The fine folks at cn|2 posted this video of Mitch Barnhart speaking at the City Salesmen’s Club luncheon in Louisville on Tuesday, in which Barnhart talked about the football program and his friendship with Joker Phillips. On Kentucky’s performance this season, Mitch said:
“Football is not where we want it to be just yet and we’ve got to work on that. We made some progress and climbed up the hill a little bit and we’re doing some good things in a really tough league but we’ve found that we’ve stubbed our toes a little bit. We’ve got to figure that out and we’ll get that figured out.”
Mitch follows that by saying that Joker is one of his dearest friends and that he “thinks the world of him,” referencing their 9-year partnership at UK. When it comes to business? “We just have to figure out the football piece and how we get that going in the right direction.”
Make of this what you will. Personally, I’d like to know what “good things” the Cats are doing in the SEC right now, because I can’t think of a single thing.
