Reporter calls out John Calipari: 'This is a media day, not coach day'
The FBI investigation that has rocked college basketball continues to heat up in the past few days, and it has quickly become the No. 1 thing on every college basketball fan's mind.
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. Louisville head coach Rick Pitino was placed on unpaid administrative leave. He got a specific question about if he'd miss the rivalry with Pitino.
Whew, now let's get back to talking Kentucky basketball! Does anyone here have a question about my team?
That was when Tipton had his question. Calipari wanted to talk basketball and was trying to steer the questions in that direction.
"This is media day, not coach day", Tipton said when Calipari attempted to wave him off.
"I am entitled to ask a question", Tipton continued.
Calipari: "Ask it. OK".
However, Tipton makes a fantastic point when he says that he has the right to ask it even if Calipari refuses to answer.
Calipari was asked about reports that the FBI has expanded its investigation into Nike, the shoe company that provides United Kingdom with millions in athletic gear. Kentucky is a Nike school. "What reassurance would you give your fan base, the Big Blue Nation, if they're anxious about what this could mean?"

The film is speculated to being directed by Teja but no details pertaining to the actors and actresses have been revealed yet. As speculations are that the movie will get released in October just before the elections, however, the actor refused.
"I don't want to come across as uneducated or dumb", Calipari said, "none of us know where this thing is going". "Do we know if it's true?"
Calipari: Oh, that makes it true.
The exchange went on from there with Calipari eventually saying, "I have no comment to it". Other than confirming the NCAA has yet to contact Kentucky, Calipari said the situation was unpredictable and grew defensive when the media kept asking for the answers he didn't have. We're going about our business and coaching this team. How about a basketball question?
Federal prosecutors in NY announced last month that Auburn's Chuck Person, Oklahoma State's Lamont Evans, Arizona's Emanuel "Book" Richardson and USC's Tony Bland were among the 10 people charged following a three-year FBI investigation. Nike responded to the reports by stating its commitment to fair play and noting there had been no allegations involving the company.
