    The fact of the matter is EVERYONE knows those wins were taken away from Cal, including all the folks at UK who put the celebration together. Has Cal won 500 games. Yes, of course, he has. But, since the Rose-Camby situations happened those extra wins do not exist. In our minds, Cal has 500+ wins and 3 Final four appearances. That is good enough for me as a UK fan. Who cares what the NCAA thinks??

    My apology would be a smart ass letter to the NCAA.

    We are sorry we offended you by not acknowledging your disdain for our coach, John Calipari. Based on our basic math skill we were able to come up with 500 wins. We are sorry that your records do not add up to the same amount. Can you please let us know exactly how many wins you have for our coach. It will not take very long for him to get the 500 we have already celebrated. You know, he does have a tendency to win at a rather rapid pace. We will notify you when we plan to celebrate again. However, you will not be invited. Thanks so much for being so childish during this process.

    This is not difficult. If the NCAA was contacted beforehand and grant their approval for the 500 win thing, tell them to go fly a kite. If UK did not contact them and received no go ahead, then issue a statement saying as much. Either way, all correspondence on both sides should be released, dating back to the beginning.

    I’m sorry, but the NCAA is absolutely stupid to do this. They let five OSU players go ahead and play in their bowl game last year even though the players had broken the rules. Then the NCAA throws out a back-handed punishment for THIS season. Now it comes out that whole program is corrupt and YET AGAIN the NCAA has egg on their faces, so they pick a fight with UK over this 500 wins crap to make a point (or at least try). Whatever credability that institution had left is completely gone in my book. Their system is broken.

    People are free to celebrate whatever they see fit. We could celebrate 600 wins; 700 wins, or, 800 wins for Cal. The celebration might be based on a false premise, but where is the law that was violated.

    This is so simple that a seven year old, near the end of the second grade, could figure it out quite easily. In order to commit a violation a law has to be broken.

    What specific law was broken?

    That is just the national chain stores. Go to any local sporting goods store and they will have multiple options. Baseball players still use a jock strap to hold their cup in place. The sliding shorts with the pocket in the front are garbage.

    Bomani Jones is a narcissist who attempts to reduce complicated arguments into arrogant and aggressive–and wofeully singular–counter-culture stances, making room for no other perspectives or possibilities. The irony is that the short-sighted rhetoric he spends so much time decrying is only matched by his own–his just dressed differently. His only redeeming characteristics is his brazenness, and, apparently, the way women throw themselves at him in elevators.

    Bomani Jones is a narcissist who attempts to reduce complicated arguments into arrogant and aggressive–and wofeully singular–counter-culture stances, making room for no other perspectives or possibilities. The irony is that the short-sighted rhetoric he spends so much time decrying is only matched by his own–his just dressed differently. His only redeeming characteristics is his brazenness, and, apparently, the way women throw themselves at him in elevators.

    Dear NCAA,

    The University of Kentucky appoligizes for celebrating all of John Calipari’s wins. It has now been brought to our attention there are a lot more wins to be counted in the years ahead. Would you now like to speak to the Cory Maggette incident at Duke. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2000/07/11/sports/main214287.shtml and explain who should appoligize for that? Derick Rose?
