You are really gonna defend Cal as compared to Pearl just because he hasn’t ratted out another coach?!? That is crazy! Coach Cal is and has always been considered one of the most cheatingest (I made up a word there to describe him) coaches of ALL TIME. He and Pitino are besties! Pitino cheated so regularity it bled over into his marriage by gosh! Those two normalized it in modern college basketball. Cal shouldn’t even be coaching today. It is all about the Benjamin's though. This is from an article 10 years old...
Coach Calipari’s list of indiscretions is long and illustrious. In fact, his rap sheet is so damning that it’s amazing the NCAA still allows him to coach. The Final Four berths he earned while coaching UMass were vacated when it was learned Marcus Camby had illegally received payments.
Calipari took a job with the New Jersey Nets before returning to the college ranks to coach Memphis. There, Calipari would have an entire season voided after violations surfaced that Derrick Rose had cheated on his SAT’s and that Rose’s brother had travel expenses paid for by the school.
How is that type of condemning behavior punished? With an eight-year, $31.65 million contract at Kentucky.
Already Calipari has created controversy for the Wildcats, with the NCAA investigating Eric Bledsoe about academic fraud. He’s an embarrassment to the values that the NCAA is supposed to stand for, and should have been placed on probation years ago.
