Commenting on his son's departure from UK and his loss of scholarship James Pilgrim took the philosophical point of view. Much has been written -- and much more will be -- about the machinations required to address the Cats' scholarship situation. Although Mr. Pilgrim appears to be more sanguine than, I would suppose, he really is, I do think his approach is the most pragmatic and beneficial to his son. My question from the moment of Matthew Pilgrim's being offered a scholarship was, why on earth was UK -- already suffering from the effects of years of recruiting underachievement -- awarding a spot to a transfer from a program of less-than-mid-major status? All the glowing reports of his "beastliness", physicality, aggressive play, etc., weren't enough to eliminate my skepticism. IMO, Calipari was put in a no-win situation by the recruiting mistakes of his predecessors and he has made the best of a problematic situation.
