A marriage made in hell: Slick Calipari's self-promoting crap & R.C. Johnson "dumberer and dumbest" The Big Losers? Any Tiger high fans still standing...4 years in & that's the best Calipari can do?

P.S. Won't someone please tell Mike Rose to quit subsidizing this garbage? It's all too much for a former fan...

Sherm--

Well, from out here, the hoops fans are buying it. They remain impressed with Cal and his recruits. This coming from hardcore Michigan State, Kansas and Xavier fans.

well, they don't haveta drive buy his pink house! (or listen to his excuses on woloshin's show. Talk about painful.) I dislike that guy on so many levels: most of all coaching and his general b.s.

His latest p.r. move? Not playing U. T. in b-ball (which eliminates U.T. from playing Tiger High in football) cause he "wants to play a national schedule" Who is schmucko fooling? His schedule is ncaa lite and this will cost big bucks to not play u.t. in footbal--in addition to pissing off all the fans.


I don't even care really--I'm just amazed at how stupid memphis state is to put up with this guy (and their fans are just as guillible for putting up with both of them johnson & calipari. I guess they deserve what they get.

My favorite quote of Cal's was on the news last night, something to the tune of:
"As long as the U of M is dedicated to developing a winning basketball program I'll be here."
Translation: As long as you are willing to pay my exorbitant salary I'll be here

My dislike for Cal centers on one thing: his abusive nature. Watch Cal on the sidelines of a game. He screams and stamps his feet at everybody, especially his own players - enough to make Bobby Knight blush. As if bellowing at a 19 year-old will help him make a free throw. I realize that the number one trait of all coaches is that they're assholes, but a pat on the back is nice once a year, Cal...

"as long as memphis state is committed to developing a winning basketball program...and I can't get any other better offers, then I'll be here. But believe me, I'll keep trying to better myself elsewhere." Tell it like it is, championship steak cal.

No sarcasm here, but what *should* be happening? Seriously, other than here, everyone is just accepting the Calipari line and is impressed with what Memphis even has (passively shocked would be a better way to put it).

This is gonna sound retarded, but people who want this school, which is so broke it keeps closing down departments and laying people off (thank you, nashville politicians who don't give memphis jack shit and also those thougthful dipshit east tennesseans who have saved our soul from gambling's sins!), to succeed should be giving money to the music & education departments and forget subsidizing the sports sham.

Calipari only recruits thugs & criminals who shouldn't even be in college (even one as easy to get into as U. of M)cause they are too STUPID. Most that he recruits don't end up enrolling (or only stay long enough to get their nba cred. 1 year) & none have graduated.

I would hire Vertais Sails or some other equivalent local high school coach and recruit from the fertile crescent of talent that Arkansas, Ole Miss,& UT have been mining--Memphis--duh. There's plenty o' talent here. Get a coach who let's 'em run (Calipari can't coach out of a wet paper bag--his only claim to fame was recruiting Camby to U. Mass. Truly. Watch him against any good coach with similar talent. He is out-coached every time.) Play a killer schedule and let 'em roll. Worked for 20 years before Calipari showed up--without having to pay that dipshit millions of dollars. What a scam he is running...He's worth about $60,000 a year as a cheezy recruiter & his restaurant sucks too.

One final thought: I saw one of his assistant coaches shove an opposing player last year when he flew into their bench. Only one word for that "coach": classless scumbag. That's the kind of program Calipari runs. Go back home, dude! Oh, yeah, I forgot: he was a total loser in the NBA, no one else in college wants him, and Memphis state is dumping truckloads of money on him. Why leave?

I heard Cal on the radio the other day essentially saying how happy he is now that he can pad the schedule with a bunch of patsies so he doesn't have to go on a late season run just to make the tourney.

Easy on the trash talking on Memphis football. Beating Ole Miss and Louisville is very respectable. My Gators have lost to Ole Miserable two years in a row.

Ain't nobody trashin' West & D'angelo. It's their best year in 25 years! D'angleo is for real.

Anybody got any Liberty Bowl tickets left? I'm looking for something near the press box level on either side.

Thanks for the insight, Sherman, and yes, you make total and complete sense.

I do think the real idiocy remains with people who are buying it (obviously) cos that is the kinda kid U of M is BOUND to get, let's be real. I apologize for snobbing out but it is a broke, city college that cannot compete on so many levels...so how much more disgusting is it to see the millions thrown at Cal...Vitale will remain a loudmouth on his behalf until he croaks, so my optimism for your optimism is low.
