Rich Eisen Podcast: Arian Foster, Coach Calipari and Michael Wilbon

Subscribe to the Podcast via iTunes

Guests include Houston Texans star RB Arian Foster, University of Kentucky men’s basketball coach John Calipari and “Pardon the Interruption” co-host Michael Wilbon.


First up, Arian Foster joins Rich fresh off a dynamite performance in Week 7 where he totaled 234 total yards and three touchdowns versus the Titans. After missing nearly all of the first three games of the season, Foster seems back in the 2010 form that garnered him the NFL rushing title. Rich and Foster chat about the Texans’ chances this year in the AFC as well as the likelihood of Andre Johnson returning from a hamstring injury in Week 8. As an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee in 2009, Foster sheds some light on a draft day gaffe that may have caused a certain team in the Pacific Northwest not to call his name during the seventh round.

Next up, the podcast shifts gears a bit as Rich welcomes in the tech-savvy coach of the Kentucky Wildcats, John Calipari, who skypes in from his office Lexington, Ky. A native of Pittsburgh, Coach Cal is a huge Steelers fan and shares some of his favorite memories. And what better person to impart his wisdom on proper postgame handshake etiquette then a college basketball coach? Coach Cal brings his “A” game to the podcast and we‘re looking forward to having back on soon.

The podcast rounds out with Michael Wilbon, co-host of the immensely popular “Pardon the Interruption,” which recently celebrated its 10th anniversary. Rich and Michael go around the league and Wilbon has some not-so-flattering comments for the Ravens on their rather lackluster performance on Monday Night Football.

It’s a fun show with three great guests. Next week’s lineup is all booked and ready to go as we welcome in the hilarious Adam Sandler in-studio, Sports Illustrated senior writer Peter King, as well as a legend of the broadcast booth, Jim Brockmire, who makes his triumphant return to the podcast counting down the top plays of October in the NFL.

Enjoy and thanks for downloading.
