Cal will be on “The O’Reilly Factor” tonight

BlNPAm2CcAA-sv6

John Calipari finished up day one of his book tour by stopping by “The O’Reilly Factor,” and tweeted a picture of himself and Bill O’Reilly on set with the following caption:

Just got done with Bill O’Reilly’s show. Wow. I’m going to be honest, normally I’m not very nervous doing interviews but he’s pretty big. The interview will air sometime tonight during his show at 8 p.m. He said he wants to come to a Kentucky game. What game should we invite him to? 

So many strange things here: 1) Cal being nervous about anything; 2) Cal being O’Reilly in the first place; and 3) O’Reilly wanting to come to a Kentucky game. What game should Cal invite him down for?

The interview airs at 8 p.m. ET tonight on Fox News.

    O’Reilly had a segment a few years ago calling people from Appalachia stupid. Wonder why he’d want to come to a Kentucky game?

      Yes. So why would he want to be around some of them?

      Not sure. Tune in tonight and see if he says why.

      I say seat him in the rafters with the fiesty fans who drive in from Appalachia for the games and lets see how long it takes for his loud mouth (and that other hole of his that makes up most of his personality) to get tossed down to the lower arena!

      This is the same guy that told the son f a veteran to SHUT UP on his show when the kid was talking about his dad being a democrat and wanting the war to end before he gave his life for our freedom…

      @Hill I did watch that episode. I couldn’t believe what he was saying to the kid. The guy is a jerk. I could careless about his political preferences. So I don’t have that issue. He’s just so disrespectful to almost all his guest. Thought Marilyn Manson was gonna eat his throat on there one night. Keep Bill out of Rupp!

      UK vs UofL :)…. Just because Cal goes on O’Reilly does not mean he is left or right. They have a lot of Left wing interviews on FOX. They have a lot of everything. Only mouths like Media Matters feeds it’s people crap about Fox and Rush or any thing remotely to the right. Have you noticed how the left wingers start their statements by “I Hate”! The most intolerant people in the country. Now, back to our regularly scheduled program.

      4:38 pm April 14, 2014 Permalink

      then i guess “any thing remotely to the right” is BS, because that’s what you’ll find on media matters. go ahead, debunk them.

      secondly, what does “feeds it is people” mean?

    I always knew that Cal was a conservative, you can just tell. He just puts on a front being a liberal to get Bball recruits.



    • UkFanInNoVA

      Cal is financially wealthy but he’s not CRAZY wealthy like the Bill Gates and Warren Buffets of the world. When you’re in that space between “rich” and “super rich”, you’re not necessarily as quick to support a political party that wants to redistribute your wealth… 😉



    • schwing
      4:39 pm April 14, 2014 Permalink

      right. those guys are smart enough to realize they couldn’t possibly spend half of their money, that’s why they are consciously redistributing it themselves.



    • Dee W.

      Cal doesn’t show sides – it isn’t relevant to his current job. He has in Bill Clinton, Condoleeza Rice, Steve Beshear, Mitch McConnell, etc.

      Although the way the mainstream media including the NYT seems to pick on him you may have a point.



    • HOLLYWOOD Hal

      I agree, Cal is probably a republican. He has a job and pays taxes.

    Politics aside, NO do NOT invite O’Reilly to Rupp. I don’t like him, not because he’s more on the conservative side of the aisle and blatant about it, it’s because he is an unprofessional TARD who when asks a question, his guest, while trying to answer is INTERRUPTED 80% or so of the time. I find that to be highly unprofessional on any journalist who does it, liberal, conservative, moderate, whatever. I get the fact that he doesn’t want things to be spun, but at the same time you can’t claim to be fair and balanced when you interrupt someone every time they try to answer a question. Bill Maher, liberal side, is guilty of this too, just so anyone wanting to attack me tries to complain towards me.

      Both moderators you listed interrupt for a couple of reasons…mostly because the guest is doin the 5 d’s…dodge duck dip dive and dodge the question…also they of course have certain amount of time for the segment….let O’Reilly and Bill M set together at Rupp as long as they cheer for BIG BLUE…I do not really care what their politics are

    U know what cracks me up that politics is interjected into a game, why can’t we just talk about basketball & leave politics out of it Matt & the KSR gang, frat followers? Saw his tweet, then your comment about cracking u up, live your personal believes & biases out of it, just report that he is doing the show for his book tour, I mean it’s not complicated, is it?

    Remember Cal is the great promoter and O’Reilly timeslot is the best to sell his book. O’Reilly is an alum of Harvard maybe they co\uld invite O’Reilly and Obama to come to an UK Harvard game, That way they both could cheer for Harvard and agree on something.

    If I was trying to sell a book I’d go on the O’Reilly factor, even though he’s arrogant, obnoxious, and mostly wrong. Lots of people watch, and Fox News does know a lot more about making profits versus what is ethical.

    O’Reilly says he can’t attend games anymore because of the way people act. I wonder if he just doesn’t like to hear something he doesn’t agree with.

    I watch alot of Fox and it hasn’t swayed me towards either direction. I just like to at least hear what might be closer to the truth than the stations that don’t refute anything Obama spits….the messiah that he is.

    thank goodness mrs. thompson brought this out on ksr i have been a been a hardcore reader and listener since the beginning .
    i can tell you since obama was elected and calipari was hired matt has been making his smartness remarks focused on conservatives and road his high horse insisting obama was the savior and coach cal a strong supporter .
    until obama showed he was a total failure and all the facts showed cal was a conservative who was fiscally responsible he stood his ground if you have old downloads or been a reader since the beginning read them .
    matt jones is a great ky wildcat fan and gives us a wonderful opportunity to get some great info and i commend him but even his cohost make fun of him being insane when he is wrong . look at his tweet today like a child getting a dig on O’reily and calipari’s interview. MATT COME-ON MAN

    Hey all you progressives..he’s on msnbc tomorrow. Happy now!! Guess what..right wingers buy books too and usually if O’Reilly endorses a book it goes to No. 1. But I guess your feelings are more important than a business move that tries to sell books to all people. Watch O’Reilly..you might open your mind. Both parties are corrupt and anyone that solely votes party ticket is gullible.

    Whatever you say about O’Reilly someone could say about Chris Matthews (no, not the football player). I happen to be a Republican but I am not so naïve to think that they, republican politicians, have my best interest at heart if it doesn’t line up with their checkbooks or the donors checkbooks. If you are a democrat or republican know this….. THEY ALL SUCK! How many of the millionaires donate their checks back to America, check out the benefit plans for politicians versus the average working American. I would love to run for office and be a voice for the real people but big business would make sure I didn’t get anywhere and I would probably get sucked into the greed as well. Your political party sucks!!! It isn’t better than the other side of the isle.
