ESPN: “Everybody wants to be like Kentucky nowadays”

coach-k-calipari

Myron Medcalf over at ESPN.com has an outstanding piece on John Calipari and Calipari’s mission to keep Kentucky’s one-and-done machine churning above the rest, because they’re all coming for his spot.

Medcalf’s article paints a great picture of Calipari’s swag, but has an emphasis on the current rivalry with Duke, both on and off the court.

One of the best parts is this quote from Cal:

“You’re not gonna do what we do better than we do it. Even if you’re doing what we do, you’re not gonna do it better. I’m absolutely convinced of that.”

He also told ESPN:

“It took Duke to do it for it to become OK. And that’s, everybody knows … I’m not saying it to be nasty or mean. It is what it is. The minute that happened, they said, ‘You know, Coach K adjusted to the times,’ and it was great.”

Take second to read the whole thing whenever you get a chance. A lot of it you will already know, but Medcalf does a good job of telling the story of college basketball’s new rivalry.

    Yes. He is absolutely the best fit for the UK job. Nowhere else on earth can you find someone that spends every waking moment bloviating about their perceived greatness to a band of sheep who refuse to call him out for the fact that for all of the bloviating he hasn’t accomplished on the court nearly what his ego is telling himself he has. One Championship with all of this talent in 8 years. Big deal.

      Do the Yankees win the series every year with the biggest payroll? STFU and go home .
      Neither the FBI nor the criminals like or respect an informant. Trash at its finest.

    The only things d UK e is better at than Kentucky is flopping and tripping. And I hope we never get to that level, where we copy them.
