Coach Cal Wins Barefoot Award



We all know that Cal’s a pretty good guy, but it’s always rewarding to see other people noticing it, too.  Coach “raised over $25,000 for Samaritan’s Feet, which provided 1,600 pairs of shoes [to children worldwide],” according to

Since becoming the coach at Kentucky, Cal has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for relief efforts in Haiti and New York, and can now add the Samaritan’s Feet award to that already prestigious list.  He’d be the last to list all of these things and ask for credit for them, but that’s where we come in.

BCG taught us that being Kentucky’s coach is about more than winning and losing.  It’s about being an ambassador for the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and using your position for a greater good.  Not only has Cal been a championship-level coach competitively, but he’s been a fantastic steward for the reputation of the school, and the state.  He doesn’t just “do well,” he does good.

Proud to call him “Coach” today.

    Cal is the best coach for this program, he really uderstands what the job is all about! Rupp, followed by the good steward of the program Hall then train wreck “for UK” sutton. Pitino followed by the good steward “that stayed a little too long” Tubby. Then the catastrophe that was BCG! No other coach in the country could have come to UK and accomplished what Cal has! Point blank period! The PROGRAM that is, the all time best in the game has THE best coach in the game for the time we are in!
