I think it is obvious that Calipari would get better recruits at uk because it is such a bigger program than Memphis or Umass. Same with Alabama being a bigger program than Michigan State so it is easier for Saban to get players
But of all the years with Calipari that is the only one that didn't meet or exceed expectations.
2011- Final Four as a 4 seed
2012-National Champions as a 1 seed
2013-were starting to find a groove and then their best player in Noel tears his ACL
2014-Runners-up as an 8 seed
And even in that case they still made the elite 8. With Calipari they don't have any bad upsets like Duke or Kansas constantly do and while those teams don't have as much freshman influence as Kentucky usually does, they do have some.
This is what I mean without trying to be too personal. Other coaches than Calipari have tried to follow his freshman strategy but none have really come close to his success. Also look at all the players he has put in to the NBA with none of his recruits really being busts. He has even got Darius Miller and Josh Harrelson drafted which are probably his best examples.
Please don't hurt me
Its not for like 90% of people here
Hahaha yes I can understand that sentiment but I have been an Ohio State fan my whole life but grew up in Kentucky and I could not afford Ohio State. So now that I go to UK I root for them too. I also root for Ohio state basketball and sadly it means I root for UK football too. I also root for the Bengals and Reds in pro sports so I feel like that has to help my case a little right? Right?
Speaking of Cousins, it is a joke that he is not part of the all star game
Just started following it after the World Cup. I root for Liverpool in the Premier League but Barcelona is my favorite overall.
I was at the game last night and I can assure you there was not an SEC chant
Auburn went undefeated the year they had Cam Newton...
Ha I get it. And I still root for ohio state in basketball and so tonight I pretty much hope no team wins but since that can't happen I'm forced to root for Michigan.
Rooting for Michigan because I am a bigger Kentucky fan than I am ohio state in basketball and Louisville is the equivalent to Michigan for us.
Who does all the photo-shopping here it is always great.
Kansas down at half!
