Tonight, for the first time, we saw something we hadn’t actually seen in the last 12 years of the John Calipari era, an insanely disappointed press conference.
He seems to be known as a magician, when it comes to being behind the microphone, it seems that this skill has completely disappeared.
After a last-second loss to the Georgia Bulldogs, Calipari let a bit of steam into the post-season interviews, which he may regret.
“You’re starting to lose, everyone has an answer,”; Calipari said. “Not only are they trying to move boys and do different things, but all of a sudden when you confuse a couple.”
Many shots fired fans and the media from a frustrated coach tonight.

Bluegrass fans are revealing their thoughts and opinions this season. Well, folks, Cal heard them, and at least it sounded like it was coming under his skin.
The first part of this quote is the most interesting part. One can only imagine that he has in mind the big change that the whole fan base needs, and that should have taken BJ Boston out of the starting lineup. But whatever he means, he doesn’t seem to sit well with him.
It’s no secret that this is perhaps one of the worst coaching years Calipari has had in his career at the Hall of Fame.
Should some of them blame the restrictions that COVID-19 has set for the season and out of season? Absolutely.
Did he have trouble finding the tweaks he needed to do to fix this team? Definitely.
There have been no good looks for Cal this season, but calling on fans and the media will definitely not help in any way to get everyone to unite around this team.
“You can tell what my frustration is at the moment, but I’m the coach and I have work to do and I have to find ways to win matches.”
We can only hope that he will find a way, because things have become quite bleak with incredible speed for wild cats in Kentucky.
