“If we won a game against the No. 1 team in the country in Rupp Arena, would people charge the court? No. You're supposed to [win]. You're Kentucky. We don't do that here.”

“That Louisville game we had 100 writers. Hundred media. Seven wrote stories. Ninety-three had the other story written. 'They're gonna lose. You can't do it. Cal doesn't care about Kentucky or basketball, college, he's just trying to get guys to the NBA. This is bad for [college basketball].’ But we won, and we won big with a young team. And Julius [Randle] didn't play the second half! So they couldn't write the story. So seven were written."
