Gregg Doyle will say ANYTHING to get a reaction. He once said this about the best coaching hires of 2007 (he said exactly the same thing about Calipari, too):
"Billy Gillispie, Kentucky: Not just a home run, this was a walk-off grand slam. In all of college basketball, and this includes that cute little bugger down there at Florida, Gillispie was the perfect hire for Kentucky. By the time he's done running Louisville out of the state, the Cardinals will be getting their mail in Missouri."
His recent column is high level trolling. He makes a back-handed compliment to Pitino, by saying, basically, that the reason he's impressed with Pitino is that he's managed to field a team in the shadow of Calipari.
His points are so absurd that they aren't even worth debating.
Instead, I say, Bravo, Gregg. You are the original internet Troll. You're a Troll Hipster. You thought it was cool when everyone else thought trolling was just for assholes.
