Calipari opens up about the empty nest, says he and Ellen will have to get matching sweaters

During his second interview with John Calipari during the Fantasy Camp, ESPN’s Seth Greenberg asked him about the team’s performance in the Bahamas and where they go from here. Cal said he’s taking a few days off (hence the sunbathing we saw yesterday) and that he’s given his team three tasks while he’s gone: 1) take conditioning and training to another level, 2) work on your skills, and 3) play pick-up games.

Cal also talked a little bit about his work with charity and the frantic schedule that comes with being UK’s head coach. As you know, his son Brad is headed up north to prep school, and Cal admitted that he’s having a little trouble adjusting to the empty nest. “For the last two months, I’ve been in a dead sprint, so last night I sit in the chair and I look at my house and it’s empty and I’m thinking this is how it’s going to be and I get emotional. I haven’t had time to think of my son, my last child, leaving the house. My wife did tell me we’re going to be wearing matching sweaters and she’s going on recruiting trips and road games, so I think we’ll get a lot closer now,” Cal quipped.

Is this the next Calipari Christmas card?

    This is how obsessed KSR is with Calipari. What’s new? Coverage of Cal taking a crap?

      No it’s pistachio with little nuts. I also love that Mike is so frustrated he gives KSR 3 more clicks (clicks = money) to post a comment complaining about KSR.

      I had no shoes and I complained. Until I met a man who had no feet.

      I guess we can go back to making fun of UofL’s coaches, right Mike? I mean, that’s easy…

    I look forward to seeing coach’s wife at the games. I think she would be great on in home visits and now she will be able to keep up with the Tupperware he continues to lose. I too have gone through the empty nest ordeal. Trust me when I say it isn’t too bad in the long run!!!!!!!!! What’s the old saying “happiness is seeing the taillights in the driveway”. Just kidding, enjoy every minute together!

    Best Wishes
