John Calipari tries to skip question about FBI investigations, reporter demands answer

Graduate of University of Delaware.

As always, fans are curious as to what the Wildcats will look like for this upcoming campaign, but Coach John Calipari gave the Big Blue Nation a preview at Thursday's UK Basketball media day.

"With all this stuff", Calipari said, "for me to spend my time today on all this stuff, I just don't want to do that".

"You're acting like you know something that I don't know". "None of us know where this thing's going".

Since news of an FBI investigation into corruption in college basketball broke on September 26, 10 people have been arrested, including four assistant coaches.

As for the likelihood of facing archrival UofL without Rick Pitino on sidelines.

"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".

Calipari said no one has reached out to Kentucky yet regarding the federal investigation. The NCAA hasn't contacted us.

And finally, this on the NCAA's plan to form a Commission on College Basketball.

Calipari said any changes to the sport needs to focus on the student-athletes.

However, Tipton makes a fantastic point when he says that he has the right to ask it even if Calipari refuses to answer. "There are a lot of players of different levels, of different abilities". How we're being fair, I'll leave that up to the powers-that-be.

"When you step him back off, you're not quite as interchangeable because probably one of those two point guards you're going to play or both of them at points in the game. You figure out how you make this work".
