    My guess is that’s a pittance to get rid of a head ache. Probably the advice of counsel

    Which isn’t 100% true. Who was responsible for Reggie Rose traveling with the Memphis team?
    While Cal was innocent on the SAT stuff, the violation from Reggie Rose is on him.

    Fixed.

    And one more time.

    "The NCAA did not find Calipari guilty of any violations during his tenure as coach of the Tigers."

    Your link says it clear as day. I can't make it any clearer so no need trying.

    Not according to the NCAA.

    Again, thanks for the link.

    Academic probation not athletic probation, which is something UK fans know all about.

    Academic probation is worse in my opinion. Shows the whole process was a sham. And the NCAA didn’t find UNC “innocent”. They agreed academic fraud had been committed but they lacked the power to enforce penalties

    Technically, they took Memphis' wins and final 4. But you knew this. Calipari's wins was a by-product.

    "The NCAA did not find Calipari guilty of any violations during his tenure as coach of the Tigers."

    Have a great day with your life's mission/crusade.

    I mean, that doesn't sound all that good, TBH...Just saying. Look, all Rose had to do was basically say, "Yeah, I was the one who tool the test....Take a hand-writing test....And poof----Problem solved. Me? I'd wanna clear my name...my school and my coach. But thats just me.

    Well, obviously Rose didn’t feel that way and Cal was ok with it. To be honest, if I’d been cleared twice and they started that shit I’d tell em to kiss my ass too.

    But would u have been ok with it if you were Cal. To have your achievements belittled, your name tied up in vacating seasons, when it could have been cleared up in a few hours it Rose did take the allegedly fraudulent test. I’d say Cal didn’t want Rose to cooperate, as opposed to not caring if he did or not. But that’s just my opinion.

    Good point. As an optimist, it could have been worse. I’m just glad it wasn’t hookers and paying players.

    Touche. Although the players who refused to cooperate were never actually proven guilty by the NCAA. Is that argument still valid lol

    I don't miss Nicholasville at all. It's probably one of my top ten wst places to live. Was back in the late 90's

    I remember some loved it, but the really were the worst kind of WASP.

    Not that Wasp were bad. the place just sucked.
