On ESPNs "Signing day special Coach Cal stated he believes that he will get 1 or 2 more recruits for the 2013 class as was on a thread earlier this week. He also spoke highly of the 5 players that have already signed in this class. I think one thing that he made clear in the interview that is a major plus when he goes into a recruits home is that he doesnt mention any other schools in any way. I think recruits really respect that and means that Cal is a quality coach and person and that theres no point in saying anything but what UK is all about.
Interesting you say that about his recruiting pitch. When you think about it from a marketing standpoint you see parallels with certain companies or products. For example, think about the iPhone and iPad and how Apple markets those products in comparison to competitors. They strictly talk about their product and it's capabilities (whether you like them or not), while competitors often take shots at Apple. The result has been a very loyal following and despite the iPhone losing some market share (expected with kind of being first to market) their one phone continues to hold a huge chunk of the smartphone market.
Calipari uses that same logic. It works. I don't really see anyone touching him on the trail, ever.
You got to start reading our notes and stuff Sleepy, Calipari told us local guys that at yesterday's presser too. :)
Matt, Im aware of that and I stated that it had been said in a thread here this week. I just thought it was relevant that he said it on ESPNU during an interview. I try to read all the stuff you guys put out because its really great info and some unique view points. Sorry if I did something wrong although what I said about him saying he was going to get 1or 2 more was a very small part of the entire thread comment. I will try in the future not to repeat what has been said in one the threads or statements that you guys have said. Again sorry about that.
