OXFORD, MS - Following Kentucky's 87-74 win at Ole Miss Tuesday, John Calipari was not very complimentary of the Tad Smith Coliseum.

Calipari said that he asked Rebels' head coach Andy Kennedy if he wanted Calipari to say something on behalf of Kennedy's need for a new basketball facility.

Calipari referenced how beautiful the Ole Miss campus is and how nice the football facilities are but said that every is nice except Tad Smith Coliseum.

"I'm looking in our locker room for squirrels," Calipari quipped.

Affectionately known as the "Tad Pad," the 8,700-seat arena opened in 1966. Its most recent renovation came in 2001.
