I literally start to laugh out loud when I think back to joker giving the speech about "operation win" when he took over the program. It's just an absolute joke and I'm glad to see that there aren't too many people behind him anymore. The only way we can get rid of him is for people to flat out not go to games or support him in any way. Sorry if that seems unfair or mean but we've tried as fans to give support and be fair and look where we are. We would not tolerate this mediocrity in basketball. No one was worried about hurting Gillispie's feelings we just got him the hell out of there because it was the right move. The same should be done with joker. And to anyone who argues that he needs more time look at the Gillispie situation. He was here two years it didn't work so we got rid of him. I don't think there's anyone out there who would say , "Yeah Calipari's great and all but I think Gillispie didn't get enough time." We have to move on. The longer we have him the worse it is for the program.
Ok ! I am more into the Basketball Cats than football. However it would be nice to have a football team to get behind and have hope for from year to year. The last 3 years I can't get interested in the Kentucky football team because ....well we SUCK. We get our behinds handed to us by allmost every team we play.
I am not a Joker Fan nor a hater. I know the powers to be made him our coach because he was an X Kentucky good player. Well they should take the lead from our Basketball Program, we never had one of our star Basketball players become coach of the Basketball program. Being a great player does not mean they can coach. The Football program needs to get off some money and get us a good Coach not some X player the AD is in love with.
Thats just my opionion.
Anyone want to bet on the Samford game as a win? I made an offer for a bet last week that visiting teams would have more fans in our stadium than we will by the end of the season and didn't have any takers. Where are all of the Joker fans now? Dogg where are ya?
I hate to say it because he did get us on the bowl roll, but Rich Brooks was for the most part a bad hire too. He did take us from suck to mediocrity, but that's about it. Oh had the Tuna come on board! What really bothered me was the fact we had another up and coming coach that wanted the job in a big way, and actually put in for it. What happened to him? Well, he won the super bowl with the Saints and is still coaching them! Mitch didn't want to take a chance and hire Cal after Tubby, so he went after Billy G. He didn't want to take a chance with football so he hired Rich and then Joker. I'd say his hand was forced with Cal after his pick with Billy, and we know how that's turned out; final 8, final 4, #8. Let's see if he's learned anything yet? Go Mike Leach, a different kind of nut, bring back the air raid! The guy did a pretty good job the last time he was here. All he does is win! Take a chance Mitch!
Great post Rob! I feel even worse lol. Now I will bet we don't win another game. Samford is going to pick up another win (us) and we won't.
