This is something that crossed my mind when I saw that Thornton will visit Kentucky. A guy like Calipari probably has no qualms with negative recruiting, but what would he say? We've got a red hot coaching staff committed to stay together till '19, world class facilities, world class academics, great NBA opportunities, and incredible fans/students/alumni. So what does the guy say?
1) Sure, they're great with development, but you're already Elite. We won't ask you to work.
2) He's only had 5back-to-back tourney teams. That's not THAT many.
I can't think of any.
