In a recent interview with the Louisville Courier-Journal, Dominique Hawkins talked about something called "The Wildcat Code." It involved a reward system for players doing things like sitting at the front of the class, showing extra hustle in practice, etc.
Once they have accumulated enough points, they receive their game jersey. Not getting enough points can result in players losing privileges, like not getting to use their beautiful new locker room.
This seemingly mundane (and pretty straightforward) information, however, was not something that head coach John Calipari wanted to go beyond the coaching staff and players.
Referencing the movie "Fight Club," Calipari sent out a tweet stating: "The first rule of the Wildcat Code is: You do not talk about the Wildcat Code."
That was immediately followed by another which declared: "The second rule of the Wildcat Code is: You do not talk about the Wildcat Code. LOL."
When John Calipari actually types "LOL" onto a tweet, you know that he must be in a pretty good place with regards to how he feels about next year's squad.
