Kentucky coach John Calipari was named one of the Most Disliked People in Sports by Sports Illustrated this week and felt the need to comment using his Twitter account. 

Doubtful Calipari would ever give up coaching to run for office, but we wouldn't bet against him if he did. He has a knack for winning on the court and on the recruiting trail, which is a big reason why he made the list in the first place. People don't like to see one guy succeed so much, especially when he isn't coaching at their favorite school.

Calipari also has a history of NCAA problems and that only adds fuel to the fire of those who dislike him.

Calipari wasn't the only college hoops personality to make the list. Former Mississippi guard Marshall Henderson was included as one of the more obvious choices. Henderson has a lengthy list of run-ins with the law, opposing fan bases and others.
