John Calipari spent some time Thursday at the SEC Media Day again sharing his views on conference realignment and that gave him an opportunity to stress how powerful the SEC compared to other conferences.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Do you know what the buyout is in the SEC (for a school that wants to leave the conference)? ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s zero.Ã¢â‚¬Ë†If you want to leave, beat it. You will be replaced in 45 seconds. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s zero. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the buyout,Ã¢â‚¬Â Calipari said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Our league right now in basketball, we have three teams in the top 10. You have two others in the top 20, 25. But the other guys (n th league) have also moved it up.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know if the whole league has been as strong as this. But the bottom has moved. Teams that were rebuilding have moved up also. It is a hard league because there are so many terrific athletes and coaches in all these sports that it makes it hard.Ã¢â‚¬Â
