Bluegrass Madness --commentary

Calipari is getting a lot more than just a talented team

By Mike Forster

  So, the University of Kentucky has signed John Calipari to lead its basketball program.

Calipari exits Memphis, a school he led to the final game of last year’s NCAA tournament.

I hope he understands what he’s getting himself into.

Along with a gifted bunch of athletes, a fat contract and world class facilities, Calipari also inherits a fan base that makes manic actor/comedian Robin Williams seem deliberate by comparison.

Wildcat hoops fans revel in the art of fanaticism the way Michelangelo worked in marble or Monet in oils.
