If you don’t particularly care for Pat Forde you might not appreciate this, but if can get past the fact that this is Pat Forde’s writing and thoughts, well, some of his minutes for this week are pretty funny and while he does delve into the world of college hoops as a whole in the linked article, what really caught my eye in this piece originally was that in some capacity, UK is mentioned in 5 of his top 40 minutes of the week.
In one portion of the article Forde replaces certain Olympic events with an appropriately relating person or team from around college hoops. For example, he compares Kansas basketball players with hockey players (I thought that one was funny), puts our own John Wall in as a speed skater (that one is pretty obvious), and also suggests that "North Carolina coach Roy Williams (14) would feel right at home in the kiss-and-cry area adjacent to the figure-skating rink." Now tell me, is that not funny, and so true?
And, of course, there is more.
