    At least whitlow and king got a td. I don’t see how you blame all this on youth. These are Joker’s guys. He has been head recruiter/HC for 8 years!!

    There has been a little discussion lately in Lexington in regards to keeping Joker for next season….that discussion should go away after this game.

    So, they may be freshmen, but the were signed as SEC football players. I’d take my name off the back of the jersey if I were out there. Wouldn’t want anyone to know who I was. Z. Blay could be a matador.

    Sometimes firing someone is the kind thing to do to them. No way was this season going to work and Mitch should not have put Joker, the kids or the fans in this position.



  22. Disheartened fan
    10:32 pm October 13, 2012 Permalink

    I’ve seen many poor efforts in my many years as a UK fan but his absolutely has to be the worst. I am actually embarrassed to admit to being a fan at this time. If Joker isn’t fired then any and all credibility that the UK athletic department as a whole has goes right out the window. Poorest excuse for a coach I’ve had the displeasure of witnessing up close.

    Arkansas is a dumpster fire… So what is UK? The talent gap is monumental even with a middle of the pack SEC West team. We need new…. everything.

    What’s to Discuss? Joker can’t coach. Having 48 underclass men isn’t an excuse anymore. I’m sure any other sec all underclass men team would have beat western. An kept southcarolina close. And now this. This resembles the LSU game in 06 when we got beat 49-0, except this doesn’t change. It gets worse. UK needs a young, enthusiastic coach that is an absolute control freak. Not this crap joker pulls trying to be nice and the players’ best friends. Joker Phillips should just resign now. It would be the best thing to do for the program he does “love so much”. Time to open up a new chapter in UK football. Now lets see who’s the author.

    #21: I dont disagree with you entirely. But with a football program that is as unsupported as ours, and has been for a long time. Joker was the ” Coach in waiting”; and waiting on whatever he help accumulate. However, with Max Smith, we WOULD be better and make a more strong showing this season.



  33. snarkster
    10:37 pm October 13, 2012 Permalink

    If some kind of an announcement or move isn’t made by Monday about Joker’s future as headcoach (or lack thereof), UK fans should march to Capilouto’s office and hold a protest instead of going to the UGa game to show their disgust and displeassure.. I’d be there.

    I think we can all agree now that Joker needs to be fired if he doesn’t resign tonight. But who becomes the interim head coach?



  40. Michael
    10:40 pm October 13, 2012 Permalink

    Jokester and his staff, especially Rick Minter should be fired IMMEDIATELY!!!! If anyone on this board doesn’t agree with this, you are nuts!!!

    #32 I agree we would be better with Smith at QB but we couldn’t beat Western with him in the game so that doesn’t exactly inspire much hope that we would have won any more games than we have already.



  46. BellCounty Mounty
    10:41 pm October 13, 2012 Permalink

    I was at the 49-0 drubbing at LSU when we were coming off probation, but in 50 plus years nothing comes close to this. Even losing to La.- Monroe we were at least competive.

    I heard Joker Phillips locked in LaRod King in a bathroom stall and made him eat a whole box of Pop Tarts. I think we can fire him because of that.

    10:54 pm October 13, 2012 Permalink

    #32: Yes, we would be “better” with Max. Howeve, still lost to UofL and WKU with Max. The bottom line is preparation and this staff is terrible at it. It doesn’t matter if the players are young or experienced. Joker had an experienced team with Cobb, Lock and Hartline left for him his first HC year and managed to underachieve, then laid a huge egg in a bowl game against a team without a head coach.

    Young players need coaching. Charlie Strong brought a team of young players into Commonwealth Stadium in 2011 and beat down Jokers team that he was touting as SEC Championship contenders just 3 weeks prior at the Kickoff luncheon. This staff typically underachieves regardless of the talent level.

    On a serious note, they’ve had this problem lately.

    I just got back to my hotel room in Arkansas. It was the first time I was embarrased to be a Cat fan. Joker must be fired! That was the most pathetic performance by a football team that I have witnessed in a long time. They couldn’t tackle, they couldn’t pass, they couldn’t run, they couldn’t play football. That is the fault of the coaching staff to not prepare there team. Fire Joker and all his staff!

    Please stop talking about Jim Tressel. One of the dirtiet coaches in the last 30 years of college football.
