Here are a few other thoughts Kentucky coach John Calipari shared Thursday.

On why he would take this team over any other team in the country going into this season…
“No I’m talking about, two years ago I looked around the country and I’m saying, ‘I’m not afraid of any team out there.’ My team is losing games, but we are fine we are going to be good. No one scares me and I can tell you right now without the ball going up, we can go 0-2 to start the year. We have got a veteran Maryland team and a veteran Duke team we have to play right out of the gate with no other games. We can be 0-2 and have everybody in the state in full blown panic and they’re looking at me and I’m saying we’re fine. At the end of the year, our team will be fine. We’ve got size, we’ve got speed, we’ve got some athleticism, they’re just really inexperienced.”

On Indiana and Louisville entering the season …
“I said those were two of the better teams but, I haven’t seen all the other teams. Duke is going to be one of those teams. The have everybody back. They have more unity than they’ve had in the past. You have a team like a Syracuse, whose still going to be really good. Whereas, Ohio State, how much are they going to dip? Penn State is going to be really good. You got some teams in the Big 10 that are going to be really good, so it should be interesting.”

    AHHH Calspeak.

    What would we do without it?

    To say that the field of teams is way down this season is the understatement of the century. I don’t see anyone with the talent level that even comes close to this UK team. Having Loserville and the Lose-iers as the top two teams is an absolute joke. That was only done to keep UK out of the top spot for as long as possible. But you can only delay the inevitable for so long.

    Cal HAS to be champing at the bit to get this season started.
