Fans excited about Coach Cal

To say that John Calipari has energized the UK fan base might be the understatement of the year.

Friday night's Big Blue Madness will be the first opportunity for UK fans en masse to express their love for Coach Cal.

"He's a good coach for the players and a great recruiter, which is something Kentucky hasn't had in a while," UK student Bo Zimmerman said. "So we were waiting all day for the announcement to see if he came, and I had been at Rupp since 5 a.m. So I can't wait for Big Blue Madness. I'm ready."

So far Coach Cal has tried in his speeches and public comments to temper the expectations a bit.

But with the spotlight shining on Big Blue Madness Friday night, Coach Cal knows UK fans will expect to see greatness in the making.
