Kentucky is reportedly going after Calipari with both guns blazing. Several reports state that the Memphis coach met with his players today and sounded like a coach with a foot or more out the door.
SI.com reports that UK has not asked for permission to speak with Calipari as of 1:00 pm. Sportsline suggests that's because Calipari's people are dealing with a third-party representative of UK.
Again, this is only relevant to UGA in so much as Memphis might be a better fit for Anderson geographically, and Memphis might be more desperate to hire him. UGA does play in a better conference, but Memphis may be inclinded to spend like a drunken sailor to land Anderson given that the basketball coach is THE financial engine of the entire Tiger athletic department. Calipari's total salary plus annuity at Memphis is in the $2.8-3.0 million per year range. It's extraordinarily unlikely that UGA will pay more than $2.8 million per year for anyone.
Speaking of Anderson, Jason Whitlock of the KC Star today writes that Missouri should pay Anderson an elite level salary. Here's hoping they don't.
