I know that the story has been beaten to death, but personally I love that John Calipari took the dead horse and cremated it and buried the ashes so this story can never be brought up again. We are talking about the Kentucky/Indiana basketball series. Calipari was doing a press conference for his fantasy camp (more on that in a bit) and the subject of Kentucky’s basketball schedule came up. I think Cal is a bit tired of talking about it:
“Well, schedule for America. I’m not scheduling for America. I’m scheduling for us. I like the fact in 1948, Adolph Rupp played eight neutral games. I like the fact that Rick Pitino played five and six neutral games and so did Tubby Smith.”
“The one thing that’s changed, we are one of the few that can go to football stadiums during the regular season. Well, why would you do it. Because we can.”
And what about Tom Crean’s whine that the UK/IU games have to be played at the IU campus because the fans apparently do not have cars? Cal had an answer:
“They are only two hours away. Are they that poor? They couldn’t get to that building? Our students are going.”
Oooof. Love that Calipari.
