    Dirty Coaches? How would you react as a fan.

    Deep down Kentucky fans have to know that their coach is dirty, either that or they are just completely delusional. I know they would never admit to Calipari being dirty, but pretty much everyone knows something is amiss. Hell other coaches are even calling him out on it. My question is this. Does the championship still mean the same to you as a fan if you know your coach is probably dirty?

    I know if Calipari was at ISU I would never admit to it, but deep down I think the championship would mean a little less to me. Thoughts?

    I know the game isn't over, but yeah it pretty much is.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Dirty Coaches? How would you react as a fan.

    Well, one of my UK fan friends posted "We deserve this!!! Go cats!!!" right before the game started. So I think the answer is no.

    Re: Dirty Coaches? How would you react as a fan.

    Given what he did to the last two schools he was at...I'd be concerned.

    Didn't finish my sentence. No, they don't care.

    PS. I'm hoping this post sparks an amazing comeback for KU. God, I can't believe I just typed that.

    Yes, Calipari should have never approved Rose's ACT score and allowed him to play. Oh wait, that was the NCAA Clearinghouse which did that.

    I think UK fans are convinced that Cal is clean.

    You'd think Cal could have just once between him and Davis, slipped a wax strip in with his $100 handshake?????? Come on!!!

    John Calipari, The First Honest Pimp

    That really changed how I view Cal. All the big programs probably have shady stuff going on. I think Cal understands the problems in the system today and openly exploits it.

    Quite an understatement. Read up:

    NCAA vacates Memphis' '07-08 season record, Final Four run - USATODAY.com

    I'm sure Cal had no idea this was going on with Rose, or Camby for that matter.

    What's the scandal in the article? That his brother traveled with Memphis a few times? That Rose didn't help the NCAA investigation after he was already in the NBA?

    The NCAA approved Rose's test scores, allowing him to play. Then later ruled him ineligible and cleared Calipari of all wrongdoing. How does that fall back on him?

    You don't see a pattern of recruiting star players who later fall into disfavor with the NCAA? Camby took benefits from an agent. Rose essentially cheated on the SAT and had his brother getting benefits. Anthony Davis has been reported as receiving $200,000. None of this comes back to Cal? Please.

    Having Rose's brother travel makes Cal a dirty coach? What a recruiting advantage!

    Rose cheating on his SAT? He had a ton of other offers. Whatever school he went to would of been screwed.

    Camby taking money from an agent? Again that ain't Cal's fault. Camby was a bonehead and took the money.

    As for the 200k, I don't think there has been anymore on that since the piece from a year or so ago.
