When now Kentucky head coach John Calipari left Memphis he was an inspiration to the fans. Tiger Nation loved him,but now its the other way around.

Memphis players don't like new coach Josh Pastner because he's not going hard on them like Coach Cal did.

One Memphis Tiger fan says he's too nice for us, and that Coach Cal should have stayed!

I take what he said was inspirational.
