Cal’s First Workout with Kentucky Didn’t Go Well

Shortly after John Calipari was hired to be the next head coach at the University of Kentucky, he held a workout with his team to see what he was inheriting from Billy Gillispie.  Once it was over, he knew he had work to do.

I literally went into the back room, had my hands in my face and I said, ‘What did I do?’  Because my team at Memphis was so much better than the team I was inheriting.”

Luckily, things changed quickly.  “But then we got John, then we got Eric and DeMarcus,” and along with the Darius Miller, Patrick Patterson and DeAndre Liggins, they had a team with NBA talent.  Calipari told Jon Rothstein there was plenty of early anxiety after mass exodus’ each year, but the success has never been in short supply.

    Exoduses. The plural of exodus is exoduses.

      Or is the exodus just really owning that anxiety… who knows…

    There are few things that bother me more than an apostrophe being used to create a plural form of a word.

      Sometimes it’s okay, like when you are pluralizing a word that doesn’t really have a plural form, like “I got straight A’s on my report card.”
