Kentucky head football coach Joker Phillips responded to questions about his future.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Kentucky head coach Joker Phillips was asked on Monday why he believes he deserves more time to get the program turned around. His answer: a young team.

"Well, I mean, we got 72 freshmen and sophomores in this program.  We just played a program that has 50 juniors and seniors in their program," Phillips said.

"We got to be better than that.  But we got a lot of good, young players playing ball for us.  (Indiscernible) this ought to be good.  When we got out of the truck, the exact same thing Rich said when we got beat by Ohio U.  We got a lot of young players here.  Again, 72 freshmen and sophomores.  A lot of them playing significant roles.

"My job is to make sure we win football games, continue to do the things we need to do to win football games.  The first order of business is focusing on Florida," said Phillips.
