It was obvious from the beginning that Joker would not work out. He didn’t have it. Whatever it is that successful coaches like Nick Saban and Charlie Strong have. Joker can’t even hold Willie Taggert’s jock. He might be a great guy but he’s not a great coach. I knew it back when he was promoted to Head Coach. Two year have passed and, finally, the rest of the Big Blue Nation has caught on.
With the loss to the Hilltoppers, Joker Phillips ended the discussion on his suitability for the HC position. Mitch Barnhart will terminate Joker’s employment as Kentucky’s Football Coach at the end of the season. Barnhart would be justified in releasing Joker immediately.
No self-respecting SEC Football Program should ever lose to a Sun Belt team. There simply is no excuse for it.
FIRE JOKER NOW!
If Mitch Barnhart is smart, he immediately calls and locks up Bobby Petrino. Place a morality clause in the contract if necessary. That should satisfy the moralists and busybodies who think that a Football Coach should be a Saint and walk on water with Jesus and John the Baptist.
Whatever happens, Kentucky Football needs a John Calipari type hire to get Kentucky Football on track to winning. Barnhart needs to find a rockstar coach. Nothing less will do.
