John Calipari’s appearance on ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike yielded little news (“We’re getting better,” “players need to lose themselves in the team,” etc.), but Cal did take the opportunity to remind listeners that he doesn’t like the one-and-done rule. When asked how he thinks the UK fan base has responded to this season’s so-called “letdown,” Cal said that the fans have been “fabulous” and have accepted the difficult task of growing to love players and then having to say goodbye to them so quickly. If Cal had his way, he said college basketball would move to the two-year rule:
“I’m one of the few coaches right now who will say let’s go to two years. It would be good for college players, good for the pros, good for everyone involved. I’m saying let’s go to two years.”
I don’t even want to dream of how awesome that would be.
