Calipari Requests Space for His Players on Trip to Houston


University of Kentucky head coach John Calipari is asking Big Blue Nation to take a step back from the team and staff during the Final Four in Houston.

Here is an excerpt of Calipari's comments from CoachCal.com:

“If we take care of our business, there will be plenty of time to get autographs and personal photos beginning next Tuesday,” Coach Cal said. “We have the greatest fans in America and we want to reward them with our players’ undivided attention, focus and peak physical condition.”

He continued:

“You can scream at them, cheer for them in the open practice and take pictures from afar – but in order to make sure they – and our staff – doesn’t get worn down by thousands and thousands of requests at the hotel and in public, I’m just asking that you’ll give us all our space while we’re in Houston,” Coach Cal said. “I mean no disrespect at all and I know you all understand that we take pride in being The Commonwealth’s Team. But this is a business trip for these young men and our program. Let’s take care of business first and then we can have some fun later.”

I agree focus on the business at hand. Be safe and prayers to watch over the UK staff, players, family and fans as they travel.
