There’s no doubt that A. Mark Stoops has turned around the Kentucky football program and B. Kentucky is still a basketball school.
However, the two coaches appear to have major disagreements about the university’s focus:
It started with this article by The Athletic, where John Calipari made comments about wanting a new practice facility:
"This is a basketball school. Alabama is a football school. So is Georgia. No disrespect to our football team. I hope they win 10 games and go to bowls. But this is a basketball school."
John Calipari wants his practice facility ASAP.https://t.co/0zlHJxlXmT

Stoops did not appreciate the comments:

Stoops: “I don’t care about anyone’s program, I stay in my lane. But when you start talking about mine, and people I compete against, I’m going to defend my players… Don’t demean and distract from what we’ve done to get to this point.”

Stoops fired back at Coach Cal and then he took a swing a Beamer from South Carolina talking about making a video in sun glasses doest build your culture.August 18, 2022 at 10:13 pm #19128GatorDMDITG Subscriber
What’s the problem with what he said? UK is a basketball school. That’s 100% true.
Florida is a football school. Should Golden get mad if Napier said it?
