Don't count John Calipari among that group.
On Monday morning, Coach Cal did as he often does and tweeted his thoughts on the topic of the day.
When I heard we couldn't host the first round of the NIT, I decided to accept the bid knowing we could host in the second round.-- John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) March 18, 2013
I'm not disappointed we have to start on the road b/c this team needs to prove it wants to continue to play before our fans pay for tickets.-- John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) March 18, 2013
If we had to play on the road, I'm glad it was Robert Morris because I knew what it would do for the program.-- John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) March 18, 2013
Calipari brings up an interesting point about his team needing to prove itself before fans invest more money in coming to watch the Cats play. If UK takes care of business, the Big Blue Nation will stall have two more chances to fill Rupp Arena.
