Cats ready to grind it out

In a head coaching career that has spanned over 20 years, John Calipari’s teams have mostly been known for their flash and their aggressiveness.  The best squads had an imposing big man in the middle, but liked to run and push the pace.  Without DeMarcus Cousins, Patrick Patterson or Daniel Orton, this season’s team looked like one that was going to play fast, as well.  After five conference games,though, Coach Cal thinks he might have been wrong.

“We’re getting better,” UK coach John Calipari said, “but we may be a little different team than I think. We might be an execution team that has to grind it a little bit more than I would like, but if that’s how we have to play, then that’s how we play. I think back on what we did in the Alabama game (a 68-66 loss in Tuscaloosa), and we needed to play more like this.”

Right or wrong, we need to see this quote for the doom it will surely bring.  Jimmy Dykes + “grind” = torture in the next broadcast.

    No, no, no…only 2 points can be more than 2 points and you must be in Columbia, SC for that to occur.

    I think I would rather drink a cup of gasoline that listen to Jimmy Dykes call a game! Everything has to be so serious with him. It could be a wide open layup, and he would be talking about the toughness or grit that a kid has to go up and make a shot like that in the environment that he is playing in. I feel like the people in movie “Airplane” who are trying to hurt themselves, rather have to listen to the guy tell his story.
