Calipari denies taking shot at Rick Pitino, says he doesn’t believe Pitino knew


During his appearance on ESPN’s Mike & Mike this morning, John Calipari clarified his previous comments to Mike Lupica on Lupica’s show regarding what coaches should and shouldn’t know about their program outside of basketball. Cal’s comments were taken as a shot at Rick Pitino, which led to a response from Pitino, but Cal wants to be clear: he has nothing but respect for Pitino and the words were not aimed at him.

“The stuff has blown up more than it should be,” Cal said. “If (Pitino) took it wrong, I apologize.”

    Like Cal says though… if you throw a rock at a pack of dogs and one yelps…

    He man is nearly a senior citizen. Why throw rocks in the first place? Especially when living in a glass house. ALL of the Camby stuff, including Hookers, happened on campus at UMass and Cal claims to have known nothing of it. And the list of things going on at Memphis on campus was absolutely insane.

      Because it’s funny to listen to Pitino and UofL fans bark, that’s why. You can keep talking about things that happened at other schools, but while you’re still waiting for it to happen at UK, it’s happening at a school Rick is still employed by.

    Cal originally said he doesn’t believe Rick knew about the hookers and that is what he is still saying and that is that. However coach’s get blamed at the time for things they didn’t know about whether that is fair or not.
