A Coach Cal “Blast from the Past”

Coach Cal provided a little “blast from the past” on his website this morning, sharing a video sent to him by a former player on his JV Kansas basketball team. The video footage shows a VERY young John Calipari, who showed off a similar charisma and love for coaching that we still see today. Cal also says that the one thing that hasn’t changed: “I will still coach at 11 o’clock at night or 7 in the morning. I love coaching young men and seeing their dreams come true.”

    Didn’t Cal say that he wanted to start a JV team here? What happened to that? I would love to see Polson light it up in some JV action.
