Where’s the Love for Coach Cal?

john-calipari

With the season winding down, everyone is starting to come out with their National Coach of the Year ‘finalists.’ Seth Davis came out with his 10 today and Mike DeCourcy came out with his list of 13 coaches that deserve a shot for Coach of the Year.

Neither of them had John Calipari. DeCourcy had Coach K. Huh?

Both Davis and DeCourcy give reasons such as ‘losing starters’ and ‘injuries’ to justify their nominations of some coaches, including K. Now, I’m just trying to remember, but did Kentucky lose anyone from last year’s team? Anyone important get injured this season?

Should Calipari win Coach of the Year? No. But, leaving him out of the conversation is plain stupid at this point.

    The team was ranked preseason #1. It now has 7 losses (and the large majority of those losses came when everyone was healthy).

    Issues:
    – Skal has floundered.
    – Poythress continued to show promise while continuing to show symptoms if Disappearius Miller syndrome (a debilitating disease).
    – Marcus Lee unwilling to step up and be anything other than a role player (free throw shooting major liability)
    – Briscoe (I think Jerry Tipton got into his head with the ‘dimmest light’ comment late last week and this is why Briscoe decided to take 5 jump shots he normally doesn’t take, also free throw is a major liability).

    Positives:
    – Derek Willis arrives (as a defensive player and rebounder).
    – Humphries grows into a 15+ minute player (and maybe had his arrival game against TA&M).
    – Ulis being even that much more of a team leader.
    – Murray took a ‘while’ to adjust to the system (Murray couldn’t get the dribble drive so Cal yanked it).

    ‘Coach of the Year’… not this year.

      And yet with all the issues listed above, lead an improved SEC and possibly a deep tournament run. Not a bad coaching job!

      Skal needs good coaching. Look how good Towns got when he got a good coach.

      NCAA should quit wasting time on Louisville and go after North Carolina.

      Pitino is good for the game. I hope he stays at Louisville.

      You obviously didn’t read leon’s comments I posted.

      Unless, you are taking up for the dude?

      While Leon Singleton does have some views I do not agree with…like Pitino coming back to UK, and Cal not being a good coach. I think it is just weird that UK Big Board Update copies and saves other people’s comments for later use. I’m not really sure why it is so important to do that.

      I don’t save anything – its called Google, and you can search.

      It takes about 2 seconds to do.

    13-7 over the last 20 games with some horrendous losses in there and some of you think he should be considered NCOY???

    Uhhh.

      He’s 8-1 vs your coach – what does that say about Pitino?

      Enjoy probation, troll.

      You didn’t read the article.
      You should probably read the article.
      Hold on.
      Can you read?
      If you can’t, I understand.
      If you can, are you able to comprehend what is written?

      UK big Board— considering how you smart homers all said this would be an epic bad year for the 21 ft of suck….I assume you think Pitino should be coach of the year?

      Considering they can’t even play in the tournament, yeah, I say its an epic bad year.

      Have fun with your coaching search next year.

    I’m sure Cal is distraught being left out of a Davis/DeCourcey opinion article.
