    I picked Kentucky. But it wouldn't bug me if either of the teams won, why all the Cal hate?

    Probably because of his vacated final fours, his one and done recruiting, and how he handled the scholarships of players who were already at Kentucky when he took over 3 years ago.

    Vacated final fours - both bunk.
    Camby gets an agent - What does Cal have to gain from this?
    Derrick Rose has the NCAA clear him 3 times then pulls that shit. Give me a break.

    One and done recruiting? - HA! What team/school DIDN'T recruit the same kids and what team WOULDN'T play any of them? Dumb.

    How he handled the scholarship players when he arrived? He gave most of them a choice - stay and not play or leave. Others he let go. I don't blame him.


    He does more for this community, with both money and his time, that has nothing to do with basketball than you could imagine.

    I like him and I love hanging banner number 8. :clap:

    Coach Cal is incredible coach. Other teams and the media just hate him for no apparent reason. When your on top, haters are gonna hate. He has persevered through all the shit to come out on top over and over again. Hands down te best coach of the last decade and probably will be for the next one too.

    Yawn, are you drinking Bobby Knights kool aid or what?

    UMass = While a Final Four banner still hangs from the rafters of the Mullins Center in defiance of the NCAA's ruling, the appearance is marked with an asterisk in official record books, even though it was noted that there was absolutely no institutional wrongdoing. Calipari faced NO NCAA action or was he even cited in the investigation. Once again ... what did Cal gain from Camby accepting 28k from an agent? He left the program and UMass went out and hired Bruiser Flint to replace him. Other than UMass hiring a bad coach how did Cal leave them in a bad way? :wtf:

    My favorite part. Feeling a bit quilty Camby? "Camby eventually repaid the school the $151,000 in lost Final Four revenue that came as a result of the NCAA's ruling"

    Memphis = Once again the NCAA clearing house said Rose was eligible to play and so like any other coach in the world he played him. From the committee its self:

    “No allegations were made against the coach, so there were no findings against the coach,” said Paul Dee, chairman of the N.C.A.A. Committee on Infractions."


    He wins by any means necessary? You mean by recruiting the best talent and turning them into millionaires. You're right...any means necessary. :thumbsup:

    What I was referencing was best coach this decade and next as well and it is called institutional control, he was the head coach and two good teams does not make you the next John Wooden or Bobby Knight, I don't care that his players come for a year and leave, that is the system that has been built and he is adhering to those rules so far.

    The fab five also had two good teams and the coach was not found to have any wrong doing he was not is not the next wooden either

    The fab five? Yeah, the coach was not implicated but the players were. In another ten years John Calipari will still be on top. He is the most consistent coach out there. He is hands down the best recruiter, that cannot even be argued. Whereever he goes talent will follow him. He still has a lot of time as a coach ahead of him, and he is on the fastest pace to career wins than anybody else that is still coaching. His record of producing NBA stars is unrefutable. Even Bob Knight and Coach K can't claim the amount of superstardom he has produced. Don't hate the player, hate the game man!

    Bob Knight and Coach K do not recruit one and done players. Bob Knight never had a player leave after 1 year, and Rivers is going to be the 2nd ever to leave after 1 year at Duke.

    Bob Knight was a terrible recruiter. His one shining glory, Isiah Thomas, couldn't wait to leave Indiana while he was coaching. Duke isn't Kentucky, you guys got to recognize that. Kids go to Duke for an education and to play sports, kids go to Kentucky mainly to play basketball. Who cares about one and done,....you wouldn't do it? Please, everyone knows that if any of you all were given the money to go to the pros they would take the money,...its the smart thing to do. I agree with I-35. The only argument people have with Coach Cal is that he only produces "one and done" players. But really, who cares, he can do it year in and year out while every other coach is stuck with their d*** in their hand wishing they could recruit like him.
