I don't follow college basketball. I don't know much about it and I don't know much about Calipari. With that said I've seen him talk a handfull of times and I can smell the stench of corruption on him. I don't know what he's up to, but he's up to something and I'm confident that eventually some huge scandal will reveal itself.

Perhaps I'm wrong but time will tell.

Lot of dirty recruiting/academics (in high school and even at some colleges) going around these days.

One of the top recruits and probable one and done players, Rodney Purvis still isn't cleared to play at NC State. Apparently he "graduated" from his diploma mill now getting investigated, but didn't technically graduate or something.

It's crazy shit, what a lot of these top recruits go through. Wouldn't shock me of some of these kids haven't done a piece of school work in their life before college. Ever read Play Their Hearts Out? Most of those kids had ZERO chance to grow up with any stability. Future NBA talent is not enough.

There's a CBS poll with nearly 100 college coaches and today's question was, Which player's recruitment is perceived dirtiest of past decade?

It's interesting to see which players show up and the common ground between many of them.

John Wall's was always pretty fishy. I was surprised when Cal locked him up, especially as early as he did. Decent read, wish they would have put in more quotes though.

So sad how greedy these grown men are Taking advantage of kids...

Thats why I believe that when these players get recruited to college they should have a guaranteed scholarship that can't be taken away from them no matter what & a stipend for the year. And they should be able to hire agents while in school and start making money off of their image immediately...

Maybe you people should learn to read

the questions are about his relationship to a high school coach, who may have paid for unofficial visits to MULTIPLE schools, not just UK. Mostly to Syracuse, actually.

this has nothing to do with Calipari or Kentucky

Wow- two interesting articles. As a UCLA fan that doesn't look good, it was so exciting but strange to see such great recruiting success.

1. These guys are why the nba shouldn't try to force all players into a year of NCAA - its not helping anybody from the players or the schools

2. Is there a chance that the players coming to LA are more through connections to pro agents where as the Kentucky guys are more through connections to the school? Are they pro agent connections or boosters from specific schools?

Kentucky is not and will not be implicated in any wrongdoing. The questions about Noel stem from a relationship to a high school coach, and are regarding visits he made to several schools, not just Kentucky.

That article right there talked about Davis going to Kentucky for 200 grand and wall choosing Kentucky over some other grand gestures by Baylor. Right?

yeah, people say a lot of bullshit

When UNC and Duke were signing anyone they wanted in the early to mid 2000's, no one said a thing.

But the winningest program of all time with the best recruiter in the country does it and surely it must be shady.

We don't cheat, UK sells itself. 5 star players literally beg for offers. We didn't pay for Davis and Wall chose Kentucky over Baylor because we're Kentucky and they're fcking Baylor.

Yeah, the fact that he has a history of leaving programs decimated have nothing to do with it at all.

While I acknowledge that Cal probably doesn't cheat (as much) as he had to before, let's not turn a blind eye to appropriate suspicion.
