Because Kentucky will be playing Duke in Indianapolis Tuesday night, UK coach John Calipari will not be in Lexington on Election Day.
Calipari acknowledged Sunday he had thought about absentee ballots for him, his staff and in-state players.
“We have talked about the shootings, the bombs – we had a discussion about it. We had a discussion about far-right, far-left, how these kids are going to be effected by both,” Calipari said. “You’re not only effected by this, you’re effected by that too where you’re going. We talk about it.
“I talked about some of my beliefs that may not coincide with what you all think, or what the Catholic Church thinks that I’m a part of. But I told them – now you may feel different. Now whoever your candidate is, does he agree? And he doesn’t have to agree on every point.
“If you want that then you run, but we have talked about it. Absentee ballots, no I haven’t. Now I may grab them right now and ask is it too late? It might be too late. Is it too late? We just have to go to the courthouse and say we’re out of town.”
