Everyone be nice to Kevin Stallings today. He’s butt-hurt.
The Vanderbilt coach is upset about his team’s two-game stretch where they play at Alabama on Thursday night and then return home to host Mississippi State on Saturday night. I can kind of see why he’d be a little frustrated with that scheduling; it’s not the ideal setup for two games in three days. But Kevin Stallings isn’t just worried about his own team’s fatigue from traveling and one day to prepare for the Bulldogs, he’s mad that Kentucky doesn’t have a similar scheduling issue all season.
The league’s second-longest tenured coach wants to know why Kentucky will not play a Thursday-Saturday combo for the second consecutive season. And it’s not just that. The Wildcats have Saturday games with four SEC opponents that are coming off Thursday night games — the most of any team in the league.
“Go figure that one out for me, would you?” Stallings said. “We all agreed to do it, so if you have one, like we have one, I’m not going to complain. To not have any and to be able to play four teams that have to do it to play you … that’s not right.”
Stallings just wants everything to be fair. That’s cute.
Worry about your own team.
