Insight into why Cal left????
This is a quote Cal gave to the Kentucky media yesterday. The entire article is also linked.

"My time will be spent on recruiting and coaching," he said. "The greatest thing about being here is I can do that. I don't have to fund-raise. Get this one: I don't have to sell tickets. Can you imagine?"

Well, that's an OBVIOUS reference to Memphis. Sorry we were such a headache for you, Cal! 01-wingedeagle

He even said that he envisioned Justin Timberlake at the Commonwealth for a Kensucky b-ball game.

I think he has forgotten that Memphis is Justin Timberlake's team.

I'm thinking the Kentucky job will still come with plenty of PR responsibilities. Plus, I don't think ticket sales were a problem the past few years. He helped build Memphis to that point. I give him credit for that. But I know next season would've been full of hard sell outs. I plan on being in the stands for every game next year anyway. Go Tigers.

yea, I'm sorry that his nine years here were such a burden for him. if that is the case, perhaps he should feel free to stay out of the city from now on instead of coming to "visit" every week or so. we wouldn't want to make his life any worse than it already is.

jeez, that dude is a joke.

Ok, thanks for posting, but I swear this is absolutely THE LAST link I ever click with anything to do with our former coach. Not only did he disrespect our program the way he left it for dead, but now the insults are flying. I'm done with him.

If JT shows up at a Kentucky game he must be disowned. Don't know who our new celeb fan would be. Maybe Jerry Lawler?
