Lunardi: Calipari over Pitino, if only because of his probable longevity in the college game and at Kentucky. As a program builder and marketer, Calipari is an even greater innovator than Pitino as a tactician (which admittedly is saying an awful lot). Calipari may be the greatest salesperson of his generation in any endeavor. If you don't believe that, take a look at UMass before and after his tenure there. The marriage of his self-promotion and brand-building skills with Kentucky are somehow understated, as are his abilities in player development. Whatever the next iterations are in terms of recruiting and rules, Calipari will find and exploit an advantage. He always has.
