    More Shady stuff at Kentucky

    How much longer can this go on. It seems like every player John C recruits ends up with some money problem or grade problem

    "when coupled with his reported 69 on the ACT."

    Re: More Shady stuff at Kentucky

    And yet some people have convinced themselves that the problems at Kentucky are isolated from the problems at Memphis, which are isolated from the problems at UMass. Yet they all have one common denominator...

    I'd check the math teacher/principal's garage and see if there is a Mercedes there.

    Re: More Shady stuff at Kentucky

    The article stated that he got a 69 on his ACT. However, a 36 is a perfect score on the ACT. How did that happen?

    This drives me crazy. People give him a pass everywhere he goes. Yet everytime he leaves the program gets in trouble and vacates wins, etc. Maybe now that hes on top with Kentucky we won't have anywhere to bail to and he might actually have to face the consequences.

    Calipari probably slipped the ACT administrators some dough

    Best descreption ever of Calipari from Tony Kornheiser: "Everywhere he goes, they raise a Final Four banner and they have to take it down 2 years later and vacate every win that season."

    Re: More Shady stuff at Kentucky

    I didn't read the article, but apparently Bledsoe also aced Algebra 3 without taking Algebra 2. That plus the conflicting transcripts (some A's are C's when compared) proves the NCAA cares more about making money than doing the right thing, then they make up for giving these big programs a pass by dumping on smaller schools to make them seem hard on the rules.
