John Kilgo thinks Carolina Huddle posters are idiots

229 posts in this topic

He's an old fuddy duddy. The panthers could be playing in the super bowl tomorrow and he'd rather talk about southern conference women's volleyball.

As long as he realizes that local sports talk radio is a step below the huddle content-wise, I'm more than happy being called an idiot.

Those Furman Paladins and Western Carolina Catamounts have really been going at it on the court. I didn't know any other sport existed in North Carolina because I was so caught up in the quality action.

Kilgo is a giant, unapologetic UNC homer that can't tell a football from his ass. By far the worst personality that WFNZ puts on the air.

agree 100%. I can't turn the radio off fast enough when I hear his voice.

Who is John Kilgo?

I posted an answer in some detail on a thread elsewhere. First, Kilgo is a, if not the, living patriarch of Charlotte media who is still actively working. Secondly, he probably knows more about sports, and more sports people, than any dozen Huddlers put together, with a possible anonymous exception or two. Finally, if he did say that, he isn't far from being right, even if not 100% correct.

He's earned the right to voice an educated, if somewhat curmudgeony, opinion.

PS - No, I am not Kilgo, but I did work with him in his prime years, as did quite a few long time Charlotte media types, more than a few of whom got their start thanks to John.

PPS - He does talk basketball primarily because that's his thing. For example, he wrote Dean Smith's biography. He called the UNCC games back in the late 70's when they went to the NIT and Final Four.

Agree.

And Jimmy's dance show was a hit too.

He tells it like it is. He just sounds angry when he's doing it.

Agreed. He does have a lot of piss and vinegar in him but the truth is still the truth angry or not.

pretty shocking that the internet, the most easily-accessible information stream and medium for dialogue in the history of the world, would have its share of nincompoops when discussing football in the south

it seems this john kilgo is extraordinarily perceptive
