Many analyst will try to predict who will take what job and who will be fired, but one school everyone is looking at is the University of Kentucky.  

After the firing of Billy Gillispie, the names of two coaches were at the top of their list—Sean Miller and John Calipari. These two coaches coach the two elite programs.

The big question they will ask themselves is, "Should I stay or should I go?"

In each situation there are many reasons for each.

In John Calipari's situation he could stay at Memphis.  He would be able to coach the program he created, but if he does leave he will be able to coach at one of the most storied programs in college basketball.

In Sean Miller's case he could stay at Xavier and coach a team he has taken to two elite eight appearances. He also has a bright future with many returning players. If he does leave he could go to Kentucky or Pittsburgh if that job opens up.

In my opinion John Calipari will go to Kentucky and lead them to many Final Fours and National Championships.

Also Sean Miller will stay at Xavier and lead to them over the hump into the Final Four.
