The folks at the four-letter network brought their hot takes following the second weekend of the NCAA Tournament.
As ESPN’s panelists broke down Kentucky’s Elite Eight loss to Auburn on the Monday morning edition of Get Up, “Is John Calipari’s job in jeopardy?” flashed across the screen once Jay Williams turned to UK’s mistakes.
“They got out-coached and out-played,” Williams said before arguing that Nick Richards and E.J. Montgomery should have taken minutes from Reid Travis. He made that argument with a straight face. Jalen Rose followed that up by reiterating a point we’ve heard often — Coach K is stealing top talent that used to play for Kentucky.
If you watch the entire segment, you actually will not hear anyone on set say that John Calipari’s job is in jeopardy. The graphics department used a hot take to grab attention, and it worked.
