Jerry Tipton wants to know where Marquis Teague got his shoes


My Jordans high-top, snapback fitted cap.

Who knew The Good Doctor Jerry Tipton was a sneakerhead? I never would’ve guessed.

Before yesterday’s practice, a media member asked Marquis Teague about his unique shoe selection. That’s a legit question, right? I noticed Teague was wearing low-cut grey shoes against Arkansas-Little Rock — an unusual choice of footwear.

But Jerry Tipton isn’t as concerned about the look of the point guard’s shoes, as much as where he got them.

“Your brother (Atlanta Hawks point guard, Jeff Teague) bought you your last pair of shoes,” he said. “Who bought you these?”

You mad, Jerry?

    Teague should have said where did you get your shoes? I bet the Peddlers Mall. If I was the players I would just not respond to any of his questions.

    So, is he implying that there shoes from his brother are impermissable benefits? That’s the best investigative reporting Tipton can come up with?

    Elliot Ness had more on Capone than Tipton has on anything that goes on at UK.

    He should have answered, “I think some guy named Wes?”, just to keep Tipton busy for a while.

    I really, really wish Cal and the Cats would institute an unofficial boycott of Tipton and just refuse to acknowledge his questions as biased, accusatory yellow journalism. Even if the school won’t pull his press pass, the players should stop talking to him.

    14) You’ll remember Tipton had us all believing it was a violation to chant the name of recruits at games for years. He always mentioned it, usually with some note about it probably being a violation. Someone then finally looked it up and found out it wasn’t a violation.

    I wish Matt or someone with access to the idiot would ask UK or Cal why they continue to even speak to him. Even if they can’t (or won’t) pull his press pass, they can tell the players not to answer any question he ask. Let the dumbass Hearld Leader pay him to cover a University that won’t talk to him. What’s the use of answering his question’s, he is going to make up whatever he wants anyway. At least not recognizing him might make his job a little harder.COME ON MATT, ASK CAL WHY THEY CONTINUE TO RECOGNIZE THIS DUMBASS!!!!!!!

    17/22) I agree. Most of the time he basically just antagonizes the players. And you know Cal is aware, because he’s made some backhanded comments to Tipton in the past. Why not just say, NO MORE of this crap, you’re done.



  26. jabell

    I agree with Stan – if I were Cal, I’d tell the players to just ignore him and refuse to answer his questions. If he aks Cal why players won’t talk to him simply say “because you ask the dumbest questions”.

    I wish Teague would look tipton right in the eye, lean forward and whisper… “a booster gave them to me.”

    tipton would get the biggest boner and run around like a chicken with its head cut off, yelling, “I KNEW Cal was a cheater… I KNEW UK was cheating… I KNEW Teague was a cheater”

    It would actually be pretty entertaining to watch ‘ole tipton think for one second that he had one on us. Only to have Cal, the rest of the team, and all the media start laughing at tipton cause they were all in on the joke.

    So, did tipton ask these kinds of questions to Bowie, Rex, Mash? I’m really surprised that none of the players over the years have popped that turd.

    Does anybody else ever wonder if these kids just build up a bunch of credit card debt before they get to the NBA, knowing they’re going to be rich? That’s what I would do, even though Dave Ramsay wouldn’t recommend that.

    John Wall bought a $200 pair of all white Jordan XII’s in the Blue Dawn documentary when he was at NikeTown, and that was what got me thinking about it.

    He’s been wearing gray shoes all season. Macy started complaining about them in the first exhibition game against Transy. Nothing new here… same shoes, same irrelevant pain-in-the-arse Tipton.

    Don’t players get their shoes free from the University anyways? I thought the players got new pairs of shoes for each game.

    16. I was thinking that same thing. I am pretty sure Jeff Teague signed with Nike this offseason. He likely gets shoes for free and likely passes them on to Marquis. It’s funny how Jordan Jefferson was never questioned about all of his shoes and where they came from. Or when MJ told all the UNC players that if they won the Championship, he would give them his new $250 shoes. But the school can allow that because they wear the Jordan brand.

    Can’t wait to see how this “shoe deal” gets worked into the NotJerryTipton peice this week.

    I don’t know Jerry. Considering his brother will make $1.5 million this season with the Hawks, I’d say it’s safe to say he’s bought him many sneakers.

    #35…when are you gonna be ranked higher than UK? I guess the wins over Stony Brook, Savannah St, Gardner-Webb, Stetson, Howard, UMBC, and Evansville don’t help your two major upsets at home over UK and OSU, by 1 and 4 points respectively. You win at Ohio State this weekend and then we can talk.

    35. Funny that IU beating UK is a signature win. U basically made the case that we ate better than u. It wouldn’t have been a signature win for us even if we had beat IU. Are u related to Goodman? U use similar logic to make your points.

    Tipton is one step away from mailing an envelope full of cash to wildcat lodge and hiding in the bushes with a camera to snap whomever opens it.

    Obviously I’m no fan of Cal – but I’d even support him if he told Tipton to take a hike. If Tipton has something on UK – then there’s no doubt we’ll here it. Until then – he’s just baiting the players and apparently being very careless (as he was a couple of years ago with the Patterson truck story).

    Actually – Cal shouldn’t have to be the heavy – Barnhart should talk to the HL and issue a statement like:

    “The University of Kentucky enjoys unmatched enthusiasm by it’s fanbase – a base that for years has been kept informed of the program through the efforts of good, honest reporting on behalf of papers like the Herald-Leader. Times and technology have changed and thus, new avenues of information are now available to fans that feed that enthusaism beyond anything ever seen before. Of course, we will attempt to maintain a cordial relationshop with the Lexington Herald-Leader as the paper of record in our community, but we feel it necessary to restate our desire that you conduct your craft at a high level of professionalism and integrity. Mr. Tipton has written numerous items over the last few years that jeopardizes your newspaper’s reputation of unbaised, objective reporting, and he has done so at the expense of the reputation of this institution, our basketball program, and most importantly, our student-athletes. Our hope is to continue this long-standing relationship between the University of Kentucky Athletics Department and the Herald-Leader, but if Mr. Tipton continues to carelessly make false and baseless accusations regarding our program and/or our players, we will have to seriously consider ending that relationship. We hope the Herald-Leader has enough respect for journlistic integrity, for our institution, for our young people, and for their readers to abide by these simple and reasonable standards.”

    When Tipton ask a question the UK players and coaches should say “next question”, like in the T.O. press conference.
