UK’s Calipari To Wear A Red Coat In Honor Of A Major Cats Booster

john-calipari-mug-shotWhen you spy the basketball coach for a major Kentucky basketball program sporting a bright red sportcoat this winter, it won’t be ex-Louisville coach Denny Crum.  It will be current Kentucky coach John Calipari who’ll be wearing the bright color — the color of the rival Cardinals (gasp) — as a tribute to a major UK booster who passed away last week.

Richard J. Corman sent the plane to Memphis that picked up the current Wildcat coach and brought him to Lexington for his introductory press conference.  He owned the RJ Corman Railroad Group — whose main color was red – and was a sizable donor to UK and its athletic department.  He passed away after a lengthy bout with cancer.

Yesterday, at the end of a rather eloquent pair of notes about his friend, Calipari posted the following on his website:

 

“I always said I would never wear red, but in honor of my friend, I’m going to wear a Rick Corman red jacket to one or more games this season.  It’s the second color I said I would never wear but ended up doing (brown was the other), but I promise I will never wear orange.  Oh, and it won’t be for the Louisville game either.”

 

If he’s the coach at your school, you love him.  If he’s the coach at another school, you just know he’s guilty of something.

Like him or not, there’s no denying that Calipari often wears his heart on his sleeve, whether it’s raising relief money for Hurricane Sandy or Haitian earthquake victims.  And in this case, his sleeves will be made of a bright red fabric.

    The Absent Game

    Among me and my husband we have owned a lot more MP3 gamers over the years than I can count, which includes Sansas, iRivers, iPods (typical & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players.
