Kentucky coach John Calipari has been busy lately taking shots at the Duke basketball program. However, during an appearance on the Mike Lupica Show Tuesday, he switched gears and went after Louisville and coach Rick Pitino even though he probably would say that is not the case.

Lupica asked Calipari is a coach should be held accountable by the NCAA for infractions on his watch. Here’s what Calipari said.

“Well it depends on who the coach is. There will be some coaches where everybody will say ‘Well there is no way he knew’. And there will be other coaches where they’ll say, ‘Well he knew what he knew that that happened with that family in the eighth grade. He knew. You know he knew.’ You know it’s all what people are going to say,” Calipari said.

“All I can tell you is this: If it happens on your campus and it happens with your assistants and those people, you probably have a good idea what’s going on. If it happens back in their hometown, it happens back with their family or other ways, there’s no way you can know. You just don’t know.

“So, all I would say is most coaches most coaches have an idea if it happened on their campus.You might not be the first to know about it, but you eventually hear about it.”
Considering what has gone on at Louisville, hard to imagine this was anything but a shot toward the Cardinals.


  1. If the NCAA does not do anything to Pitino, and Louisville, it smells. Louisville will not hold Pitino accountable, that’s obvious. The little penalty they placed on themselves for this violation is BS, and proved they are guilty. It is also nothing more than a slap on the wrists. Louisville wants to win at all costs and could care less how they do it. They have proven that in their hires, and now this sordid behavior by coaches serving under RP.

  2. The football coach they hired proves they have no scruples about anything in Loserville.

  3. I think it could be directed at UNC and Roy Williams too.
