Coach Cal Visits The Dan Patrick Show . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (Need I Say More)

Ex University of Memphis and current Kentucky Head Basketball Coach John Calipari has a new book to promote, so of course he was making his media rounds to talk about it (which he didn’t talk about it) earlier this week and one of those stops included The Dan Patrick Show (luckily). Dan is not known for throwing any softballs to his guest during interviews, preferring to keep the show as real as possible and on Wednesday he pulled no punches when speaking with Coach Cal.

 After some small talk to begin with, Dan and Calipari discuss the numerous allegations against the veteran coach in regards to the recruitment of Terrence Jones, who originally made a verbal commitment to attend the University of Washington but soon after changed that commitment to Kentucky after speaking with the coach. According to media reports on the situation, it is rather tough to determine who called who, but with Calipari’s reputation to get what he wants at any cost, the situation clearly has rubbed some coaches and administrators the wrong way.

After with speaking on that subject Dan ended the conversation with Coach Cal asking him “how painful (is it) when you open up that NCAA book and see vacant with the UMass Final Four and the Memphis Final Four” Click here to hear Calipari’s answer to Dan Patrick’s question.
