After ten years as head coach of the University of Kentucky it saddens me to have to report that after a disappointing loss to Auburn yesterday and failing to win another championship since 2012...the University of Kentucky has decided to let Calipari go. Whether Calipari will go on to another team (UCLA is rumored, in addition to a possible NBA job) or retire remains to be seen. Here is WLEX's coverage of the press conference announcing Calipari's dismissal:

    not a big Kentucky fan, but boy that's really tough to swallow. Not like they suffered through bad seasons. So difficult when one game is all that matters....a bad bounce here, a missed shot there and you're eliminated.

    okay guys, you got me here. Just read that he signed a lifetime contract!

    Wow, guess like Yukon Cornelius would say, they changed their mind! :blush:

    Too bad it's only a joke. Hard to achieve having 2 Final Four appearances wiped out due to NCAA violations. Bobby Knight quote - "We've gotten into this situation where integrity is really lacking and that's why I'm glad I'm not coaching. You see we've got a coach at Kentucky, who put two schools [UMass and Memphis] on probation and he's still coaching. I really don't understand that."

    “I will build a great wall – and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me – and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”

    I just assumed he either molested someone or was buying cars for recruits. I'm sure he is doing that but so far the coverup is still working

    just to clarify, its either cheaters without integrity or an ahole throwing chairs at the players ? :D

    I thought he threw them at the ref. He's another story.

    Not everyone likes their coaches and men like Bobby Knight any more. I would say, actually, the majority do not.

    I think he’s one of the greatest coaches of all time. Bill Parcells and Mike Krzyzewsk would almost certainly agree since both men learned how to lead and coach directly from him. His mockery of the media was the best, he won three national titles spaced far apart (more impressive than one good team, to me) and he forgot more basketball than most will ever know.
