CBS Sports’ Matt Norlander has rounded up the best photos from the 2012-2013 season, including the one above of John Calipari, taken by Mark Zerof during the player introductions before the Morehead State/Kentucky game back in November.
There’s no way of knowing how Calipari felt about his team back in November, but the picture does capture the exhaustion, frustration, and isolation that accompanied this group throughout the season. Prior to the season, Calipari often said how difficult it can be to lose your entire team and start over from scratch. In ESPN’s All-Access series, we saw a little bit of the struggles he had doing that, and in the picture above, you can feel the weariness of the moment.
Blue skies ahead, Coach.
