A few weeks back, Jeanine Edwards got the business for asking a dumb question to Kentucky Coach Billy Gillispie, and last night it happened again. Instead of having Edwards work a different game, or interview the opposing coach, ESPN sent the brave reporter back into the ring with him last night, and here was the result. Via College Hoops Journal....
"A priority for you was to take away Nick Calathes' vision. How effective do you think you've been on that front?"- Jeanine Edwards
"You know more about it than I do, obviously.Some of these things I haven't heard of. But (pause) he's controlling ..."- Billy Gillispie
Obviously not as bad as the first one, but Gillispie still seems to have some irrational hate for Edwards. I wonder if he would give Erin Andrews the same treatment? Oh and good job on Edwards' part to stay professional and approach the coach again.
