Joker Phillips: “You’re either with us or against us”

In Louisville for the annual Jefferson County football luncheon of the UK Alumni Association, head coach Joker Phillips made an interesting declaration.

Rick Bozich of WDRB in Louisville reports that Phillips challenged his program’s long-suffering fans.

“Big Blue Nation, I’m challenging you,” Phillips said. “You’re either with us or against us.”

Part of this in response to reports that season ticket sales are off about 25 percent from last year. Our own Jennifer Smith reported that as of earlier this week season sales were running about 10,000 below last year at the same time, which was down from the previous season.

I can understand Phillips believing his team deserves support. On the other hand, considering the current discontent, not sure how Phillips “love-us-or-leave-us” gauntlet will go over.
