    Last time I checked Cal doesn't administer tests or declare kids eligible or ineligible to play college basketball.
    It wasn't his fault that Rose cheated on the SAT. It was Cal's fault if he knew about it and continued to let Rose play.

    It is looking like Cal's two trips to the final four will be vacated because of NCAA infractions.

    Why would Cal have any knowledge of whether or not Derrick Rose cheated on his SAT?

    That sort of infraction would be on DRose's end, not Cal's.

    You think Cal would tell Rose to cheat on a test or assist it in any way? It's clearly on DRose's end, not Cal's. Hell, he probably took the test in Chicago, hundreds of miles away from Cal.

    The way I understand it Memphis knew about Rose and his bogus SAT score and continued to play him. If Cal wasn't involved in any manner I would be shocked.

    That's completely incorrect.

    The NCAA Clearinghouse needs to be held just as accountable as the University of Memphis.

    They failed as well.

    The two guys sitting on opposite sides of Dana Jacobsen on ESPN's First Take show both agreed this morning that Calipari should be suspended for the entire season. I'm not kidding.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    Hahaha ... Skip Bayless should go live in the mountains somewhere and stop bothering people.

    Woody "Mr. UT" Paige will have something to say about it as well I'm sure.

    Mandatory mudslinging by those clowns. Just embrace the hate.

    It's only an interesting story if they're able to bring up Coach Cal and Kentucky.

    Then what is correct? Cal knew nothing about the situation? Continued to play his best, but fraudulent player?

    Where there is smoke there is fire. This isn't the first time Cal has had to vacate a Final Four appearance, and probably won't be the last.

    Try doing just a little bit of research before posting and you'll see how ridiculous what you just posted truly is.

    Also, let us please be fair to Derrick Rose by stating that all of this is only alleged at this point and that Derrick Rose has denied any wrongdoing.

    The Memphis Women's Golf team is facing allegations as well. Maybe Calipari is responsible for those too.

    Yes. Saint Calipari is innocent. It is just bad luck that these things follow him around.

    Now you're starting to get it. Sometimes guys just have bad luck and seemingly always end up in the wrong place at the wrong time. That's what keeps happening to Calipari. He's just been unlucky and misunderstood.

    Never let facts get in the way of jealousy/hate.

    What everyone seems to be missing is that Cal is at one of the flagship programs in the country. There aren't going to be any corners cut at Kentucky.

    Keep on trying to hate though.

    I'm sure IU/Louisville/whomever will use this as an excuse when they lose to Kentucky from here to perpetuity.

    How many violations do Pitino and Roy Williams have? How many does John Calipari have? ZERO.

    I especially love IU fans saying ANYTHING. Their privileges to talk about something like this have been REVOKED for at least a decade.
