Beyond Bizlex: John Calipari as Kentucky's Next Economic Stimulus

The Lexington media has dedicated more prominent coverage to John Calipari's arrival as the University of Kentucky men's basketball coach than it did to President Obama on election day and the next week.

So I decided to jump on the bandwagon and write a column for Business Lexington about the new coach. I think this guy has the potential not only to bring the basketball program to its former prominence, but give the community a real shot in the arm.

This is a bit risky - the last two successful basketball coaches in this town left shortly after I wrote columns about them. So if John Calipari suddenly leaves, I suppose it's my fault.
