Kentucky coach John Calipari rants about UK academics; losing Andrew Wiggins

In the hours leading up to Andrew Wiggins’ college decision, Kentucky head coach, John Calipari, most likely knew Wiggins wouldn’t choose Kentucky (Wiggins ultimately choose Kansas). Obviously aggravated, Calipari took to twitter to express his frustration.


We’re not done yet….

That’s right. Calipari tweeted four times. I think it’s fair to say he had a mini meltdown. While the tweets were mostly about academics rather than basketball, it’s safe to assume that it was a last second attempt to persuade Wiggins and his parents to change his mind and choose UK for not just their basketball program, but for their academic.

Another assumption could be that Calipari knew the outcome before hand, the reason why Wiggins didn’t choose UK and perhaps wanted to defend his program.

This is all assumptions and speculation so remember to take it with a grain of salt.
