What's next? Calipari seeks perfection
By Andy Katz
NEW ORLEANS -- The questions will stop now about whether John Calipari can win the final game, the national championship.
So what's next for him?
"Before I leave coaching, I would like to coach an undefeated team,'' Calipari told ESPN after Monday night's 67-59 national championship victory over Kansas at the Superdome.
"I would like to coach an undefeated team, before I'm done with this. Why? Because it can't be done, so let's chase that.''
Indiana was the last to go undefeated, in 1976, at 32-0. UNLV nearly did it in 1991 with 34 straight wins before losing to Duke in the national semifinals.
Will Calipari stick around Kentucky and the college game to make an attempt?
