A conversation between Troy Williams and his mother

2013 forward Troy Williams tweeted this conversation he had with his mother after Kentucky won the title. It’s two weeks old but still good to hear as Williams approaches decision time. He’s expected to announce soon.

    By Marlen Garcia and Steve Wieberg, USA TODAY
    The résumé for Kentucky men’s basketball coach John Calipari forever will be marked with asterisks.

    The 1996 Final Four appearance Calipari made while coaching Massachusetts was vacated when it was found that star Marcus Camby took money from an agent. Calipari had moved on to the NBA by the time the NCAA ruled.

    Now, the NCAA will wipe out his 38-2 season with Memphis in 2007-08, when the Tigers bulldozed their way to the NCAA championship game behind star freshman Derrick Rose before losing to Kansas in overtime. That makes Calipari the only coach to have Final Four appearances vacated at two schools.

    NCAA RULING: Memphis forced to vacate Final Four run
    LOPRESTI: Calipari’s vacated past raises eyebrows
    FULL REPORT: Read the text of NCAA’s report

    The NCAA announced Thursday that a player was ineligible for that season because his SAT score later was invalidated by the Educational Testing Service. Though not named, Rose is the only player who fits the report.

    Memphis plans to appeal the findings. The basketball program was also put on three years’ probation along with the women’s golf team for extra-benefit violations.

    Pending its appeal, Memphis must return money from the 2008 NCAA tournament run. Sheryl Lipman, university counsel, said at a news conference that Memphis will have to return $85,000 it already received through a dispersal formula but would also forfeit as much as $530,000 in money that hasn’t been dispersed yet. In addition, should the appeal be denied, athletics director R.C. Johnson said Calipari would have to return bonus money, which according to the coach’s contract was at least $300,000.

    The school previously had to vacate its 1985 Final Four appearance.

    Although Calipari has not been singled out in this case, the head coach typically is viewed as accountable for all that happens in his program – good and bad. But once again, Calipari has moved on, this time to Kentucky as the nation’s highest-paid college basketball coach. He has a contract worth $31.65 million over eight years.

    Kentucky administrators have voiced support for Calipari, and so has Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear.

    Former Kentucky athletics director C.M. Newton, a member of the school’s 1951 national championship team who now chairs the NCAA’s NIT committee, said he is a Calipari fan.

    “I think Calipari is one of these guys who’s not unlike many, many others,” said Newton, whose son Martin is Calipari’s director of basketball operations. “He’s very bright, and operates in the area of ‘I’m going to go to the edge of the rule but I’m not stepping over it.’ … Guys who are successful in intercollegiate athletics are in that grey area sometimes. … You’d like to think everybody operates within the spirit and intent of the rules, and you can shoot for that. But in the real world we’re now, where the dollars are driving it, you’re in a big business. That’s where we’ve evolved to.”

    As far as a stigma on the coach, “that’s for others to decide,” said Paul Dee, chair of the infractions committee and former Miami (Fla.) athletics director. “Whenever you have a situation where you have a record that’s vacated, that’s a pretty strong indication that there was a problem. But because no allegations were brought concerning the coach … we did not consider any allegation against the coach and therefore made no finding (and) no penalty.”

    At Ohio State, former athletics director Andy Geiger went through a scandal with coach Jim O’Brien, who violated NCAA rules by giving a prospect a loan. Ohio State was forced to vacate its 1999 Final Four appearance.

    “I think it’s very hurtful for the people who participated,” Geiger said. “Their records and achievements are lost forever. It’s a permanent stain. … From the point of view of fans, the public, it’s not terribly significant because they had the experience. And the experience is not erased.”

    Funny how last week we were saying “NO Nerlens! Don’t listen to your Mamma”, now we are saying, “Troy, Mamma knows best!”

    13) Really? No one in Kentucky knew what happened at Memphis until you posted that. We have a great compliance officer at UK who makes sure that everything is on the up & up. So you can take your little troll self somewhere else. Thank you, drive thru.

    11. Too bad he hasn’t offered to Chris Walker yet, I think he wants to go here bad. Maybe that means Cal has faith in Julius Randle coming here, even though he hasn’t offered him either.

    Vacater, I don’t know or care what your intention was. The fact that you were able to post a pointless article which pertains to ancient history is mind boggling. I hope ksr restricts such posts in the future. You should be ashamed of how irrelevant you and your article are.

    it must really, really suck to be a UL fan, and know, deep down inside that the best you will EVER be, is little brother. I would imagine that is why we get so many trolls here, because they know in order to be a part of something big, they have to come here. Someone get the air freshener, the smell is gonna get worse in here when the final roster (another #1 recruiting class) is complete, and UL must again realize that in order to feel better about themselves, they have no choice but to try and take us down with them, so they come here.. Sad actually, but i realize the more Loserville trolls we have here, the more they are realizing that UK will always be Big Brother.

    You know what the sad part of this is 21. That’s all these people have. They’re butthurt sore ass losers or fans of teams that lost so the first thing they want to do is try to run down Calipari. Try to make him out to be some sort of a bad person. And while we’re on that subject I’ve yet to hear of Calipari paying for some skanks abortion that he had sexual relations with in a shadey dump of a restaurant.

    Oh and btw VACATOR he won’t vacating this one or any future titles that he wins. Sux to be you. But I hear they installed a diving board on the roof of the YUM! Center for folks like yourself. Happy jumping.
