Cal again denies he’s afraid of IU, U of L nor UNC

Kentucky Coach John Calipari again denied that the idea of dropping one of the program’s traditional non-conference rivals should be seen as a reluctance to play top-notch opponents.
Cal sent a series of tweets this afternoon on scheduling and dropping IU, U of L or UNC.

“I’m the originator of playing anytime, anyplace, anywhere,” Calipari tweeted. “I just want flexibility in our scheduling to modify based on our roster.”

Calipari also tweeted that his request for fans to vote on which series to drop was meant only to foster talk.
“We put up that poll to create dialogue & the BBN delivered,” he tweeted. “That’s what makes our fans so special. They are passionate about everything.”

How about we about play the 2011-2012 schedule before we worry about future schedules. I know that it is a slow news period between games but enough about schedules.

Ain’t we beat this horse to death yet?

Cal is going to show his ‘devil may care’ attitude over the next four games with the following schedule.
The ratings are those in the Saragin Ratings.
Chattanooga 306
Samford 296
Loyola (Md) 100
Lamar 74
Then we are going to play Louisville, one of the teams up for consideration to be dropped.
Wonder who Barnhart and Cal would replace them with?
Birnghamton-New York, No. 345 could probably use the money.
