John Calipari Delights Kansas Fan by Admitting Kentucky Will "Probably" Lose to Jayhawks

Kentucky will play Kansas in Lawrence tonight as part of the Big 12/SEC Challenge. A late-season matchup between traditional powers is the perfect showcase for college basketball on a weekend without any meaningful football. It could be argued, however, that this year’s version of the game lacks some of the intrigue of years past due to Kentucky’s struggles.

A confident Jayhawks fan was able to get close enough to John Calipari to ask if he was “ready to take that L tomorrow” and the Wildcats coach handled it perfectly.

“We probably will,” Calipari said with a smile.

That is the answer of a man skilled in media relations. Give the people what they want without accidentally guaranteeing victory. Keep expectations low and embrace the role of a 5-point underdog. Brilliant.
