hate Joker? Okay, don’t show up for him. Don’t like the seniors? NOT… THEIR… FAULT… that they had crappy play calls and bad coaching.

    Show up for them. Show up for the rest of the team. Show up to demonstrate the MIGHT of the BBN. But don’t show up and Mitch looks like he was right (whether true or not, it will look that way). Truth is, you might well be showing up for another LOSS, but that’s not why you’re going. You’re going to show tomorrow’s Wildcats, the next head coach, and the rest of the nation that Kentucky cares about and supports our football future.
