PTI talks about the John Calipari/Mick Cronin story


Few stories have blown up this summer like Gary Parrish’s about John Calipari confronting a coach who spread rumors about him cheating a few years back. We now know the coach was Mick Cronin and the recruit Cronin was upset over Cal stealing from him was Marquis Teague. After we posted the story on KSR Tuesday night, it got national attention, becoming the most viewed story on and

Tony Kornheiser and Jason Whitlock even brought it up on PTI yesterday afternoon. Here’s what they had to say:

Calipari making PTI in the middle of the summer for a story that’s several years old? Sounds about right.

    I hope it was true, but regardless, that was the best 2:13 in PTI history.

    I think most every coach generally knows this to be true about Cal. Apparently, Cronin did not, and made the mistake to bad mouth Cal. Good for Cal for pointing out the obvious!

    I like that Cal held him accountable for running his mouth with no evidence and then called him out.

    Cronin, dude, two different ballparks. He probably said Angelina Jolie was pretty much his girl, right before Brad Pitt “stole” her.

    Cronin better watch out, Cal with that Italian temperament might decide to send Luca Brasi to pay Mick a visit.

    so KSR saying “they now know” who the story was about, I guess they traveled back the original story a couple years ago on their very own site.

    and taking credit for it going national? wow…how lame.

    Mick Cronin is a horrible person, he texted messages for recruits not to attend Murray State after he was leaving to take his current position, while using a cell phone provided to him by Murray State. Then he was stupid enough not to delete them from the phone when he turned it in. His language was so foul during practices that they would have made a sailor blush. Sad to say he was my neighbor at the time.

    I think both coaches are dirt bags, but most of them are. All of them are over paid.
