John Calipari minimizes the significance of the SEC basketball tournament:
“We’re playing for a seed. That’s what we’re playing for,” Calipari said. “Now, we’d like to win this tournament, but it’s not the end-all for us. Our whole goal is that seed, and if we lose our first game, we’re not going to be a No. 1 seed. If we win the first and lose the second, then I think we’ve done enough to get that 1 seed.”
He’s right, of course. But would you ever want to hear Mark Richt utter something akin to that?
