Kentucky Fans Are Not Happy With College GameDay's Segment Debating John Calipari's Legacy

Should John Calipari have more than one national championship? With the talent he's brought in every year at Kentucky, and some of the teams he had at Memphis, probably, but the best team doesn't always win the NCAA Tournament. With the one-and-done format, it is very difficult to rack up national championships. The fact that Calipari has been to the Final Four in four of his six years at Kentucky is remarkably impressive, and should validate the job he has done.

That isn't good enough for everyone, however. During today's episode of College GameDay, which is live from Texas A&M ahead of the match-up between the Aggies and Wildcats, Rece Davis posed the question about Coach Cal's legacy. Jay Bilas and Seth Greenberg defended the Kentucky coach, while Stephen A. Smith got a bit worked up about how he should have more titles under his belt.

(Psst...Stephen A. Bill Self only has one championship.)As you'd expect, Kentucky fans are NOT happy about it.
