Now that KSR has gotten pretty big, and Matt Jones and Aaron Cordero have become mega-celebrities in the state of Kentucky, access to the program has increased for our crew. But, as the Prime Minister of Suck I don’t get that same kind of access. Which is too bad because I would love to interview Mitch Barnhart. Popularity has always gone up and down for Mitch, and always will for the athletic director at any school. But, he has always come off as a nice guy who generally has given honest answers. Which is why I would love to ask him some questions. For instance:
1) Is there any plan to play BCS teams other than Louisville in the non-conference AND do you think that would be a good idea?
2) Your first year as AD the football team finished 7-5 and the team has not improved, record-wise, from that season since then. Is that disappointing for you or do you think the overall program has improved in your time?
3) Any big plans for Commonwealth Stadium beyond the scoreboards and is a brand new stadium an option?
1) Even though it turned into a disaster, do you think Billy Gillispie was the right choice at the time?
2) Did Tubby Smith really find that fax to make Randolph Morris eligible, and if so, who the hell still uses fax machines?
3) If the Yum Center had not been built, would there be a push to build a new arena, or did UL’s new arena speed up that process?
Those would be my 6 questions I would want answered. What would be your top 2-3 questions you want answered by the AD? Maybe Matt can ask them next time him and Mitch talk.
