Outspoken Buffalo coach Nate Oats has not restrained his comments since his team took down Arizona. Following the first round win, he made this remark about John Calipari:
“Calipari’s been whining about no experience, young, young, young, we don’t have that problem.”
When a reporter read that quote to Calipari during today’s press conference, he cut off the reporter before he could finish talking.
“Who said that?”
After the quip, Calipari cooled down and responded to the opposing head coach.
“I don’t know if it’s whining or I’m telling the truth. I’m not whining about it. I got a pretty good team, but I am telling the truth. He shouldn’t tell the truth. He should not even say it. Introduce them and don’t give their year. That’s fine. At the end of the day we gotta play basketball game. Everybody’s gotta get in the ring and play.”
After Oats’ remark, Coach Cal is ready to get in the ring and fight for a victory.
