Sorry all you "uk fans" on here who thought you met your agenda lol, but I got direct confirmation from the source of sources, Joker gets 1 more year!!! Ha!!! Expect Mitch to back the coach publicly in 3 weeks(approx), he has decided to back Phillips!! I think it's great, and it worked with brooks, so I can't blame him. Go cats, beat gators.
But, the expectation of bowl eligibility will be given for 13... Good luck cats!!
Another year as in next year? Or the rest of this year?
I doubt Mitch has made any decision after 3 weeks. The situation could get worse. It could get better. My point is, we just don't know.
I can't wait for this whole schizm between Joker supporters and Joker opponents to be gone. I'm a UK fan. Whichever side that makes me, that's where I am.
Thank god for Basketball
Been a Cat fan since August of '92
If Mitch keeps Joker for one more year after this he'll be on the bus with him on the way out of town at the end of 2013. No disrespect to Joker, but his teams stink.
Man I'm with you. I've reached the point that I want Joker to be fired if it means UK fans can unite and get behind a coach and put our butts in the seats again. I just want commonwealth to be rocking every week regardless of who the coach is.
Who's going to fire Mitch?
Only at UK, would I even entertain the idea that the OP is right.
I'm calling . You don't want a change, op. But thanks for the post?

Joker Phillips you really think mitch is gonna tell you you're fired with 9 more games left? Shouldn't you be worried about Florida.
It doesn't get much worse than losing to Western.
Yes, it does. Losing to Western and Louisville and soon number 27 in a row to Florida and then to USC and then......................... Are you getting it?
I hope Barnhart keeps him another year because then it will be a total embarrassment when they play another SEC team and the stands have 30,000 instead of the normal 60,000 in the seats.
Money and lack of it will be the driving force. Follow the money and disregard these kind of foolish posts. The more season ticket holders fold the better.
The meanest dog in Taiwan.
No chance you heard this, If UK finishes the season the rest of the way most people expect it to Mitch's hand will be forced.
It is more than likely that UK enters it's final two home games against Vanderbilt and Samford with no more than two wins, if that is the case I see no more than 30,000 people for either of those games. The financial setback would be disastrous and would only get worse heading into the 2013 season.

If the OP. has any credibility, Joker would've already gotten an extension going INTO this year.
Mitch maybe dumb, but he ain't stupid.
You hope to see that? Are you kidding me?
I actually agree with the OP. I think Mitch looks at the situation with Brooks when everyone was calling for his head and he got it turned around. Losing to Florida, SCarolina, Ga, Ark and Tenn have been pretty much expected anyway. Anyone who says different is lying. I do think UK will need to win at least 2 of the 3 home games with Sanford, Miss St and Vandy and at least play competitive with Mizzou and Tenn. A 3-9 record is highly likely, but, there were alot of folks calling for that anyway. At best, 5-7.
If Joker is retained for next year, Mitch will have to shutdown the non-revenue sports due to lack of funds.
Believe what you want, doesn't matter to me! Let's go cats, beat them gators... I'm trusting my source, glad I can stop listening to all these people filled with so much hate! And it ain't bluesuave ;)...
The situations Brooks and Phillips walked into couldn't have been more different. The trajectory of the program after they were here 3 years is different. Brooks had been a COY, a successful HC at a BCS school for years and a HC in the NFL. Phillips has never been a coordinator at any school but UK. Brooks knew how to organize a staff and deal with the media and fans. Phillips has shown none of those abilities. This is not the same situation despite the fact that some people want to portray it as such. If things don't change dramatically I see no way Barnhart can keep him another year. Financial reality and the embarrassment of the BOT will eventually rear their heads and force the issue even if Barnhart doesn't see a problem.
You guys are nuts...John Calipari could fire Mitch in a second....don,t even think he couldnt.
OP is wrong. I called my source and got direct confirmation that Phillips has already been fired, processed, and fed to the insatiable hunger of Charlie Weiss and Mark Mangino in an underground cannibalistic buffet. Mangino and Weiss have absorbed Phillips' power by consuming his flesh.
The Phillips you will see on the sideline today is actually a clone engineered from the DNA of Bear Bryant, Knute Rockne, and MLK.
Also, Mitch Barnhart is a lizard person and the reason he hasn't been more visible in the media recently is due to his annual skin-shedding ritual performed at Darley at Jonabell Farm under the close supervision of Sheik Mohammed, the leader of the lizard people.
The clone process was funded by Mohammed's vast Dubai fortune and Lizard-Mitch has obtained nearly $2B in funding from Mohammed to build a floating football stadium that will have a capacity of over 200,000. The stadium will land in Lexington early on game day, pick up the fans and tailgaters, and slowly float over the city of Louisville for kickoff. All urinal and toilet discharge will be diverted directly onto Tom Jurich's desk, where he will seethe quietly at the audacity of the UK-Lizard person alliance.
Sorry to burst your bubbles guys, but the lizard-boosters have spoken. I, for one, welcome our new lizard overlords.
I'm hearing the exact opposite obviously, but sources can vary I guess... I guess you're kidding, but I'm not lol. This is rock solid info per Jake Trenton, so you can draw your own conclusions!
Jake Trenton is a lizard-person, FYI.
