Considering the amount of non-stop coverage of the NCAA Title game tonight between John Calipari’s Kentucky Wildcats and Bill Self’s Kansas Jayhawks, we will skip breaking down the game and get straight to the pick.
Barring any last minute suspensions or injuries, Calipari should plan on bringing his nicest pair of scissors to the game tonight — he’ll need them to cut down the nets after he wins his first national championship.
The gaping hole in Coach Cal’s stellar head coaching resume has long been a missing national championship, but tonight that hole will be filled at the expense of the Jayhawks.
Asked whether he would help his players trim the nets after a national championship, Calipari said, “Haven’t thought about it. Depends on how I feel.”
He’ll feel just fine.
