John Calipari on the ‘Wildcat Code’
Over the weekend, UK incoming freshman basketball player Dominique Hawkins told the Courier-Journal’s Adam Himmelsbach that the current Wildcats were being graded this summer on work on and off the court in a mysterious system call the “Wildcat Code.”
On Monday, UK head coach John Calipari took to Twitter for some playful chastisement of Hawkins for spilling the beans and to shed some more light on the program:
The first rule of the Wildcat Code is: You do not talk about the Wildcat Code.— John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) June 17, 2013
The second rule of the Wildcat Code is: You do not talk about the Wildcat Code. LOL.— John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) June 17, 2013
In all seriousness, I’m not mad at @Dhawk_25 at all for talking about it. He’s a good kid who is doing well so far.— John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) June 17, 2013
All I can tell you about the Code right now is that it’s geared to make these guys earn everything. Nothing is given; everything is earned.— John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) June 17, 2013
The guys get a grade every day, one for academics and another for physical development. The two grades are then added together.— John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) June 17, 2013
We will tell you what they earned later in the summer. Can the #BBN wait until then?— John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) June 17, 2013

The Western Hills High School alum batted .283 with one home run, 20 RBI and 27 runs scored in 55 games this season. Baseball America ranks Riddle as the No. 327 prospect in the draft, and he is likely to hear his name called early on day three. Riddle could return to UK for a senior season, when he could possibly move to shortstop if teammate Matt Reida signs a professional contract. (Photo by Jon Hale)
