I'd have never said that. Would much prefer to have been 7-6/6-7 than to have beaten TN.
The 'fans' are always the lagging indicators. The last time ticket sales were this low was just prior to the 2006 season. I see some striking similarities.

Simple answer lawdog. Get a coach who can get the job done. Whether that's joker or whomever. The most important thing an ad can do is hire the right coach. I personally believe our stadium, facilities, recruiting budget etc. is good enough to win with. Not the best in the sec but they're good enough. Most of the fans I talk to around home say they're done with UK football until Joker proves he's the man for the job or a coaching change is made. Nobody wants Joker to fail but all the excitement is done gone from football. If he was hired away from another program I don't think people would feel this way. Joker being here took the excitement out of having a new head coach for the fans because of being familiar with him. Don't think the fans are boycotting UK football as much as Joker. If he's the right coach things will get better on the field and fan support will rise and so will season tickets. Recruits want to play for coaches more than schools these days. For example look at Billy G he had all the resources and UK tradition and he would have never gotten the job done here. It could be as simple as a head coach and then again it might need a whole culture change. After this season I believe things will be clear where we stand with Joker and the future of UK football. We will either be really excited for the future or having a coaching search. Just for the record I honestly think Joker deserves this year to prove his worth.
