"If you ask me if I’m ever going to platoon again, my answer is NO," Cal wrote on his site. "Last season was an absolute outlier. It’s just not the way I like to coach. I would rather play seven or eight guys because I believe that gives us the best chance to win. I think we wrote the book on platooning this year, but I hope we stick it on the shelf and never have to use it again." He also reminded us that Kentucky is a players first program and it's the best at developing players for the NBA. You listening, future recruits? The timing of Cal's message isn't a coincidence, after he missed out on his spring targets. This seems to be his way of telling us, "Hey, BBN, don't worry about our roster; I only like to play seven or eight guys anyway." Read it here: "We may never platoon again, but players will always come first"
