Memphis Cancels Plans to Honor John Calipari After Fan (and Likely Booster) Backlash

Memphis announced yesterday that the school would honor former head coach John Calipari during a game in December.

Some 24 hours later, the school announced that those plans have been cancelled.

Today, Rudd put this statement out:

My thoughts: Poor effort Memphis. Calipari took your program to all-time highs, then left for arguably the best job in college basketball. Cancelling this event due to a lack of "basketballs" a bad look for the university and its fans.

Sure he took the team to those highs, some of which were later vacated. Let Kentucky honor him for his accomplishments. I'm sure this will be a nice shot to Calipari's ego so that's always a great thing to witness.
