Calipari says the SEC should strive to have 7 teams in the tournament in two years


John Calipari took a break from rehabbing at the beach to attend the SEC Annual Meetings in Destin, and today, told reporters that the SEC’s goal should be to get at least half of their teams in the NCAA Tournament in two years. …Does it count if the league gets three in one year and four the next? Does Kentucky’s second string count? No? Dang.

Cal even cracked a few jokes, telling reporters he told Bruce Pearl to “keep your shirt on” at Auburn. LOL. Both he and Pearl said they want the SEC to be a “cool” and “fun” league to play in to attract better recruits, and Cal added that the SEC Network should show that.

Possible solutions:

  • Have Willie Cauley-Stein redesign every team’s uniforms
  • Shirts vs. Skins Saturday (Not you, Bruce. Yes you, Anthony Grant)
  • Black light basketball
  • Mascot wars at halftime
  • Extra free throws for the other team every time Kevin Stallings whines
  • When ejected from a game, players and coaches must swim in a shark tank for one minute

Your turn.

    If Bruce Pearl isn’t cool I don’t know what is.

    Seven Teams?
    – Kentucky
    – Florida
    – Auburn
    – Tennessee
    – Alabama
    – Texas A&M
    – Missouri

    Could happen I guess.

      Could also throw LSU in there. And Arkansas if they move the SEC tourney to Barnhill.

    Another possible solution…Whenever a player misses a free throw, Russdiculous takes the first shot on the next one and one.
    That’s kind of creeping me, Dingbat.

    Calipari should be more concerned about winning SEC road games than how many teams get in the tourney.

    Give every player theme music, and have a heavyset man carrying a massive 1980s boombox follow the player around all day blasting the music. If anyone has seen the old movie “I’m Gonna Get You Sucka,” I’m advocating something like Bernie Casey’s posse. Extra points if you replace the guy with a boombox with a string ensemble.

    have students put their names in a box and at halftime draw out ten names to play 5 on 5 by 1s and 2s to 10. Winning team gets to take turns wheelbarrowing Aaron Harrison’s sack around campus to and fro class the following week.

    That is the worst post I have ever read on KSR

    (Insert derogatory comment about post)
    [change name to act like I’m someone else]
    (Insert same derogatory comment and/or agree with my previous comment)

    Seriously, though. We should do like Semi-Pro and have Matt wrestle a bear. We could also have a Megabowl and have Kroger give away a giant check that says $10,000.
