I'd say most of the top teams in basketball do some dirty recruiting. Cal just does it the best and gets out before the NCAA gets in.
I am shocked that an Ohio State fan would say such a thing.
Calipari actually doesn't have any history of major recruiting violations. I have no doubt that he breaks rules, just like I have no doubt that any of the top programs break the rules when it comes to recruiting.
Anthony Davis @AntDavis23
What stores are open right now that sell Mac's??
Someone got there sweet 16 bonus!!!
His birthday was not too long ago.
So he got his bonus AND a nice bday gift from coach, haha.
College bball is the dirtiest. I'm sure every major program does it, just like in football.
Kentucky bball fan?
Ironic that a guy named CWEBB is posting in this thread.
Your a retard.
I'm going to start a thread about time-outs.
Sampson is dirty, but Gordon didn't get paid to come to IU.
Really? He cannot be this indiscreet.
Tell that to Illinois fans.
(For the record, I don't think he did either.)
Funny how fans of a program that have been in serious trouble with the NCAA in both major sports in the last ten years and persecuting Cal. For all the football fans of big time schools why don't you look in the mirror. Much more cheating goes on at your schools in football recruiting. Thinking otherwise is downright niave and stupid. Have fun hating the bball Cats!
Why not know just a little about what your saying before making yourselves look like ass clowns? UMASS got in trouble because Camby was talking to an agent...fact. That had NOTHING to do with recruiting in any way, none whatsoever. Rose cheated on a HIGHSCHOOL test...HIGHSCHOOL. He was cleared by the NCAA to play college ball. Again, that had NOTHING to do with Cal. Not one single "expert" or talking head blamed Cal. I don't even recall anyone saying this punishment was validated or justified. There was no way Memphis should have been punished after the NCAA cleared the kid to play.
I guess Cal forced Camby to secretly work with an agent because obviously that benefits him so much.
As for Rose, I guess Cal himself was the one who snuck into Rose's HS disguised as a teenager and took the test for him, then paid the NCAA and he clearing house to clear him to play.
Honestly, you people keep calling Cal a cheater so I ask any of you, explain to me EXACTLY what Cal did to cheat. How about someone, ANYONE, actually give an example of how he has "cheated" , an actual specific example, rather than your "uhhhh Cal...uhhhh cheater...uhhhh no fair...uhhhh..." because that's EXACTLY what your garbage translates into to even halfway intelligent people that know actual facts about such things.
BTW, its truly hilarious to read some of these posts when the teams your username is associated to have been busted recently....stay classy haters.

To all of those who think/feel that Cal is dirty and UK is going down (due to scandal) soon: I truly don't blame you.
With the stranglehold that Cal and UK have on top tier talent at the moment, I would be praying for anything to bring that to a close if I were in your shoes.
LMAO at this thread. You guys SERIOUSLY need to find something else to do. How the hell anyone from OSU can talk shit is beyond me? How is the sweater doing these days? Yeah... Tommy hit the nail on the head. I would love to see some of you explain with facts how Cal has cheated. If anything Cal proved that the NCAA is a MASSIVE joke with Rose debacle. Of course when UK is spanking your ass and taking every headline I would bitch moan and complain too. There are 2 reasons why a kid like Anthony Davis comes to KENTUCKY 2,051 and 7.
It smells like microwaved homeless people in here.
HAHA you need to understand that situation a little more. When he got that recruiting class his first year those kids were already going to Memphis except for John Wall (undecided). And when Calipari left DeMarcus Cousins was called by reporters and he said that he would go to whatever school Calipari was going to (which was the case for many of the players). All those players wanted to play for Calipari and thats the truth. I cannot see Calipari cheeting at UK; he could have with John Wall but he sat out untill it was all cleared by the NCAA. Also, with Enes Kanter; Calipari did not allow him to do anything that would be considered cheating all season. He and Kanter went through the entire process together and it just so happened that the NCAA said he could not play. How is that cheating?
Also, Calipari does do what every other college basketball coach does. Some say he is dirty but right now in the eyes of the NCAA the school athletic departments and the school administration (not John Calipari) are the ones at fault! You can say he was involved all you want but to the people who decide if he is at fault in the situations; they don't seem to think so.
It's good to be on top.
"Kentucky Football needs to be and will be a championship contender in the SEC."~Mitch Barnhart 11/4/12
That's what she said.
Hey, put together Cal's personality and the #1 program in the nation, this is what you get. Hater's gonna hate, that's just how life is and I totally understand. It's the same way I feel about many of the football schools in the country, particularly the SEC.
Hey "ezel4" (yeah you... the jealous prick who started this thread).... How long was it before your mother got caught cheating? Fathers Day must confuse the helll out of you.
Screw the high road.... I fight fire with fire.
To hell with all of you jealous douche bags.
BTW... just so you understand where I'm coming from::
1. douche bag:
somebody who you think is a complete retard and doesn't know anything about what they're talking about.

Big Swingin' Dick Envy: The coveting of a large penis by men with small wee-wees. Leads to feelings of inferiority and defensive or compensatory behavior.
I feel like I'm reading something from the Twilight Zone. I thought we lived in a country where a person or institution was innocent until proven guilty.
If any of you have specific facts then state them.
Please man-up and stop "casting stones." Gossip kills the spirit of the gossiper, not the person being talked about.
Case in point: I watched a great basketball game between Syracuse and Ohio State. The person announcing the game for CBS, at games end, just had to mention Syracuse problems with allegations of child abuse by a former coach, team drug policy violations, and a players academic ineligibility (2 times this year). They also mentioned The Ohio State's problem with football sanctions. QUESTION: now what does that have to do with the the great player effort and display of great coaching just witnessed? ANSWER: absolutely nothing.....it was shameful as is some of the no-balls, lack of back bone comments being stated on this thread. To you gossipers; please have some respect for yourselves and the schools you represent.
Now, to those of you who still don't get it: call me all the names you want, but most likely you haven't read this far. You probably already typed out another rant of gossip and hate.
