How exciting is this tweet from the official UK basketball account?

While Coach Cal is off gallivanting around Italy, someone back stateside is having fun on Twitter with the official UK men’s basketball account. The account sent out a very swaggy tweet on Monday:

Calipari was too busy taking pictures of fountains in the Piazza Navona for it to be him behind the confident tweet, but it is probably a very accurate representation of Calipari’s mood after landing Johnny Juzang to move up to the top-ranked class. It could also be a hint toward more to come this week with Jaden McDaniels nearing his announcement and internet whispers that McDaniels already submitted his LOI to UK.

Whatever the case, Calipari and his assistant coaches are feeling confident again as next year’s roster is getting finalized. More big news is hopefully on the way too.

Go Cats.

    Pretty sure we got him! Hearing from a lot of people that work at UK saying that he has indeed already signed.

    Really hoping we do get McDaniels. And that both Nick and EJ come back.

    And then if Blackshear comes, look out.

    But for what it’s worth, the people who complain Cal’s lost his touch don’t say he can’t recruit at all. They say he can’t get the superstars, the top-5 guys, his system needs when he has so much turnover. They say we were supposed to get one of those 3 guys Duke got last year; they say we were supposed to get Wiseman or maybe even Carey this year.

    Whether they’re right that we need those guys for Cal’s system can be debated, but he’s not really had that game changer in a few years. And we’ve not made the Final Four in those few years. He set a standard that the “he can’t recruit anymore” people are pointing too.

    (For the record, I’m not really one of those people. I love when we get the game changers, but I also loved rooting for the team the last few years without the top-of-the-draft guy on the roster.)

    Internet whispers = Bigfoot, Loch Ness Monster, Sasquatch. Give me a break with that.

      There may even actually be MORE truth to the cryptids you mentioned than there are in internet whispers.
