Joker Talks Cards & Gators During His Weekly Presser

09/20/2011 09:41 AM

UK head coach Joker Phillips says he’s incredibly frustrated the Cats lost to arch-rival Louisville at home Saturday for the first time since 2006. But he says he refuses to dwell on the loss. Instead, Phillips says he plans to fix a few things … including the Cats’ offense.

Joker is now focusing on Saturday’s game against the Florida Gators, the first SEC opponent on UK’s schedule this season and the nemesis that has defeated the Cats 25 years in a row. Phillips says his team is not taking the challenge lightly.

Florida is known for their special teams. And Joker says he’s already working on protecting their punter.

The Gators lead the nation in rushing defense while Kentucky struggled to get just 35 yards in a 24-17 loss to Louisville last week.
