SLO-MO SHOT: Calipari says “guy out west” is “out of his mind”

Last night, John Calipari released a PSA encouraging fans to vote on November 3, but it was another part of the video that has the Big Blue Nation talking this morning.

Calipari begins the video by telling fans, “I know you’ve been waiting for me to talk,” but the next segment is intentionally sped up so you can’t understand him. Kentucky fans being Kentucky fans, they cracked the code. Last night, UK fan Tate Renzenbrink slowed the video down and posted it on Twitter so you can hear what Cal was saying. And it sounds like he was taking a shot at Louisville coach Chris Mack, aka “the guy out west.”

“Let’s start with this. How about these guys? How about this guy here in the Finals. Are you? What! Yeah. It is crazy right now. Scheduling? The guy out west, he’s nuts. He’s out of his mind!

Jon Hale of the Courier-Journal also tweeted a slowed-down version of the video this morning, leading to mass speculation online.

The comments, of course, refer to the back-and-forth over the Kentucky/Louisville game this season. Last week, Mack posted a video saying he will do “what’s most convenient for John and his program,” a backhanded agreement to play the game on Calipari’s time, and airs some dirty laundry over scheduling.

Calipari’s response at the time? A tweet saying, “See you December 26th! Can’t wait!”

Yeah, this response is way better than that.

    No way Calipari wasn’t aware that the video could be slowed down.

    Myself, I’m tired of the Calipari Circus. I loved him when he came here but in my opinion he has worn thin. He has gotten to the point where he thinks his political opinions and advice is relevant. Now that the top high school talent has spread out and he isn’t getting the top three or four guys every year his stubbornness in coaching style is beginning to be ineffective. Oh yeah I don’t give a crap what anyone else’s opinion is, this is mine.

      I agree Southky. I don’t care what his politics are, I do not condescending advice from him.

      I need him to be interested in winning national championships. After he won it in’12, he has his championship, and seemed to go the direction of helping kids which I have no problem with, but, can’t he do both?

      Now with Trump and COVID, he seems like politics and his opinion are what matters most.

      He has done a great job here. I want him focused on UK and winning. None of the other stuff off the court does a thing for me.

    The guy out west might be nuts and out of his mind, but I noticed Cal never said he was lying. Never mind that fact.

    Chris Mack is nothing but a whiney baby. The game is always played near the end of the month. Sounds like he just doesn’t want to get a beatdown.

    Cal loves to troll the typical UL fan who falls for his act hook line and sinker. This come from a inferiority complex that UL fans have regarding anything UK. They can’t help themselves. They’ve lived in the shadow of the most successful athletic program in history and will jump at anything that suggest they’re obsessed with UK. They make it so easy to demonstrate this and to embarrass them at the same time.

    I would like to see less emphasis on showmanship and more focus on getting us to a FF and winning a national championship. Less talk and more results.

    Yea I don’t think he tries!! Lmao idiots! That % of fans that will NEVERRRRR BE SATISFIED! Bc they don’t really understand basketball! They especially don’t understand college basketball! 116 SEASONS PLAYED! We have won 8 TITLES! That is considered a TON!!!! Reason is the fact of a 6 game sgl elimination tourney, and 3pt line in modern are it is NOT easy 2 win a Title!! Coach K the great and almighty, like 5 titles in 40yrs or so.. Which is a lot in College Basketball! Fact that he just won the league by 2gms, would suggest ur badly off.. Tk out this past season.. 10yrs left. 9 trips 2 tourney, and the worst finishes in 9 NCAA trips is a sweet 16 & and 2nd rd loss to IU in a 4/5 matchup, in which we had zero post presence.. The other 7 has been elite 8 or better.. Yet that is falling off!! Lmao I would advise u to try cricket, polo some other form of sport 2 cheer for bc I promise u in a sport in which we are by far and away The Greatest College Basketball program of All-time, and it’s not even close! By the Numbers, we lead in every major statistical category except like 3. In those we r 2nd!! Lol Starting 1930-39 til present, with past 9 decades, UK finishes in top 10 win % 8 of the 9 decades, with 6 of the 8 being top 5, and cpl #1’s!! 2nd place is tied with Duke, KU, UNC with ONLY 4 Top 10 decade finishes in 9 decades!! Which means UK has more top 5 decade finishes than the SUPPOSED competition has Top 10!! Lol Cal has Coached 1 of these decades, 2010.. HE LED UK TO #1 DECADE FINISH!! Best win %, most tourney wins, games, sweet 16, elite 8, final 4’s, most league Reg & tourney titles, but yet reason he has fell short of a 2nd title in that decade in which he added not only to UK lrg lead of consistency and excellence with another Top 10 decade, by actually giving UK it’s 3rd #1 decade, not since RUPP, of the winniniest program of all time, bk to being the winniniest prog again, with
    all of that reason he hasn’t got #2 yet or 5TH yes just plz give us itleast another final 4, u only have 4 in 9trips, 4 elite 8’s.. If he was actually trying or focused during his 1st place finish as top prog of the past decade, not into showmanship and politics I just know 1 of those seasons would have ended differently!! LMAO R U KIDDING ME! Learn the game and the FACTS!! 116 seasons, ONLY 8 NCAA TITLES (again that’s considered historic) so by ur all’s opinon THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A GREAT COACH EVER!! Maybe Wooden. But he won all of his basically in a decade and half, including 7 in a row. Things never happen again. Yet UCLA ONLY HAS 3 Top 10 decade finishes. So by ur yrain of thought Wooden done a ton of losing over all those other yrs!! Coach K has a lot of disappointing NCAA finishes, with decent list of embarrassing 1st and 2nd rd exits. Add in Cal at UMASS & Memphis, and he rarely loses in a jaw dropping loss 2 a mid major or dbl figure seeded team early in tourney. Idk how he does when actually winning the entire thing is not at the forefront of his mind while in those tourney runs.. LOL And this whole now that don’t get recruits garbage, gm has chg. Still top 2 annually!! Lol Just got #1.. On our roster as we spk!! Lol Btw, 2012.. Only had 1 true bonified NBA talent! AD!! Lol Except the true state of college basketball and 116yrs worth of evidence, or ur ONLY going 2 spend 90% of ur time being invested, and then greatly disappointed! Leaving you with all this time to complain and cry!! Wait a sec, or is that what u truly enjoying doing??? Hmmm Okay, if so College basketball is prob PERFECT 4 YOU!! LOL ohhhh lordy.. Lol pathetic

      Save it, buddy! These guys could care less. If he’d won 2, he should have had 3. If he’d won 5, they would be bitching he should have won every game every year.

    Next time, you should use all caps more often. It adds some much to your narrative.
