Calipari to Kentucky

Big news of the day besides the Final Four is reports that former UMass coach John Calipari will leave Memphis and for the University of Kentucky. Talk about everything coming full circle, he is about to take the job at the school that derailed one of his national championship runs. Keep in mind that there has always been talk that Rick Pitino, the former Kentucky coach that one that championship, would eventually coach at UMass, his alma mater. Wouldn't it be ironic if those two met in an NCAA Tournament game in the future. Then again, I don't think the media, which he included in his "fellowship of the miserable" would ever welcome him warmly back to New England. As we know he won't have Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish waiting for him in the gym on the first day of practice.
