Only at Kentucky would a 7-3 start with a team of freshmen be viewed as troublesome. Yet, after last year’s march to number eight and this squad’s tumble out of the top 25, everyone seems to have some advice for Cal, including former UofL coach Denny Crum:
“If I could give him some good advice, it’d be ‘patience. They’re all young kids. They all don’t automatically mesh like last year’s team did.”
“What happened last year is not going to happen very often,” Crum said. “I don’t care who your freshmen are.”
I’m not worried about Cal, but maybe Crum’s words of wisdom would be better suited for the fans. We’ve never really done well with that whole “patience” thing.
