Kentucky football fans, your program is the hands of 50 Cent.
Wildcats coach Joker Phillips told the Louisville Courier-Journal that he doesn’t worry about criticism from outside sources in reference to the struggles of the program after an 11-14 record in two seasons. And he has an inspirational quote from rapper 50 cent from an interview “Fitty” did on “Oprah.”
Said Phillips: “I know this might sound crazy, but I was looking at Oprah – my wife had taped an Oprah show with 50 Cent,” Phillips told the newspaper. “I like to listen to those types of interviews.
“And 50 Cent said you either worry or pray, but you don’t do both. And I don’t worry. I don’t worry.”
We are impressed that 50 Cent paraphrased the Bible with words of wisdom but we hope that the UK coach doesn’t take all of 50 Cent’s advice to heart considering this is the same rapper that once said, “If the roof on fire, let the motherf***** burn.”
