John Calipari tries to skip question about FBI investigations, reporter demands answer

John Calipari tries to skip question about FBI investigations, reporter demands answer

The best line out of a Kentucky basketball gathering Thursday did not come from coach John Calipari or one of his players.

Calipari: "Look, it's unfortunate the stuff that's come down, but let's talk about my team, please".

"What's out there right now is a black eye", Calipari said.

Calipari is generally pretty gregarious and quotable, at least when he wants to be, but like every other famous coach in America, he's occasionally prone to snapping at a reporter. "It's obviously what's happened to this point isn't good".

Of course, that didn't stop the questions.

On Wednesday, NCAA president Mark Emmert formed a Commission on College Basketball, chaired by Dr. Condoleeza Rice and including university presidents and athletic directors, former head coaches and executives within the sport, and former NBA stars Grant Hill and David Robinson.

"I liked the statement because he mentioned the students", Calipari said.

Students were dismissed, but those who ride the bus were required to have a parent at home when the bus arrived. Several schools in the Elizabeth City area have been since been placed on lockdown .

"If the National Basketball Association is anxious about the National Basketball Association".

Here is the link to watch the entire press conference. I mean, we haven't been contacted.

"We haven't been contacted", he said. Log onto social media, and accusations are thrown all over the place.

However, what's not speculation is the fact that Calipari has a loaded roster this season in Lexington.

Federal prosecutors in NY announced last month that Auburn's Chuck Person, Oklahoma State's Lamont Evans, Arizona's Emanuel "Book" Richardson and USC's Tony Bland were among the 10 people charged following a three-year FBI investigation. And that should be enough to put the Wildcats in the running for yet another SEC regular season crown.

Calipari was asked repeatedly about the FBI investigation that torpedoed rival Rick Pitino, until he grew exasperated and demanded a basketball question.

Blake Lovell is the founder of Southeast Hoops.
