As a sign of the dedication I have to the Big Blue Nation, I watched the “O’Reilly Factor” tonight (I would rather watch the “Forde/Thamel Factor”) to see his interview with John Calipari about his new book. Most of the interview was of the “how do you handle these disrespectful kids who like rap and hip hop” variety (although I was a fan of Bill’s tie), but Calipari did have one line that stuck out to me. The coach said, “If I walk in a home and a kid disrespects a woman, his mother or grandmother, then I am out…I wont recruit them.”
Strong words from Calipari and ones that I am sure we all agree with. If you want to be recruited by Calipari, be kind to your mothers and grandmothers kids…a good life lesson from John Calipari.
