Q: What did Coach Cal give Drake as a graduation present?


A: A jersey and a swag bag.


All I got for high school graduation was a copy of Dr. Seuss’s “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” Not. Fair.

    Who gives a shat!?! Is this really UK related?

    Congrats to the kid for graduating high school at 26 though…

    You old farts are stupid. You find fault with every non-traditional thing Cal does. He’s plugged in. That’s how you get recruits.

    On the surface a 26 year old graduating is not impressive but consider the fact that he was rich when he was 17 and never actually had a reason to go back.

    Its admirable that he felt compelled to go back and a good example.

    Maybe you want to clown all of our former players for not getting their college degrees “on time”

    Only Coach Cal could have drake looking at that bag like a 10 year old on Christmas morning. Cal is a beast!

    No. 7, who are you calling an old fart? I am probably much older than you, but I am certainly proud for Drake getting his GED. He did not have to, and he would still be richer than both of us put together. But, he chose to do what was right – go back to school. Good for him. And, you need to grow up and quit being so judgmental of all.

    I don’t care who it is…if you put forth the effort (especially when you don’t have to) to graduate, congratulations. Would love to see him try to graduate from UK now.

    Congratulations to Drake!
    Hearing him talk about how genuinely happy he is about his high school diploma is refreshing.
    A lot of guys in his position would try to act too ‘cool’ for school?
    Even better….he is now a ‘UK guy’!

    Maybe with that new education – he’ll learn that he shouldn’t use the N-word, learn to be more respectful of women in his lyrics, cut out all the profanity and drug references and try to act a bit more like a serious, responsible artist.

    Nah. Who am I kidding. He knows what makes money – screw standards.

    And Cal – you think he’d be a bit more cautious in who represents UK? Nope – he know what makes UK hip to the recruits. Screw standards.

    Doubt it was cash or prepaid debit cards like most of uk’s recruits and handlers get.

    Old_school, I must admit…. You are truly the most dedicated troll I’ve ever seen on the Internet. That’s a hell of an achievement. Seriously. Props. Some of these other posters may get upset with you, but I truly respect what you are doing. It is an absolute art form. I already know you’ll deny this to the death of you, and give plenty of reasons why you’re a true UK fan who just wants the best for the university, but just take this as solace that someone out here in the vast expanse that is the Internet, someone truly respects your effort, passion, and dedication to trolling. You, sir, are a gentleman and a scholar. I salute you.

    Christ, most of the trolls on KSR these days need to go back to U of L and get finish out their trolling degrees. You guys are sh*t at this.

    17. Nice post and I agree with your assessment of the “King of Trolls.” He was very obviously in the “gifted and talented” trolling classes.

    Don’t like his music I’m more of a pearl jam man myself. That said Definatly respect his choice to get his diploma. If it was to inspire one kid to finish out high school would be well worth the fan fair. Bottom line he has helped UK so good for him. 14-18 year olds are real impressionable so this is Definatly a positive. We might not all be fans of Drakes music but BBN is a fan of the man!

    The giving of this “gift” by Coach Cal certainly does not bode well for UK. Once again, with Cal it is all about him. Enticing a music star ( benefits not afforded the general student body) to earn his degree looks highly suspicious at best.

    One can only envision that how this now “indebted” star will be used to perhaps illegally give UK an edge in future recruiting…..Coach Cal certainly walks on the edge…All UK fans must continue to take a deep breath…waiting for a potential hammer to fall.

    Graduating HIGH SCHOOL at 26 deserves a reward????????
    The language Drake uses is low class gutteral that exposes our youth to gangster crap rap.
    Good for Drake,now enter a University and learn to speak proper english.
