RE: Insight into why Cal left????
he didnt have to "sell tickets" here. Put a winning team on the court and people will support you. Took him 5 years to realize that. hope he has fun coaching in that dilapidated sh!thole. Its no FEF!!

Maybe he needs to remember his last year in the NBA. I think they had him tearing tickets, not selling them. He also made the popcorn and swept the gym floor. Sorry we gave you a chance to build up our program, which you had to do to re-build your own reputation. What a punk.

Really? I guess calling Fred Smith to buy the last 300 upstairs tickets... so he could get his bonus for another sold our season ticket campaign was just too tough for him. what a self indulging prick he has turned out to be... OK, I feel better!

I read that article in it's entirety. And now I feel like I need a break. I need a break from it all. I need to take a month or whatever and put college basketball out of my mind. That was a tough pill to swallow err read.

Read the thread title in his specific post, and in the one where you quoted him. And in this one.

RE: Insight into why Cal left????
A little over 5 years ago he couldn't get 12,000 people into the Forum for a game against our biggest rival with a NCAA bid on the line. The only thing I figure that changed between then and his last game here was his recruiting and coaching which led to him winning at the level that was expected for what he was getting paid. If he is stupid enough to think that all he has to do is coach and recruit at Kentucky then he won't last long. It probably requires more PR and @$$ kissing than any other job in the country. If that job was just about recruiting and coaching then Billy Gillespie would still be there.

RE: Insight into why Cal left????
I think the loss in the National Championship Game really scarred him. It took part of his soul, and I don't think he ever recovered. I know I haven't, so imagine what he feels. He went for a new beginning.
I also believe that he was sick of not getting respect because of being in C-USA, and now that he is in Kensucky everyone is praising and talking about him and he hasn't even coached a game. He was an underdog just like us throughout his life and still is. He now has to put on a fake persona now that he is at Kensucky. I still think he is a sellout, and a punk
b!tch, but he was OUR couch for nine years and what a hell of a ride it was!!

But Cal knew about the need to sell tickets when he got here. That what was part of the job. Talking down Memphis is not going to help Kentucky do anything. He's only digging his grave because if he doesn't back up the talk, he won't be able to use any of his 'built in' excuses.
