College basketball: SEC coaches try to say something nice about their rivals

It's rivalry week in college basketball. And in the spirit of friendship, the SEC Network asked the conference's men's and women's basketball coaches to say something nice about their most disliked adversaries.

They tried. They failed.

Most couldn't think of anything to say at all. Others complimented the arena instead. And then Kentucky's John Calipari dropped the best line at the end of the video.

Once the games begin, we're sure these coaches won't be this quiet for long.
