John Calipari, UK Head Coach
On Kentucky’s NIT Selection

“I’m really disappointed we didn’t make the NCAA Tournament, but we are going to use this time to make us better. We had our chances, but I’m not going to stop. It’s a great lesson for the future of our program and a humbling experience for me as a coach. To the Big Blue Nation, you did your part all season long. You showed up in droves and helped us pull through key games. We didn’t do our part. Even now, I’m going to coach these guys, try to make them better and give everything I can to make sure we control our destiny in the future. I’m excited to return to Pittsburgh and look forward to facing a team that is going to present a real challenge for us. Robert Morris won their league in the regular season. They shoot a lot of 3-pointers, produce a lot of steals, so we have to come prepared.”

blah, blah, blah... Perhaps spend a little less time selling cars, selling yoghurt, selling banking services, selling shoes, doing ESPN television shows about how great you are, cut back on schlepping money from others for whatever the most visable charity is that day and cut back on coaching foreign teams. UK got the program it wanted with Coach Cal. All about money, brand new locker rooms and cut backs on faculty and educational opportunites for students. Will they cut out the NIT Floor and put THAT in their locker room?
