John Calipari misses out on big bonus with loss to UConn

If you think you’re having a bad day, it’s nothing compared to John Calipari’s on Monday. Not only did the wormiest coach in all of sports lose college basketball’s national championship game, he also missed out on a $375,000 bonus he would have gotten for winning the title. Ouch.

John CalipariCalipari and his Kentucky Wildcats entered Monday night’s title game as massive favorites over the Connecticut Huskies. While the Wildcats were in the game throughout, they never led, and wound up losing to the unheralded Huskies 60-54.

Once again, free throws undid a Calipari team, as Kentucky hit just 13-of-24 shots from the charity stripe. Those misses will haunt the team for a long time. The uber-talented Wildcats couldn’t manage to play their game on Monday night, and were beaten by a veteran UConn team led by All-American point guard Shabazz Napier.

Napier and fellow guard Ryan Boatright were excellent on the night, combining for 36 points, 10 rebounds, six assists and six steals. They also thoroughly outplayed superstar freshman twins Aaron and Andrew Harrison.

Now Calipari’s roster of insanely talented kids will almost surely be torn apart by defections to the NBA. But that’s the kind of thing that happens when you sign a ridiculous class with seven (!!!!!) five-star recruits and pitch them on the idea of only playing one collegiate season.

So while Calipari tries to figure out his attack plan for next season – or possibly waits for the Los Angeles Lakers to call – he’ll also be smarting over missing out on a huge payday. And a diminutive guard named Shabazz is to blame. Sometimes sports can be damn beautiful.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
