Kentucky loses again, fumble on the play

There’s no sugar coating this one. That game was difficult to watch. Kentucky went out to Columbia, Missouri to take on the Tigers for the first time in an SEC clash, and they’re coming home with an eighth tally mark in the loss column. Missouri won (and covered) 33-10 in a game we won’t be telling our grandkids about.

Nick will be by with more from the game in just a bit.

Watch this to hold you over…

    Sorry to say it…but this team is poor coached. poor substitutions…poor decisions. A change has to be made

    Not only are we last in the SEC, but we are tied for last with Kansas in terms of basketball powers. UNC, duke, Syracuse, Uconn, UCLA, and Indiana all are doing better in football than UK. Anyone still think joker is doing enough to save his job? If so, you must be a Louisville fan.

    I always love when the announcers calling the game say “I don’t understand why Kentucky did that” – its like they are speaking for thousands of people.

    Welcome to the SEC, Mizzou! No matter how bad your season seems you’ll always have UK – “The New Vandy”!

    Ugly Ugly loss….a change needs to be made. Watching Whitlow march down the field twice then pulling him…stupid. Accepting the penalty on the punt, and repunting…stupid. Can’t fix stupid.

    Whitlow at QB = good momentum….sub Towles in = lose momentum…sub Whitlow in = lost rhythm from earlier in game…sub Towles in = lose even more momentum…sub Whitlow in = completely lost momentum.

    Why not just keep Whitlow in when things are going well?

    Get a defensive coach to be HC. Because the whole offensive HC thing Hasn’t worked. Our offense is anemic at best(Georgia, wku) and just pitiful at its worst(Arkansas, Missouri, Florida). Pay the piper and hire kirby smart and who ever he can convince to come coach here.

    Have to laugh at Matt on the pre game show. Said how great Joker was on recruiting. The picture above is one of about 15 other fumbles and poor ball handling. The only player any good on this team is the punter!

    I don’t give a flying shit about basketball right now. America is driven by football hints the super conference realignment. We are a joke and Mitch needs to get his head out of his beaver and announce something Monday.

    This is what happens when you recruit MAC players. 75% of our players couldn’t dress at any other SEC school.



  24. UK last again

    We have injuries so we have to play freshman. Don’t buy this bull UK fans. We have injuries, but the upper classmen that would have replaced injured players have been thrown off the team or quit, that is why we are young and playing freshman. This is the head coaches fault. There is no excuse and sick of hearing it Joker.

    The Cats have 3 winnable games left with 2 at home. If we run the table, then Joker is back next season.

    As bad as I hate to say it, our coaches are morons. After bringing in Towles in the 1st half we lost any and all momentum. Also the decision to re-kick the football on the running into the kicker was baffling. Please Mitch, get some exciting football in Lexington.



  35. Fire joker today
    3:51 pm October 27, 2012 Permalink

    Read an article that said that big east football schools get three million a year from their tv contract. UK gets 20 MILLION a year, just over 6 times more. Yet we don’t use some of that money to pay for a decent coach. A decent coach doesn’t lose to non-BCS schools, he gets his team to play disciplined football with good technique, he beats teams that are from lower BCS conferences without the same monetary power(Louisville), and he accepts his failures as a coach. Just like his SEC record this year joker has a big goose egg on all counts.

    Had to turn on the Georgia/ Florida game to remember what real SEC football looked like after watching that earlier excuse for a game on ESPNU.

    Took me a minute to figure out you meant "hence" instead of "hints".
    Just, make a note of that for future reference, awright.

    I usually watch games 'til the last bloody end. Today, I just couldn't.
    I've gone as far as I can go with Joker at the helm. I thought I was
    die-hard, but I'm not. I just can't take it any more.

    UK takes penalty to kick again instead of taking the 53 yd. kick. Typical decision of UK like taking out the QB after the first two drives to open the game. The offense died after that mnove. Too many bad decisions like this to mention them all.

    Gus Malzahn is the man. We need an offense that is current. He is a motivator and great recruiter for his system.

    Oh so it’s Jokers fault for bringing Towles in on the 3rd drive. The same bandwagon people who were all for it in the Mississipi State game. I don’t see Joker throwing the ball or fumbling for any of the players on the field. And many of them fumbled!

    Game was out of control the last 8 min. Why wasn’t towles put in to gain a little more experience? Joker and Sanders are both a joke.
