Sean Woods Doesn’t Think Much of Kentucky’s Current Players


During a teleconference today for the upcoming game with Kentucky, Morehead State head coach Sean Woods had some interesting quotes about the current players at Kentucky.

What began with an innocent question about Willie Cauley-Stein not knowing who Christian Laettner was and the shot he made to beat Kentucky in 1992, a team Woods was on, the first year Eagles coach opened up with what he thought about kids today.

“They didn’t seem like Kentucky basketball players to me. And I’ll leave it at that. I’m a Kentucky basketball player through and through, and there’s just a certain aura about you.
“These kids nowadays are just so different. When I was coming up, we were humble. Very humble. I think because of the success that Cal has created – which is not a bad thing, it’s a great thing – it just lets you know what Kentucky basketball is right now. But I’m just one of those kids really, really am a blueblood Kentucky guy at heart. There’s just a certain way and a certain look Kentucky basketball players should have, and not have such a sense of entitlement. I think today, it’s still an honor to wear that uniform.

It sure will be interesting to see the reaction of Rupp Arena when Woods is introduced Wednesday night.

Also, is anyone concerned about Woods comments and how the players acted when he saw them?

Update: Sean Woods clarified his comments after the teleconference on twitter.
