The next coach could be stepping into a decent situation talent wise, but it also would not surprise me to see Joker win 3-4 games and be retained another season. Unfortunately, I have seen very little out of Joker that makes me believe he is going to be able to get it done on any acceptable level at UK (which is obviously a different standard from the basketball team).
If Matt Roark doesn't become Tim Tebow and end the streak against Tennessee, Joker has an even shorter leash.
I think they win three games this season, none in the SEC, and that is what gets Joker canned. And even then, what is out there? I'm hoping Arkansas hires Charlie Strong so UK can make a run at Gus Malzahn.
