Calipari to Kentucky

http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/news/story?id=4031573

Not sure what to do think of this.  I guess the money was too much to pass by, but while Kentucky's tradition is no doubt richer, I don't see how UK is better than Memphis' basketball program right now.  Then again, maybe he just wanted a challenge.

At least it seems like Calipari is doing this much better than how Rich Rod left West Virginia, but still, Memphis will feel the hit.  Top recruited players may not come, and players might elect to jump early.  I'm sure it's a bummer for Memphis fans.

I kind of think Kentucky is not an enviable job because it comes with very high (maybe unrealistic) expectations in such a short time, and if they are not met the fans go crazy.  But Calipari is a great coach and I'm curious to see what he can do.

Texas fans, if you don't appreciate Rick Barnes, you're lost.  Be thankful he has stayed so long and has built Texas basketball to a power.
