We should dress Joker up in a red and white striped shirt so We could play some Where's Joker........ we could just point him out on campus easily :-)
Unless there is some sort of criticism for him not being there, there is no reason to ask why he is not there.
Therefore asking is grinding an axe.
This looks even moreso now that the goal post is being moved.
Case in point...
The above post states:
I read the following quote from one of the recruits on campus this weekend and simply asked "Where's Joker". Yup, that's an agenda all right.
"UK head coach Joker Phillips wasn't there during Cooper's visit, but he said the Cats' assistants told him Phillips would talk to him on the phone soon."
But the OP states:
Couple of recruits saying they had a good visit to UK, but spent their time with assistant coaches because Joker wasn't around. Seems surprising that he would be gone with such a big recruiting weekend going on. Was he out recruiting on the road this weekend?
So, the OP stated a couple rather than the one supplied. Secondly, the OP did not merely ask where Joker is but made the statement in a manner that spoke negatively of Joker ("Seems surprising that he would be gone with such a big recruiting weekend going on.")
But, this type of thread is not a one time deal. It is repeated over, and over, and over, and over again and I am not referencing other posters.
So, yes, it is a cheap shot attack. One that has been repeated over and over.
This is a no-brainer.
It's the op's mo... Take passive aggressive cheap shot, then when he gets called out he plays the ,"what, me? Huh?" routine. What he does is the definition of an agenda post.
By golly George, I think you got it!!!
and you mo is to find realistic UK fans, that actually admit all things aren't sunshine and roses, and berate their legitimite questions about the program.
As far as the OP:
But the OP states:
"Couple of recruits saying they had a good visit to UK, but spent their time with assistant coaches because Joker wasn't around. Seems surprising that he would be gone with such a big recruiting weekend going on. Was he out recruiting on the road this weekend?"
How on earth do you guys call that negative? The OP says "seems suprising Joker wasn't there" and then asks if anyone knows why? If you know why, answer him. If you don't, stfu!
Don't worry Minter, I may not always agree with you, but you post are fine. There's just a bunch of whinny little "female dogs" around here who would rather bash realist than discuss UK football.
Oh well, I guess we interpreted this differently. I posed the question this morning when the only recruit whom had been interviewed mentioned that Joker was there. There were't any recruits that mentioned speaking with Joker publically until almost 2pm. That's why the question was asked.
Would it be a negative for Joker to not be on campus for a big recruiting weekend? I'm not sure. I simply know that Hop and others were being highly critical of John L Smith for being away from campus the weekend Arkansas hosted Ryan Timmonns for an unofficial visit. I assumed since they were being so critical of Smith, the same sentiment would hold true for the same situation happening at UK?
Lets play nice, fellas.. Where's DOAVH? His spirit seems present.
He isn't here Minter that is a fact I know.
It smells like microwaved homeless people in here.
The point is that it isn't surprising he wasn't there. July is when most of the vacations take place, these guys need a break sometime. Second, these were unofficial visits in which case the staff does not have the same investment as official visits. the suggestion of surprise is a criticism.
Now, if you weren't such a complete idiot with your head shoved up your whiny bitch ass, you would see that.
But, the op stated a couple of recruits not one. That amplified the negative connotation.
This "big recruiting weekend" had unofficial visits.
I did not criticize Smith for being away and explicitly pointed out that Joker had been previously been away when a recruit came in near the fourth of July on an unofficial visit when the criticism for Timmons appearance at Arkansas occurred.
So, I held the same sentiment each of the three times.
The questioning each of the three times was nonsesne (Joker 2x and Smith once).
So, get your damn facts straight when you think to put words in my mouth.
Stop being such a dumbass bitch.
Wow, I can call you a name too. Whoop-tee-fucking-doo.
Try sticking to the posts instead of attacking others.
I didn't attack anyone that hadn't already attacked Minter, so I guess you should take your own advice.'
And "the suggestion of surprise" is an attack? Geez. Why don't you guys make up a list of what we can say, because your F'n dictionary must be way different than mine if surprised means attack.

Maybe he was and is in Happy Valley Pa. I hear that that there is a coaching convention going on there. At least I think so because there is coaches from almost every school that plays football in the country there.
So so tired of the bickering. We're ALL UK fans, can't we put aside the Joker stuff (whether you want him as HC or not) and just keep it focused on football? Damn!

No, I didn't.
I explicitly pointed out the posts and stated that such statements had been repeated.
There is an enormous difference between that and you calling people bitches. No comparison.
Am I returning the "favor" and treating you with the same contempt? Yes. But, that wouldn't happen if you had not crossed the line first. So, don't be a dumbass and make stupid equivalences.
THIS X1000000000000000000000000!!!!!!!!!! This stuff is getting so old..it never fails that over 2/3 of each thread is just people going back and forth. Discuss, agree, disagree, just don't get to where everyone has an agenda or LOD or SSP4L. Just ignore

call it waht you will, but a bunch of you guys pile on posters like me Minter, disecting every vowel and consanent of our post to accuse us of being negative. Stop doing it, and I'll stop fighting back. I just want to talk UK football, and whether you think so or not, knowing where Joker is when big recruits are on campus is pertinent information.

Tell you what, immediately after touting my stubbornness, I will give you the last word. Go ahead and take it.
Hilarious reading some of this. I'm critical of joker too. I just don't make it my daily fmgoal to make stuff up so he looks bad to message board readers.
This man speaketh the truth.
Keep Calm & Stoops On..
Hope that was worth it and you enjoyed your time here. No way Chris or Matt let that one fly.
How did I get on the Rivals board?
Why does EVERY, SINGLE football thread on this board have to devolve into this? It happens EVERY, SINGLE time.
I just don't understand. This can't be fun. It can't be.
Jokers in Bristol if you belive ESPN. I don't really care, what I want to know is if we've got sombody recuiting Penn State. If not we should be!
I actually didn’t call you anything. I was talking about those who constantly attack legitimite posters, and ruin threads about legitmite topics by accusing other posters of being negative, rather than making actual contributions to the actual topic. I may have insinuated that your post fell into that category, but I didn’t bold faced cuss at you or call you anything like you did me. The fact that what I said angered you so much though makes me think you must be feeling guilty about something.
