Are Kentucky Fans Turning On John Calipari?

Up until lately, John Calipari has basically been broadly loved and admired by Kentucky fans. And why not?

He’s recruited brilliantly, he’s made deep runs in the NCAA Tournament and won the national title in 2011-12 behind Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, still one of our all-time favorite leaders in college basketball.

Yet there’s always been an undercurrent of unrest, muted by success to be sure, but always there.

It popped up when Calipari said that Draft Day was the most important day to the program. Well, not to a lot of the fans who prefer championships.
