  • MBB Practice Facility

    So, one of the topics Calipari has brought up recently is the practice facility and the state of the facilities. His current media outlet, Kyle Tucker, has an article today which mentions Cal saying the locker room smelled like urine at one point…it’s under a paywall so I can’t read the whole thing.

    He goes on to say that he wants a new practice facility on campus and he wants to help with fundraising for the facility.

    As with most things, on its face that sounds great but of course there are other implications and messages associated with that sort of commentary and the methods with which it was made.

    What do you all think about this?

    If they want to be atop the facilities arms race in MBB they need a residence hall upgrade and probably an improved practice facility.

    If the locker room smells like urine, that is a player / custodial issue. Gotta aim and flush fellas, shooting 40% at the urinal isn't a winning percentage.
    Aspirational...

      Given that people are happier with the UK Football program right now, Cal might be well advised to mind the room.

          We would have to be able to read the article, but it mentioned that a circus had been at Rupp and I think his comment was regarding the age of the facility as well as the HVAC.

          I think it will be reprinted soon such that we can actually read it.

            He starts speaking about it at ~13:55 --



            I'm sorry, I thought it was from an interview with Kyle Tucker. There is an article on The Athletic but fortunately it's available for all to see.

              Cal had to shoot his mouth off and now there's friction between the bb program and the fb program.

                Doubt it’ll last beyond this afternoon.

                  He needs to BANISH this language from his mouth forever.

                  It isn't a zero-sum game, but football pulls more revenue than basketball for the entire program so... SHUT THE FRONT DOOR.

                    Not sure why it was necessary to go there other than sometimes Cal loves listening to himself blather.

                    It’ll be forgotten in 72 hours if not before.

                    But I think the point he’s trying to make is that if we want to self-fund we better be a basketball school. Because very few programs can get something like what Cal wants accomplished. The benefactors and money men and politicians better all show up.

                      I don't know. Coaches Stoops and Marrow fired a return volley and one of the fb players (Vito Tisdale) lampooned Cal and the bb team.

                        Non-issue. The coaches will talk behind close doors and Vito will always be pissed about something because he’s a knucklehead, for lack of a better word.

                          Maybe Cal should start winning in the Post Season like Mark Stoops is doing...I hate to see friction between the 2 sports

                            He wins in the post-season almost every year. You get to the tournament and win a game, you won in the post-season.

                            If you’re really trying to compare one of 137 bowl games to the basketball national championship, it might be time to admit that you and a few others made up your mind about Cal a while back and are now ready to pounce at the drop of a hat, substance be damned.

                              It was just my opinion.....not ready to pounce from Cal or basketball

                              and Cal hasn't made the post season since 2019......minus the covid season
