Cal Announces A Wednesday Open Practice/Scrimmage

After the win over Vanderbilt, Calipari hinted at an open practice this week since UK doesn’t have a game. Now, it’s somewhat official.

Kentucky will hold an open practice and/or scrimmage Wednesday at 3:00 in Memorial Coliseum that will be televised on WKYT. Cal said it’s still in the planning phase and he’ll have more details on his website once it’s all figured out. On the SEC teleconference this morning, he said it may just be open to students, but he expects about 8,000 in attendance either way.

“It may only be students if it is 8,000, but if it’s 4,000 students and 4,000 fans that don’t get a chance to see us play, it may be that too.”

We’ll let you know when more details are announced.

    So I can’t wait to download the podcast tonight. Did Digger call back when the show was live? Also, how bad did Matt blast him before he returned the call?

    I’m interested to see how Harrow looks; I think he’s going to be very good next year. Also, I wonder if Cal will split up the teams or go starters vs. everyone else.

    Too bad this isn’t happening while Noel’s visiting. Would be nice to show him the interest in a practice.

    Also, countdown til NCAA tries to make it against the rules to do this?

    This does not bode well for Kentucky. A loss this late in the season would be DEVASTATING to their morale.

    Once again, coach Cal pushes up against the edge of what is permissible by the NCAA. A source in the NCAA offices indicates this activity is highly questionable. One can only wonder how long until UK if forced to vacate even more games…..

    12 & 13 – What do you mean this does not bode well as a loss would be devastating? How does that make any sense?
    Also, what do you mean until UK is forced to vacate EVEN MORE games? Wouldn’t they have to have games vacated first? Go home.

    Cal truly does get it!! Opening to students first goes to show that this IS all about the college experience. For both the players and the studenets. The players are classmates and peers. Where else do you hear about anything like this? No other major coach would have the balz to do that this time of year!

    well there you go. WKYT,it should not just be about the Golden Triangle, so what about the rest of the BBN that cannot get WKYT? You guys know this is a big STATE and some of us in Far Western Ky are Big Fans also. We want to watch too.
