What the heck has happened to Kentucky's men's basketball program under head coach John Calipari?

At one point, Coach Cal was probably considered to be the best head coach in the country. But those days appear to be long gone.

Kentucky's head coach entered the 2022-23 season under major scrutiny. Fast forward to Wednesday night and the hot seat is heating up.

The Wildcats are getting trounced by Missouri, 75-59, on Wednesday night.

Kentucky, ranked No. 19 in the country, will drop to 8-4 on the season barring a shocking late-game comeback on Wednesday night. 

Is the heat really turning up on Kentucky's national title-winning head coach?

If Kentucky can't turn things around this season, it could make for a very interesting offseason in Lexington.
