Dan Patrick had an interesting take on John Calipari and the Kentucky Wildcats this morning on the DP Show. He doesn’t think that Coach Cal will last that much longer at Kentucky.

Controversy has once again found Kentucky head coach John Calipari, as the young Wildcats lost on the road at South Carolina on Saturday and Calipari was ejected in the second half.

Arkansas shot 41.4% from the floor, committed 20 turnovers and gave up 26 offensive rebounds in Thursday night’s win over No. 17 Kentucky on Thursday night, and would you believe that it took less than 48 hours for the Wildcats to notch a loss worse than that?

All season, Kentucky has appeared a step away from taking a leap to the next step in their ascension as a very young team.

Given how young No. 14 Kentucky is, with just one upperclassman (Jarrod Polson) part of the playing rotation, there were bound to be growing pains during non-conference play.
