      Agree with you. Lord help if someone is in the arena pulling against, he will have you removed, what a loser. Yep, he has coached at Kansas and Tarholes, both basketball schools, not a good game day coach for sure, better recruiter than game day coach for sure. Now John Calipari is a different story. Everywhere is has been, he has turned the school to a basketball power house. Then he ends up at Kentucky, where no one else has been able to kick start the basketball program and in one year he makes them a powerhouse once again.
