screen-shot-2016-10-13-at-10-16-27-pm On this week's episode of The OTT, I interview ESPN's Doris Burke, who called UK's open practice on ESPNU on Sunday. Doris has been covering basketball for over 25 years and is one of the best in the business (even if she mispronounces Calipari's name, which she totally admits to on the podcast). She's a big role model of mine, so talking to her about UK Basketball really was a treat. Highlights include... --- Her thoughts on this team and why she believes Kentucky fans are the best in the country --- Whether or not she believes Coach K is copying Calipari's moves --- Who Kentucky's leading scorer will be (Spoiler: we agreed) --- The astounding success of Calipari's players in the NBA --- What it like to break barriers for women in sports media and her advice to women trying to move up in the industry After wrapping things up with Doris, I checked in on Fake Barney in North Carolina to chat about his recent trip to Lexington, including a haphazard list of the top things to do while in the Bluegrass.
