Joker Phillips wasn’t kidding about supporting Stoops

Do you remember how former Kentucky Coach Joker Phillips said even though he wouldn’t be the coach, he’d always support his team and that he’d buy into the new coaching staff and get season tickets?

He wasn’t kidding.

After his name came up on Tuesday as Florida’s wide receivers coach, I did a search of the football season ticket holders. The former Kentucky coach and his wife Leslie have five seats between them for the 2013 season. Joker has three seats are in section 126 and Leslie has two seats are in section 127.
