Calipari is the worst coach in America


Mar 18, 2022, 7:06 AM

Change my mind.

Every year he has the best team money can buy and he is frequently out in the early rounds of the tournament.

He maybe the worst coach in America ,but would you take him over the guy who can't get our program into the Big Dance?

Coaches don't miss shots and Kentucky pays no more than every other team. One and done teams come and go but that is their choice.

yeah but thats not what he's good at...or was good at.

His skill is finagling the rules and getting payoffs to the ones that matter to get those elite blue chips to Kentucky. But with the NIL, maybe his skill is now obsolete. He may not know how to operate with free and open cheating.

agreed.. they even did a 30/30 on him.. He made

his bones embracing the 1 and done rule at a time when other coaches fought it. He encouraged recruits to come to Kentuck.. stay a year and get to the NBA.. That was his whole basketball scheme.. get the best talent.. win quick.. and get a fresh crop every year.

NIL is at least part of the reason Coach K is walking off into the sunset in my opinion.

I knew things would go south for him

when his main bagman, World Wide Wes, accepted a job with the New York Knicks. To your point, he’s never been a good coach. His “dribble drive” offensive is just another name for playground basketball.

I think Calipari actually has the highest winning percentage of any active D-1 coach...and that includes Coach K. Calipari consistently makes deep tourney runs. He's been coaching for 30+ years and thats only the second time ever he didn't make it out of the first round.

Its fair to criticize his strategy/X & O's, but thats not the end all be all. He does all of the other things better than most.

I should add thought that


Mar 18, 2022, 10:20 AM

their loss is still on him...it was clear he didnt know what to do coaching wise in that game and have zero offense outside of throwing to the big guy or their little guard driving. That team has been slipping for a few weeks now and last night was the culmination.

Mark Few, actually. Think Cal is 2nd.***

By the name of Bradley Robert Brownell…

Results are definitely worse, but driving minivan at Daytona won't let you be competitive. I'd love to see what Brownell could do with even half of Kentucky's talent.

I look at it more like this using.

The racing analogy...Brad can drive the car veery very well but he doesn't have the ability to build a completive car himself. Calipari isn't the best driver but can build a car that always competes.....of course it helps being at Kentucky too.

Part of being a coach is building and managing a team ...it ain't all xs and os. Besides BB stinks in late game coaching, we have countless examples of that.

Ummm, would you trade him for BB? That answers your question.
