Swaggy Calipari is getting in shape for next season — and beyond

Screen Shot 2016-04-28 at 2.23.57 PM

Leave it to John Calipari to drop a little bit of gold on a slow news day. Cal just posted a video of himself working out to get in shape for next season, and man, is it swaggy. Calipari is on the elliptical machine at the Joe Craft Center while Tyler Ulis cheers him on.

“I gotta be ready to coach. It’s not like this year — I had someone else coach the team,” Cal quipped, to which Ulis responded, “I think I should have gotten some of the salary.”

Cal is also watching tape of the 2012 National Championship game to stay motivated.

“Oh yeah, I’m trying to get my mindset right, my body right, because it’s going to be wartime,” Cal vowed.

It’s not just about next season. Cal said that he has to get in shape so he can coach beyond that. OH YEAH!

“I gotta get my body right. Can I coach to my mid-70’s? Maybe. And what would that mean if I’m at Kentucky for another 20 [years]? What would that mean? Championships, draft picks, #1, lotteries. No doubt, I would have 12 guys in the NBA All-Star game. No doubt. What about wins? So, let’s see if I can get in that type of shape so when I’m 75 I’m still doing this stuff.”

G-g-g-g-gigggity! More videos coming tomorrow…

      Hope you’re right. Actually, if the young man’s math skills are good, I don’t see his dilemma.
      The algorithm is: talent+Calipari=NBA.

      And for his Mom, he could get an MBA degree to go along with his NBA degree.

    Could it not be more obvious how much Ulis loves Cal?

      You’re right. Next season will not be a nine loss season.

    These are really good times folks. Lots of wins, great kids on and off the court, chances to win championships, and a completely street whore free environment.

    I’m beginning to thing the Cal/Ulis bromance is better than Booker/Ulis.

    If Coach Cal did indeed go another 20 years averaging around 30 wins a season, that would put him in the 1,250 win range, which is well in excess of whatever Coach K will retire at in a few more seasons.

    Probably won’t happen, but isn’t it cool to think about?

    Hmmm… let’s take a stab at what the general point of this PR could have been?

    – Getting Ulis’ name mentioned again in the news?
    – Take some heat off of MM?
    – Is he declaring war on some other coach?
    – Trying to get the new recruits thinking/motivated about working out this season?

    you know there is more to this than meets the eye, right?

    best video i’ve seen in awhile. Even if he’s here for just another 10 years would be fantastic!!

    I wonder if these videos and comments from Cal are part of his marketing strategy to land recruits- esp. Bolden at the moment. Cal seems like he’s continuously thinking of ways to showcase the program, the players, the success, etc. so good!
