...and not just any stickers, they got helmet stickers.  ESPN gave both Joker Phillips and Mike Hartline a helmet sticker for their performances in the win over South Carolina.  Here is what the Worldwide Leader had to say:
Kentucky quarterback Mike Hartline: Making a strong bid as the SEC's most improved player this season, Hartline was also long on courage Saturday night. He stood in there repeatedly against a fierce South Carolina rush and completed 32 of 42 passes for 349 yards, for four touchdowns and no interceptions. His 24-yard scoring pass to Randall Cobb on a fourth-and-7 play was the game-winner for the Wildcats in their 31-28 victory over the Gamecocks. Hartline, who's been through the ringer during his career at Kentucky, threw three of his touchdowns in the second half to rally the Wildcats from a 28-10 halftime deficit.
Kentucky coach Joker Phillips: A lot of teams would have folded their tents after getting down 28-10, especially coming off three straight losses. But there’s a toughness and a resilience about the Wildcats that reflects their head coach. Their 31-28 comeback win over South Carolina was Kentucky’s first ever over a Steve Spurrier-coached team, and props go out to Phillips for keeping his team in tune mentally and emotionally during a very difficult stretch.
Take that, Spurrier. Joker is undefeated against you! Go Cats.
