Calipari wraps up Camp Cal, tweets about getting better

John Calipari handed his interview session off to Kenny Payne today, but he did get a message out before the team’s flight down to South Carolina. Calipari hopped on Twitter to tell his 1.6 million followers that Camp Cal is officially over as the team gets back on its regular routine following tomorrow night’s game.

He also said he is loving his team going into this difficult two-game road stretch, and that it’s about getting better with each game, no matter the outcome.

Read the series of tweets from Cal’s Twitter feed:

Finished camp today! Went twice yesterday & then watched the football national championship, so we were together three times yesterday. The only days we had off during camp were our mandatory off days. Short of that, since we came back for Christmas, we had 2-3 sessions every day.

Now getting ready to head to South Carolina. When we get back, we’re back in class and back to a normal schedule. Hopefully we’ve set a foundation that will help us grow from this point because we are a ways away from being the team we need to be to have a special season.

I’m loving my guys and believe in each and every one of them. Some are playing better than others. Some will take longer to get it. But I’m good because they want to be coached and they want to get better.

Two tough road games ahead of us. The question we have to keep asking ourselves is, are we getting better? That thought process goes beyond all scores. We could win and step back and we could lose and step forward. For us, to be the team we want to be, it’s are we getting better.

Wheels up!

      He literally has the identical expression as the walk on immediately to his left, can guarantee both are happy to be on that plane. KP’s son isn’t smiling either, is he unhappy also? Or, is that just how some people, especially young people, pose for photographs? The article like one or two posts before this one has KW himself talking about his attitude regarding his season to this point. A couple articles before that has KP calling KW out by name for having a tremendous attitude. KW has tons of other pics where he looks just like this, as do countless other UK players past and present. Just seems like folks around here trying to turn molehills into mountains. Let the kid do his thing, he and we will be just fine.

    I dont think Whitney is happy about anything at the moment. He is way better than he has played. Whenever it clicks for him he is going to be super fun to watch.

    The people who rank these kids should be called out. Guys like Evan Daniels were way off. There are 3 star freshmen that are better than him. He can’t even make a free throw.

    Schedule is getting very tough. Six of next nine games on the road. Good luck, Cats.
