Coach Cal is no longer only shedding our historical title of being the winningest faculty team he’s atmosphere history. We have never lost 3 house games in a row. Unless now.

I remember being called loopy the closing two old seasons for wanting calipari fired. No longer so loopy now huh?

Or no longer it is miles no longer clear where Calipari stands after but any other loss, however the earlier coach will have to flip things around to make sure he has some job safety. The Wildcats will ogle to snap their house-shedding hump next week when they rob on Ole Miss sooner than hitting the aspect motorway for a tricky game in opposition to Auburn.
