Remember when Coach K first took the job and so many predicted it would be a real problem for Duke? Well, not anymore: now it's seen as a huge advantage.
Also, John Calipari and Rick Pitino have begun maneuvering to be considered as his successor. Calipari actually posted a poll on his home page (or had it posted but big difference), so naturally a lot of Kentucky fans have jumped in. But he's a very polarizing figure and it might be tough to sell him. Worth noting: given his focus on character, Jerry Colangelo may have issues with Rick Pitino's 15 seconds of glory in a Louisville restaurant and the subsequent sordid details.
All that said, we think Pitino is a better choice if it came down to those two.
