There is no love affair between John Calipari and Rick Pitino. If Pitino stays at Louisville, the rivalry with UK is going to kick up like never before.
There is one thing the next best choice; Billy Donovan just doesn’t have that Coach C. has. That is the desire too just beat the crap out of Rick Pitino in everything they compete at. It doesn’t matter now whether Coach C. was UK’s first choice (he wasn’t, Billy Donovan was), it only matters that UK gets back to the promise land. You can bet the powers to be from the NCAA, SEC, ESPN, and CBS are jumping for joy on UK getting John Calipari.
