Calipari excited for Kentucky’s first practice of the season

While fans camp out for Big Blue Madness tickets outside the Joe Craft Center, the team is inside doing work. Today is Kentucky’s first practice of season, which has John Calipari so excited he took to Twitter to celebrate.

Walking in to our 1st practice and excited about the possibilities, but more excited to work with a great group of young people. They have a desire to improve themselves & to WIN.

Every day, I look at a sign on my wall in big, bold letters that says, “Coach your team”.

It’s on.

The only way that tweet could have been any better is if Calipari used this GIF:

Last night, Calipari shared his thoughts on the team on UK’s Tent City Live broadcast. Here’s a snippet:

It’s on.

      Also, when UK wins the Title next year, I bet President Pelosi will actually invite the team to the White House.

      Stop bringing politics into a sports thread and stop being part of the problem, you just can’t help yourself. All politicians are paid liars, cheats and thieves, especially on that level.

      It’s funny how if one’s mate cheats or lies they will never be trusted again but a politician lies every time they open their mouth and people believe everything they say, no matter how many times they lie, cheat and steal.

      There is a zero chance he is getting impeached. Let me repeat, ZERO CHANCE.

    I hope he does not use the same coaching clinic that was on display last year vs. Duke and was again on display vs. Auburn in the NCAA tournament with Auburn missing Chula Okeke and also the previous year against Kansas State while they were missing Dean Wade. He has had a nice raise and a new contract so BBN expectations should be met!

      I was wondering what your new handle would be this season BigolSlaterMedic. You’re still an idiot.

      None of them have the cojones to continually use the same name 4ever, just useless, worthless, sad little trolls. Our buddy here is either some fat dude in a basement that gets off on controversy, or he’s 70 and still thinks separate water fountains and barefoot and pregnant women are what this country needs. Either way, he’s of little consequence to us other than being easy to make fun of.

      Righteous1. They have lost many games in the past 50 years. Why don’t you list them all.

      Well put nocode. Maybe if we ignore him he will get tired of talking to himself, although I have a feeling he’s grown accustomed to taking to himself. I mean why would anyone not being held hostage talk to this pathetic troll?

      I tried ignoring them a year or two ago, but it’s not very cathartic. So, what I have been doing is saying my piece and calling their lunacy our, then just ignoring them. It likely bugs them more when you nibble at their bait briefly, then retort their dumb comments, then ignore their replies.

    Let us look at historical dat: Rupp won 1 championship in his last 20 yrs. Joe Hall won 1 championship. Rick Pitino won 1 championship. Tubby Smith won 1 Championship. John Calipari won 1 championship. If you add the 3 that Rupp won prior to 1952 that adds up to 8. We pay 10 million and a lifetime contact, really? Is the UK just stupid, or do they not look at historical data?
