Mark Fox will not pat you on the back

Mark Fox opened his postgame press conference by saying Kentucky whooped his Georgia Bulldogs. The two teams, tied for second place in the SEC entering the game, didn’t play the conference battle he expected. It was all Kentucky, all afternoon.

Afterward, Jerry Tipton asked Mark Fox what he thought about 23,000-plus fans showing up to Rupp Arena in the middle of a blizzard early Saturday afternoon, and ¬†Fox wasn’t up for gushing over Big Blue Nation.

“What, you want me to comment on the fan base? They don’t need any more pats on the back.”

Well then.

    Well…it was a diss…but let’s be honest…it was a response to a pretty ridiculous question to ask the opposing coach.

    Tipton is an f’n tool, rivaled only by the newcomer on the block.

    Tipton is a moron and a embarrassment to the program.

      Well, Tipton really is not part of the program. He is an embarrassment to the LHL.

    It’s people like Tipton that gives all in Kentucky a bad rap, everyone in this state is not this stupid. No one in the media, at UK, fans and opposing teams don’t like this clown. He’s reminds me of Katie Couric asking a man after 911 how he felt losing his wife in the WTC, morons asking the dumbest questions and getting paid for it. How do you think he felt you dumb bitch, and I guess Jerry was waiting for Coach Fox to say they’re great, I love them, I wish we could play here every day. Come on Jerry are you really that stupid or is it when you were hired by that terrible liberal rag you work for back in God knows when (all BBN knows is it’s been way too long) your IQ did not have to be double digits. Do BBN but more than that yourself a favor, buy a rocking chair and sat on the porch.

      I agree that Tipton is not the sharpest tool in the shed. With that being said, your elementary school grammar has me scratching my head as to how you think you’re in a position to call anyone “stupid.”

    Fox really wanted to say “I don’t understand why Kentucky has all the blue hairs down in the lower levels, they need to put students down there , hand out cheer sheets, make everyone wear the same color t-shirts and play techno music non-stop Then UK would be 82-0, not 80-2”

    Jerry Tipton writes his stories before hand and fishes for comments to support his points… Its SUPPOSED to be the other way around. That’s why he is always asking obvious and dumb questions.

    Congrats to Coach Cal, each player, and assistant coaches for the win. The question should not of been asked but the answer was clearly disrespectful. UK fans, and I am one of them for six decades now, should be acknowledged and respected…even when a dumb question is asked. Nuff said.

    Jeff Schrembs is an entitled moron for the last six decades. Mark Fox shouldn’t give a damn about UK fans, He’s paid to coach Georgia, and please their program and fans. He doesn’t owe UK fans anything, and Tipton, even less. We won. They lost. Nowhere NEAR ’nuff said. BTW, what bout when UK has played football over the last six decades? Did you demand some fan love when Florida, Georgia, and all too many others routed us off the field?

    It was a dumb question to ask of an opposing coach who just got blown out.

    Who dug up Jerry Tipton and how can we put him back?
