ESPN is just stoking the fire for Joker Phillip’s coaching seat. Kentucky was named to their list of the Bottom-10 teams in college football for week three. The Cats join the likes of Colorado, Massachusetts, Memphis, and Wyoming. One positive is that they are the only team with a win in the group.
Kentucky head coach Joker Phillips put on a brave face, and his demeanor betrayed no hint of desperation, but even he can’t deny what the Bottom 10 can see clear as day: the inexorable crawl toward antipathy creeping up on the Commonwealth after the Wildcats’ 32-31 overtime loss to Western Kentucky on Saturday.
With a game-winning 2-point conversion — on a trick play, no less! — WKU turned the tables on its tormentors, earning the Wildcats the not-so-coveted No. 5 spot in this week’s Bottom 10.
Phillips could use a KO of an SEC heavyweight in the worst way. The only thing that could make Kentucky’s current state more unpalatable would be the sight of an undefeated Louisville team led by a QB who’s an early Heisman candidate.
The article pokes fun at fans anxiously waiting for basketball season to begin. Something that is teased about every year. Though typically in late October – not after three games.
It just doesn’t get any easier for Joker.
