Lexington, Ky. (WKYT) - UK Coach John Calipari will be coming out with another brand new team next season and one that will again be picked to contend nationally. Cal knows the pressure will be on.

Calipari has enjoyed remarkable success coaching young talented players and once again the season will be a big challenge under pressure. In an exclusive interview with WKYT Cal said, "Especially when you lose 98 percent of your offense and 98 percent of your rebounding and your whole team is in the NBA Draft. That kind of makes it even tougher."

Calipari will but a younger team than last season on the floor but one that will again include the No. 1 recruiting class in the country. He doesn't mind the high expectations. "Ya know it's nice that they have confidence in our program, ya know kids that we're bringing in and I'm fine with it. It doesn't matter one way or another, it has no bearing on whether we'll have a good season or a bad season.)
