UK has not been contacted by the FBI, will conduct internal review

In the wake of three former and current Kentucky players being linked to the FBI’s investigation into college basketball, UK President Eli Capilouto says the school will conduct an internal investigation of the allegations facing the program. Per the Herald-Leader, UK was notified of Yahoo Sports’ report last night.

“We learned late last night of a report from Yahoo Sports that provides more details regarding documents related to the federal investigation of potential NCAA violations,” Capilouto said to the UK Board of Trustees Athletics Committee, which happened to be meeting Friday morning. “We began immediately to conduct our due diligence and we will cooperate fully with any appropriate authorities. That is our commitment as a university to our Board of Trustees and to the Commonwealth.”

Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart said UK has not been contacted by the FBI, but has reached out to the NCAA and SEC.

    It’s good that Capilouto and Barnhart are proactively reaching out to the NCAA. But, so far, I haven’t seen anything to get concerned about as long as Sandy Bell did her job. It’s possible that folks who have been complaining lately about Calipari’s recruiting “dropoff” and Duke’s “dominance” may be about to get a new perspective on the matter.

    “Internal Investigation” – AKA we’ll be burning and shredding documents for days.
