Big Blue Linkapalooza: Calipari Rehab Tour Edition

Coach Cal getting some love today. And hate. In other news, the sun came up this morning.

All this sudden changing of minds and scratching of heads about John Calipari is probably to be expected.  A month ago, all his detractors could could point to the fact that Calipari was, according to conventional wisdom (and Dickie V.) unable to get to college basketball's last weekend having to replace large parts of his roster with freshmen every year.  That conventional wisdom now looks a little more like a form of wishful thinking than anything else.

With all that said, the big star of the media so far this week has not been Cal, but Josh Harrellson and DeAndre Liggins. What happened to Darius Miller is anyone's guess, since his intangibles were and shooting were just as critical to winning both games last weekend, and he assisted on both the late baskets, the one to Brandon Knight and the one to DeAndre Liggins, that sealed the deal against the North Carolina Tar Heels.

I suppose it's more about the huge distance between expectations and reality that went with Harrellson and Liggins.  Miller is widely perceived by Kentucky fans to have underachieved somewhat this season, although I think that characterization is completely unfair.  The reality is, Kentucky fans set our expectations for him a bit too high, but right now, I would say that he has at least reached the level of which we all thought he was capable.
