To anyone who watched Bill O’Reilly’s interview with Kentucky coach John Calipari, it was apparent that the FOX television host didn’t have a very high opinion of college basketball players. Today, Coach Cal told reporters that O’Reilly admitted to him before the segment that he didn’t know much about college basketball. But get this – Cal said he got O’Reilly to agree to attend a game in Lexington. Cal also said he was “scared to death” of what O’Reilly would ask him.
Kentucky has always had high-profile fans in the stands for its home games, but this might be a new level. As for the “police around him” comment – he may need it after some of the questions he asked Calipari. Let’s hope this happens sooner rather than later.
