LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - UK coach John Calipari says shooting "All-Access Kentucky", the behind the scenes program ESPN is doing on his program, is no distraction. Calipari commented at SEC Media Days in Hoover, Alabama. Florida coach Billy Donovan questioned the show.

Donovan said if the program is being used as a recruting tool he doesn't think that's right. He went on to question the show's format, saying it could be a distraction to the current players.

Calipari disagreed. "If you were in practice and see hom I'm getting on em, I don't think it matters if theres cameras there or not. They're not worried about a camera they're looking at me, like oh,oh. And if I'm on somebody else, they're like, good, glad he's on him and not me."

Calipari went on to say he's not embarrassed by what goes on. "This is who I am, here's how I coach, I have not changed. For me, I mean for somebody else that may be conscious of that, I would say then you wouldn't do it, don't do it."
