Heading into the playoffs, most teams are ultra-secretive about their team practices. Some pro football practices resemble a military exercise with people up in stands looking for any prying eyes of on the watch for Bill Belicheck and his video cameras. Not the University of Kentucky and John Calipari. Today at 3:00 PM, Calipari will bare his soul (unlikely), and reveal to the world the secrets that make his top rated Wildcats tick (even more unlikely).
What he will do is hold a public practice for UK students that will be broadcast nationally on ESPNU from 3-5 PM today. Don’t expect any glimpses on how the DDMO runs or late game scenarios strategy sessions revealed, but it is almost unheard of for a coach to do this in any sport, much less the top rated team in the country.
