Joker Phillips was a large part of the Kentucky football program for a long period of time.  As a player and coach, Solid Blue fans grew with Phillips over the years.

But as Joker said upon his firing...he just didn't produce the results fast enough to stay put in Lexington.

Wins over the Ole' Ball Coach and South Carolina...ending the losing streak to Tennessee and almost toppling eventual champ Auburn weren't good enough to be kept.

Saturday marks Phillips' return to Commonwealth Stadium for the first time, not wearing a UK shade of blue.

This time around, Joker will be a part of the Florida coaching staff.

So how does his successor see the return and what does his new boss think about it?
