Have you ever wanted to sit down with Mitch Barnhart for an hour to pick his brain on all things UK athletics? Unfortunately, you and I won’t ever get that opportunity, unless we caddy for him at University Club or catch him riding solo at an Applebee’s one night. So it’s a good thing we know Matt Jones.
Matt sat down with Mitch at an oversized table for a one-hour interview last week for KSTV to discuss a range of topics, from facilities to coaching to Kentucky being awesome at basketball. Part one of the interview focused heavily on football and Joker Phillips’ future in Lexington. It’s the most open we’ve ever seen Mitch in an interview and he says some really interesting stuff about the Cats.
