I got this email before UK won at Mississippi and thought it might be thought-provoking to share what Keith Peel, a long-time UK fan, is wondering:
“Does Cal ever talk about ‘owning’ his performance? We continue to see the same coaching mistakes 2 years in a row. Players are soft, not playing hard all the time, concerned about their individual stats not to mention not playing the players that have the most fight and do the little things ( get 50/50 balls, block out, hustle back on defense) to make the team successful.
“He refuses to adjust his offense and defense to the players abilities ( ie play more zone, use more traditional post oriented offense such as high-low or double low post). We are not a guard oriented offensive team because our guards cannot beat anyone off the dribble consistently.
“I just think the coach should be willing to ‘own’ his performance but I haven’t heard him do much of it. What do you think?”
I think Calipari does second guess himself but I do also think he believes in what he does will work and can work year after year?
What do you think?
