Six hours until Kentucky football names its starter

When the UK coaching staff meets with the media after practice at around 6:00 pm today, expect to hear these words from Joker Phillips: “Max Smith is going to be our starter.” The sophomore quarterback has separated himself from the pack in this offseason’s quarterback competition and the staff should be ready to announce today, after watching tape from Saturday’s scrimmage.

“Whenever Joker’s ready, I’m ready,” offensive coordinator Randy Sanders said about naming a starter. “He’s my boss. We’ll do it when he says let’s do it.”

Kyle Tucker of the Courier-Journal tweeted that he’ll eat his own shoe if Max Smith isn’t named the starter today. As fun as that would be to watch, I think everyone is ready to move forward with Smith as the quarterback and begin preparation for the Louisville game.

We’ll know in six hours.

    I bet defensive coordinators will be on KSR all day waiting for this announcement so they can start preparing their defense.

    1)correct, they have to be scared.
    Joker is a genius when it comes to
    terrorizing other teams.

    Defensive coordinators will see the same offense regardless of which QB we have in the game. Nothing downfield,,,,dink here and there and hope someone makes a play. I will bet anyone that by the second quarter or even sooner of the Louisville game you will you will see 9 or 10 Louisville defenders within five yards of the line.

    After the third game we will know what we have. So if UK wins three non con games and wins two SEC Games does he stay or go? If he wins three non con games and one or no SEC Games?

    You all should want these kids to succeed more than you want Joker to fail.
    I’m not the biggest Joker supporter, but I want to see these kids go out and make a bowl.
