Kentucky Basketball: John Calipari and the Recruiting Tweet of the Year

Via KSR:

Even opponents who hate Coach Cal are applauding, and rightly so. I guarantee you a significant number of college coaches are plotting some way to make this an NCAA violation, because Calipari is just way too good for them, and they know it.

I just have no words for the power of this one single line. It is exactly what Coach Cal meant when he made his famous comment that the NBA draft where all five UK players were taken was the best day in school history, outraging many old-time Kentucky fans and drawing razzies from some in the media.

A lot of people scoffed about that comment, but you know what? I think he just might have been right, after all.
