Can Kentucky coach John Calipari really remain calm on the sideline during games?
He says yes, and made a big effort in Tuesday’s win over Tennessee to control his emotions and not get on his young players quite as much during the game.
But do his players believe that reserved demeanor can continue?
“No, I don’t think so. He has been coaching this way for a long time. He’s not going to change his coaching style. We just have to get used to it,” freshman Alex Poythress said.
I agree. In Calipari’s words, he is what he is and Calipari is a fighter who pushes his players.
And that’s what his players want.
“No I wouldn’t want him to change. He is fine the way he is,” Poythress said. “We call came here to play for him and want him to be himself with us.”
