Thursday Headlines: Has Calipari lost the players?

It’s a logical question to ask at this point

NCAA Basketball: South Carolina at Kentucky Jordan Prather-USA TODAY Sports

Has John Calipari lost the Kentucky Basketball players?

It’s not an unreasonable question.

This team has looked slightly off most of the year, but over the last few weeks, they have looked very off and things are not going well in Lexington.

And according to one anonymous coach that’s went up against Kentucky:

“I think he’s lost the players. Their offense is so shitty. He doesn’t run anything for their guards. He has no idea how to use Cason Wallace.”

We’re quickly seeing this team go off the rails and fast, and the body language, the comments by Oscar Tshiebwe about begging Calipari to put in players who would fight, and rumors continuing to swirl about tension between players and coaches, there is a lot of belief that Calipari has totally lost this group.

And that is sad with a group that should be contenders in the SEC this year and should at least be a second-weekend team in the NCAA Tournament.

Overall, just very disappointing.
