Since Boob Knight's declaration that Calipari is doing a disservice to the NCAA and student-athletes, Kentucky's GPA ranks in the top ten percent of all NCAA basketball schools that have released their team GPAs.
It's funny how some in the national media completely ignore these facts and run with their own agenda instead. As for Bobby Knight, he long ago should have been institutionalized in a combination old folks/anger management facility. By far the worst and most obviously biased analyst in the sport.
