Throughout the season, Coach Cal has said several times that he hopes to have a consistent seven-man rotation. As of now, he feels like he has it to a certain degree, provided that Eloy Vargas can develop into a more consistent player. But, after today’s game, Calipari, perhaps still high on offensive outburst by a freshman from Nicholasville, hinted at a possibility of an eight-man rotation. An eight-man rotation that could feature Jarrod “Buckets” Polson.
I would love for us to get that eighth man, whether it’s Stacey or whether it’s Jon. I’m even ready to try to go with Jarrod a little bit. Maybe he’s the one that will go in there and fight at the guard position and we’ll play him some. But it’s safer if you have eight.
Yes, folks. The man with the dazzling layup at the end of the game and the eyes that melt the hearts of teenagers across the state might just be ready to step into a new role. And, if he does, you can bet that I’ll be ready for it.
