Coach Cal On Madness Campout and UK Being The Only Team In The State

KSTV’s basketball season preview, “March To A Championship”, will air tonight at 8pm on cn|2. We’ll have interviews with all of the players and head coach John Calipari. To get you ready, here’s a video that we shot at last week’s madness campout with Coach Cal, where he applauded the fans for turning out and took a little jab at that one team coached by Rick Pitino. Check it out.

    Hey Cal, we get it. You dominate UofL in every aspect. You won the State Championship. Congrats, you beat Rick Pitino, who has had a mediocre career at a mediocre school. Concentrate on your team and win something worth bragging about. This will be your 3rd straight year with 5+ NBA players and you have underachieved the past two. If you don’t hang #8 in 2012, you better have a good excuse.

    You can rag on Rick all you want, but the rest of the country will be laughing at your coaching skills if you get knocked out of the tournament and 6 more kids leave for the NBA after being on campus for only 4 months.

    Take that $hit somewhere else!!! Last year’s team was very much OVER-achievers!!! Going to the FinalFour is not underachieving. Coach Cal is the man. Nobody is laughing at him. We’re just laughing at you.

    4 – There is no State Championship in college basketball.

    -Calipari made it to the Final Four last season with a team nobody expected him to take there while going through the overall #1 seed and best #2 seed, with a very young team. I’d say that is worth bragging about, funny how literally everybody forgets about the great coaching job he did just 6 months ago.

    -This will NOT be the 3rd straight year that he has “5+” NBA players. He had 5 in his first year (a team in which he had to put together in just a couple months). Last season we had 3 NBA players. Two of which nobody expected to get to the NBA (but did thanks to Calipari’s coaching), and went in the second round.

    -Calipari did not “underachieve” last year. In fact, he far OVERachieved. Amazing, you’d think UK was the favorite to win it all going into March. Nobody expected UK to get past the Sweet 16. Instead, Calipari upset Ohio State and North Carolina and made it into a Final Four UK had no business being in. Amazing how people completely ignore this.

    -Players are not on campus for 4 months. Not even sure how you could have come up with something so ridiculous and absurd. They are on campus from June till May. That is 11 months. 11. Not 4. 11.

    -If what Calipari did with last seasons team, and the development of Harrelson and Liggins is not complete proof that Calipari is indeed a great, not good, coach, then nothing will be. Media types from all over raved about his coaching job last season. But you can just go right ahead and ignore all that, i guess it doesn’t matter anymore.

    7. You are wrong about only having 3 NBA players last year. Only 3 were drafted. Jones and Lamb could have easily gone to the draft.
    If you want to call last years team over-achievers to help Cal’s case, that is fine. But the fact is he had 5 players with NBA talent. Looking back, as yourself how that team cannot be coached well enough to beat UCONN, Butler and VCU?
    “Not even sure how you could have come up with something so ridiculous and absurd.” I thought everything on this site was supposed to be brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible? Is that not the rule for the comment section as well?
    You can call me an idiot all you want… I am sure you are the same guys dogging Joker and the football team for not meeting your expectations. Carry on.

    =12==do you also believe that michigan’s “fab 5” were underacheivers?

    #4 We made the Final Four in only Cal’s second year playing with a team of half freshman and half role players. His first year we didn’t have any real shooters so we fell short. Not sure what else you can expect the guy to do in two years after several years of being a dumpster fire from the previous two coaches.

    #11 It was less than what Samaki Walker got and when i say less i mean 0.

    It’s “take a look,” Matt. “Take a listen” makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. “Have a listen”? Maybe, but not in the context of a TV show.
