Speaking at Kentucky's Big Blue Madness on Friday night, Calipari delighted the capacity crowd at Rupp Arena with a rousing speech more reminiscent of a campaign stop than a basketball practice.

The Wildcats failed to qualify for the NCAA tournament last season and lost to Robert Morris in the first round of the NIT. But the expectations remain high this season, boosted by another banner recruiting class.
