The coaching job  undertakes this season led Hall of Famer Denny Crumto offer a quaint suggestion.  “If I could give him some good advice, it’d be ‘patience,'” Crum said last week. “They’re all young kids. They all don’t automatically mesh like last year’s team did.”

Patience, one of the proverbial virtues, doesn’t get much mention nowadays. But it came up repeatedly last week as Calipari continued working to maximize this team’s potential and grappled with the idea that the Cats are not — gasp — dominant.
