Eye on College Basketball Podcast: Setting up the Final Four from Dallas
Gary Parrish, Matt Norlander and Jeff Borzello are at the Final Four to discuss a lot of basketball and a little Hooters, and they do it all while sitting in the same hotel room.
DALLAS -- I sat down Thursday (in person, at our hotel) with Matt Norlander and Jeff Borzello to discuss the Final Four and ... Hooters. Among the topics discussed:
- What did Norlander and Borzello get into Wednesday night upon arriving in Dallas? Hooters, naturally. (Meantime, I was working and getting a good night of sleep, like a responsible adult uninterested in staring at young women in orange shorts.)
- OK, we're here in Dallas. But now what? Haven't we talked about this Final Four enough already? Bring on the games, for crying out loud.
- So what to make of John Calipari's tweak with this Kentucky team? (This conversation led to a story about Calipari's ability to instantly change what people are talking about, one rooted in a story I did on Chris Massie many years ago when Calipari was initially struggling as the coach at Memphis.)
- Late Monday night, if we could draw it up, what would make for the best story from the national championship game at AT&T Stadium?
Beyond all that, Norlander and Borzello were compelled to discuss my podcast attire. Sorry, but I didn't realize we needed to dress up for these things.
