Video: Memphis Meteorologist Tees Off On John Calipari, Calls Him A Snake Oil Salesman

John Calipari coached at Memphis for nine seasons, and almost led the Tigers to a national title in 2008. But given the way he left the program, and the fact that the school had to vacate all 38 victories from that year, he isn’t the most well-liked man in town. After Sunday’s Hall of Fame interview debacle, that fact likely won’t change for some time. Calipari, during an interview...

The Last Whistle for Kentucky

Past performance is not always indicative of future results. It’s a pretty simple concept. Still, it’s hard to think that way when you’ve experienced the same thing over and over again. For 38 games, we all played the dogs to John Calipari’s Dr. Pavlov. We were conditioned to salivate upon hearing phrases like “nine McDonalds All-Americans” and “platoon system....
