UK’s Calipari Not Exactly Pumped For SEC Tourney

Ho-hum.  That’s John Calipari’s attitude toward conference tournaments.  Reading his statements on this week’s gathering in New Orleans, you can almost imagine a pause for a yawn:

“Three games in three days doesn’t prepare you for anything.  We just played a whole league schedule…

Fans spend their vacation money, their rent money, their cigarette money, and they go to this tournament. … You almost feel an obligation.  Let’s go play.”

Well, if they’re blowing their money for smokes on getting to New Orleans, then ya gotta at least show up.  Still, Calipari told The Lexington Herald-Leader that all this is just “prelude” to the NCAA tourney.

“For our league, (the SEC Tournament) has no bearing on seeding.  We proved that last year. …

Maybe one team can play in (to the NCAA tourney, but) they had all season to play in…

Three games in three days is like nothing.  It’s like playing in Maui (in November).  It wears you out…

But we’ll be there.”

Mike Slive’s likely thought: “We’re trying to sell some tickets down here, fella.”
