John Calipari Points Out He's Going to 'Refuse to Lose' at NCAA Tournament John Calipari is refusing to lose, no matter where he coaches.

Coach Cal, who got the New England region to buy into his famed ‘Refuse to Lose’ mantra during his UMass coaching days, points out that he means business in this year’s March Madness.

Don’t blame the guy for sticking to his guns. Needless to say, he likes these three words. Back in 1996, he won approval to trademark the slogan.

Quote of the day

“I don’t think it was a real good check. He just kind of fell and it was a dangerous moment. It was not a hard hit. I just wanted to push him. I didn’t hit him hard. I pushed him, but he fell bad. It probably looks bad. I thought it was going to be two minutes, but the linesman came to me and said ‘Game over.'”

Maybe the rules should change regarding 7th Player Award voting. If you can’t spell your choice’s name, your vote doesn’t count.

“there really shouldnt even be an award this year, but when you look at what the 7th player means, you have to give it to johnny boychuck. He wasnt even one of your 6 d-men at the start of the season and he has been here for almost the whole season and played above and beyond expectations.”
