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. Heâ€™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 didnâ€™t have that last year, but heâ€™s got it this year. I expect their team to be real good this year.”
We’re loving it.
