From Chris Fisher of the CatsPause.com: “On the heels of a disastrous 2012-13 season that ended with an NIT loss, Kentucky coach John Calipari was said to have returned humbled and with renewed vigor, ready to claim vengeance on the college basketball world.
Calipari was 102-14 in his first three seasons at Kentucky, but 42-20 over his last two.
To that end, Calipari brought in what some hailed as the greatest recruiting class in the history of mankind: six 5-star prospects, including the top-rated point guard, shooting guard, power forward and center in the country. Some said as many as seven first round NBA Draft picks.
Twenty-nine games later not much has changed.
Recruiting rankings and draft projections are not something Calipari can control. Clearly, a lot of people missed on this current crop of Kentucky freshmen, not just Calipari. But his own message is well within his reach.”
