    Calipari is so overrated. He's one of the best, but he doesn't desrve this Saban-esque worshipping by the media imo tbh

    Calipari gets "Saban-esque" worshipping from the media? That's news to me.

    Yeah, Cal doesn't get near as much praise as Saban.

    The media talks about Cal as one of the best college basketball coaches in the game today. The media talks about Saban as one of the best college football coaches of all time. There's a slight difference there.

    It was such a bummer. My understanding is nothing actually touched down but the sirens were going off for around 2 hours. They had the warning scrolling at the top and then right at the end of the game, they cut to a black screen with a guy talking. Other channels didn't have a screen just of their weatherman or a black screen. I kept thinking it would come back. Came back just in time to see them shake hands.

    I'm also not even sure why you're bringing Cal up. It's not like his coaching last night lost them the game.

    I was actually pretty impressed that he had this team on the brink of a Final Four with how they were looking at the end of January, into February.

    Cal did a phenomenal job with this team

    What just bugs me about Cal is he always seems to be coming up with excuses... last night it was the refs trying to foul out his whole team (even though no one fouled out).. before it was always the "remember, these are freshman" line when he has the 3 best freshman in the country, all future lottery picks and acts as if that is some sort of burden.

    Hate seeing a coach protecting his players

    He says the bolded because it's a fact. The fact that they're the three best freshmen in the country is literally irrelevant.

    Re: **NCAA Basketball Thread**

    I think Calipari is pretty fairly portrayed by most of the media:

    -Phenomenal recruiter
    -the best in the country at marketing and selling himself and Kentucky's brand
    -Great at getting one and done's to buy into the team concept and play unselfishly
    - Has shortcomings as an in game coach but isn't as bad as he's made out to be
    - Fairly questions whether he should have more than 1 title with all the talent he's coached

    Yeah I wish we had more titles but the tournament is incredibly hard to win. Wouldn't trade him for anyone.
