Coach Cal needs your help

Big Blue Nation, we have another one. And this one is important.

Calipari is a participant in the 2012 Infiniti Coaches’ Charity Challenge, an online poll that puts college basketball coaches against each other for charity. The coach who receives the most votes between January 18 and March 8 will win $100,000, which will be awarded to his selected charity.

Calipari is competing for Samaritan’s Feet, an organization he has been very involved with in the past. If you recall, last year’s team stopped in Detroit on their way to Windsor and washed feet for the charity.

He is currently in second place in the East region — behind Bob Huggins of all people — but I think that can change with your help.

This is something Calipari really wants to win and he can’t do it without you.

VOTE

************ UPDATE ************

Calipari is now ahead of Huggins and leading the East region. Keep it up, BBN!!!

    I had no idea this is why Royce White didn’t come to UK. It’s kinda sad, but I’m happy he was eventually able to overcome his fear. Would have loved to have seen him in UK blue.

    I’m not 100% positive, but I think of you clear your cookies (on your computer) after you vote you can go back and vote again. Otherwise, it says you have to wait 24 hrs.

    There is a guy on Washington State named Faisal Aden, and I thought the guy was saying Basil Hayden the whole time. And I was like, “Wow! I can’t believe somebody named their child after UK’s first All-American, and that he now plays basketball for WSU.” But that wasn’t his name, it just sounded like it. Although I think it’s pronounced Bazz-ul, but it’s spelled like the herb which is pronounced Bay-zul and I always said it like that, until I heard someone say it correctly. Which in retrospect, it makes sense that it’s pronounced that way. Anyway I though the whole thing was interesting.
