It was an interesting end of the day today as former Courier-Journal writer Pat Forde threw around some words on Outside the Lines this afternoon that might be leaving a few people with a sour taste in their mouth. Forde used words like “probation” and “academic risks” and “black marks” when referring to our beloved new coach. You can get a look at it for yourself below.
But, don’t worry. You’re not the only one that got a little tweaked about what Forde said. Coach even had something to say about it. Here is what he said to his tweoples:
UKCoachCalipari What’s w/ this Pat Ford guy? Anybody else think this is personal. Probably trying to sell more books or tryin to shift stuff to Lexington…
Whoa, slow down there, Coach. Why do you think it’s personal? It’s not like Forde promised a ground-breaking Sypher piece a few weeks ago and gave the world fluff. Oh, wait, he did. Well, what do you mean selling books? It’s not like Forde has a fairly new book that he co-authored with Rick Pitino. Oh, wait, he does?
Hmmm. Maybe Calipari is on to something here.
