Kentucky basketball fans are ready to panic after UK lost a third straight game at Texas A&M Saturday — and a fourth could be coming Wednesday at Auburn.
During his time at Kentucky, coach John Calipari had never lost three straight games until Saturday. His team is now tied fox SIXTH in the SEC after being picked to win the league.
So why does Calipari insist he is not going to panic?
“Because I’ve done this 30 years. I’ve I had been a two-year coach, I’d probably be panicking right now. But I’ve done this long enough and a big part of it is, they have to want this to happen and I believe they do and I believe they’re embarrassed by their play,” Calipari said after Saturday’s loss.
“I believe that. If I didn’t — and I told them, ‘if I want this worse than you want this, please tell me so I can start taking my wife to movies and dinners.’ They want this. They want it for each other. It’s just, a tough deal.”
