Kentucky men's basketball coach John Calipari loves a good conspiracy theory.
With his team floundering at 1-5, off to the program’s worst start to a season since 1927, Calipari is going back to the well for his latest public relations strategy to deflect attention away from his players’ struggles by uniting Big Blue Nation against a common foe.
“They just moved our game from ESPN2 to ESPN,” Calipari said on his radio show Monday. “Why do you think they did that? They’re hoping, here’s (loss) No. 6. We’ve got to ruin ESPN’s weekend. That’s got to be our job. We’ve got to ruin your weekend. We know why you’re putting us on ESPN. You want more people to go to the execution. Well, we ain’t having it.”
