The Hot Seat Bowl against Ole Miss (named by Pat Forde)
They play in Lexington on Nov. 5, and by then the Wildcats will be 3-5 and Rebels 2-6. Houston Nutt will be on borrowed time in his fourth year, and Kentucky fans have jumped ship on Joker Phillips in a remarkable hurry. (There were empty seats for normal lock sellouts against archrival Louisville and unbeaten Florida.) Phillips has only had 17 games as head coach, winning eight. Most Wildcats fans don't seem to recall that predecessor Rich Brooks was 5-12 at the same point in his UK career, on his way to three straight losing seasons before pushing the program to respectability.
Note to Pat Forde,
1. Rich Brooks had a successful history BEFORE coming to Kentucky.
2. Joker Phillips was handed a program that was heading in the right direction and has managed to turn it into a shipwreck.
