Our fearless leader, Matt Jones, went back to his old stomping grounds at CBS for a podcast with Matt Norlander. The two former co-workers gathered around a couple of microphones to discuss everything one would need to know about the Cats and Cards.
A quick rundown from Norlander:
— From the beginning: Jones did used to write for the blog, so we get reacquainted to start things off, then talk about how much Kentucky fans hate Goodman and Parrish.
— 6:01: It’s pretty fair to say Kentucky is not playing as completely as it could be. Why is that? How are the fans reacting to this season so far? They seem balanced, surprisingly.
— 10:50: What’s up with Terrence Jones?
— 14:39: Talking U of L-UK, and so much of it is Pitino vs. Calipari. The two purely hate each other. Jones offers up some anecdotes.
— 18:00: Normally, the UK players get up for this game, but it’s not something that consumes them. This year, that doesn’t seem to be the case.
— 23:58: Talking national hoops with Jones. There’s a group of 11 he sees as the most likely to make the Final Four. Beyond that, it’s a big drop-off in terms of New Orleans expectations.
— 29:52: Wrapping it up with some NYE talk and the Duke-UNC/UK-Louisville rivalry comparison.
