But Calipari wouldn't bail on the bluegrass for LA's bright lights.

Kentucky coach John Calipari doesn't agree with Bobby Knight that college basketball lacks integrity or that he is proof there is a problem. Calipari refused to get into a war of words Friday when asked about the pointed criticism from Knight that Calipari's continued employment proves the game has a problem. Instead, Calipari said he remains a "big fan" of the former Texas Tech and Indiana head coach. "I don't agree with what he says, but it doesn't change how I feel about him," Calipari said.

Say what you will about John Calipari. Call him a sleaze-bag (he's been called worse) for his recruiting methods. Rip him for the vacated seasons and Final Four appearances at Massachusetts and Memphis when players and agents did questionable things on his watch. Mock him for how oily and unctuous he can sound in interviews.  But the man can coach. Anyone who watched Kentucky win its eighth national title last night -- 67-59 over Kansas -- and anyone who watched the Wildcats dismantle opponents all season long knows that.
