Watch the ladies do their thing against Ole Miss tomorrow at 7 p.m. in Memorial Coliseum. MKG will be in the front row taking notes.
We now interrupt your National Signing Day for a little basketball. KSR favorite Larry Vaught dug up this gem of a quote from Cal after last night’s blowout of Tennessee, in which he said that the fun, free and loose Cats we’ve seen in the past few games may have an unexpected inspiration: the women’s team.
Cal on Coach Mitchell:
“I’ll stop in the office, he’ll stop in my office. I’ll stop in his practice, he’ll stop in my practice. He has done such a fabulous (job). He’s selling out Memorial (Coliseum). We played Alabama, sellout. Valerie Still was back. And they’re really good, like they’re really good. They’re fun to watch.
My players love watching them play. Coach, why don’t we play a little like them, let us go a little bit. So it’s been a unique experience in that there are other programs that have had teams like this, but I just don’t know if they’ve gotten along like our two teams have.”
The camaraderie and support between the men’s and women’s teams is wonderful, and, considering Cal’s quote above, may even prove useful on the court. With the men’s team resting comfortably at #1 and the ladies at #5 (their highest ranking in school history), are two National Championships too much to dream for?
