We've heard it many times from John Calipari...the UK basketball program is a players first destination...even in bad times.

Cal's joked that during the off-season when someone asks him about losing in the NIT, his response of being beaten by Robert Morris is usually met with "One guy?"

No one likes to lose, but it's part of college basketball and Cal's way of showing Solid Blue fans that even when the team hits a slump year, if you want to bring in the top crop every season, it's beter to be players first because his guys still succeed.

Hear from Cal in the video.

Then why have them waste their time in class Cal. Cheat around that, have all their classes dealing with the old roundball , Roundball math, and Roundball science and Roundball economics, Roundball history but take out that championship game with Georgetown, pitiful shooting. Just face it U.K. is a stepping stone to the NBA and the millions. Now for the negative at U.K. get rid of the football, maybe intramural Rugby!
