Cal got on a roll during his appearance on “First Take,” going after those who incorrectly assume that players that come through the program only use it as a stepping stone to the NBA. As he often does, Cal pointed out that UK has one of the highest APRs in the country, a 3.0 grade point average, graduated 10 players during his time, and two more have returned to work towards their degree:
“Kids are leaving early, you know why they all finish? Because they’re loyal to us and the program and me because they knew I had their back. Now, they’ve gotta finish. Do your work. All this stuff, where ‘kids don’t wanna go to school,’ stop. It’s a bunch of baloney from bitter old men who don’t understand this has changed.”
Bobby Knight, anyone?
