Speaking for myself, of course. I don't even hate Calipari. He's a scumbag, but I don't hate him for getting Derrick Rose. (Especially since, as a Bulls fan, the 10+ years I'll get to watch him in Chicago outweighs the one year he'd have been an Illini.) If Calipari didn't buy him, some other crooked program would have. That's how it works with elite CPL recruits most of the time and it's why Illinois backed out of the Anthony Davis recruitment.
