College coaches are famous for giving out pizza to students camping for tickets.

But a luxury bed in a hotel room-like tent?

Kentucky coach John Calipari did it on Friday, gifting one lucky UK student waiting overnight in line for UK's first open practice the chance to sleep in comfort among the thousands of fans in tent city, providing her the same Tempur-Pedic bed his players sleep on (minus a foot or two, length-wise).

The tent included two twin Tempur-Pedic "Champions Collection" mattresses, strung up fairy lights, a doormat saying "Howdy, Y'All," a soundsystem to listen to the "Tent City Live" radio broadcast, Calipari's book –- and a headshot of the coach in a frame on the bed stand, ensuring the winner had sweet dreams.

Calipari, who likes his suits Italian and expensive, said after seeing the Big Blue Glamping setup: "If I knew this was the tent, I would've stayed in a tent like this. The ones over there (pointing at the masses) are a little bit tight."

WKYT (CBS Lexington) estimated the cost of the Tempur-Pedic mattresses and tent contents at nearly $20,000.
