John Calipari was not happy about answering questions about the FBI's investigation into college basketball, but one reporter would not be denied from asking.
For almost ten minutes of his 45-minute press conference, head coach John Calipari was asked about his opinion on the matter.
The best line out of a Kentucky basketball gathering Thursday did not come from coach John Calipari or one of his players. So we were really interchangeable. I am entitled to ask a question.
Tipton: "You can then not answer ... fine".
UAE follows Qatar and Kuwait lead and terminates North Korea diplomatic mission
More than 1,000 North Korean laborers are reportedly working at construction sites and elsewhere in the UAE. North Korean laborers working overseas are one of the major sources of foreign currency for Pyongyang.
As Jerry Tipton of the Lexington Herald-Leader asked a question on the topic of the Federal Bureau of Investigation after that request, Calipari pointed to another reporter who had a question, signaling to get their question instead of the first one. "What reassurance would you give your fan base, the Big Blue Nation, if they're anxious about what this could mean?" Do we know if it's true?
Tipton: "That's all I know, right there".
Tipton: "John, one more question about the Federal Bureau of Investigation".
"I don't want to come across as uneducated or dumb, none of us know where this thing is going", Calipari said. We don't know what you're saying, if it's true.
NCAA "could not conclude North Carolina violated NCAA rules"
The allegations included a lack of institutional control, failure to monitor, and extra benefits in association with the courses. The NCAA enforcement staff countered in a July filing: "The issues at the heart of this case are clearly the NCAA's business".
Calipari: "Well, that makes it true". After pleading to talk about his team, Kentucky.com reporter Jerry Tipton had one more FBI-related question for Calipari, and when the Kentucky coach tried to avoid the question, Tipton refused to back down.
"I have no comment", Calipari said.
"I have no comment to it, we haven't been contacted, the NCAA hasn't contacted us, we're going about our business of coaching this team". "How about a basketball question, since it isn't "my day"?"
While the injury to Jarred Vanderbilt isn't ideal, this Kentucky team has depth and versatility at many key positions.
