Forbes says Calipari Most Overpaid Coach

So, according to Forbes' latest sports study, Calipari is the most overpaid Division I men's basketball coach.  Really?!?  Interestingly (I'm being sarcastic!), Rick Pitino, who is the sixth highest paid coach, is nowhere to be found on that ignominious (I'm beginning to sound like Tom Heiser) list.  Keep in mind that Calipari tops this list DESPITE Forbes' formula including his vacated final fours among his body of work.  I believe that's just wrong; if his employers can't take credit for them, he shouldn't either ... anyway.

All this brings me to this:

Can we FINALLY put to rest the type of criticism we saw here for Pitino last year and up to the beginning of this season, which on many occasions was asking for his head?  Note that I say "type" of criticism; as a coach of a high profile program, he certainly needs to be kept "honest" by his team's fanbase.

Bottom line:  CRP is a Hall of Fame coach and replacing him might be even more difficult than replacing Crum appeared to be.  (Out of curiosity, is there another basketball program that immediately replaced a HOF coach with another?)

Oh, and while we're at it, we should close the book on the "type" of criticism leveled upon Siva at the start of this year; if he continues on this trajectory, he'll be looked back upon as a bona fide stud PG.
