"He hasn't mellowed?" "No Sir, has not."
Thought this was a great piece by CBS
He will never get the credit he deserves. If you really try to be as objective as possible.....I realize it's impossible for us. But just try to be objective. UConn was a cesspool when he came in. Substandard facilities, substandard coach, perennial doormat of the Big East..........for the youngsters that didn't live this, suffice to say we were Rutgers. Think about that. And 30 years later we have 4 National Championships............all because of one man with an unwavering passion. K, Roy Williams, Nosepicker, Calimari.............they have everything handed to them. Outside of Wooden, who revolutionized the game, can't think of anyone that built a program from NOTHING..........maybe LESS than nothing, than Jimmy C. Every friggin street in the state should be named after him.Calhoun is still vastly under rated as a coach.
Take a left on Calhoun drive, go for about a mile and you will hit Calhoun lane, now you will want to continue on that about another mile, another left on Calhoun street, drive under James C bypass and finally take a right on Jim Calhoun Rd. You'll know you are there when you see a big Husky cross. You've gone too far if you hit James A Calhoun roundabout and will have to take the first right onto Jim C throughway.Every friggin street in the state should be named after him.
