Mike Francesa Hung Up On John Calipari When He Called In To Defend John Calipari After Appearing On The Show As John Calipari
While college players are mulling over unionizing to get money to for meals, management keeps making it rain. University of Kentucky coach John Calipari has signed a seven-year extension worth $52 million, making second to only Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski among NCAA basketball coaches. Calipari took to Twitter to thank everyone (as well he should).

Don’t see why people wouldn’t jump at the chance to send their mom an impersonal, pre-recorded message from a college basketball coach.
1436: Johannes Gutenberg invents printing press, which dramatically affects mankind’s ability to disseminate information.
1996-: John Calipari utilizes Gutenberg’s technology to bring light to the sheltered masses.
2014: Fat old white guys on TV don’t give a shit.
Everybody laugh at Kentucky. They’re the worst preseason No. 1 in… over 30 years. And they thought they were going undefeated.
The Kentucky Wildcats have a problem. No, not losing to Robert Morris – their exclusion from the NCAA Tournament by those damn liberal socialists already harpooned their morale. The problem is, in regular basketball circles, usually draped in positivity. They have too many good players. Or, at least, players worthy of playing time.
No. 25 Kentucky was dealt a swift blow Tuesday night, and it wasn’t just their 69-52 defeat at the hands of No. 7 Florida. Star freshman Nerlens Noel went down, way down, with an ugly leg injury. Watch what made John Calipari “physically sick.”
Say what you want about John Calipari’s recruiting practices, but there is no question that he is a great coach – to mesh a brand new team each season is extremely difficult, and to do it with consistent success is quite impressive. But great coaches come with a side of crazy, and Calipari and his control issues are no exception. Oh, and his heart monitors too.
