As usual, South Carolina’s Frank Martin brought the jokes to SEC Media Days, quipping that John Calipari is bringing in more McDonald’s All-Americans than the fast food giant puts out cheeseburgers:
“McDonald’s used to put up sign ‘2 billion served.’ Cal is going to have to put up ‘200 billion McDonald’s All-Americans served.’ …I have an unbelievable amount of respect for him. He’s a relentless recruiter and coaches as well as anyone else in the country. To take on that challenge of coaching guys for one year is as hard as it gets. A couple years ago when they won the championship, they had some phenomenal young players, but the guys that came through down the stretch were his upperclassmen. He didn’t have that last year, but he’s got it this year. I expect their team to be real good this year.”
We’re loving it.
