It’s been a blue morning for most of us, including John Calipari. After the UCLA game, Calipari said he needs 24 hours to grieve a loss, and after the Louisville game, he emerged briefly from his mourning to give the BBN an update on his wellbeing.
“You know I grieve for 24 hours after a loss but I wanted everyone to know I’m still alive,” Cal tweeted. “I’ve got another 10 hours to cry in my soup and then we will be back at it. I’ve got a responsibility to every one of these players, to this program, to this university and all of you. I’m going to take this one on.”
“We have a great group of kids who want to do right, who want to be coached. Now I’ve got to do my job. It’s always been a process here because we are always young. We will learn from this and get better.”
Hopefully the Calipari dogs McGruff and Palmer are providing him some comfort. Also, now I want some soup.
