08:17 AM ET 11.08 | Though one might imagine John Calipari is afforded the kind of respect that has everyone coming through his program eager to learn, that's not always the case. Not necessarily. Or, maybe more precisely, not automatically. After UK routed Transylvania 74-28 Monday night, Calipari saluted freshman Nerlens Noel's willingness to be coached. It sounded basic, fundamental and loaded with a duh-quality: Listen to the star coach. But at this early stage of the coach-player process of getting acquainted, Noel's coachability apparently stands out. ... Calipari noted how two other freshmen this season, Alex Poythress and Archie Goodwin, need a bit more time to accept a new way to play. "They're fighting it a little bit," the UK coach said.

Tin Man, it has been all over the web all week because Petrino's dad made the comment he would love to come back into coaching at the KY vacate spot, he has not said himself one way or another. I do not see it coming about.

Yeah, 0-6. I'm with you. I don't see Petrino in KY Blue. I too read about his dad's comments.

Oh, and 0-6, the quoted post politely explains our disposition towards your possible BIG CHECK OUT. Just, no. Thank you.

Now, what will we discuss next?
