Our first championship

I believe that something about this team was posted here many years ago, but this excellent story appears in the current UMass Magazine: https://www.umass.edu/magazine/summer-2 ... ta-of-1871
"Jack didn’t have any envy in him," Calipari said. "He was the greatest coach to ever coach here."
