John Calipari will be at The Cliff tonight to cheer on the Bat Cats

How big is tonight’s game between Kentucky and NC State? John Calipari is cutting his vacation short so he can be in the stands at Cliff Hagan Stadium.

“Okay, #BBN, I’m leaving vacation early to see UK Baseball battle!” Cal tweeted a few minutes ago. “Rain or shine, let’s pack this place!!! LET’S DO THIS!!! #PackTheCliff”

Last week, Calipari recorded this pep talk for Nick Mingione and his team during a break at the SEC Spring Meetings:

Another good omen for tonight: Marlana VanHoose is singing the national anthem. As we’ve learned over the years, no one does the anthem justice like Little Marlana. Obligatory Marlana anthem video:

    How big is tonight’s game? Not big enough to be the title of the top ten morning wakeup.

      People who whine like you do in the comments make me want to go on vacation for good.

      Vacation for good has a really good ring to it, I think you’re selling that short Mrs. T… Just saying!

      Wow, that time of the month I guess.

      Fellas, don’t use the “that time of the month” comment. It makes you sound very, very stupid. We can get irritated by people 365 days a year. It’s called being a human.

      Ignore cat fan stan. Just a troll. Nothing to see here.

      lol Real has that right! Tyler seems thin-skinned today though. Perhaps jet-lag still has her down. Or maybe she’s just crabby for no reason, it happens. We get that you can post about whatever you want bc it’s your site, but you can’t be surprised people are annoyed that you dedicated the morning top news to the Preds when the Batcats are in the midst of this battle.

      I definitely did so much wrong by pointing out this is a kentucky site/app and the baseball team has a huge game today and worshiping nashville, which I don’t care about.

    Also, for the people who complain about the Reds just take a look at the picture of Cal in this post.

      looked. Still don’t give a $hit about the Reds. But hey, I can keep scanning right past those posts.

    It is a big deal because the last time I checked we have never went to a super regional in our program history.

    Thad Matta out at Ohio State. Surprising news, and certainly weird timing. But if there’s no scandal around it, I’d love for the SEC to pick up another veteran coach and continue improving the league!

    To clarify, I was complaining about the baseball team not being the title of the top 10 post, and the preds being displayed over them. Go BatCats!

    Yeah, preds suck. Ppl keep acting like they’re in the Stanley Cup Finals or something…

      They’re also acting like Nashville is in Kentucky when it’s not.
