Calipari’s move was just business

The least Bruce Pearl and Tim Floyd can do in exchange for the Memphis basketball search helping them get raises is making sure the Tigers play home-and-homes with the Vols and the Trojans as long as they are at their schools. … For the last time, for every UofM fan who felt betrayed by John Calipari taking the Kentucky job, let me repeat: This is a business and Cal is a salesman, like any coach worth his salt. He sells a brand name. He makes you believe, whether you’re a player, a recruit or a fan, that his program is the most important thing in the world. But the bottom line behind all the rhetoric is business is business.
