Last night was Selection Sunday, which means it was time for Coach Cal’s annual TV interviews across all platforms.
This included him talking about his wife, Ellen, how tough Abilene Christian is going to be for his Kentucky Wildcats, and how much the SEC has improved with seven teams in the tournament:
Cal then went of course and started about his favorite shows, which included Alaska: The Last Frontier, and claimed that he could live in the Alaskan wilderness.
Well Gonzaga Bulldogs head coach Mark Few doesn’t think he could:
Cal double-down on his claim earlier today on Twitter:
Everyone was killing me last night saying I couldn’t last in Alaska. Said I wouldn’t last 10 minutes. I could live off the grid easily!!! Chopping wood. Fishing. Hunting squirrels and a moose now and then. Scaring bears. Pooping in the woods. Come on Alaska! Kilchers, Heimo, Sue.— John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) March 18, 2019
I’ll take the under on 10 minutes. https://t.co/dkfUgfawzI— TJ Beisner (@tjbeisner) March 18, 2019
But it seems that the entire Calipari family, besides Coach, doesn’t agree with that sentiment:
We were arguing about this in our family group chat this morning. There is no way he would last more than 1 hour in the wilderness. He’s literally never been camping https://t.co/uVuyqWtLyQ— Megan Calipari (@MeganteCalipari) March 18, 2019
Maybe this summer @TheErinCalipari and I will take our family camping and film what happens. How will @bradcalipari survive without his wardrobe? How will @UKCoachCalipari survive period?— Megan Calipari (@MeganteCalipari) March 18, 2019
Either way, you know Coach Cal is feeling good when he’s talking about surviving in the woods ahead of the biggest time of the college basketball season. Swaggy Cal is the best Cal, although I don’t see him being a poop-in-the-woods kind of guy, like he claims.
