It’s just a Jeff Goodman day on KSR, isn’t it? During CBS’ College Basketball Podcast, released today, Goodman, Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander discussed a number of topics, including the UK/UofL game and Rick Pitino’s recent comments about his retirement. Most interesting was this quote from Goodman after he picked the Cats to win:
“It’s a rivalry game. I’m not saying that Louisville’s nearly as talented [as UK], I think they’re overrated as hell right now. But, when you go into Rupp and it’s a rivalry game, it’s the one you circle all year…I think Louisville’s going to be up for this one and I think Rick’s a better coach than Cal. Period.”
Goodman says this around the 35:36 mark of the podcast, which you can find here (go on, give it a listen. They actually talk about the game quite a bit). Is his claim that Rick is a better coach than Cal crazy? Point blank, period? Maybe Matt and crew can get an explanation when he appears on KSTV tonight.
