Today everyone’s favorite point guard, Saul Smith gave his feelings on Calipari’s issue via his Facebook status. Huge mistake here for Saul both professionally (he is a coach at this time) and personally (his relationship with his alma mater). Saul’s comments are below, and this cant end well:
“Bad bad day for my alma mater. The UK athletic program will never regain its true champion nature with Businessmen running it. Never, no matter how many so called blue chip players you bring in. You can’t sacrifice your integrity for success. You just can’t do it. I’m an alum and I deserve a clean-ran program, plain and simple. Period, and if anyone disagrees, you, my friend, shouldn’t support the program I played 4.”
Glad Saul gets the final word on what someone who “supports the program” should feel…..
UPDATE: Saul has now apparently deleted this from his Facebook. Guess someone told him what a bad idea it was….but unfortunately for him, we saw it first.
