Title: I wonder...

...just how tightly Calipari's bung hole is puckered about now.  The news through this afternoon, including Pitino and Pearl, is a result of the adidas investigation.  Now the DOJ has subpoenaed similar documentation from Nike. 

This could be really, really fun before too long.

not much IMHO   I am sure he has cheated since he got to Kentucky BUT  don't think he has to in the last several years.  I am talking about the funnel them money type cheating.  Same with Saban at Alabama, the give them money days are not needed at some schools anymore.  Duke basketball is in that same boat.

I see what you're saying to a degree, and looking at Kentucky's message boards they're full in on the "KY doesn't need to pay, recruits are lined up to play for them".  Then again put yourself in the shoes of a top ten recruit:  I can go to Kentucky and be one and done and be a top draft pick and make millions of dollars, or I can go to school X, be one and done make millions of dollars AND get maybe 200K RIGHT NOW.  Sorry, I don't see top recruits waving off that kind of $ just for the honor of playing for Calipari.  Makes no sense whatsoever.

he had to do something to get Monk out of Arkansas. And you don't believe it was just a buisness decision do you?

He would have to get busted through an agent if it were to happen.

He pioneered this stuff so don't hold your breath. At most an assistant would get implicated.

He's well insulated from the shady dealings, but he knows.

So if I offer you $100k to play at Fla you are going to Kentucky to play for free?
