The one person we haven't heard anything from since this whole Louisville basketball scandal first broke back in October has been the man who at least appears to be at the center of it all: Andre McGee.
It looks like that's about to change on Sunday morning:
Lots of questions here. Is he actually going to answer anything? Where is this taking place? Did John Barr just jump in the backseat of his car with a camera?
I suppose we'll have answers in a few days.
Update: John Barr seems to be every bit as weird in real life as he appears to be on camera.
Andre McGee did not talk to @espn, I've heard. They repeatedly asked him to comment after getting in his Uber. McGee asked them to leave— Jason Riley (@JasonRileyWDRB) March 11, 2016
It was a 3-person ESPN crew w/ reporter John Barr.They got into the Uber driven by McGee and pulled out camera. Told him this was his chance— Jason Riley (@JasonRileyWDRB) March 11, 2016
McGee said he didn't want to talk. Reporter said that was a bad idea. McGee asked them to get out. Far as I can tell, that is the interview— Jason Riley (@JasonRileyWDRB) March 11, 2016
The fact that ESPN is teasing something that evidently produces nothing substantial, and the fact that the program is airing at a time (10 a.m. on Selection Sunday) where it is certain to be forgotten just a few hours later has me more and more convinced that nothing which airs in this report is going to change Louisville's status significantly.
