UK now has its own section in the Hall of Fame

@CoachCalDotCom

The fun’s about to begin in Springfield, Massachusetts, and several local media have made their way up to the Hall of Fame to cover John Calipari and Louie Dampier’s big day. Check out CoachCal.com’s picture of UK’s new display, which rotates pics of Kentucky greats on the┬áright side of the screen, and features Anthony Davis and Dan Issel’s jerseys, along with what appears to be one of Calipari’s suits and a replica of one of the championship trophies. (Anthony’s jersey being included is a pretty big hint that he’ll be in the Hall of Fame himself one day.)

Cal and Dampier’s pictures are already on display:

As is Calipari’s HOF trading card:

Here’s the stage where Cal and Dampier will speak in just a little bit:

This has been stuck in my head all day, which means it’ll now be stuck in yours:

    About time UK got some respect at the HOF. I was there right after Anthony Davis was MVP and it looked like a shrine to the old Big East conference. Very little recognition for college basketball’s winnings team.

    I hear Jerry Stackhouse and Rasheed Wallace are playing for the UNC Alum team. Are they serious? Maybe we should find a couple of their contemporaries to go up against those guys, I wonder what Cliff Hagan and Dan Issel are up to?

    If the display is a KY display (not specifically a Calipari one), maybe the suit might be a reference to Rupp. He always wore a brown suit and I remember him even being referred to sometimes as “the man in the brown suit”.
