Once again, Rick Pitino is wrong.
In this interview with Terry Meiners, Rick states Kentucky isn’t honoring the 1996 team because of him being at Louisville.
He did get one thing correct when he stated, “The fans certainly don’t care for me there anymore.”
You can’t start at the 11 minute mark to hear his drivel.
Last year we helped out Bowling Green East by posting their GoFundMe page on our site.
We are doing it again, because, they are awesome!
From their GoFundMe page:
“The Bowling Green East 11 & 12 All-Stars have started post-season competition in similar fashion to last year by going 11-0 in the district and state tournament and advancing to the regional tournament in Indianapolis, IN to be held August 7-13. This is only the 4th time in the 40-year history of Bowling Green East that it has won the State championship!”
“Travel, meals and hotel costs add up for the families so if you would like to help offset these expenses, it would be greatly appreciated. We were overwhelmed with the outpouring of support from the community last year on our road to Williamsport and will be equally grateful for your generosity this year. Go BG East!!”
“The team and coaches are so proud to represent BG East and to carry on the legacy created by the 2015 team. We are honored to follow in their footsteps and are so appreciative of their hard work and the path they laid for this team.”
“We are also honored to represent Bowling Green and deeply appreciate the community’s support. It is very expensive for the parents for hotels and travel and we also want to make sure that the players receive memorabilia that they will be able to keep to treasure these moments for years to come. We thank you for all donations to this site and your outpouring of support. Go BG East!!”
You can help fund their travel, meals, hotel costs for all of the families and keep up to date on game times and TV information here.

Brad Calpari – Meet the Wildcats
CoachCal.com has done a great job each season in putting together an introduction to the new players each season.
The video below with Brad Calipari in no exception.
Here’s a chance to learn more about the “coaches son” and his individual challenges.
He’s been around the program a long time and knows the expectations. We commend the kid for facing the challenges head on and wish him the best in his freshman season.
After all, he’s the biggest recruit since maybe John Wall because it guarantees our coach will stay on the sideline for several years to come.
We are ready to run through a wall now. The season is rapidly approaching…
Karl Anthony-Towns Is Back In Lexington, Kentucky
Is there anyone that represents the University of Kentucky any better than Karl Anthony-Towns?
Coach Calipari maybe?
Karl took some time from his busy “Rookie of the Year” in the NBA schedule to come back to Lexington to spend some time with other former UK greats.
Karl talks about Karlito, his NBA dreams, the Olympics, his time at Kentucky and has a great back and forth with the media.
Is he even real? Great kid. Yes, he’s real. Check out the interview below.
