Well, say this for Kentucky's John Calipari: As players' coaches go, he's certainly one of the hippest ones in the business. USC's Pete Carrol, for example, might have invited Snoop Dogg to a USC practice and considered it a roaring success. Borrrring. Not Calipari, though, who brought in Drake, hip hop's fastest rising star, to act as an honorary coach at Kentucky's Midnight Madness this past Friday.â†µ
With Calipari, Drake, and Kentucky's uber-recruit John Wall all in the same place, I'm frankly a bit surprised the universe didn't collapse under the weight of all the expectations and hype regarding those three.â†µ
(But regardless, at least nobody stole a cop's gun and shot a toilet. Because that would be... weird, Georgetown, just weird.)â†µ
UPDATE: Louisville fans, sadly were forced to endure another week of Steve Kragthorpe coaching, and a Drake parody.
