John Calipari opens up about loss to K-State

Coach Cal is proud of how far his team came after it appeared their season was lost long before the postseason began.

Many of us woke up this morning after a long night last night and still can’t get over what transpired in Atlanta.

That sick feeling you had? Calipari is feeling it too. The Wildcats’ head coach had this message for the Big Blue Nation on Twitter this morning.

Cal makes some good points. It was clear last night that the team was taking the loss as hard as anyone, despite what a lot of folks want to say about Kentucky’s players not caring every year. It’s clear that Calipari cares too. He wants to see these guys succeed and there’s no doubt he wanted to get back to the Final Four with this group.

However, it just wasn’t in the cards. Last night was just one of those nights where nothing seemed to be going Kentucky’s way. Guys weren’t hitting shots that they have hit on so many occasions and Kansas State shot the ball from the perimeter better than expected.

But now, it’s time to move on and begin getting into the recruiting scene to see who may join the team next year and the picture of who will return will begin to become clear in the next few weeks.

However, I have a notion that this sick feeling will be sticking around for just a little while longer.
