    Happy for Coach Cal, probably doesn't take any sting away for him yesterday, but still happy for him.

    Has to be a bittersweet couple of days for Cal. I think it's well deserved.

    You must not know the game if your going to make that comment. Guess you know more than the voters.

    Its so aggravating to hear people who say "He's not even a coach, just a master recruiter."

    1 Championship, 4 Final Fours, and convincing the best 19 year olds in the world to play 20 minutes a game for the better of the team. NEWS FLASH: These things are a huge part of coaching.

    Unless you rewatch the last 3-4 mins of the Wisky game lol. I still love him though.

    Cal & K are the best coaches in college basketball right now...have been for a few years now IMO. Very deserving for him.

    As the face of Kentucky's Flagship University, Cal does us proud.

    Coach Cal on Facebook & Twitter:

    "This is going to be hard for people to understand, but I was at a loss for words when I got the call for the Naismith Hall of Fame. I was overwhelmed but so grateful. I would imagine other recipients felt how I feel now: unworthy of such an honor, but appreciative. As a coach, this honor means that many parents entrusted you with their sons and many players entrusted you with their careers. I'm indebted to all of the players, all the families, all of the staffs and all the administrations that have helped me build these programs."

    Congrats to Coach John Calapari on this Honor. I thought that it was deserved. Also, I was just as glad to see that Louie Dampier earned his place in the hall, another well deserved honor for one of the U.K. all time greats.
    On a side note - Bo Ryan absolutely deserved to be chosen and hopefully will be soon.
