John Calipari wanted to talk Kentucky basketball, not the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe

SEE IT: John Calipari tries to skip question about FBI investigations, reporter demands answer

John Calipari should know an internal scandal when he sees one.

During Kentucky's media day on Thursday, Wildcats head coach John Calipari said no one has contacted the school regarding the investigation. "The NCAA hasn't contacted us".

When one reporter refused to let up on the issue, Calipari returned the heat, making it clear he wanted to talk about his team. Because, well, it technically is a "media day, not coach day".

"I'm just happy I'm not involved in it, or anything here at Kentucky", forward Wenyen Gabriel said when asked what he thinks of the investigation.

However, Tipton makes a fantastic point when he says that he has the right to ask it even if Calipari refuses to answer.

As Jerry Tipton of the Lexington Herald-Leader asked a question on the topic of the Federal Bureau of Investigation after that request, Calipari pointed to another reporter who had a question, signaling to get their question instead of the first one. Calipari likely sensed a rumor spreading and immediately shut it down. We don't know what you're saying, if it's true.

When Tipton reiterated the news had been "reported", Calipari responded, "Oh, that makes it true". A recent Los Angeles Times report did suggest more arrests are coming, though.

On Wednesday, NCAA president Mark Emmert formed a Commission on College Basketball, chaired by Dr. Condoleezza Rice and including university presidents and athletic directors, former head coaches and executives within the sport, and former NBA stars Grant Hill and David Robinson. In 2009, the NCAA ruled Memphis must vacate the entire 2008-09 season, including its runner-up finish in the tournament, after then-Tigers guard Derrick Rose allegedly had someone else take his SAT for him.
