Oh what a difference a year makes. Last year around this time, Kentucky coach John Calipari was in the midst of his first NCAA title run. This year, he’s hanging out at the Carnegie Deli with eating champion Kobayashi.
Calipari is actually on a recruiting trip, but this is still pretty funny. Maybe he’s actually enjoying his time off?

BEST OF MAXIM
Just one year ago, the Kentucky Wildcats were getting set to begin a six-game winning streak that would culminate with the school’s eighth National Title. Today, they are no longer contestants in the NIT, after being beaten by Robert Morris. Not going to call it a huge upset, as Kentucky wasn’t a very good team to begin with, but we will go as far as to say that it helps support...
THAT DIDN'T WORK OUT
Papa Johns and their pizza promotion must not have gotten the memo that the Kentucky Wildcats weren't joining the 2013 NCAA Tournament field.
Short of making the Eastern Conference Finals, it is hard to imagine Brooklyn Nets interim head coach P.J. Carlesimo lasting past this season.
At the same time, John Calipari's Kentucky Wildcats did not make the NCAA Tournament and are even coming off a loss to Robert Morris in the first round of the NIT.
Seemingly, these are two coaches who will be home earlier than...
Clearly, the ad wizards over at Papa John's are going to regret their decision of putting Kentucky head coach John Calipari as one of the faces on their NCAA tournament promotion ad campaign.
Since Kentucky didn't make the tournament this and then got subsequently shocked by Robert Morris in the NIT last night.
Check out the below photo from the e-mail campaign that...
John Calipari said Kentucky's lack of depth forced him to accept things he wouldn't normally do.
Nothing drives home a lesson like the sting of embarrassment.
John Calipari knows it. On Tuesday night in his hometown of Moon Township, Pa., Calipari stood watch as 3,500 fans the largest crowd to fill the Sewall Center of Robert Morris University in years stormed the floor to celebrate his Wildcats' 59-57 defeat in the opening round of the National Invitational Tournament...
Get your John Calipari jabs in now while you still can. Kentucky will be back.
Yesterday Prestonwood High School (Dallas, Tx.) forward Julius Randle committed to the Wildcats, joining what some are calling the greatest college basketball recruiting class of all time. Indeed, Kentucky now has commitments from six of the top 20 players in the country according to most rankings...
Five-star Texas power forward Julius Randle announced on ESPNU today that he will join John Calipari's top-ranked recruiting class at Kentucky, giving the Wildcats the No. 1 player at four out of five positions in the Class of 2013.
The nation's No. 2 overall recruit Julius Randle has pledged his commitment to John Calipari and the Kentucky Wildcats.
It was bad enough when the Kentucky Wildcats lost their star player. It was even worse when they were left out of the NCAA tournament and relegated to the NIT. For defending national champions it likes getting kicked where it hurts and being told you have to smile about it.
Could it get any worse for a team that is accustomed to being in the running for the national championship...
The roller coaster of a season for the Kentucky Wildcats came to a final free-fall in Moon Township, PA on Wednesday. The Colonials lead for most of the game, while the ‘Cats looked disinterested. Robert Morris jumped out to a 10-0 lead to begin the game, and never looked back. Despite numerous Calipari timeouts, the ‘Cats rarely showed any signs of life. The one guy that was...
