    Calipari and Calhoun

    How can anyone root for either of these guys tonight? They're both notorious cheaters in college basketball.

    Quite contrary to the first game today with two very classy head coaches.

    I hate Calipari, he's everything that's wrong with NCAA basketball.

    Re: Calipari and Calhoun

    Not coach-related, but does Harrelson remind anyone else of Bill Laimbeer, and Kemba remind anyone of Mike Taylor??

    Yeah, I've heard the Bill Laimbeer comparison about Harrelson. He's the classic, "I hate this guy but I'd love him if he was playing for my team" type player. He's got a little Jared Homan in him, that's for sure.

    He's not nearly as annoying or as bad a cheap shot artist as Laimbeer. Man I hated watching that guy.

    Re: Calipari and Calhoun

    I enjoy watching Harrelson and this Kentucky team. I really hate UConn.

    For me, it's easy to root for Kentucky tonight, and then really easy to root for Butler to deny Coach Cal the national title.

    I agree, I dont really hate Uk besides Coach Calipari. I despise Uconn and Calhoun. I will root for Butler no matter who wins tonight.

    Exactly. Yet the media and talking heads on TV are enamored with him and his snake charmer personality. I can't stand the guy and don't want Kentucky to win it all because it will be a Cal lovefest

    I'm not anyone was ready to see this development.

    For our part in it, we have definitely earned ourselves some coupons. And a bunch of credits.

    Yes, Dickie V just foams from the mouth when talking about Calipari. It's disgusting. The guy does nothing but cheat everywhere he goes, but Dickie V has nothing but great things to say about him.

    Reminds me of Lou Holtz. Why ESPN hired that idiot is beyond me. He can't speak clearly, and he's cheated everywhere he's coached... but hey.. let's hire him and adore him! Stupid.

    Re: Calipari and Calhoun

    Both are great coaches for sure. For me Calhoun is much more likable....he's had a few issues here lately, but he's been there for 25 years. I admire anyone that can stay the course that long and be successfull. I've seen alot of people dog him for the few issues he's had recently, but seriously over that many years, idk that its surprising that at some point something would slip through the cracks.
