Jon "Stay Humble, Stay Hungry" Rothstein went on a Twitter frenzy this morning, sending out over a dozen tweets from a recent conversation with John Calipari. Here are the highlights: Coach Cal on... Kentucky: "We don't know what we are yet. I don't know how we'll play offensively yet. We're figuring it out." Archie Goodwin: "He'll set the tone for us defensively. He'll be like Deandre Liggins, Antonio Anderson, & MKG." Alex Poythress: "We're probably going to use him like we used Patrick Patterson. In a 4/3 type role." Willie Cauley-Stein: "He's surprising. This is the 1st time he's been fully committed to basketball because he played other sports." Ryan Harrow: "He's more like Brandon Knight, a point guard that can score. He has a good understanding of what I want." Kyle Wiltjer: "We're going to need him to score. He's going to be one of our most skilled players." Nerlens Noel: "He just needs to learn how to play every possession. We have to define what his offensive game is." Playing Nerlens Noel & Willie Cauley-Stein together: "We're going to have to do it for 8-10 minutes each game." Questions about this team: "Do I play zone with this team with three guys over 6'10"? And how do we get into our dribble drive? Those are some questions?" The SEC: "There's 14 teams in our league, I'd say seven will make the NCAAs. We're going to beat each other up." Tennessee: "They're going to be much better than people think. They play the way you win in the NCAA Tournament." An early prediction on Kentucky's starting five: Ryan Harrow, Archie Goodwin, Alex Poythress, Kyle Wiltjer, Nerlens Noel Thoughts?
