University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Calipari with a great quote from the Barnstable Brown party

Coach Cal doesn’t always do interviews in front of flashing lights with Usher blasting in the background, but when he does, he looks directly into the camera and gives a great quote about his ‘players first’ philosophy.

“You know, they always say this: You have about as much of a chance to get drafted as getting hit by lightning… unless you go to Kentucky.”

Boom.

    Hey 3, I am not sure of the exact quote (I’m sure someone on here is) but he has already said something along the lines of unfinished business and catching UCLA.

    Let’s go get ’em!!!

    I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a John Calipari interview where he smiles as much as he did in this one. It’s obvious he’s truly enjoyed everything these kids have done for him and the state. Well done, Matt.

    I’m here to tell you,now that Coach Cal has the monkey off his back, and you can tell it by how loose he is now and how much he is smiling every time you see him, he will be an even better coach in the future.Watch out UCLA were coming for you.
