Coach Cal’s Duke Flop Comment Goes Viral [VIDEO]

During halftime of last night’s Kentucky/Duke game, ESPN’s Andy Katz caught up with UK head coach John Calipari for a quick interview and assessment of the team’s performance in the first half.

Coach Cal gave his thoughts about the team, generally acknowledging mistakes but being pleased with a mere two-point margin considering the wide gap in experience between his team and Duke’s.

And then he made the comment you are about to hear:

Duke message boards lit up. Their fan base is not happy with the comment. Thing is, it was clear during the interview he was kidding. I thought it was hilarious. Duke has a reputation for flopping in an attempt to get the charge call. He was just playing off it.

What’s funny is his claim–according to Sports Illustrated’s Seth Davis–that he didn’t remember making the comment.

And, you know what? THAT also sounds like he was joking. Coach Cal is having a very good time.

He’s also regarding the Duke loss as a valuable teaching tool, as he should. Yes, when he made the comment, he probably thought, in the back of his mind, that there was a good chance the ‘Cats would lose. He’s not new at this. And he gets the Kentucky-Duke thing.

He just added something to it.
