07:31 AM ET 11.29 | So, from here, how can Kentucky build on its work in progress, beginning Sunday under the bright lights of New York City? Are they ready? Providence isn't a bad opponent. Kentucky's foe Sunday night is 6-1 heading into a game with Fairfield on Friday. The Friars have some talent. "These next games were playing, we can lose every one," John Calipari said Wednesday night. "These guys don't understand that, but I think they will." The Kentucky coach said that right after his team had knocked off previously undefeated Eastern Michigan 81-63 at Rupp Arena in what was a fouled-filled, grind-it-out sort of basketball game. ... The last time UK took its show on the road it was to Chicago, where in an "unfair" fight the Cats lost to now-No. 1 Michigan State. Next stop: New York.

Don't you dare diminish our victory by losing to the Friars.

Then that 40-0 is out of the question?

By the time March rolls around his freshmen sensations will have stopped going to class altogether. The day he addresses this is the day I award him a shred of respect.

He didn't make the rules, why single him out just because the elite few want to play for him? I dare say he could care less whether you deign to respect him... though with that kind of arrogance, you're his kind of guy, no doubt.

Well he does hold the NCAA BB record for having his teams wins vacated. Give him credit, some "elite" players just happened to make some great money before they ever saw a pro contract with him. Great selling point to prospects. " Play for me and you can play some college ball, have some fun AND make a great living all at the same time."

True. Must be why historically his teams not live by them. And don't argue with facts: Jeesh! See Mass. and Memphis. The vacated years.

He does not make the rules, he just has to learn to adjust to coashing around them and with them. He still must be a fairly good coach to have that win-loss record though, give him some credit, you won't, but you should, even coach K said it is something that may be here to stay to work with and use, that is all he is doing, not his fault, you guys act like he invented it.
