Calendar Image-1524x975 As long as John Calipari is at Kentucky, there will always be big, made-for-TV events in the regular season against other power programs in fun cities to visit. Next year's basketball schedule offers two of the most-attractive such games of the Cal era: Ohio State in Brooklyn and Duke in Chicago. In addition to these two clashes, we've got a Hall of Fame induction to look forward to in September and maybe the best weekend ever in Lexington in mid-October. If the football season goes as planned, we can add a bowl game to our calendars as well. Until that happens, here are five dates to remember that will make you turn your frowns upside down:

September 10-11th: John Calipari will be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame

October 15-18th: Auburn visits Commonwealth Stadium on a Thursday night, Big Blue Madness likely falls on that Friday, and Keeneland runs all weekend.
