Kentucky vs. Auburn: Picks, odds predictions Elite Eight

Kentucky vs Auburn : Picks, predictions for March Madness Elite Eight matchup It may surprise you to learn John Calipari and Bruce Pearl aren’t close. Coaching can be a fraternity of sort,s but these two get along more like Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly in “Step Brothers”.

Their rivalry goes back to when Pearl arrived at Tennessee in 2005 and chose to challenge Calipari’s ascending Memphis program as a means of elevating his own. It worked, honestly. When the Vols and Tigers played at FedExForum in February 2008, Memphis was ranked No. 1 in the polls and Tennessee was No. 2. The Vols won and rose to the No. 1 ranking.

That was among Pearl’s few successes against the Wildcats. But Calipari’s 11-5 record in the matchup should not be read as significant dominance. On many of those occasions, Pearl was presiding over a developing team trying to establish itself in college basketball’s hierarchy. Calipari hasn’t found himself in a rebuilding season since his first year or two at Memphis all the way back in the early 2000s.

They’ve never played before with so much on the line. Auburn’s blowout of the Vols in the SEC Tournament signaled the Tigers’ advance onto the national stage (and hinted Tennessee might not be long for March). It probably cost the Wildcats a No. 1 seed, but the weird thing is, that probably would have resulted in the Tigers and Wildcats meeting one round sooner.
