Calipari tires of questions about FBI investigation at United Kingdom media day

Calipari tires of questions about FBI investigation at United Kingdom media day

Kentucky's Media Day always produces some interesting twists but a few questions Wednesday certainly irked Kentucky coach John Calipari even though he had to know questions about Rick Pitino at Louisville and the recent Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into college basketball were coming.

After generally expressing that whatever results from the controversy should put the interests of student-athletes first, Calipari had a somewhat pointed exchange with Kentucky Sports Radio's Matt Jones and the Lexington Herald-Leader's Jerry Tipton as the coach tried to shift the discussion to his team and the upcoming season.

Whew, now let's get back to talking Kentucky basketball! "You can then not answer it".

The FBI reportedly has expanded into looking at Nike. Kentucky is a Nike school.

"I don't want to come across as uneducated or dumb", Calipari said, "none of us know where this thing is going".

The cheating players implicated in the case will face charges up to $150,000 in "statutory damages", according to TorrentFreak . This is also technically the same number for how many players have won a game as that's the only way you can earn an umbrella.

Tipton: One more question about 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.

"If we had Jarred playing, you could play without a point guard because he could be the point guard".

Calipari: Oh, that makes it true. "At this point, I don't think me commenting on it is the right thing to do". There is no one, we haven't been contacted, the NCAA hasn't contacted us. "How about a basketball question, since it isn't "my day"?" Vanderbilt has been out after suffering a foot injury late last month. One of the men named in the Federal Bureau of Investigation case, Merl Code, left Nike for Adidas more than three years ago.

Calipari better hope his program doesn't become implicated in the corruption scandal the FBI is investigating, because if it does he will probably have to answer more than a few questions about it.
