John Calipari’s Speech to His Kentucky Team After Making the Final Four May Make You Like John Calipari

John Calipari and his Kentucky Wildcats have been under a tremendous amount of scrutiny this year. A regular season full of underachieving after sky-high expectations didn’t help quiet the criticism.

Things looked pretty bleak. Hell, we all jumped on the Wildcats fan with the premature national championship tattoo and said mean things about him on the internet.

Sorry about that, guy.

But Coach Cal’s team is getting the last laugh with their remarkable NCAA Tournament run. After a thrilling victory over Michigan yesterday catapulted them into the Final Four, the scene in the locker room was pretty unique.

Calipari shared some honest thoughts with his team. It may just humanize him in your eyes.

I know. Strange, strange times.
