Kentucky Basketball Writer Reminds John Calipari That Media Day Is About The Media

|

Here’s something you never see: a member of the college basketball media not only standing up to John Calipari, but putting him in a goddamn body bag. You know how well Cal uses the media for promotion and recruiting and basically anything else he wants. You see him sitting at that ESPN desk on draft night when all these recruits are watching. He bullies the media on the regular to get what he wants.

So today they were discussing the FBI investigation into college basketball. Cal obviously is trying to avoid that as best he can and cuts off Jerry Tipton, who comes back with the ether, big J style. It’s not “coach day”, it’s “media day” and he was getting that question in one way or another.
