Rivalry War is Hell: Returning Louisville Fire, and Some Unrelated Notes

Okay, we didn't fire the first shot, but ...

I guess whoever owns our condo must not be a Louisville fan.

Pilot to bombardier... pilot to bombardier... Target sighted. Prepare to release in 5...4...3...2...1...

Some Big Blue Nation news after the jump.

Jerry Tipton has this up on his blog today:

UK Coach John Calipari predicted that all six UK players in the 2012 NBA Draft will be selected.
"All six will be drafted," he said. "It’s just a matter of where they’ll be drafted."
Calipari predicted the order of UK players taken will begin with Anthony Davis with the first pick, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Terrence Jones and then in some order: Doron Lamb, Marquis Teague and Darius Miller.

To me, this isn't really news. Nobody seriously expects for Darius Miller or Doron Lamb to go undrafted, that would make no sense at all. What the article, and Calipari, do not say is that all six will go in the first round. That could happen, of course, but it also might not.

Calipari is still talking the Indiana Hoosiers series, believe it or not. He had these comments, among several others, as reported by Larry Vaught:

Calipari also didn’t buy Indiana’s theory that neutral site games in Indianapolis would be unfair to students who wanted to attend the game.

"They are only two hours away. Are they that poor that they cannot get to the building? Our students are going. They would get up there," Calipari said.

Absolutely right. I have never bought the reasoning for not having the games at neutral sites that Indiana has put forth. It's somewhat amazing to me that everyone so uncritically accepts the IU logic, then blasts Calipari's.

Also today, we discover that John Calipari is hosting a "Fantasy Camp" that will set campers back approximately $7,500. Naturally, Calipari critics could not wait to opine:

But I wonder if Dan Wolken knows that Mike Krzyzewski runs a similar camp, according to Daniel J. Martin at NBC Sports:

Is it worth $7,500? If you have a certain credit card affiliation, they’ll be glad to knock off another $1,500. It’s a bargain compared to Coach K’s camp, which will lighten your pockets by $10,000.

Do those jokes write themselves, too, Dan? We're waiting.

I don't know about Coach K's camp, but Calipari's camp goes to benefit his charity, which seems to me to be a very good place for all that money to go to.

Sometimes the Dan Wolkens of the world are just too clever by half.
