Calipari gets corn maze made in his honor

Did aliens do it? No, an even scarier set of species is responsible: Kentucky fans.

When it comes to appreciation and adoration, you can't get cornier than this.

Kelley Farms, located in Lexington, Ky., has gone out and designed a corn maze 10 acres large and is turning it into an event. Of course it has. This is Kentucky! That's pretty impressive, though I think Cal looks a little to chunky in the chin. Corn mazes are great weekend activities in the fall all across America. But how often do we see something like this? Frankly, I'm surprised it took this long.

Per WKYT.com
:

“We think a lot of Coach Calipari,” said farm owner John Kelley. “He’s almost like part of the family. Kelley. Calipari. I think we might be related, somewhere way back,” he laughs.
“Really, we just want to let Coach Cal know how much he means to Kentucky and how much Kentucky appreciates having him lead our basketball team.”

In addition to the image of Coach Cal, this year’s maze will also feature a basketball-themed word puzzle, spread throughout the winding paths.

This is not new territory for Kelley Farms, as they've carved many an image into the bluegrass carpet in years past. Guys like Daniel Boone, Abraham Lincoln and Henry Clay have all be designs made visible from the sky. The maze will open later this month, on Sept. 23, and will operate until the end of October.

Calipari gets corn maze made in his honor

Isn't this sick? Isn't it sick that Norlander (I still don't know who he is) criticizes a fan base for being passionate, especially since a passionate fan base is what every sports program in the world craves.

What member of any sport's program--anywhere, from grade school to the majors; from America to China--wishes that their fans were less supportive; less passionate; or, less involved with their program.

Would the NCAA be more satisfied if fans acted more like mindless zombies, who showed up at games and sat motionless like mannequins? Would they like it more if fans cared so little about their particular programs that arenas and stadiums were generally less than half full? Would the majors be ecstatic with the same tiny show of support?

It takes a complete idiot to criticize fans for being passionate. And. I mean this with all my heart.

Don't get excited.. it'll be coming down in a year.. I mean if Cal is involved...

sorry.. couldn't resist. I had to see if it was as fun as all the haters make it look.

***It will be gone far sooner than that; it will be gone as soon as they combine it.

Is everyone in California as ignorant as you?

They must be; the state is completely bankrupt.

Who in the -ell is matt norlander?
And, where did he get such a corny name?


He's one of two that CBS hired when they decided to fire Matt Jones.....Got his big break working for Yahoo sports digging up dirt on colleges and coaches since that's pretty much what Yahoo is all about these days....they broke the tOSU/Jim Tressel story, and if I'm not mistaken the Reggie Bush story at USC.

Also a liar. Said he's a Penn State alum. Didn't see that one on his resume`.....something like Eastern Connecuticut State or something similar. I suppose he forgot about google.
