John Calipari Media Day Press Conference (VIDEO)

Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

The college basketball season is upon us, and the Kentucky Wildcats held their annual Media Day on Wednesday.

As is the case every year, head coach John Calipari was a great listen as he previewed this year's Wildcats. among the biggest topics were the eligibility status of Skal Labissiere, the health of Alex Poythress and how he'll manage this year's team from a rotation/platooning standpoint.

Cal also gushed about how Tyler Ulis is one off the best point guards and floor general he's ever coach while also noting how Ulis will help Isaiah Briscoe, Charles Matthews and Jamal Murray to focus more on finishing plays vs. having to make plays like they did frequently in college.

Oh, and a provided a slightly grotesque story on Derek Willis injury and how it didn't even seem to bother him.

Here is a replay of everything Cal had to say about this year's edition of Kentucky basketball, courtesy of Kentucky Wildcats TV:
