I know the expectations are high, and the bar has been set, and failure is not an option. But geez, talking about this year's UK team and throwing in freshman across the landscape, and then adding the NBA draft in there just doesnt seem to add up to what has happened/or is happening at UK this year.
I have marveled these years that Cal has been at the helm. But this is his chance to do his best coaching job ever. After what has transpired this year, what would all the UK fans think if the 'Cats got hot, found their way into the NCAA tourney, and managed a Sweet Sixteen appearance? It could happen, it aint like they are sub .500. What would you guys think about the season then? I know what I would say........Cal can coach. Everybody knows he can recruit.
If there is a soul out there who doesn't acknowledge the fact that Cal can, and has always proven that he can, coach - and I'm not at all suggesting that is what you meant, A.H - then that defies comprehension.
