KENTUCKY RUMORS & GOSSIP

Georgia-Kentucky Preview

For nearly two years, Kentucky has rarely been threatened at Rupp Arena. Despite history indicating that's likely to continue Tuesday night, the Wildcats aren't taking defensive-minded Georgia lightly. No. 22 Kentucky looks to continue its dominance in all facets as it goes for the second-longest winning streak at Rupp. Kentucky (17-6, 7-3 SEC) has won 33 straight home games by...

Kentucky has a depth problem, and the echoes of 2014 linger

Sure, John Calipari has never had a recruiting class ranked lower than second at Kentucky. It’s also true that whenever Calipari has struggled, he has usually been able to right the ship before it was too late. This dynamic was never more apparent than in 2014, when Calipari took an eighth-seeded team to the national championship game, and it took a seventh-seeded group from Connecticut...

Kentucky signs 25 prospects, including 5 in-state players

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Kentucky coach Mark Stoops didn't flinch, saying his fourth recruiting class is his best ever.

Kentucky-Tennessee Preview

John Calipari entrusts the Kentucky offense to Tyler Ulis because he recognizes when to score and when to become a distributor. But the sophomore point guard has added plenty of mileage on his diminutive body lately, and Calipari is trying to figure out the best way to handle Ulis' minutes. Calipari is hoping Ulis and the 20th-ranked Wildcats start strong Tuesday night against...

Video: John Calipari says UK will ‘probably’ lose to Kansas tonight

The Kentucky Wildcats certainly aren’t the same team they were last year. They aren’t one of the worst teams in the country, but after going undefeated and just missing the Final Four last year, 16-4 doesn’t look too great. They play the fourth-ranked Kansas Jayhawks tonight and it seems like head coach John Calipari isn’t too confident about his team’s chances. When his...

John Calipari says Kentucky will “probably” lose to Kansas tonight

Friday night, ahead of UK’s big showdown with Kansas in the Big 12 / SEC Challenge, Coach Cal was asked by a Jayhawks fan if he is “ready to take an L” against his former employer. Calipari, oddly enough, said that Kentucky will, in fact, “probably” lose. The video was brought to our attention by The Big Lead....

Kentucky bounced back with win over Arkansas

Kentucky was able to bounce back from a very difficult loss with a huge 80-66 pummeling of the Arkansas Razorbacks.

John Calipari uses Powerball tickets as learning tool for Kentucky

If you have not heard, the Powerball is up to a record $1.3 billion. Do you have your ticket, or tickets, yet? Each player on Kentucky has a ticket, and it was given to them by head coach John Calipari in an effort to teach them all a bit of a life lesson. Calipari had each player pay him two bucks for the ticket (the irony of a head coach making a couple bucks off of his players...

Report: Calipari would want 10-year, $120M NBA contract

John Calipari has repeatedly said he plans on staying at Kentucky. However, he apparently could be lured to the NBA — for the right price.

John Calipari swears that he enjoys rapper Drake’s involvement with the Kentucky basketball program, but he may want to brush Drake up on the NCAA rule book at some point soon. For the second time in the last six months, Drake was cited in a minor NCAA violation self-reported by the Kentucky basketball program. Last time, it was for hanging out with recruits.

John Calipari attempts to use a hoverboard, fails miserably (Video)

John Calipari became the latest to try a hoverboard, and it didn’t go too well. The Kentucky coach posted a video of his attempt to his Twitter account. Calipari, to his credit, seems to know that it’s a doomed effort. He never even stands on his own, freaks out when it starts moving, and gets out of there as soon as he realizes that he has absolutely no chance of staying upright...
