"This Is The Worst Kentucky Team I've Ever Seen" - Samford's Coach

They still lost by 32 points.

Scoop: Last night, Samford coach Bennie Seltzer told his team during the game: "this is the worst Kentucky team I've ever seen". He later implied that he was trying to instill confidence in his players.

Significance: Of course, this thing is blowing up. Kentucky players are responding. Coach Calipari has responded. Expect the Wildcats to use this as motivation going forward.

Story: First off, Samford still lost by 32 points, so we're not sure what that says about Seltzer's squad. But it's definitely no secret that Kentucky is struggling early on this year, losing to Duke, Notre Dame and Baylor. Check out the below tweets to see what Seltzer said, how Cats player Willie Cauley-Stein responded, and a video of John Calipari's reaction.
