(Bonus points for the movie the title draws from......)Well, we certainly have managed to get ourselves into the limelight this time. We have the scholarly fanatics (of which I partly fall into) who say that we need to be fixing the grade problem, we have the money fanatics who say we are spending too much already, why are we negotiating to give Cal a raise?(thank you Paris) We have the basketball gurus who are offended at the very idea we are messing with recruits after they commit, and we have the NCAA President, the Secretary of Education, and a host of massively intelligent sports media personalities who are ready to have us beheaded to stop the "one and done" phenomena from becoming the next I-Phone.
So I figured let's just open up the phone lines and see where all of this is headed. So here is everyone's engraved invitation to tell us how the University of Kentucky and John Calipari are ruining the world of college basketball. Come one, come all Trolls of the world, give us your tired, sad, downhearted, and broken tales of woe. Make us believe you have discovered the mark of the beast on John Calipari's scalp (more movie reference). Make your case, and prove to us once and for all that there is evidence to support all of these charges of crimes against college basketball and human decency in general.
I dont just want to see snide quips, blurbs, or rhetoric, bring us the evidence, show us the web sites where the smoking guns are hidden. Make us believe that you are more than a group of whining, narcissistic, drones who are on autopilot with your "bring us his head!" speeches, and Hamlet infused monologues. Here is your chance to prove once and for all that we are the evil empire, here to set fire to your monuments of history, to make your idols cringe before our might, and to destroy the world as we now know it.
Come Duke, come Tennessee, come Louisville, North Carolina too. Come Washington, come ESPN, come all before we are through. We open our hearts and minds to your messages of concern. But be warned, come with the facts, or dont come at all......so it is written, so let it be done. (last movie reference, bonus for getting all 3)
