It seems like there is never a dull today when it comes to Kentucky basketball, but CBSSports.com’s Jeff Goodman really infuriated many UK fans Thursday during a radio interview in Louisville with Rick Bozich and Eric Crawford when he suggested that UK coach John Calipari tried to get him fired earlier in his career.
This is a big-time accusation, and one Goodman certainly has to totally believe to have discussed with Bozich and Crawford, two respected journalists. Maybe other national media members have felt that way at times, but if one has ever openly said it quite that way I don’t remember it.
Kentucky fans obviously lashed out at Goodman, especially on Twitter.
He tried to post various Tweets to calm the storm:
— I have said it’s more difficult to be objective when someone tries to get you fired, but i have found way to do so regardless
— I am not a huge fan of him on personal level, but think he is one hell of a coach – and has done phenomenal job at UK.
— I never said I was biased against Calipari. Again, we don’t have personal relationship, but i have respect for him as coach.
So what do you think. Can Goodman be unbiased when it comes to Kentucky and Calipari? Should he stop writing UK/Calipari stories? Or is there nothing wrong with his comments about Calipari?
