From Glenn Logan of ASeaofBlue.com: “Call me cynical, but I am convinced that for the most part, John Calipari has a reason for doing everything he does. So what was Coach Cal's motivation for reminding Kentucky fans of an old adage on CoachCal.com that probably everyone from the state over the age of 20 has heard — the parable of the turtle and the scorpion. This parable is also sometimes known as the frog and the scorpion, but the events described are virtually identical regardless of the species.”
