LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky coach Joker Phillips has tried to maintain a sense of humor during what has been a difficult season.
Questions regarding his future are no laughing matter, though.
The Wildcats (1-8, 0-6 Southeastern Conference) lost their seventh straight game Saturday at Missouri, ensuring a third consecutive losing season and putting them on pace for their worst finish since going 2-9 in 2004.
Injuries have forced Phillips to play 26 freshmen against one of the nation's toughest schedules. That hasn't stopped Wildcats fans from expressing their frustration: Calling for his dismissal on radio talk shows and not showing up for games - attendance has fallen off at 67,942-seat Commonwealth Stadium.
Players say they still support Phillips and will try to finish the season with three wins to help the embattled coach.
