So much for poor Coach Cal. When he lost most of his star power to the NBA Draft, there were plenty of naysayers wondering if John Calipari could restock the cupboard.
This guy went to the Bill Parcells School of Grocery Shopping.
Calipari scored his fourth top recruit in eight days when Indianapolis hoops star Marquis Teague shocked many by choosing to swim in the Sea of Blue.
Teague's father, Shawn, played for Pitino at Boston University. So it was assumed that Pitino and Louisville was a lock for Teague.
Instead, the guard that's on every insider's top five board for the Class of 2011 chose Kentucky, telling supporters Thursday afternoon that he loves Calipari's offensive style and approach with players.
Indiana, Cincinnati and Purdue were also left at the altar.
How does Teague rank against the other recent signees? Can you say "Final Four 2011"?
