LEXINGTON, Ky. - Following an embarrassing loss to Arkansas, Kentucky head coach Joker Phillips was once again asked about his job status.

However, it was disguised a little bit this week. The question was, "When is the last time you talked to (UK athletics director) Mitch Barnhart and what was it about?".

Phillips responded, "We talk a couple times a week. It's just a small talk. It's nothing, you know, he's been very encouraging and nothing what you want to get at.

"One thing Mitch and I, we're friends, and that's more important to me than anything on the business side. We are friends. And I can tell you this, there's not a lot of people out there that can say they are friends with their AD. There's not a lot. One of the things I do cherish and appreciate is our friendship."
