    i love how now the ticket prices for the DR game in the chicken bucket were originally hiked up farther than a karen sypher mini skirt, but now dropped faster than karen sypher “paying” for legal services.

    If it is true that Crum will help coach the UK legends at least Wall, Bledsoe and Cousins will get to learn more in the 2 days Crum has them than they ever did at UK. Those guys have to be happy about that. Cal may learn a thing or 2 about coaching also. Why not ask the best to help.

    56 that’s what happens to old coaches…..the game passes them by. It was Denny two months before that was when Denny came out in public and said he was coaching that team, and Jurich pulled the plug on Denny because Quick Rick was in the market to go to your has been school. Great coaches should get better treatment than that.



  63. Hoss
    11:00 am August 4, 2011 Permalink

    I agree, Ronald. Denny Crum is not only a great coach and an even better human being, he alone represents UL’s basketball relevance in its entirety. Remove Crum from UL’s past, and UL is even less of an afterthought than they currently are.

    I’d be protective of him, too.

    The previous remarks of ‘Eddie C’ do not represent the thoughts of the Eddie Organization. ‘Eddie C’ was fired from our organization due to mental instability.
    Last seen he was walking down I65 against the traffic with a “15 seconds to heaven” red T shirt and mismatched Tennessee orange sweat pants, along with sandals and black socks.

    Cal is a cheater. Yeah, I said it. And apparently I’m not the only one who thinks so. Go ahead and type in “John Calipari is a cheater” and Google Search returns with 3,850 results*. For good measure, replace “John Calipari” with just “Calipari” and you get 5,570 results.

    * For comparison, “Rick Pitino is a cheater” returns slightly over 2,000 results. But, seriously, who’s the bigger cheater?

Ronald your unoriginal and ridiculous, do you know why there are more links calling Cal a cheater? Its because idiots like you work on speculation and no actual facts when you claim he has cheated or is actually cheating.

    No what you did is what you knew you would do, you come over here and call our coach a cheater and then claim that you somehow have won an argument. You people really need to get over this, facts are that there has never been any proof that he has cheated and it burns you all to the core. The other fact that he has owned your coach the past two years.

    Can’t understand all the UlessL fans fussing about Denny participating. They all could not wait to run him out of town when Ricky 3 Stacks became available.

    Ronald, plese catch your breath and wipe away the tears. You can say what you like about Cal, but what cheating has he done at UK? Has the NCAA ever charged him with cheating? He is at UK and doesn’t have to worry about things like Ricky at UL, that is what happens when you reach the Summit. Rick used to be like that, now he is at a second rate program, remembering the good old days.

    98. NCAA cleared Rose to play twice not once twice and that is when he decided to play him. Then after the season the NCAA came back and siad they made it mistake and then the season was vacated. Marcus Camby took money and when Cal found out about it he was the one that notified the NCAA. So yes if a situation like this were to occur and they could not connect Cal to any wrong doing and cleared him (like they did in both above situations) I would say yes I would defend him. If you found out that your coach had an affair and then paid his mistress to have an abortion, would you still be willing to stand behind him and have him represent your university? Oh wait, you mean that actually happened and we don’t have to use a hypothetical situation to try and prove a point.
