So maybe there is something to the whole one and done philosophy he embraces--only he doesn't want it called that anymore.
“Succeed and proceed” is John Calipari’s suggested new slogan for “one-and-done."

Feel free to take a moment and laugh if you'd like......Done? Okay.
I see what he is trying to say. He's embracing the fact that so many off his players play one season and head to the NBA; a practice that many despise and think hurts the game at both levels. So rather than let it have the negative connation it has he's put a little spin on it.
Succeed--win, preferably a championship of some kind. Proceed--right on to the NBA.
Rinse and repeat.
I didn't see him make the comments so I don't know if he was serious or not, but since the team is decked out in 'Succeed and Proceed' t-shirts I'm going to guess he is.
Go ahead--shake your head in disbelief. I certainly am.
