John Calipari is GOING TO KENTUCKY!

March 31, 2009

This is certainly going to make Big Blue happy.  I used to root for him, now I will have to root against him…Hopefully, this is someone jumping the gun and the move will not happen.  But, when the Louisville  Courier is reporting it on their on-line site, then it is probably true.  But we can wish that it was not…

Do I go for Sugar Packet #1 and take a huge booster raise from Memphis or go Packet #2 and take the money from desperate UK fans and boosters? Either way, I am paid...

Former Memphis basketball coach John Calipari called former UK coach Joe B. Hall this afternoon to tell him he was coming to Kentucky and that he intended to start the job by connecting with former UK coaches out of respect for the school’s basketball tradition.

This is the reason that the coach will be successful at UK.  He is a historian of sorts, willing to bow down and kiss th ring of the greats that came before them. One of the many reasons that I like Coach Cal is that he is willing not to forget those who cam before him.  That is the touch of class that is missing from a lot of programs, the connection with the old school…

look at the short shorts...

“That was awfully nice of him,” said Hall, who coached UK to the 1978 NCAA title. Calipari replaces Billy Gillispie, who was fired Friday after two years on the job.”

Coach Cal is a hot item.” Hall said. “He’s a great coach as well as a superior recruiter. His track record speaks for itself. I think Kentucky was looking to do something dramatic in the face of all that has gone down.”

Thank you for coming out AGAINST condoms, father.  We have a big paternity wear and baby clothing store.  Now, women and children will have to shop with us!

Calipari also intends to speak with several other former Kentucky coaches, including Eddie Sutton and Tubby Smith. No word on whether his phone call list with include Rick Pitino or Billy Gillispie.“I can’t wait until next year when we host Louisville,” Hall said. “That will be one hot ticket. Rick and Calipari wil go at it. They’re too much alike.”

You don’t have anything to prove.  You don’t have to try and beat Pitino.  Those ghosts are too difficult and hard to catch.

This is where you should be if you are trying to conquer the world....The NBA, Where Champions live...

    UK SUCKS!!!
    They have the highest expectations of any program in the country. All they do is CHEW-UP coaches. I say F-CK-EM.Tubby wasn’t good enough after several Final 4’s and a win. And now Gillispie. They can kiss my A-S all the way to their Adolph “the racist” Arena.
    You will never catch my Bruins.Plus you can’t buy CLASS. A LA John Wooden.
    HA! HA!
    BTW, the longer the deal takes the slimmer the chances are that it will happen. So if we get to Fri/Sat. Forget it Coach C is staying.
