Earlier this week, Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari caused confusion by saying he wanted to build a new training facility.
“It’s a basketball school,— Calipari said. “Alabama is a football school. Georgia, too. Don’t disrespect our football team. I hope they win 10 games and go bowling. But this is a basketball school.”
Head football coach Mark Stoops heard what Calipari said, and he’s not a fan.
“Basketball school? I thought we competed in the SEC? #4 StraightPostseasonwins,” he said.
Some fans think Calipari is right because Kentucky needs a new training facility, but he’s doing the wrong thing.
“Cal shouldn’t be begging for a training base in Kentucky, but calling it a basketball school is disrespectful to the athletic department. Bad view,” the fan said.
Others think Calipari needs to stop complaining and win more basketball games.
“Stop complaining and go win basketball games. We haven’t reached the Final Four since 2014-2015. You get paid $9 million a year. Meanwhile, the football team is the best it has ever been,” said one fan.
Has Calipari gone too far?
