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.”
