Whether or not Kentucky or Louisville fans want to admit it, John Calipari and Rick Pitino are one in the same when it comes to coaching up talent. Both are excellent motivators and have a signature weapon that they utilize (Calipari=DDMO, Pitino=full court pressure defense). However, the one area that they lack is game management. If its a three point game with a minute to go, you can almost start to bet money on the opposing team.
Think about it, the only UK team besides last year's team that had individual talent from top to bottom was the 1996 National Championship team. With the way Cal recruits, I don't know if we will ever have an opportunity to see that because it will depend heavily on defections. Next years team could possibly do it but I think we will lose three from this years team (Knight, Jones, and Lamb).
