Calipari hasn’t reached out to Pitino; hopes the allegations aren’t true

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, or if your Twitter blocks the word ‘hooker’ from your feed, you probably know our friends in the University of Louisville basketball program have quite a controversy on their hands.

Today, John Calipari was asked if he has reached out to Rick Pitino during this time of scrutiny around UofL. Cal said he has not reached out to Rick because he doesn’t think it’s appropriate; then he added this about his thoughts on the allegations and Rick’s potential knowledge of the alleged wrongdoings:

“I hope it’s not true. If any of it is, it’s not good for college basketball. It’s not the norm. And I would say this, if any of it is true, I can’t believe he would know anything about it, just knowing him as I do.”

    Lamar Odom has disproved the UL argument that these guys don’t need Brothels.

    Stupid question. Most people not living under a rock know their relationship is strained at best. Why would Calipari ‘reach out’ to Pitino. Sounds like an idiot sports writer trying to drag Kentucky into the mess.

      I asked Butch Jones if he had change for a dollar.

      He said, “sorry, I don’t have a fourth quarter.”

      This might be the best comment I’ve read all day. Does Tennessee even have a basketball team any more?

      UT was put on basketball probation because of Pearl and then had to fire Tyndall to avoid more NCAA trouble. Kiffin landed the big orange football program on two years probation that was then extended two additional years because of an assistant coach under Kiffin named Willie Mack Garza. Yet, here is a Vol tool talking about Cal? WTF!! I think his coon skin hat is too tight and cutting off blood flow to his brain or maybe his cholesterol is high for eating too much opossum. Either way, Go Cats and Roll Tide this weekend!

      We were conducting simultaneous investigations on the Vols’ Basketball, Football, Baseball, and – believe it or not – Swimming & Diving teams about five years ago. Totally unprecedented and almost unbelievable corruption throughout the athletic department.

      Want to talk about cheating, UK cheating goes all the way back to Adolph rupp days, even receive the death penalty once, then the Eddie Sutton days, hahahaha. Since someone brought up football, Uk has always sucked in football, and if stoops stays it won’t get much better than what it is now. After your losing streak starts tomorrow night, you will yet again see UT win by 20+ over the kitty cats. Only reason you will be in a bowl game for the first time in forever is because of that weak non-conference schedule you have. luckily for UK the SEC is down this year or you wouldn’t be where you are at now, that EKU game was about on par with where you are at. Good luck beating the worse Auburn tigers team in many years but I’m still betting you get beat soundly. LOL.. When Skal is ruled ineligible there goes that basketball season. Not that cal would win it again anyway, look how he gave that game away in the final four last year, his in game coaching is horrible….Go Vols!!!!

      C’mon, folks. You know you’re not supposed to play with the riff raff.
      NOTE to spelling police: Yea, no clue how to spell riff raff.

      Tennessee has never even made a final four, much less won a title and you’re trying to talk trash to the greatest basketball program of all time. Also your point guard was just ruled ineligible this season. You have no point guard. Good job on bringing up cheating scandals from before any of out current players were even born. 2 out of your last 3 basketball coaches got in trouble with the NCAA. We may have a few skeletons in our closet, but at least they have 8 titles to keep them company. Congrats on that 1 elite eight you’ve been to.

      As for football, if the SEC is so down this season, why is your football team 3-3??? Come back and talk crap when your team has a winning record.

      Vol Nation: when your basketball teams makes NCAA tournament and gets to Final Four: something almost every SEC other than the big orange has done; when your football team is relevant and not in news for being put on probation, come see us. Until then, get lost troll. UK Athletics way above your pay grade…..

    So glad we have a Coach (Cal) that continues to show:

    a). the Media
    b). the Entire Public
    c). and the small amount (15%) of our own UK Fan base who “Bash in state Schools Who Experience Hard Times”


    Way to show all of us how to conduct ourselves Coach Cal… you continue to keep our University of Kentucky on top in College Basketball, AND conduct!

    ON…ON…U OF K…
