It's nice to see that our former coach is still as full of himself as he has always been. He had better win big and win big the first couple of seasons or he will be run out of town quicker than he can say "miserables."

How in the world did this thread end up on the KENTUCKY Ncaabs board??? It was on the Memphis Sports NTR board, but somehow it got moved here.

I think Cal has tainted our program. He is a weasel. Take a look at http://onlyinmemphis.wordpress.com/ Cal has never run a clean program and he will not change. He is not good enough for UK.

Well, I think Josh Pastner's already outperforming Cal at Memphis recruiting...http://www.collegehoopsvideo.com/2009/06...coach-cal/
Only 8 weeks into it too.

You know TigerTitan, I was wondering the same thing. I wandered on to this board seeking more news about the re-alignment stories and then look at the Kentucky board postings. I saw this one and a couple of others and was amazed that they have nothing to do much with Kentucky.

This whole thing (and yes I read the whole dang thing) is nothing but the frustrations of Memphis fans over the fact that Calipari left you when he got a chance to move up the ladder.01-lauramac2 And whether you want to admit it or not any coach at a school like Memphis would grab at the chance to move to UK, UNC, Kansas, or even (may their name be forever cursed) Duke, and several others.

Would any of us not welcome a chance to get paid more, with fewer hassles (like fundraising), get greater recognition, on a bigger stage?
I would.

And in all his interviews that I have heard or read, this is as close as I have come to his making a negative comment about Memphis, and I did not take it as being all that negative.

As to whether he did right by you or not ask yourselves this question, "was the program better when he left than when he arrived?" And keep in mind, most coach's contracts have a clause that lets them terminate early if they get an offer to move up, as a chance to coach at a higher level (NBA or NCAA higher level school). Just as Asst. Coaches have the same out if offered a head coaching job.
And so far we are rather pleased with what he has done to bring back the luster that had been hidden under the dust of the past few years. He seems to be what Uk needed, and this year we get to see what he can do with some depth on the bench.

Who knows, maybe we can play against each other late in March, now that would be a real barn burner of a game now wouldn't it? Hope you have a good season.04-cheers

I know Cincinnati fans would love to play Kentucky in football and basketball. We could sell out the US Bank arena at 17,500 each year for a basketball game and sell out Paul Brown Stadium at 67,000 each year for a football game. So get with it UK fans. Tell your AD you want to see UK in Cincinnati vs the Bearcats. It would be good for everyone even if UK would routinely lose both games. So if Coach Cal wants to play Cincinnati at neutral cites as the article states, then lets do it.
