I'm sure most of us here have read Vitale's take on the Calipari-Memphis-SAT-Rose saga (if not, it's here) where he contends that Calipari is getting unfair treatment by the media. While I know that Dicky V. is a legendary bandwagon jumper and has said some pretty hurtful things towards UK basketball in general- and the fans specifically- in the past, and very well may do it again, I think that articles such as this should prevent us for dismissing him out of hand. We NEED a voice- a BIG voice- to counter the Fordes and Tiptons of the world. Sure, we know they are biased and can't be trusted, but we need a standard bearer to defend our Coach at this time, and he has voluntarily taken up that mantle. Others write negative UK articles because they know they will get hits. Let's show that those who "get it" (ie-Vitale) stand to gain just as much (and more) by supporting us. For all the things he may have said, Vitale has ALWAYS referred to UK as a legendary program and I think that he has hit the nail on the head with this article.
