Again, Coach Cal softens the blow before tourney begins

NASHVILLE, TN - MARCH 10:  John Calipari the head coach of the Kentucky Wildcats gives instructions to his team against the Georgia Bulldogs during the quarterfinals of the SEC Basketball Tournament at Bridgestone Arena on March 10, 2017 in Nashville, TenWith the NCAA Tournament set to get underway this week, it seems as if Kentucky head coach John Calipari is softening the blow in preparation for a potential Wildcats loss. As Colin Cowherd noted Monday on The Herd, this isn't the first time this has occurred.

Watch below.

"For the second year in a row, John Calipari came out and tried to soften the blow if he loses. Yesterday he came out and said I don't like the way they seed the tournament. Back to back years Calipari is starting to feel the heat. Kentucky is arguably the greatest program of all time. They aim for a national championship (every year). He's been there eight years and he has one title. They're not going to fire him but, Calipari is going to start feeling like Cali-ponzi. He's been known as the best salesmen in college basketball. Although they dominate the SEC, he's got two things working against him...Coach K has five titles at Duke. And Nick Saban in the same eight years, he has four national titles. And in football you shouldn't dominate like that. Basketball isn't a sport of attrition, but football is....For two years, right before the tournament, Calipari softens the blow..."
