    An argument can be made that Saturday’s high noon hoedown in Rupp Arena looms as (too) much about personalities John Calipari and Rick Pitino as it does about players and the game.
    Here are some questions and conclusions for thought during Saturday’s game:

    I was talking to one of my daughters the other day, after she read one of my articles in the paper. She said, “Dad, you probably made a lot of people mad with that article.” My reply — “Maybe so, but I preached it in my church and everyone came back the next Sunday.”
