"I would have liked to have played and helped, but with coach leaving, sometimes it just happens that way," Williams said.

This guy is the one who is bitter...

I do find it interesting that Calipari was believed to be out of town when all this happened..so he got his asst. coaches to do his dirty work for him??

In the guys defense, I would be pretty pissed too. The University made a commitment to him when they decided to allow him to represent their University. I'm sure he's worked his butt off for however long he's been there to better himself as a student and as an athlete, which in turn reflects, most likely, positively on the school.

And if Calipari did have his assistants kick these guys off the team, then that sure says a lot about him.

"I appreciate Coach Calipari and the staff being truthful with me," Stewart said in a statement. "I want to further my career both academically and athletically at a school where more playing time is available. I know that coach will do anything possible to find a great situation for me."

Stewart had some rocky moments under former coach Billy Gillispie. At one point he quit the team after playing only three minutes against South Carolina, then reconsidered and was allowed to return only after Gillispie met with the team about it.

Why are you sure about that?

Because it would support his stance :)

Since I don't follow Kentucky basketball and was unsure about the player in question, I was just assuming he would have been fulfilling the requirements that would be required of a player with a high division I scholarship.

Now it's possible that he could've had a terrible work ethic and never went to class, but I try to never assume anything bad about someone unless given a reason to.

In Cals defense tho...If that class were coming to NCSU I wouldn't bat an eye at taking a scholarship from some of the guys who haven't positively contributed to the team. It isn't as if you qualify for a scholarship as a HS senior then can loaf, not improve, and expect to hold off a more talented player...

Exactly. There are a ton of students who would love to have the free rides these guys get. The ones who sit on the end of the bench really shouldn't bitch. Now if it's a guy who has worked his ass off to come back from an injury or something like that, then I agree...shame on the coach. But not in this situation.

So waiver wires are OK for anybody but UNC? You guys have ragged Butch Davis from the start about some of the players he's ditched, all the while ignoring the same situations at your school.

    • WaPo isn't partners with the CIA. Amazon Web Services, which sells servers to thousands upon thousands of companies and websites, sold servers to the CIA. You can buy your own now right here. Does that make you partners with the WaPo? https://aws.amazon.com When Jimmy Dore says "600 million dollars is more than the Washington Post is even worth!" he's being a dumbass. The Washington Post didn't make the deal with the CIA so what they're worth is irrelevant. Amazon Web Services sold them servers, and they happen to have the same parent company as the Washington Post. The thing about Jimmy Dore is that he is absolutely utterly obsessed with Hillary Clinton. Like, utterly obsessed. Everything goes back to Hillary Clinton to him, and his obsession has morphed into skepticism of the Russian investigation, because he views it as an excuse for why Hillary lost. He can't accept the Russia stuff being true because if it's true then maybe Clinton didn't lose on merit. And so his skepticism of the Russia investigation has led him down the path of 'well the Deep State is conspiring against Trump' and 'the Deep State is the real true evil.' He fact-checks nothing. It's Alex Jones level poo.
    • Anyone who can equate any modern presidency at any moment in time with the embarrassment we see right now is off their gd rocker. What is really telling is that we now see that Trump can't just be casual.  He can't just talk it up with other peers.  He can't just chill the f*ck out. Seriously....people like this are weird as hell.   It's been obvious he's the head of a business but not a business savvy guy since the Apprentice.  I don't understand why we want the Sharknado meets 80s bad guy of Presidents.
