Cal says this team is “farther along than any team I’ve had in a while”


John Calipari was a happy guy today. He let Kenny Payne take over head coaching duties while he and Tony Barbee watched from the stands, and when the game turned into a blowout in the second half, he even manned the ESPNU cameras.

Cal obviously liked what he saw, posting on social media that he is proud of his guys, who are “farther along than any team I’ve had in a while,” a quote that will give you some goosebumps. Cal also joked that Kenny Payne “did a better job than I would have,” and hinted that he may try letting him coach in his place during the regular season.

Hey, as long as the result is the same, why not?

    This team is going to make a mockery of college basketball and I love it.

    I called Time Warner Cable. In the Louisville area, I will get the SEC Network on channels 516 ( Non Hi Def), 517 (Hi Def) and 518 ( Alternative programming). No extra charge from what I’m already paying (and I don’t have any Sports or movie channels). Hope this helps! The CATS were mighty, mighty fine today!

    Cal’s trying to lay the groundwork for Payne to replace him next year so he can go Coach LeBron.

      It’s more likely he’s trying to help Kenny get a head coaching gig.

    Maybe we can platoon the coaching staff along with the rest of the team. We can win the SEC West and East and be SEC Tourney champion and co-champion. Shoot, it’s just August and a long road to March. Don’t burden these kids all over again. I just hope Willie and Trey can come back and enjoy the season when it gets real this fall. You guys have a good time this year and thanks for the memories still on the way.

    I am Iovin’ these games in the Bahamas. What can I say but “awesome”. This is going to truly be a very special team. I know. I know. We’ve said that a few times recently; but there is no other way to express it. #9 will be here before you know it. No pressure, but . . . GO CATS!
