Kentucky fans were calling for it for a while, but the man that penned the letter chastising Kentucky for celebrating John Calipari’s ‘500th’ win resigned citing “unforeseen personal reasons.” Thomas plans to stay a member of the committee of infractions, but has given up his chairmanship and is being replaced by the commissioner from Conference USA. In all seriousness, I hope the ‘unforseen personal reasons’ are nothing bad, but if Thomas resigning helps the NCAA stop selectively enforcing random rules, it’s good news for all of college sports.
Thomas also oversaw the cases against Tennessee and Connecticut.
Now on a completely unrelated note, meet my pick for the next coaches opening at the University of Kentucky, regardless of sport.
To Cats acting like Dogs and beating the Chippewas – whatever they are.
