Mentioning Calipari in memphis is like fishing in a tub full of piranhas and using your hand as bait.

RE: Calkins - Cal Coming Back
How many remember that he was damaged goods at the time he took the Tigers job.

A couple failed NBA jobs and a run in with the NCAA at UMass. NO ONE was looking to hire him as a coach. And he was working as TV commentator.

The Memphis job put him where he is today. And without William Wesley he would not have gotten the UK job at all.

16-13 regular season the year before WWW started hand delivering players to the program. 2 NCAA appearances in five years before WWW. ZERO conference titles.

Cal was a wild roller coaster ride that ended in a crash at the end.

And yes i was once on local tv news saying what a great guy he was.


I was wrong.

WWW helped deliver Dejuan Wagner and Calipari won more post season games that 16-13 year (6), the worst year of his tenure here, than Pastner did in any year he coached at Memphis.

Sure, if it's your grandad or pastor. Sure.

But it's the corrupt world of DI CBB athletics, a multi-billion dollar industry, where winning takes precedence over everything.

All that new age mumbo jumbo is left at the door.
