Kentucky plays at Louisville Saturday and is going to perhaps be a bigger underdog than it has been in any game since John Calipari arrived at Kentucky.
Louisville fans sense this is the year the Cardinals not only finally beat Calipari, but beat him and the Cats soundly.
However, if you need a bit of holiday cheer, pay attention to what Calipari said about his team after Saturday’s win over Marshall.
“Let me say this. I’m pleased. We’re a long way from home. But it shows that this team, and I keep saying — this team has more upside than any team in the country. We’re going to have games where we don’t shoot it well. Doesn’t matter. If you defend, you’re tough, you’re rough, create shots for each other, you’re going to be fine,” Calipari said.
“There’s going to be games where we’re on the road, we get a little rattled. If we’re going to be the team I think we can be, that’s going to hit us and we’re going to adjust and grind it out and play better. But I’m not worried about missed shots. You can’t. That stuff happens. It happens to every team.”
