I don't know if you guys watch Key and Peele, but this was on tonight and I felt like it was pretty much spot on. What with SoP's affinity for names, I had to share.
Don't know who his sources are, but seems like Carmody could get fired in the offseason. Gottlieb's saying a lot of the same things that anti-Carmody people have been for awhile. Good tactician, less than stellar recruiter. To be clear, I think the guy's done a great job getting the program to the brink of respectability. 11 years ago, that was unfathomable. But right now, this team is too talented for a CBI berth to be in their imminent future.
Piece I did on Juice Thompson for SportsNight. Hard to reflect on his amazing career in under two minutes, but I did the best I could. You guys are actually getting a sneak peak; this doesn't go on Evanston public cable (!) until Thursday at 10 pm.
Just a couple of questions with Carmody about his contract extension. Really just showcases how boring sports journalism can be and how bad of a reporter I am. But it's just 45 seconds so take a look.
The news is that Pat Fitzgerald will host "The Pat Fitzgerald Show" on Comcast Sportsnet Tuesdays at 11 p.m. Knowing how intense he is, I imagine Fitz's on-screen persona will be similar to that of Morbo from Futurama.
