Kentucky coach John Calipari fielded questions about the FBI's investigation into college basketball and things got a little heated when one reporter wouldn't give up.
Calipari did weigh in on the investigation for the first time, saying the scandal reflected badly on college basketball but that the NCAA hasn't reached out to Kentucky.
"What's out there right now is a black eye," Calipari told reporters (via ESPN.com). "None of us know where this thing's going. I don't know where all this is going. Obviously what happened to this point isn't good."
Calipari wanted to shift things back to his team and basketball, but one reporter insisted on asking another question about the investigation. When Calipari attempted to move on, Lexington Herald Leader reporter Jerry Tipton didn't let it go.
“Wait a minute. Wait a minute. This is a media day, not coach day. I am entitled to ask a question. You can then deny or not answer, fine,” Tipton shouted. "The FBI reportedly has expanded into looking at Nike. Kentucky is a Nike school. What reassurance would you give your fanbase, the Big Blue Nation, if they’re anxious about what this could mean.”
The exchange went on from there with Calipari eventually saying, “I have no comment to it. I mean, there’s no one … we haven’t been contacted, the NCAA hasn’t contacted us. We’re going about our business and coaching this team.”
