Greatest Vol Villains: Rick Pitino vs. John Calipari is running an online "Greatest Vol Villains Tournament."

In today's round one matchup, they pit Kentucky head coach John Calipari against former head man Rick Pitino.

Here is an excerpt:

It's Big Blue Day as we enter the second half of the first round in our Greatest Vol Villains Tournament. Today's matchup will have more to do with your age than any other in the opening round: if you're under 25, you might be curious why Pitino is in the bracket at all. But don't let the fact that his opponent has a ten year resume of evil against the Vols keep you from weighing the argument: though they've done it differently, both have inflicted a great deal of pain on Tennessee Basketball fans. Calipari had less success against better Tennessee teams. Pitino had all success against lesser Tennessee teams. Both are especially villainous.

Currently, Calipari leads Pitino 90-47 in the voting.
