UK Fans of the Day Want Notes From Coach Cal’s Press Conference and Today’s Podcast

Good afternoon, friends, are you excited to go home for Thanksgiving?  I just landed in Madisonville, KY and I can already feel the holiday cheer.  I hope all of you have safe travels over the next few days as you make your way to home to be with your la familias.  And try not to eat too much.  You have a very sexy physique going on there and we don’t want you messing it all up.

Meanwhile in Lexington, John Calipari held his pre-Morehead State press conference this afternoon to bring everyone up to speed on things.  Have some notes…

—  I guess the biggest question around the team these days is the status of the starting point guard, Ryan Harrow.  Calipari said Harrow will practice today and then they’ll decide when to work him back into the lineup after seeing how he holds up.  Cal called Harrow the low man on the totem pole right now and said he’ll have to earn his spot back.  “I want to see him in a practice setting and then figure out what we’re going to do.”

—  It didn’t take long for Calipari to address Sean Woods’ comments from yesterday.  He said, “Our kids were hugging volunteers, so I don’t know where he got that. Maybe somebody didn’t know him or something.”  He added, “Knowing Sean, I figure he misspoke.  I’m not taking it personal.”

—  More: “Do you know how much is said about this program? And me personally?  Oh my God…” (Puts devil horns on his head) “You’d think I look like that.”

—  Julius Mays was also asked about Woods’ criticism of the team.  Mays said he heard the comments and doesn’t think Woods has been around the team long enough to judge them.  Mays said he hasn’t seen any “sense of entitlement” from his fellow teammates.

—  A quick note from around the SEC: Mississippi State is terrible.  The Bulldogs trail Marquette by 21 at halftime out in Maui.

—- This magazine cover wins…

—  Matt and I were live from Fan Outfitters this morning for the radio show when we brought on Sean Woods to talk about his comments from yesterday.  Listen to the podcast below to hear the Unforgettable quickly put the story to bed…

    Based on Cal’s and Mays’ comments, it appears even more that Woods was being an ass.

    Letting a decent coach in Stansbury go and bringing in an unknown to a program who brings 5 fans to away games?

    Vaughan Wedeking? Are you sure? Was that the name of the little 5-8 guard, ’cause that’s who jumped in front of Dan Issel for his fifth foul–that little shrimp of a guard. I thought Wedeking was one of their forwards. Let’s see, there was Artis Gilmore, of course, and Rex whats-his-name, and who was the other seven-footer? Maybe Wedeking was that little punk of a guard that cost us the Final Four and a chance at stopping UCLA’s run (which I believe we would have done that year).

    Point is, Matt and Sean Woods and everybody connected to the program ought to have at least some faint knowledge of this history.
