Remember last year, when some crazy fans said that Kentucky would go 40-0? Well Coach Cal remembers, and he asked for all of us to “calm down”. After BBN has been buzzing over all the returning Cats, Calipari took to Twitter to remind us that nothing is guaranteed. He adds that it will take a lot of time, hard work, and being your brother’s keeper to achieve what we all want, number nine! But most importantly, he wants us to enjoy the ride.
We’ve all had time to go crazy over what’s happened. Now, take a deep breath & calm down. We have a lot of work and a lot of blending to do. We will benefit by the guys that stayed, but let’s remember what we said all along: These decisions were made with their best interests at heart. This was about doing what was best for them, which is why this whole thing works. I was going to tell you to calm down Friday but I didn’t want to rain on your parade. I hate to rain on it now but this is still going to take the same ingredients that it always has: time, hard work, being their brother’s keeper and buying into the team. Let’s keep that in mind, take a deep breath and remember to enjoy the ride again.
