NCAA Asks Wikipedia to Apologize for Recognizing Coach Cal’s Wins

wiki-wins

———————————————————————-

To Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger, co-creators of Wikipedia:

It is ‘very troubling’ that Wikipedia credits John Calipari for 509 wins. Your web-based encyclopedia blatantly ignores 42 vacated wins from UMass and Memphis, and it is ‘extremely troubling’ to our institution. The handling of your college basketball statistics is ‘remarkably troubling’ and we demand that you make the necessary adjustments and apologize to your 365-million readers.

You have until Friday to update Calipari’s record and respond to this letter. We ask that you submit your apology to us for approval before it is released to the public.

If you do not meet our demands by Friday, the entire Internet will have to meet in person with the Committee on Infractions.

Sincerely,

The National Collegiate Athletic Association

    The only problem is that wikipedia is not affiliated with the NCAA and Kentucky is. Great humor, however!

    let’s just count his NBA wins and say we’re sorry but he actually has 539. Anyway Currently at 1:30 wikipedia has corrected it. Now, as Kentucky fans, we need to make sure wikipedia is correct and return it to 509 college wins.

    Im not sure how many loses had compared to wins during the vacated season, but are they going to take those away too to keep his winning % straight?

    OK, so we bi-celebrate after winning the 2012 national championship game (which could be season win number 33 and “official” number 500).

    Someone with insider access on ESPN needs to tell us poor folk where they have everyone going in the new mock draft. Also where KY is on the top 10 backcourts they just posted. It’s all insider info.

    Seriously, what the hell can they do?
    I know they can do whatever they want, but can they do it in
    the public eye?

    The NCAA also has the power to declare players ineligible. In extreme cases, a player can be banned from competing for any NCAA member school. The only two known instances where this has happened was in 1989, when Kentucky Wildcats basketball player Eric Manuel was banned after the NCAA ruled he had cheated on a college entrance exam and in 2010 when Enes Kanter, another Kentucky Wildcats basketball player, was ruled a professional for taking 50 cents from a Turkish professional team. These incidents highlight both the NCAA’s bias against the University of Kentucky, and their passion for making a mountain out of a mole-hill.

    12- 3rd in both front and back court. Irving, Derrick Williams, Knight, Valanciunas, Vesely, Kanter, Leonard, Walker, Marcus Morris, Klay Thompson are the top 10.

    20 nailed it, but what I would like for the NCAA to answer is this, why hasn’t coach Rat face still hasn’t had his wins vacated when Cory Maggott played and was proven getting illegal stipends from an agent the whole year he was playing at DUKE?

    This has to be a joke … And a bad one at that… I didn’t know Adolf Hitler was named president of the NCAA … it’s almost scary to see how much they really hate John Cal
