Its been a while since Real Gimel had a public interview. So I was delighted to read KSR Friend of the Site(tm) Alan Cutler’s run-in with the former Wildcat. don’t make a broken nose joke
Gimel mentions that he feels more comfortable being involved with the program with the regime change: “I didn’t really get a chance to meet Coach Gillispie or really talk to him, but from what I’ve seen so far and from what I’ve heard so far, it’s very welcoming for some of the former players right now. That makes it exciting for all of us. We’re excited to see what Coach Calipari is going to do with all the guys who are coming in and him in general. He brings an exciting style of basketball. We’re looking for it.”
If I was running the UKAA — be prepared, people, I’m foreshadowing about 35% of my writing for the next two months now — during one of the non-conference games I would organize a free-throw contest with Jared Prickett and a fan. With roughly 15 seconds to go, Jared Prickett would be replaced by Gimel. If Gimel won the contest, we would all just blame Travis Ford.
I’m still waiting for my 1993-94 retro jerseys to purchase, UK Athletics Store!!!!
