Tuesday night, the Kentucky Wildcats were able to get a win over the Alabama Crimson Tide. However, that still won’t be enough to let people forget what happened this past weekend when the team was absolutely stunned by the lowly South Carolina Gamecocks. That loss on Saturday had many Kentucky fans, surprisingly, calling for the head of head coach John Calipari. Because of this, Calipari’s daughter, Erin, went off on the fans and even used some stats to her advantage.
In their first 5 seasons: Calipari won 81% of games @ UK. Coach K 57% @ Duke. Roy Williams 81% @ UNC. Pitino 71% @ UL…#forreference

Actually not a bad argument by the younger member of the Calipai family, and she even received some support from ESPN college basketball analyst Jeff Goodman.
@TheErinCalipari Anyone saying your dad should be fired has no clue about college basketball. First 3 years tremendous, last 2 disappointing

He does have a point. While this team didn’t go 40-0 like some had ridiculously stated in the preseason, this young group has still done a lot of good and has a solid chance to make a run in the upcoming NCAA Tournament.
