Calipari: FBI findings are a “black eye” to college basketball

Given all that is happening in college basketball this week as testimonies blow up the FBI’s investigation in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that John Calipari was asked about the recent events in his sport.

The Courier-Journal’s Tim Sullivan asked Calipari what he thinks of Roy Williams’ remarks — Williams said he is “dumbfounded” by the allegations against other NCAA programs —  to which Cal said he’s been out of town and hadn’t seen Williams’ quote, but the current trial is a “black eye” to the sport.

It’s a black eye for college basketball,” Cal said, echoing what he said at last year’s Media Day when news of the investigation first broke. “It’s not good for basketball. I hope the decisions we’re making out of this are good for the kids.”

“Other than that,” he said. “I don’t know what’s been said.”

    Cal – “Boy, I sure wouldn’t want to go to Kansas now, not after yesterday. That would really… Hurt…”

      Careful, all the comments under the “Hurt” post were mysteriously expunged.

      Probably my fault for pointing out that he did not cancel, and that he was never scheduled to attend BBM.

    Be really interesting to see what ALL THE CAL HATERS will say after all is said and done…that most every major program and coach is implicated except UK and Calipari.

    Cal’s comments so much better than the Big Phony Daggum Roy. When a coach plays dumb he’s usually guilty. See Rickie P x100.

      Cal and UK would have been the first words out of everyone’s mouth if they had the slightest bit of dirt. We made front page of ESPN when we didn’t rush the field.

      Sure, like the NCAA hasn’t been like fly’s on crap since he arrived in Lexington!!
      Do you seriously think the NCAA wouldn’t love to nail Cal and the Gold Standard? Paleeeeze! They’ve probably had 24 hour a day teams on him AND players since he arrived here.
