LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - UK coach John Calipari always seems tireless. But at SEC Media Days in Hoover, Alabama this week, Calipari said he's tired by anxiety.
Calipari is coaching anohter talented team but it's younger than last season. Cal says it takes its toll. "I'll tell ya what's making me tired right now is thinking of how much work I have to do with this team. So there's an anxiety that goes with, oh my gosh we've got work to do, that tires you out. Anxiety tires me out, the other stuff doesn't, the work."
Coming off an NCAA title and going into his fourth season in Lexington, Calipari says he does rest. "If I need a nap I take a nap. But the anxiety of, we're not that good, we have a chance but we've got a lot of work to do, that tires you out."
