Calipari on Pitino, FBI probe - sort of

Calipari on Pitino, FBI probe - sort of

"This is a media day, not coach day", Tipton shouted.

University of Kentucky head coach John Calipari spoke Thursday afternoon at men's basketball media day in Lexington. "We don't even know if what you're saying is true", Calipari snipped.

Calipari: Oh, that makes it true.
I have no comment to it. What's happened to this point isn't good. I mean, we haven't been contacted.

As for the likelihood of facing archrival UofL without Rick Pitino on sidelines.

Calipari: "Look, it's unfortunate the stuff that's come down, but let's talk about my team, please".

On Wednesday, NCAA president Mark Emmert formed a Commission on College Basketball, chaired by Dr. Condoleeza Rice and including university presidents and athletic directors, former head coaches and executives within the sport, and former NBA stars Grant Hill and David Robinson.

Melania Trump Slams Ivana Trump for Calling Herself 'First Lady'
Her comments haven't gone down well with Melania, whose press secretary issued a scathing statement in response. But Ivana's joke has not been accepted as such by Melania Trump who proceeded to release a pretty harsh reply.

"At the end of the day this is about the student-athletes".

A pair of Kentucky's freshman echoed what Calipari said.

"If the National Basketball Association is anxious about the National Basketball Association and the NCAA is anxious about the NCAA - each individual institution is anxious about themselves - and the last thing we're anxious about are these kids, we're gonna make the wrong decisions". "If we make decisions about these kids and what's right for these kids, we're gonna be right". The NCAA hasn't contacted us.

Thursday, the United Kingdom men's basketball team held their annual Media Day, where reporters finally got to ask the team about the uncovering of the college basketball scandal by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

But, as I've repeated over the past few weeks, there are still way too many unknowns to be able to accurately predict where all of this is headed next.

The reference to Nike's potential involvement stems from reports last month that the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League was served with a subpoena.
