And, trust me, I'm well aware that it's practically "impossible" to support both UK and Louisville, but somehow I manage. But it's November and the season is here. And tonight, the Wildcats begin exhibition play against Transylvania.

Locked-Out Ex-Wildcats Wanted Back on UK Campus

University of Kentucky head basketball coach John Calipari is a great recruiter. That is no secret. University of Kentucky head basketball coach John Caliapari has a great big heart. That, too, is no secret. But now, Coach Cal has combined those two highly valued assets and has essentially re-invented the whole recruiting process. At the same time, he's allowing former UK players unable to work due to the NBA lockout to use the university's practice facilities AND continue their education, if need be. The man is a stone cold genius.

NCAA Unhappy About UK’s Calipari Milestone Celebration

Back in February, the University of Kentucky had a great big celebration in honor of head basketball coach John Calipari's 500th victory. Confetti, a big cake, pin the tail on the donkey--you know, the works! Everybody had a very good time...except the NCAA.
