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