    $200k for Kentucky recruit???

    Interesting story here.


    The University of Kentucky on Thursday denied a Chicago Sun-Times report that a $200,000 deal was made to get a top Chicago high school basketball player to attend the school, according to a law firm representing the university
    Sources from three separate universities told the Sun-Times that Davis Sr. asked for money in return for his son's commitment, with the amounts ranging from $125,000 to $150,000
    Kid also has one of the worst unibrow I've ever seen.

    I tried to read the article and couldn't due to the picture. I love it! Joe Flacco is jealous!

    Is that a millipede or a facial feature?

    I am shocked. There is absolutely NO way that Coach Cal would ever cheat.

    Maybe he needs 200K worth of shaving cream and razors to cut through the unibrow.

    It shouldn't be long before pyrocyz shows up to tell us that none of this is Calipari's fault.

    If there are sources, wouldn't the newspaper be free from litigation? And if so, wouldn't the newspaper just tell this law firm to go to hell? I think that Kentucky should be more worried about this unnamed source having a sit down meeting with the NCAA than they are about an article being published. I'm sure with the way that Calipari has slithered away from schools before the hammer is dropped, the NCAA would love to catch him in the act rather than punish Kentucky years after he's gone.

    Love this quote:

    Sources from three separate universities told the Sun-Times that Davis Sr. asked for money in return for his son's commitment, with the amounts ranging from $125,000 to $150,000.

    As entertaining as the eyebrows are, the comments from Kentucky fans defending the virtues of Cal and the program are even funnier.
