For some reason, the people at Campus Insiders are still letting Billy Gillispie do this college basketball commentary thing. In the latest segment, Gillispie compares the coaching styles of Roy Williams and John Calipari. Gillispie says Williams “sticks to the system,” recruiting players who will fit his style, while Cal “tweaks his system” based on the players he gets each year. Gillispie’s keys to beating the Cats?
— Get back in transition
— Force shots from the perimeter
Tell Krebs to get you a refill
— Attack their depth
When asked which team he’d rather face this season (a situation only possible in hypothetical land), Gillispie said the Cats because they’ve got a brand new team and are missing the veteran leadership they’ve had in the past. That is actually all true, but hardly earth-shattering analysis.
And yes, that is the same Brian McFayden that was on MTV back in the day. I’m sure he’s asking himself what he’s doing there just as much as you are.
