    Are we not a sorry A$$ excuse for a football team? This team should have been fired up to avoid the upset and we have no playing and no coaching. I am thinking about starting to root for the toppers.

    The world can plainly see that Taggart is a better coach than Phillips and it would be just as easy to conclude that WKU has better players as well.

    If we lose this game to WKU, you can count me as a member of the fire Joker bandwagon. I am so sick of seeing our team get the hell beat out of us by weak teams. I don’t care if WKU is better this year. This is our state. We should be killing them. So sick of this. 10-0 right now. Ridiculous.

    Minter should be fired at halftime. Let him go back to coaching high school football again where he hired him from. We have the worst defense in college football. Gave up over 400 yds to kent state and now this shit from wku. I could coach defense better than his sorry ass

    # 15, of Louisville and Kentucky…only one has fired a black coach.
    Until 2011, the Cards had never had a black starting QB. NEVER. Until the year 2011. Unbelievable.

    WKU has OWNED both lines of scrimmage the entire game. Cobble and Rumph are both overweight duds. We still have no clue on pass defense either. Let’s hope we get beat so this thing can get even uglier than it already has.

Hurry up to get to the line and look to the sideline, scratch our butt shout out randomly to the linemen, take in the crowd, order a hot dog from a vendor in the stands, try to figure out where we are and what we’re doing again and then take a timeout we don’t have.
