Pitino, Calipari have storied relationship of rivalry By David Schuh

As UK approaches one of the most monumental sporting events the commonwealth has ever seen, the universty will also see a coaching matchup that is rich with history. And, depending on who is spoken to, one that is mired in controversy. The relationship between UK head coach John Calipari and University of Louisville head coach Rick Pitino dates back to 1988, when Pitino reportedly played a key role in helping Calipari obtain the head coaching job at the University of Massachusetts. Pitino claims to have written a $5,000 check to cover a portion of Calipari’s first-year salary, according to a March 26 article. At the time, Pitino even referred to Calipari as one of his “three or four really good friends in coaching,” according to a 2011 Sports Illustrated article. But, as far as fans know, that’s

where the pleasantries stopped. As each coached returned from unsuccessful stints in the NBA in the early 2000s, they found themselves competing at least twice a year in Conference USA: Pitino at U of L and Calipari at the University of Memphis. That’s where the rivalry began. Memphis and U of L battled for conference championships for four seasons before Pitino’s squad made the jump to the Big East in 2005. When Sports Illustrated approached Pitino to talk about Calipari for that article, he said, “I really don’t know him, so I’d prefer not to.” Somewhere in that time, the relationship went sour. Calipari has had past contention with several coaches, including Jim Calhoun, University of Conneticut head coach, John Chaney, former Temple head coach, and Bob Knight, former Indiana University head coach. He has always played the “little brother” role: leading the underdog

to unprecedented heights while holding no punches in the process. Some say it’s his fatal flaw and his greatest attribute. However, it can rub people the wrong way. Then there are Pitino’s recruiting battles. In 2004, Rajon Rondo, a point guard from Louisville, wanted to play for the Cardinals. But, Pitino had his eyes set higher, namely on Brooklyn phenom Sebastian Telfair. Pitino stopped recruiting Rondo and went all in for Telfair, who gave him a verbal commitment at the start of his senior year. Rondo gave up and signed with UK. In August, Telfair decided to put his name in the draft. He was selected 13th overall. Not only was Pitino left with nothing, he lost a good player to the rival school in the state. Now, Pitino was becoming the little brother. He was losing recruits to UK, he was losing games to UK (he’s lost eight of 12 in the rivalry) and See COACHES on page 2

Safety a concern for celebrations Campus, Lexington officials urge students to be smart By Drew Teague

---President Eli Capilouto said Wednesday that should UK win the national championship, classes will still be held on Tuesday. Capilouto, along with city officials, discussed Lexington’s plan for dealing with UK’s Final Four celebrations at a news conference. The main theme from all the officials was on keeping the celebrations safe so no one is injured. Officials also

discussed the use of social media and cameras to determine who has started fires. Lexington Mayor Jim Gray said a lot of history is happening this weekend, but citizens need to make sure the city survives through it. “This is the time to have a good time, but we also know we want to come through Saturday," he said, "with our neighborhoods and our citizens fully intact as well.” Gray said he wants all people to remember the goldSee CONCERN on page 2

VENDOR Continued from page 1 “I think as a business, they have that right,” she said. “But it doesn’t make sense for them to refuse good money.” Hands On Originals did not return a Kernel’s phone call and message as of Wednesday night, but the company issued the following statement to the Lexington Herald-Leader this week: “Hands On Originals

both employs and conducts business with people of all genders, races, religions, sexual preferences and national origins,” said Blaine Adamson, an owner of the company. “However, due to the promotional nature of our products, it is the prerogative of the company to refuse any order that would endorse positions that conflict with the convictions of the ownership.” Catherine Brereton, a junior double major in English and gender and women’s studies, is a Gaines Fellow for 2011-2012 school year.

As part of the fellowship, she organized a service project honoring the LGBT community. She said regardless of whether someone is a member of the LGBT community, she thinks the decision is morally wrong. “If they have a right to do that, where does it end?” she said. To discriminate at that level would open the floodgates to many other issues, Brereton said. “It’s homophobia,” she said. “They can dress it up however they want.”

Blanton said that UK is reviewing the case to determine the future of a third vendor. Baker, the president of GLSO, said numerous organizations have started to raise awareness about the issue. A “Boycott Hands On Originals” Facebook page was created and now has more than 1,000 fans. According to a HeraldLeader article, Fayette County Public Schools Superintendent Tom Shelton said Wednesday that a temporary hold will be placed on Hands On Originals. The school district and Lexington city

government have done $28,548.41 and $53,585.27 in business with the company, respectively, since July 2010, according to the article. Baker said he is shocked that the company’s decision not to print the T-shirts was based on Christian beliefs. “At our meeting, I looked around the table and counted the numerous people who go to Christian churches,” he said. Baker said members are working with the Human Rights Commission on its investigation. He said he hopes

Julia Roberts a villian in new film “Mirror Mirror” marks a historical moment in cinema: Julia Roberts’ debut as a villain. After nearly 25 years of mostly playing heart-of-gold types _ be they a pizza waitress, a prostitute or a crusading lawyer _ Roberts becomes the Evil Queen in this snarky version of the Snow White tale and lays down the gauntlet in an opening voiceover: “This is my story, not hers.” If only! Roberts threatens to steal this movie, and someone should have let her. She clearly relishes the change of pace, playing the queen as a chirpy, malevolent matriarch straight out of a reality show _ “The Real Housewives of Ye Olde Fiefdom,” perhaps. But as this muddled movie stabs around desperately for the right comedic tone, it loses track of its best asset. In fact, it squanders nearly every member of its fine cast, including the appealing Lily Collins (“Abduction”) as 18-year-old Snow White; Armie Hammer (“J. Edgar”), poking fun at his airbrushed good looks as Prince

Alcott; and Nathan Lane, Broadwaying it up as Brighton, the queen’s hapless henchman. Even the Seven Dwarfs, reimagined as harddrinking bandits, are played by charismatic actors like Jordan Prentice (“In Bruges”) and Martin Klebba (the “Pirates of the Caribbean” films). So what’s the problem? Director Tarsem Singh (“Immortals”) magically saps the life out of every performance, but in fairness, he’s stuck with a script that twists old material in ways it has already been twisted. Characters lapse into modern-speak (“This queen radiates crazy!”) and Snow does some feminist sword-swinging, but that’s a far cry from the inspired satire of the 1987 classic “The Princess Bride” or even last year’s passably clever “Puss in Boots.” That’s too bad, because “Mirror Mirror” could have been a shining moment for Roberts. Instead, this movie reflects poorly on everyone. MCT

he managed one Final Four while the lateTubby Smith/Billy Gillispie years in Lexington managed zero. And that’s how things have changed since 2009. Calipari’s hiring at UK was a perfect storm of sorts in the saga. His fiery personality combined with the recruiting platform he now had was immediately dominant. Since Calipari has taken the job at UK, he is now in control of one of the premiere programs in the country. No longer UMass, no longer Memphis, but UK. Not only is he the head of one of the most historic programs in history, he is U of L’s, and Pitino’s, biggest rival. When asked about their relationship on Tuesday in a press conference, Calipari said,

that this issue will raise awareness to local community members. “We aren’t seeking monetary damages, we just want to raise awareness that this type of discrimination is occurring in Lexington,” he said. “We don’t feel it is acceptable. We just want the entire community to be aware it is going on and make their own decisions about doing business with the company.” Sexton said the case is still in its earliest stages and the target timeline to reach a decision is about 180 days.

“It’s fine. We don’t send each other Christmas cards, but if I see him in public and I’m recruiting, we’ll spend some time. But it’s fine.” Fast-forward seven years from Rondo. Another star point guard Marquis Teague was thought to be destined to play at U of L. His father played for Pitino at Boston University and every recruiting guru was told he would give the Cardinals his commitment. But, at the last moment, Teague had a change of heart and committed to UK in April. It was another loss for Pitino, but this was a loss to Calipari. Pitino has had a successful season, taking a sometimes offensively plagued, injury-prone team to a Big East Championship and deep into the tournament. And now, he faces UK and Calipari in the Final Four. There’s history, there’s controversy and there’s distaste surrounding it. One coach will win and be one step away from the elusive national championship.

CONCERN Continued from page 1 en rule during times of celebration this weekend. Capilouto echoed Gray’s safety concerns for the students who would be celebrating, reminding them that the nation will have its eye on the city. “The University of Kentucky and Lexington share much; we share a very positive brand. Now the nation, and certainly the world, is watching,” Capilouto said. “Through our conduct, which is going to reflect positively on our community, I know that we’re going to give other reasons to have something good to talk about.” Capilouto said students who choose not to act responsibly will be dealt with swiftly through proper procedures. “I ask our students especially, through our conduct, we respect this community of Lexington, we honor a 150 year tradition,” Capilouto said. “So how we conduct our self this week has implications for our future, so I ask you to honor all the great work of our student athletes.” Keith Jackson, interim chief of the Division of Fire, said he wants people to refrain from setting fires this year and for students and citizens to make sure they get out of the way when an emergency vehicle comes down the street. The division will be using cameras and social media to help figure out who has started fires, but couldn’t comment on locations of the cameras, Jackson said. “In the past a lot of guys have lost jobs, have lost their freedom because they were caught on camera,” Jackson said. “We’ll have to determine (if a case is sent to the

Dean of Students), based upon the situation. Me and Joe (Monroe) will make a decision on if we want to send it to the university. Our goal is not to ruin some child.” UK Police Chief Joe Monroe also said students who are acting improperly during celebrations will be dealt with accordingly, whether it be with police or the Dean of Students Office. “We are going to be out in full force this weekend,” Monroe said. “We’re not going to stand for any type of criminal mischief, arson, assaults or acts of vandalism. In addition to any violations that poses a violation of the student code of conduct, they will be handled through the Dean of Students Office.” Monroe said he does not want any of the national attention the city gets to overshadow a possible national championship. Lexington Police Chief Ronnie Bastin said his forces will be out in the normal areas of congregation for fans, but they will be able to respond to other areas that become a concern. Bastin declined to release the number of officers who will be present in certain areas. Kelli Edwards, NCAA police incident commander with Lexington police, said the department’s job will be the same, just with heightened presence by officers. “Our mission, for the next few days, as usual, is the safety of individuals and the protection of property, both public and private, both on and off campus,” Edwards said. “I think we’ve all seen over the past weekend what some of those behaviors are (for celebrations).” Edwards said that bars in the North Campus area have been cooperative and are glad

the police have an interest in their businesses. The police will also be using the mounted force that the city has, said Sherelle Roberts, spokeswoman for Lexington police. Waste management will play a vital role in this weekend’s celebrations. Traffic plans were also made for the weekend due to extra vehicle and pedestrian traffic on North Campus and downtown. Traffic patrol will be in place on Euclid Avenue and Limestone Street on Saturday, Mike Blanton, commander with Lexington police, said. He said parking will be restricted in the 300 block of Limestone and Euclid and Woodland avenues on metered parking spaces. At around 5 p.m. on Saturday and Monday, spots will be blocked and vehicles will be removed, he said. UK Student Government President Micah Fielden brought up the issue of students and couch burning, saying students should not be a part of the activity. “To the student, I’d want to say this: we must be responsible and we must maintain a safe environment while we are celebrating,” Fielden said. “I’m not sure if I should say this, but I feel like burning couches is like rushing the court at Rupp Arena — we shouldn’t be doing it.” Anthany Beatty, UK vice president assistant of public safety, has been through six Final Fours during his time in Lexington in various roles from Lexington police officer to Lexington police chief to a vice president at UK. Beatty said police were unprepared for celebrations during the 1996 championship run, with 25 officers stationed at the intersection of Woodland and Euclid, where around 7,000 people arrived in about 10 minutes.

“We felt like we could handle that,” Beatty said. “Woodland and Euclid became a problem because so many people so rapidly got there that we suffered vandalism, people were injured, damaged vehicles, damaged property. “That experience in ’96 gave us the impetus to better train, equip the officers, more strategic planning not only with Lexington police, but with university police.” Beatty said the biggest change among the 1996 championship, the run in 1997 and another championship in 1998 was the training of police. “The biggest changes were training police personnel about what they were going to see, how to react (and) what the expectations were,” Beatty said. “From a police perspective, police are trained to deal with criminal matters and bad folks who are doing something criminal. This is simply a celebration that people get injured in and it gets out of hand, so you condition them to the mindset.” Beatty said the new ABC36 news van was flipped over and was set on fire, though he doesn’t think the fire was set purposely. He also doesn’t know where the tradition of couch burning began, but said there were dumpster fires in 1996. The Lexington Police Mounted Patrol was important during the celebrations in 1997 and 1998, Beatty said. “It’s difficult to move officers … into (crowded) areas when someone is hurt, but with the training and the skill set we have with the horses, mounted patrol gives us the ability to move in,” Beatty said. “The horses command a level of respect that a person can’t because of their size and the vantage point they give officers.”

I ask our students especially, through our conduct, we respect this community of Lexington.” ELI CAPILOUTO, UK PRESIDENT

The injuries from the 1996 celebrations were more than the subsequent two years, said Beatty, with various types of injuries. “There were a few fist fights. The big concern was that there were several situations where bottles and cans were thrown and someone would get struck somewhere else and we could never tell where that occurred from,” Beatty said. “We had a few people fall from climbing on

buildings, fences, signs and those kinds of things.” Beatty reminds students, like the other city and university officials said, to be smart and have fun while being safe. “The main thing is, again, it is a celebration. Everyone knows and expects that regardless of the outcome of the game,” Beatty said. “Think about other people; respect other people and other people’s property.”

Cats insist Final Four is ‘just another game’ Preparing to take on a healthy U of L squad By Sam Rothbauer

This weekend marks one of the most anticipated collegiate sports events in the history of the commonwealth. Around 6:09 p.m. Saturday, UK and U of L matchup for the first time in the NCAA Tournament Final Four for a berth in the national championship. The Cats insist it’s “just another game” that just “happens to be against Louisville,” senior guard Darius Miller said. But UK fans are well spoken for, judging by the arguably traditional couch burning tangents and bed sheet slogans hanging from porches and outside of bedroom windows. “Our fans eat everything,” UK head coach John Calipari said. “They are piranhas.” Last year, the Cats were the upset for each team they played on their journey to the Final Four, but in 2012, all that has changed. UK is the overall favorite and has defeated each of its opponents so far in the tournament by double digits. But if fans thought the Final Four matchup was personal before, they’d better prepare for Saturday. “It is a lot more intense now,” freshman point guard Marquis Teague said. “It’s the Final Four, so it means that much more with this big ri-

Guards Peyton Siva, Elijah Justice, Mike Marra, Wayne Blackshear and forward Rakeem Buckles were all on the bench for the Cardinals at some point in the season. And besides season-ending ACL injuries to Marra, Buckles and forward Stephan Van Treese, UK faces an improved Cardinal squad, Calipari said.

“I think they are going to be aggressive, they are going to be tough, they are going to be up in you, and you have to withstand that,” Calipari said. For the Cats, the rivalry at stake for fans and the chaos beneath their noses makes no difference. “We’re not going to take it as a rivalry game,” sophomore guard Doron Lamb said. “We’re just going to take it as the next game we play.”

Battles for positions highlight spring football UK president visited practice Wednesday CODY PORTER Kernel columnist

Strolling the sidelines of Wednesday’s spring football practice was UK President Eli Capilouto. “Dr. Capilouto is an old football player, he won a state championship at guard. He is very supportive of our players and he is a down-to-earth guy who just wanted to watch some football today,” UK football head coach Joker Phillips said. More so, the president was seeing the competition of a young, growing team, which is something Phillips has mentioned several times already early in spring practice. “There’s really good, healthy competition that everybody’s trying to help everybody. Everybody’s headed in the same direction, we have the same goals, getting each other better,” he said. “Offense trying to get the defense better; defense trying to get the offense better.” Phillips was vocal in making the point that the team needed to continue to practice at a fast tempo. The faster the team can practice means that they can get more reps in during their allotted practice time. Having such a young group of players, he said every snap is key. “We have to continue to get more reps because we have a lot of young guys that need reps,” he said. For returning players such as freshman running back Josh Clemons, getting the opportunity to feel how the speed of the game translates into improvements for starters and those further down the depth chart. “Seeing those little things in the game that you need to work on, you just need to focus on out there in practice even though the competition might not be as good because of your scout teams,” Clemons said. The wide receiver position

for 2012 is contested. Even though juniors like La’Rod King, E.J. Fields and Gene McCaskill currently sit atop the depth chart, it’s the freshmen Daryl Collins, Demarco Robinson and Bookie Cobbins who are among those who have also stood out to the Cats’ returning starting quarterback in freshman Max Smith. And with that gap in experience, the Cats’ 2011 football season was no stranger to on-

field chemistry issues after they rotated between Smith and junior quarterback Morgan Newton. Having the opportunity to see their various passers is one benefit that King sees for himself and the other receivers during spring practice. “You get adjusted to all the quarterbacks early. That way, all the timing chemistry is down so we can have a good, productive fall camp,” King said.

Fielden, Frizzell and the Final Four Student body presidents discuss rivalry game ‘Yep, I’m crazy’


I’m going to go out on a limb here and say the University of Louisville is going to beat the University of Kentucky come this Saturday. I know, I know… you’re thinking that just because I’m the U of L SGA president that I’m siding with the home team (which is on all accounts, correct), but hear me out. The University of Kentucky has done a tremendous job this year. You have unreal talent and are playing NBA ball as a college team. Your march through KURTIS the season toFRIZZELL ward the Final Contributing Four was one columnist that was expected – and that is where your fault lies. We’re not supposed to be here — we were written off, smitten, kicked to the curb like yesterday’s old news. Your fans, who once worshiped Coach Pitino, were saying he was washed up, overrated and that Louisville should divorce from him and move on; heck, many of our own fans were losing faith. Then the improbable happened: we went into the Big East tournament and won the whole shebang. All of the sudden, campus was filled with excitement and hope. Then came Selection Sunday and the near impossible tournament run. First they said that No. 13 Davidson was going to surprise Louisville, a No. 4 seed. Logic: last year Louisville was a No. 4 and lost to No. 13 Morehead State. However, we sent our first set of Wildcats home. Second round was No. 5 New Mexico. We survived the scare there, and still squeaked by with three. Third was Michigan State. Again, we overcame and beat Sparty. Izzo didn’t know what to do. Fourth was Florida. People had little faith yet again, but we took the 13 ESPN experts who picked Florida and fed them Crow. Next are you guys. The Kitty Cats. The Lexington Basketball Academy. The hated brother down the road. We’re little brother. We’re the “Urban School” in the “Big City.” We don’t have Keeneland. We don’t wear ties to football games. We don’t exist, but the pressure is on you to win. You expect to win, yet I’m here today to tell you that you’re not. We’re playing for fun and you’re playing because you’ve invested your athletic budget into a basketball program. That gives us the edge. And besides – no one in their right mind is going to pick us to win, but I am. I guess we’re just crazy here. Good Luck, and Go Cards! Y’all may have the brow, but we have the heart!

Seventy-five miles, 33 AllAmericans and 5 NCAA National Championship titles are some of a few differences between the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville’s basketball teams. However, this weekend UK will show that it rightfully owns the title of the state’s premier basketball program. With five starting players who will be first round NBA draft picks within the next two years, there is no doubt in my mind that the MICAH Kentucky FIELDEN men’s basketContributing ball team will columnist be playing for our eighth NCAA Tournament Championship come Monday night. But there are more reasons than that. Some would point to this season’s loss to Indiana after a last second ‘Leattner-esque’ shot as the fuel that drove our Cats to beat them in the Sweet 16, but I believe the truth is that the Wildcats have become a much more mature team since that game. After a full season of coaching by Calipari we have seen Marquis Teague transition into the team leader we need him to become, Terrence Jones break out of his slump and become one of the most dominant forwards in the nation and Darius Miller has become the best sixth man in the country, gluing our team together. If we look to the last time the Red and Blue met it was not a pretty sight. Our Wildcats shot merely 29.8 percent from the field and 18.8 percemt from the 3 point line with 21 turnovers and still managed to win by seven. This game doesn’t factor the momentum either team has had in recent days but it is a huge indicator of our ability to bring home the “W” even when we aren’t playing up to our true potential. Finally, this year’s tournament will be played on a “Neutral” court in New Orleans. The University of Kentucky has the single best following in college basketball and I can guarantee come game time on saturday night in New Orleans there will be a sea of blue. Because of such a great following, UK’s fanbase has made playing the Wildcats on a ‘neutral’ court as close to playing in Rupp Arena as possible. I will concede, in November’s election season Kentucky could very well go red, but in March our commonwealth has and always will Bleed Blue. For Cardinal’s fans, we are glad you have made it this far and done wonderful things to put our rivalry on televisions across the nation but be prepared to ‘Brow Down.’

In diligence,

Go Cats! Sincerely, Big Brother Micah Fielden

Kurtis Frizzell University of Louisville
