Kentucky 'pursuit of perfection' shirts hit clearance racks after loss

The Kentucky Wildcats came into the season with high hopes. There were hopes that they could run the table and go undefeated. Some shirt makers took advantage with a “Pursuit of Perfection” shirt that they had made.

Well three games into the season and that dream is over. The No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats lost to the No. 2 Michigan Spartans in the first game of the Champions Classic on Tuesday night. That also means those shirts are already obsolete and headed to the clearance rack. They’re now selling for under $2.

“You got guys crying in there, which is a good thing,” Kentucky coach John Calipari said, via ESPN. “I want it to hurt like that. I knew this would get their attention. The biggest thing is if you don’t do this together, you won’t win. You’ll never be a special team.”

Michigan State coach Tom Izzo sent some support for the Wildcats.

“They’re going to get a lot better. Give them credit,” Izzo said. “But I thought we played awfully well for a lot of that game.”

“I keep reiterating: They’re going to get a lot better,” Izzo said.
