Seth Greenberg and his “unwarranted arrogance” comments have been a hot topic this week — too hot, probably — but they’re back in the news once more after John Calipari added his two cents on Friday.

Calipari said Greenberg gave him a heads up before going on SportsCenter and being so critical of the Cats. Greenberg left Cal a warning message after the South Carolina game, to which Cal responded, “Be easy. These kids are young.”


Seth Greenberg explains “unwarranted arrogance” comments

Cal claims he didn’t read, hear or see what Greenberg actually said, “but I heard about it and I just smiled.”

He also said Greenberg is not the type to have an agenda or hurt the program, and “it needed to be addressed.”

“If you watched us, you probably would’ve said the same thing.”

    The fact that he gave Cal a heads up means he wasn’t just talking on the fly in a quick segment, he planned to say those things. It also means he was specifically talking about Kentucky. I don’t really think anything he said was that terrible, but it seems he wasn’t being honest when he talked to Matt about it this week.

      Exactly. He also tried to back-track a bit on KSR the next day.

      How many on ESPN “talk on the fly”? They have a subject and they prepare themselves to discuss it. I wasn’t offended by what he said. Too many on here worry about what the talking heads say on ESPN. Who cares???

    As a Wildcat fan, I hate to to admit it but he was “brutally right”!

    Drew you’re normally my man but on this one I gotta call you out. For the record…the “unwarranted arrogance” comment originated with Cal. Cal made that comment about his own players in the South Carolina post game press conference. Seth Greenburg was using Cal’s own words about his team in his rant regarding Kentucky and one and dones. Sooo….let’s get it straight. If you’re gonna make Greenburg’s comments the focus of your website for 3 days then let’s get the fact straight. Especially in light of the fact that everything he said was 100% correct. With all that said “I still like my team”…especially now that J Vandy is a part of it!
