Calipari not confident about UK’s chances of winning the SEC regular season title

To win the SEC regular season and earn the #1-seed in the SEC Tournament, all Kentucky has to do is win out (or hope Texas A&M loses). That means winning on the road at Vandy and at Florida and then beating LSU — a team Kentucky lost to by 18 points in January — at home. Easy, right?

In his press conference this afternoon, John Calipari didn’t sound confident about his team’s chances of winning their 47th regular season conference title. 

“It’s going to be hard for us to do because of schedules, when you look at the schedules. But we’re going to play the games, I’m more concerned about us getting better. We’ve got two tough road games and a team that beat our brains in down there. We could lose all three.

But if we’re playing at a high level and doing what we’re supposed to, we’ll be going into the tournament and we’ll be fine and we’ll build in the SEC Tournament. You can’t really tell. Right now, it doesn’t look promising, but we’ll see.”

If you ask me, tomorrow’s the toughest of the three games left, and if the Cats can get out of Nashville unscathed, they’ll be fine.

If you ask me, I also think Calipari’s bluffing.

    Just Cal being Cal: trying to lower expectations; set us up to look like heroes; posturing for a better late SEC schedule next year; etc.
