Calipari, Memphis facing major allegations

32 posts in this topic

The allegations include “knowing fraudulence or misconduct” on an SAT exam by a player on the 2007-08 team.

The report does not include allegations of lack of institutional control

The wording of the report seems to indicate the player in question only competed during the 2007-08 season and specifically the 2008 NCAA tournament.

The only player on the roster who competed only during that season was Derrick Rose

Calipari... is not named in the report, but the NCAA has requested his presence at the hearing.

So, it appears Derrick Rose cheated on his SAT's in high school... who's got the pitchforks and torches??

Here is what we know for sure about John Calipari according to John Calipari...

-His star play at UMass is hooked up with an agent...BUT HE DIDN'T KNOW.

-His players have houses full of furs, jewlery, and hundreds of dollars to throw at strippers...BUT HE DIDN'T KNOW.

-He allowed more agents into his practices at Memphis even AFTER the Camby incident...BUT HE DIDN'T KNOW.

-He has the most notorious street agent in America securing recruits for him...BUT HE DIDN'T KNOW.

-One of his star players cheated on his entrance exams...BUT HE DIDN'T KNOW.

So from this we can assume one of the following:

A. John Calipari is the dumbest human being on the planet earth.

B. John Calipari is about as ethically upstanding as Don King.

C. John Calipari is a liar.

D. Both B and C

If this is proven to be true, then I hope they penalize Calipari along with Memphis, because you know that he had to know that what all was going on.

Why did they put Calipari's name in the headlines? UK put out a release this morning saying that the NCAA has cleared Calipari in this, and that he was forthcoming about it when they interviewed him.

As far as the opening poster's list of things Calipari "didn't know" about, that poo goes on at most college programs. Sorry to be the one to tell you. John Wooden is one of the most honest coaches ever (once described as "so square he's divisible by four" by the great columnist Jim Murray), yet there was a booster who for years lavished Wooden's players with the kinds of things the OP describes.

STATEMENT FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY:

First and foremost, there are no NCAA allegations against UK Head Men's Basketball Coach John Calipari. Coach Calipari was forthcoming with the University of Kentucky during the hiring process about any issues under investigation at the University of Memphis at that time.

It is normal procedure for the NCAA to ask a former coach to participate in a hearing. Therefore, Coach Calipari will participate as requested.

Coach John Calipari has received a letter from the NCAA stating that he is not at risk of being charged with any NCAA violations in this case.

This is a University of Memphis issue and the University of Kentucky will not comment any further.

JOHN CALIPARI:

"Even though I'm not at risk, I will fully cooperate with the NCAA hearing. Beyond that, I concur with the statement from the University of Kentucky and will have no further comment."
