    Hey guys, espnu had said earlier that they were airing a special of our team touring the White House today, May 11, right? I can’t find it listed anywhere on Insight. If you guys have any information, could you please post it on KSR? Thanks.

    And, I’m afraid the ranking might be a little high actually.

  25. Another Perspective
    10:13 am May 11, 2012 Permalink

    Personally, I think the apology is unnecessary because Matt’s original point is correct: They used the kid who cannot pronounce consonants clearly to make it more poignant. It was emotional manipulation and THAT is why it is irritating.

    Ryan- No, that mentality is why we continue to suck. UK FB fans fork over an ever increasing toll to watch perpetuated mediocrity… and the beat goes on. You cut they’re cash flow off and then you will see change.



  38. Kidnut
    10:17 am May 11, 2012 Permalink

    I agree with Ryan, if the team is competetitive in all of the games and comes close to pulling some upsets…he could save his job with the same record as last year.

    I said at the end of last season we either needed to fire Joker or commit to giving him 4 years. Because I just can’t see, with what we have on the team and what our schedule looks like, this team going to a bowl game which is absolutely what it will take to retain Joker. I feel like we’re flushing a year down the toilet because at the end of last season I was 100% convinced that Joker will be fired at the end of this coming season even if we improve, look like a somewhat competitive team, and only get 5 wins again.

    Joker. Like another poster said in a earlier thread; ranked 90th (bottom 25 percent) nationally in performance and @30th (top third) in pay.
    That metric in most corporations would lead to a pink slip pronto.
    If we win 2 SEC games this year, Mitch will probably extend him.

    82- I agree, but I think Joker is doing the best he can with what he has. He was placed in this position by people who put finances above on-field success by hiring a first-timer in the SEC and those same people have their hands tied on what they can supply in terms of money/facilities, etc., to make it easier for him.

    I have missed 2 games since Rich Brooks first year at UK. I tailgate with die-hards. I am one that gets upset when people are negative towards the football program. Saying that, I was physically ill when I had to renew my tickets this year, and so were all of my football friends. I know several who have given up tickets this season. I would say up to 80+% are negative about the up coming season.

    Mike Leach ranked 17th in Sporting News – should have been at UK this year….
    Sporting News says: Calico Mike probably couldn’t coach one of the superpower programs if he tried. Why? Because he’d hate it. Leach is all about beating–outscheming–teams with more conventionally great players. At Texas Tech, he did so on a brilliant level. For him, great isn’t measured in inches, pounds or 40-yard dash times. It’s measured in upsets. “He did a great job at Texas Tech,” said a fellow FBS coach, and yes–go ahead and put the emphasis on ‘great.’”

    112- And I agree with that. I don’t think he’s gonna get it done, either. But, I also think that his replacement, if not vetted properly for the task at hand, could be just as bad as what we have now. We have no facilities to lure a ‘name’ coach and no money to change that fact. Any coach that comes here is starting off behind the SEC 8-ball.

People are jumping ship in mass. I was on the same list/path until I gave up my tickets 3 years ago.

    Part of the ticket problem is how jacked the prices have become with K fund donations, etc. We started season tickets Rich Brooks’s first year and they were $300 for 2 seats in the endzone. Now it’s closer to $800. People don’t, and can’t, afford to spend $800 to watch a team get destroyed. Joker needs to be COMPETATIVE in games. When you get blown out and can’t move the ball no one wants to pay to see that. With that said, I did say that the coach that could finally beat Tennessee was welcome to stay as long as he wanted, so on a personal level I will stand by that.

    A problem with the football team is their horrible offensive play calling. I’m not for sure how much Joker has to do with the play calling now but its still the same schemes as when he was the coordinator. I understand that UK does not have too many offensive options but sometime they are going to have to try change up their play calling. Every possession running one run up the middle and throwing the same slant pass every time (especially on 3rd and 20 trowing a 2 yard slant pass to gain two yards if they catch it) is not going give you any results. Once again I know they don’t have many options or play makers but try sometimes to throw down the field. Try something to produce results bc this systems is not working. Am I completely wrong?? does any one agree???



  168. Brian S
    10:51 am May 11, 2012 Permalink

    I don’t get this Matt. Mitch is talking so open about how shaky Joker’s future is but he hasn’t lost or won a game since last season. We gave up the chance to get Mike Leach because Mitch wants the perception he is doing the right thing when it appears even he believes this is a wasted season. I know BCG gave him reasons outside the lines to get booted after 2 years but he had no problem doing the right thing when it came to basketball. There are enough obstacles with football that you can’t afford to linger on something that isn’t working.

    Not trying to be too negative here, but why in the hell would Kirby Smart come here? I’m sure he had plenty of head coaching opportunities the last few years and has turned them all down. What would make you think that if the KY job was offered to him he would accept, same for Tressel. People need to realize that it would take a miracle to get them to come here. We need to look at “hot” assistants from lessor schools or young guys blazing through the ranks at other lessor schools. Urban Meyer started at Bowling Green and went to Utah, those are the schools we could poach a coach from; not the top assistant at Alabama.

If he can’t at the very least compete and get us to a 6-6 record this year, considering fan apathy or anger toward the program, he needs to be replaced. That’s the short-term.

No coach will ever want to come if you can them after 2 years for not producing any results at UK.. Even tho I am not a fan, you just can’t fire that quickly but he should have never been given the job without having some kind of competition for the position. This was a big failure on Mitch’s part, now look what has happened to our team finally after Brooks had work to bring us back to be able to compete with every team in the SEC and thats all you can ask for of our coach with the current system that is in place for the FB program

    How are we spoiled by Music City bowls, RJ? Isn’t progress the key to building a program? We were on the right track and changing the “content mindset” of the BBN was a step in the right direction. If you expect 4 or 5 wins per year, that’s what you’re going to get. Regardless of fans not being on the field, that mentality trickles down. Players, staff, etc see that stuff on the message boards, news, radio, and so forth. It’s only human nature.

    I saw a sign at Gameday in 07. It said “We Believe” but the Believe was marked out and EXPECT was written below it. That’s the mentality to have.

    The number of Scoville heat units (SHU)[1] indicates the amount of capsaicin present. Capsaicin is a chemical compound that stimulates chemoreceptor nerve endings in the skin, especially the mucous membranes; pure capsaicin has a Scoville rating of 16,000,000 SHU.

    Matt, the Scoville scale used for measuring the heat in peppers is based on the amount of capsacin a pepper produces. It has nothing to do with taste. Capsacin is the chemical in a pepper that produces the pepper’s heat.



  342. Blue Balls
    11:50 am May 11, 2012 Permalink

    Heat is measured by Scoville Units. Capsaicin is a chemical compound found in chile peppers and this is what provided the heat. The Scoville meter measures the amount of Capsaicin

    Bob’s plan won’t work. Most of the coach’s salary comes from endorsements that aren’t paid for by the University.

    I think it’s about time you come up with a catchphrase for dropped calls. “Quitter” was pretty good, but I think we can do better.

    Yes, actors were reused multiple times in the same series in the 1960’s as there was a shortage of humans at the time due to the entire Earth’s population amounting to merely 10K people.

    Matt,

    Scoville has 2 measurements, the Scoville organoleptic test, which is a subjective test based on human taste testers, and high-performance liquid chromatography, which is a quantitative test. HPLC uses different units of measurement to obtain the Scoville scale, so there is about a 20-40% differentiation between the two methods. Having a medical background, I would favor the HPLC method, which measures the capsaicin oil extract directly.
