    I remember 2 seasons ago, after Selection Sunday, Calipari saying that he didn't know who UK would be playing, but that he heard that UK's region was the toughest of the 4 regions. That was a couple of lies by Calipari, which is pretty typical of him. Pretty sure that he also is lying in his statement above.

    I read it as our youth of today can only see 3 ft in-front of their face. They are VERY un-engaged. Man I am old.

    Coach Calipari's quote is a total yawn. He was trying to fire up alumni in enemy territory. People say stupid stuff in that situation. BFD and it can back fire. When I read it all Calipari ended up doing was dissing the intelligence of his own players: I would ask them (fill in the blank), and they wouldn't know. Really? You are saying that your players don't know stuff like that? Wow.

    As for Florida fans getting their collective panties all wadded up I have to say that he mentioned Florida first. That is a tell.

    This

    :eyeroll: directed to Calipari. He seems to try too hard with the amount of talent he recruits to KY. You never see Billy talking that kind of stool.

    Being everyone's "Superbowl" is a back up excuse for losses. Why else even say it? In this quote he's telling the world how hard it is to be KY, harder than any other school.

    Then ironically he tells the world he has recruited the greatest players in existence by saying everyone out there wanted to play for KY but only the best get the chance. By his own definition of the KY team they should never lose because they have the greatest of all the players.

    These are convoluted statements.

    BTW, he wasn't dissing UF, he was dissing everybody.

    I took it as a compliment. He mentioned us first, afterall. He is dissing everyone, but he pays us the compliment of mentioning us - not Michigan State, though the Michigan State deal was obviously what brought this on.

    Thanks to Billy, we are currently a basketball program that commands alot of respect.
