This is why we love Jay Bilas

I get it, we are supposed to hate everybody and everything associated with Duke University.  But how can you not be a fan of Jay Bilas?  That guy is almost always well thought out, fair, and throws in a touch of funny every so often.  Plus, and most importantly, he doesn’t just suck up to Duke and the ACC all the time.  (Cough…cough…Mike Patrick)  But when you talk about Bilas, I think I may have found the top reason why UK fans (and everybody else) should really be a fan of this guy, and the reason is this video:

 

To be honest, I thought the other guy in the video was funnier, but Bilas’ line about wanting a martini was classic.  He also basically assaults that poor girl about the prom, but she seems to enjoy it.  Ah, the life of a 6’10” geeky high school ball player.

    I will always remember Bilas (and the rest of the “Gameday” crew) for outright laughing at our program during the UNC game Gillispie’s second year. Surprisingly, Bob Knight was the only one not laughing at UK’s program.

    I’ve hated all of them since that day.

    I don’t always agree with Jay but I think he is the most unbiased personality at the Worldwide Leader. He does almost always present his opinions and commentary in the a very well thought out professional manner. He also seems to really understand the game and I’ve often thought he would make a good coach at the college level.

    i used to respect his opinion, albeit he be a dooky, until i found out he is a lawyer. that’s almost more repulsive than being a dooky.

    5. Oh, the one that’s dead and has the video dedicated to him? Insulting a dead man, nice.

    Watched your amazing game yesterday. UK is the anal cavity of the SEC. Once we add a couple more teams, UK should consider bolting for CUSA.

    Bilas is great in this video. Not many high school kids, much less athletes, could have done so well

    4…So, I guess that is why you read and post on a blog run by a lawyer, and a Duke law graduate at that.

    1.) The program deserved to be laughed at during Gillispie’s tenure

    at the 7:59 mark someone definitively said “Lebron James” when the girl was asked what she was afraid of! Listen
