    I wouldn't have been UK paying the $200k, it would have been WWW, and if you think he can't afford to pay that kind of money to recruits, you better think again.

    Calipari doesn't help himself at all when he associates with guys like Wes, it just calls his reputation into question even more than it already has been. If he was smart, he'd cut all ties with that guy forever, it's not going to lead him down a pleasant path.

    Do you know World Wide Wes, Red4Life? Have you met him?

    If not, why cast aspersions?

    And, as for WWW leading Cal down the wrong path, he's been around WWW for more than a decade now and all he's become is on of the top five coaches in the NCAA and its top recruiter.

    Yeah. He's also become the only coach in NCAA history to have Final Four's stripped from multiple schools because of violations to.

    I think we've gone through this before. I know we have. So, either you don't listen or you choose not to.

    Either way, one more time:

    Calipari's first Final Four was vacated because Calipari himself went to the NCAA with the Camby/ agent situation. The second was vacated after the NCAA itself vetted the player in question.

    Neither were Cal's fault. At all.

    Caliapri has NEVER been implicated in any recruiting scandal. Ever. He's been named in less infractions than Roy Williams, Jim Boeheim, or Rick Pitino. As far as the NCAA is concerned, Caliapari is as clean as any coach in America.

    Who, pray tell, is your best friend, Cowboy? Because, as hard as it is to believe, sometimes, people make up relationships. PM me if you'd rather not tell the world.

    Still on his record my man. The official books show 0 Final Four appearances, which were stripped due to violation of NCAA rules. Period. That is a fact.

    As for Cal's involvement, I don't know, and neither do you, but the record books speak for themselves.

    Yes, we do know because the NCAA itself said Calipari was NOT implicated in any wrongdoing in either case. Both had to do with playing ineligible players only. Both were ruled ineligible after the fact.

    Sports fans get extreme denial when their favorite team hires a player or coach. I'm a diehard Bengal fan and I have already forgotten all the dumb stuff T.O has done.

    It's just the nature of sports. You defend someone until they burn you.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Sigh.

    Not my favorite team nor coach.

    But I HATE it when "fans" dog coaches and universities without a shred of proof. Calipari gets a bum rap when other coaches who do the same thing (and worse) get clean bills.

    Roy Williams has cheated, gotten caught, and the world of basketball fans believe him clean. Coach K has been caught doing exactly what Calipari did, yet he's somehow a paragon of virtue?

    Do I think Cal is clean? Of course not. Then again, I think ALL Division I coaches are dirty.

    Yes, inquiring minds want to know (and I am an inquiring mind).

    Either way, a reputable source would have likely caught it. That much money exchanging hands would probably have ESPN covering it.

    I said earlier in this thread, Kenny Payne is the one who deserves the credit if UK gets Davis, not WorldWide Wes.

    Reading comprehension is obviously not your strong suit.

    Sorry, this doesn't compute.

    Top 3 recruiter? Yes.

    Best recruiter? Possibly so.

    Top 5 coach? No way, no how.

    I do agree that there's no way Cal or anyone is promising Anthony Davis $200K.
