    Calipari has made UK basketball a dominate force.Although everyone knows UK has always been a major player as history speaks for it self.I remember the Joe B Hall days when we had Multiple McDonald All Americans on the team each year.

    The first U.K. Team I remember were Rupp’s Runts and there are only four names I remember off the top of my head and they are – Louie Dampier, Pat Riley, Larry Conley, Tommy Kron. I guess that is because it was near the beginning of my grade school BB career. I remember the unusual name Cotton Nash and loved Cawood Ledford who could bring games to life and there was never any doubt which team he was for. I used to sit in the bedroom in the dark with just my radio and be entertained as if I was at the game.
    Joe B. did a great job following a legend but had to coach against a legend coach from UCLA who was getting players like U.K. is now. I hope Cal ends up with similar results but know this is a different time and era.
