“I’m not worried about it because they have never said Coach Cal did anything wrong at all. I think he’s a very upstanding guy. I think that’s his reputation and I think that reputation will be with him here. I really don’t foresee any problems.” — Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear
Memphis has to vacate its 38 win season that brought it to the men’s basketball Final Four in 2008. Just like my UMass had to vacate its victories in its one-and-only Final Four season in 1996. (L’affaire Marcus Camby.)
Both teams were coached by John Calipari, who departed Memphis and UMass just ahead of the long arm of the NCAA.
Former UConn athletic director Lew Perkins tried to warn me way back when, but I was blinded by the light.
Good luck, Kentucky. Calipari at UK and Pitino at Louisville. Wow, wow, wow.
