    Coach for life?

    Coach for next year, certainly.

    The last two weeks UK has looked better, I admit. However I don't see the program going really anywhere under him. Tennessee is really bad this year.

    According to the announcers, Barnhart was emphatic in his support for Joker. That was before the game.

    This is a great way for Joker to go out- great building block for the next coach, IMO.

    Press conference in the morning. Coach Phillips will resign as head coach of UK.
    You heard it here first.

    Just in time for him to join the Franklin-Simpson staff as a "special assistant" who inspires another set of Wildcats to one of the biggest upsets in Kentucky high school history, perhaps?

    Only way Joker leaves is if he resigns IMO. This could be a win, just like the UGA win for Rich Brooks that really starts turning things around. Perhaps not, but I just don't see UK getting rid of a coach after 2 years, especially one that just beat a rival UK hadn't beaten since the mid-80s.

    Joker doesn't have much to hang his hat on. But one thing he has done...stopped the Spurrier streak & now the UT streak.

    I'll believe it when it happens. I don't think it's going to happen.

    I don't think there is any doubt that this UK team has improved a lot as the year went on. For the most part, the defense has been very good. The games where points were racked up is more due to terrible offense than the defense. Joker isn't going anywhere and I think he clearly deserves another year.

    What evidence is there that this team has improved? Beating an awful Ole Miss team or a pathetic UT team?
