    Where is Calipari? Is he still at UK. Keep in mind, had Rick stayed at UK, he would entering his 29th season. That's probably not likely. No coach asides from Rupp spent more than 12 seasons at UK. BUt just for fun, lets say Rick is still at UK. Or.....He stays 15 seasons, placing him leaving UK 2005. So , with that time frame, does Cal still find his way to UK-----Or is he somewhere else?

    Cal has stated many times that UK was the job he worked his whole career to get
    so i would say there is a good chance of it, if Donovan did not take the job

    IMHO, Donovan would have been the next coach at UK with the blessings and support of Pitino

    I think he moves on from Memphis. Nba? Possibly or maybe even UCLA before Alford

    UK would be on probation and Pitino would have left the school in shame like he did at Louisville. So glad he went to Louisville. He was at Louisville for 16 years and 0 championships and left them as the laughing stock of college basketball.

    IMHO, I think (if he got to do it all over again), Pitino would still be coaching at UK and UK would still be employing him. Calipari would still be saying how he'd really like to coach at UK.

    Kentucky would be on probation instead of Louisville.

    Old enough to know you and Zipp are fans of the biggest cheaters in college basketball history. The only school to ever have to vacate a title due to providing prostitutes to 16 year old recruits and then be caught on tape paying recruits while on probation.Not a good look HR.

    The mental development is roughly the same.
