Cats head coach John Calipari fielded questions about the ongoing FBI investigation into college basketball. This is a media day, not coach day.
"I am entitled to ask a question", Tipton continued.
That honor belongs to Jerry Tipton of the Lexington Herald-Leader, who was among the reporters pressing the Wildcats coach for his thoughts on the FBI-led probe into the sport.
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. "You can then not answer it".
Calipari: Well again, you're acting like you know something that I don't know.
He then reluctantly said this about any potential involvement by the University of Kentucky and Nike.
"If the National Basketball Association is anxious about the National Basketball Association, if the NCAA is anxious about the NCAA, if each individual institution is just anxious about themselves and the last thing we think about is these kids, then we're going to make wrong decisions", Calipari said. "I have no comment". There is no one, we haven't been contacted, the NCAA hasn't contacted us. "None of us know where this thing's going".
Calipari grew annoyed having answered several questions about the FBI investigation, which has not implicated Kentucky as of now.
That was when Tipton had his question.
After a question about the likelihood of Rick Pitino being fired from the University of Louisville, Calipari said "Look, it's unfortunate, all the stuff that's come down, but let's talk about my team".
