Late Night Open Thread: Talk About the Wildcats

Now that John Calipari is set to be announced as the Kentucky basketball coach tomorrow at 9:30 AM, I'm expecting a few night-owls will want to hoot about it.  That's why I'm opening up yet another thread for everyone who doesn't have to be up at 6:00 AM tomorrow to talk all night long if they like.

A few quick news items:

  • UK commit Jon Hood was named Mr. Basketball of Kentucky today.  Congratulations to Jon, I can't wait to see him in Blue and White next year.
  • Fanhouse says that John Calipari will save Kentucky from itself.  I link this only because I think Jay Mariotti is a simpleton, and I want you to read each sneering, condescending word.  Yes, we made this bed a bit, but perhaps, if things go well, this tune will sound like it was written by a musician with a tin ear in a few years.  Schadenfreude can be beautiful.

So I'll leave you with that, and security in the knowledge that tomorrow, we will introduce our 21st basketball coach.  Hopefully, the introduction of the 22nd will be many years from now, after many more banners dangle from the hallowed halls of Rupp Arena.
