LOOK: John Calipari Walks Us Through the 2012 NCAA Championship Game

Before Kentucky head coach John Calipari applied his daily fresh coat of Just For Men, he took to Twitter where he was live-tweeting his reactions to the 2012 NCAA Championship game that was being replayed on CBS. As you might have expected, he entertained in Classic Calipari form.

Follow along on this epic journey of excitement, emotion, and Cal-isms all the way to a 67-59 ‘Cats win over Kansas.

Doron Lamb posted 22 points in the title game, by the way.

Poor Ellen can’t escape his intensity even during quartine season.

There it is! The famous “MKG weak side block that almost wasn’t a block” line.

    OMG! Without Anthony Davis, the 10 million dollar man is still looking for his 1st title! The Cal Lovers Wolfpack still does not see that! He is an average coach at best, he loses to teams that he should not! Save some money and send him packing with better coaching from a cheaper coach!

      Hey dumbass, a cheaper coach doesn’t land a AD kinda player.

    Still haven’t gotten over the 2015 Wisconsin game where Coach Cal basically did the same thing, “grind it out” and cost us the title. You had vastly superior players to Wisconsin but you panicked and slowed the play into a Big Ten game. All year we beat teams with speed and great offense, but in Final Four against Wisconsin, you choked and tried to to play small ball with Townsend down low—BTW everyone in the nation knew what you wer doing and that’s why you couldn’t execute. When you have the horses to run and MOVE the ball to excellent offensive threats besides Townsend you do it— puts a TON of pressudre on defense to defend. But they sat back, sagged off their men and forced several shot clock violations down the stretch!!
