Rick Pitino says he would vote for John Calipari for Coach of the Year


Yesterday, John Calipari was snubbed by the US Basketball Writers Association, who voted Virginia’s Tony Bennett their Coach of the Year despite the fact that Kentucky is 36-0 and still in the tournament, whereas the Cavaliers went 30-4 and lost in the second round. The snub was widely panned by everyone who didn’t vote for the award, and this afternoon, even Rick Pitino said Calipari has his vote.

“Who would I vote for? I think John Calipari has done a brilliant job. I’d put him at the top. I think I’d give it to John,” Pitino said at his press conference today. “I think that when you’re undefeated and nobody’s beaten you, it’s clear cut who’s Coach of the Year right now.

Finally, something we can agree on.

    Off topic but important to some…The Radisson Hotel across the street from the Q finally has open rooms available, I just booked mine. Plus is easy walk to and from the game….Only negative is you don’t really save on parking as they charge a $22 per day valet fee…Still avoid all the traffic with a short walk to rest comfy in your room.

    What’s there to think about? Look at who’s above you every college coach/media member in the country?

    Look who has social media figured out….
    Look who ESPN has on every chance they get………

    Where was the uniformed? Apparently everywhere.

    He is, of course, lying again. He just knows that he can’t publically say anything other than he would vote for Calipari. In an anonymous vote, he would probably vote for himself.
