Why Calipari, Kentucky must beat UNC


Lexington Herald-Leader columnist John Clay outlines why John Calipari (above) and the Kentucky Wildcats need to beat North Carolina Saturday in Lexington, Ky., in his column today. In essence, he says games like Saturday's matchup of the No. 5 Wildcats and No. 10 Tar Heels is why Calipari was hired.

The key passage of the column:

"John Calipari was hired to win NCAA championships.

"And to do that, you have to compete with North Carolina.

"Better still, you have to beat Carolina."

Read the full column here.

It doesn't matter if they win, because it will be taken away in a few years.

You got that right 2:01, not to mention we'll be watching the game while sipping from our 2009 National Champ mugs.

And Cal had better beat UNC this year, b/c next year he won't have Wall, Patterson or Cousins.

the interesting thing is this:

Calipari could beat Roy with Uk's players or if they switched teams.

Roy straight up can't coach too well.

ACC is weak this year i think.

'Cuse handed us our tarholes and then Big 10 beat up our conf pretty badly.

I fear the CATS will kill us for years to come.

Yeah, all that bad coaching killed him. He's so bad he was the fastest coach to 500 wins, the fastest coach to 600 wins, and a two-time National Champion.

Who ever says that coach Williams cannot coach is a @#$%. He has 2 titles in 5 years and 7 final 4's. Coach Cal has nothing. Everything he has done has been taken away by the NCAA. The Tar heels have nothing to fear from the UK this season or next.

How do you know you're the BEST program in the country? Easy...when everyone else's National Championship is the game against your team!!! And the only thing UsucK fans need not lose any sleep over is that, when Cal leaves, your program will be in ruins and under investigation or on probation with the NCAA.

OLE' ROY CANT COACH. WTF EVER. I GUESS THATS WHY HE HAS THE BEST ACTIVE WINNING PERCENTAGE OF ANY COACH IN THE COUNTRY (OVER 80%). PLUS UNC HAS BEAT THE "BIGBLUE" BALL NATION THE LAST FEW YEARS. HEAD TO HEAD MEETINGS: UNC 21, BBB 10. NUFF SAID.

UNC's record against KY
21-10
5 straight wins
17 wins out of the last 23 games..WOW
We play in the ACC, the conference that over the past 40 years has dominated college basketball.
KY plays in the SEC...WTF...and you're only 5 wins ahead...WOW

Numbers don't lie you rotten motherfuckers!

pantherheelz said...

We did pass on John Wall because he is a hip hop one and done. He does not fit our team concept. We own Kentucky OWN THEM. Answer this you Kentucky fried dipshits...is the SEC better than the ACC. NO THEY ARE NOT. We play dook, NC State, Wake Forest, and Maryland twice a year for the past 40 years. Who does KY play??? Miss St or Ole Miss, or Georgia??? Are you kidding me. We are the Standard and we will surpass KY for Titles in the next 10 years. Plus we didn't cheat to win ours. You should fire Calipari now, you will be on probation in no time. He is a fucking cheater...FACT

WOOOOOOOOOOOO Suck one pussy cats!

Roy Williams 8 time National Coach of the Year, 2 Rings.

Nuff Said

Some of the posts from these imbred sheep fuckers are amazing!!!!

Calipari has how many recruiting violations?????

pantherheelz said...

calipari got bitched down by John Chaney........LMAO

pantherheelz said...

NC State??????
I dont't know which is more unbeliveable, the fact that someone thinks they will beat the Heels, or the fact that there are still Wolfpack fans!!! WOW WTF

p.s. your team hasn't been relevant since Reagan was in the whitehouse....FACT

Check the record books. The Heels have OWNED Kentucky. Kentucky will probably drag out that has been Judd girl to wave her store bought pom poms again.

NC State. They beat Carolina in football so that one win will carry their entire fan base for a whole year. They cherish one win while Carolina has recently won 2 basketball National Championships, gone to 3 bowl games including this year, 4 College World Series, and have several soccer and field hockey titles. So state keep milking that one win. The kool aid man is not getting any better.

I had forgotten the Chaney incident. That was hilarious. If Chaney could have gotten his hands on Mr C he would have killed him. of ciurse Cal would have probably done his own fast break out the back door.

The last time I watched Calapari coach a game was when his team totally blew the NC game to Kansas. What a total choke job that was. Good bench coaching John boy.

Cats are gonna whoop your baby blue asses all over the court Saturday. Whoever said UNC didn't pass on John Wall is right...Wall CHOSE UK OVER UNC. Ole Roy was pulling some shenanigans at KU so don't call the kettle black, pot.

Kentucky is for rednecks said...

has anyone checked out Kensucky's schedule/results this year so far? Not too impressive -- near losses to Miami of Ohio and Stanford and the rest were wins over teams that the UNC JV team could blow out.

UK fans -- be prepared to eat fried calapari on sat, cause your team is gonna get burned by Roy and the Heels.

A short grammar lesson... Did you know the NC Blue is past tense for NC Blows?

Go 'Pack

I wasnt afraid of Uk until they got Calipari, but now I think he is going to hand our asses to us every year we play them. Hate to say it guys, but UK is good and its gonna stay that way. We are good too, but just not as good as them. Im just calling it how I see it.

uk will get rolled by unc due to uk being a bunch of "classless niggers"

Seriously, all Kentucky fans, we don't even worry about playing you any more. We've owned you over the last 10 years...and it's usually not even a close game. I'm kind of glad you have a decent team so that it's actually interesting to watch this year. No matter what happens we got the rings. Welcome back to being a relevant team again.

I would expect a comment like that from someone in North Carolina. And you want to talk about "Class". You sir are lower than a snakes belly in a wagon rut. May you rot in "Hell" with the rest of your prejudice brothers and sisters of the Klan. Why kids go to north carolina is beyond me. What a bunch of backwoods country f^^ks.

Yea Kentucky is the armpit of the us, the nicest part is Louisville and thats not saying much.....UNC is gonna roll you dumb fuckers, and dont forget to put your teeth in tonight you and your nigger wife

Well, UK beat UNC despite poor officials and having inexperienced players. 'Nuff said. (Also note the absence of profanities and insults in this post, I hope others follow my lead.)

Wow.

As an impartial observer, I'm embarrassed by the lack of class shown above by several UNC "fans." Does this site even monitor the comments section?

Grow up, folks.
