Calipari on Skal’s eligibility: “We’ll see”

Screen Shot 2015-10-21 at 2.32.40 PM

As expected, John Calipari was asked about Skal Labissiere’s eligibility today at SEC Tipoff. Cal repeated the line he’s been using for weeks about the situation, referring to past players who have gone through the same process, but for once, there wasn’t total certainty in his voice. Here’s what he told Andy Katz:

“The thing with this, Andy, there are probably 50-60 kids that went through this. There are probably 15 still going through it. Last year, at this time, five of our kids hadn’t been cleared yet. So, we’re all feeling good, he’s feeling good, and we’re going to play that first game and we’ll see.”

Hopefully that “we’ll see” is just fatigue over being asked the same question over and over and not a tell of something more.

    “We’ll see” means he doesn’t know what’s going to happen And the fatigue you describe is probably the strain of thinking the NCAA may again screw over UK. Not sounding as confident as a couple of weeks ago

    There’s no point in trying to dissect wording or inflections. When you start looking for things that aren’t really there, you usually end up finding them. Just be patient.

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. There’s more to this than a lot of people want to think. I don’t think it’s looking good. But, that’s just me.

      You’re right, it is just you. Unless you know details that the rest of us don’t…

    “We’ll see” seems like is referring to the collective of people who keep asking this question.

    Nothing Cal says is flippant. Everything is calculated. That said, I have no idea what he intended that to mean.

    This was just click fodder. Cal said, “he feels good…we feel good” then he said, “we’ll see.” How did you somehow focus in on the ‘we’ll see’ part. Moving on…
