Sideline reporter looked to apologize to Calipari after the game

Screen Shot 2017-02-21 at 11.37.48 PM

According to our sources on the scene, the SEC Network’s Laura Rutledge was seen looking for John Calipari after the game so she could apologize for her question during their halftime interview.

She either (a) realized she messed up; or (b) was told by her producers she was out of line (and getting crushed on Twitter).

We do not know if Rutledge was able to extend that apology to Calipari, but she did get a postgame interview, so they’re all good.

UPDATE

Calipari said Rutledge did find him and apologize.

“She came over and apologized and I’m like, ‘I don’t even know what you’re talking about.’ I had no idea. If the other team — if I walk in a building and they’re not cussing me and booing me, I will retire. It’s time to retire.”

    Did she apologize to her producers for her De’Aaron Fox injury report which ended with, “no word on whether he’ll return tonight,” as he was waiting to check-in?

      But not a loud crowd; at the games of the big time programs, the crowd noise is just a huge roar.
      I could actually hear their cheers…”Hey, hey, ho, ho, take that ball and go”; I haven’t heard that since HS.

    And that being said there should not have to be things that go on that make it look like this. but

    another Calipari interview, another “I had no idea” statement. Dude never seems to have any idea about anything.

    I’m calling BS on Cal’s “I don’t even know what you’re talking about” line…
