VaughtÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s note: Vaughtsviews.com Mark Hensley has a far different view of John CalipariÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s technical fouls and ejection Saturday night than most UK fans. And Cal is also on record as being a huge Joe B. Hall supporter and has embraced him more than any previous UK coach ever has from all I have seen and heard. But Hensley has a different take I thought was worth sharing just to gauge your reaction.

Man, Cal is so narcissistic that it makes me wonder how the true Cat fan really buy into this guy.
What does Cal do, get two technicals back to back and get thrown out of a meaningless game late in the second half just to put the spotlight back on himself. There was nothing else to do that for, BUT himself.
Cal could not handle the real issue tonight and the fact that this program is bigger than he. No, it was a night to honor Joe B. Hall and Cal couldn’t take it. It was about the past and how players from previous UK traditions showed up to pay tribute to their coach, like him or not. Something that Cal will never have at UK.
It was not about Cal and “the greatest night in UK basketball history” as he tried to sell it when he got five players in the first round of the NBA. He does not have a clue.
UK is the program that gives this guy a theater in which to play out “his” dreams and “his” glory regardless of you, the fan or the great UK basketball tradition. Don’t you get it? He could care less about UK and it’s tradition. It’s all about CAL and his own brand of marketing. I did not get any new shoes but I do have something he can wash!
Wake up UK fan!!Ã‚Â Go ahead and hate me but you know it’s the truth.
