“We’re chasing perfection. We’re chasing greatness. We’re chasing things that have never been done in the history of our game,” Calipari said. “People say, ‘Pressure!’ Man, pressure brings out the best. ‘You’re gonna be fired if you don’t get this done!’
“Wakes you up earlier in the morning. I don’t mind a little pressure. I’ve had it my whole career. I’ve had the gun to my head for 20-something years. And you know what? I’m at my best when the gun is to my head.”
Calipari’s confidence comes, in part, from a roster that will feature eight former McDonald’s All-Americans and 10 players who were top-50 recruits nationally. So even without Wiggins, Calipari wasn’t shying away from talk of going 40-0 next season.
