Reporter checks Kentucky Wildcats' John Calipari during FBI investigation question

Reporter demands answer from John Calipari in heated exchange'This is a media day

Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari said on Thursday that he has not been contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation or the NCAA regarding the current scandal that has rocked college basketball.

Tipton's question came after Calipari already had emphasized that he'd rather talk about his program than the investigation, or the fallout at other programs, specifically that of Louisville. Credit to Tipton for insisting on asking his question. I am entitled to ask a question.

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.

Quade Green, a freshman guard, said, "We can have Hamidou play the point guard, have Shai play the point guard, have Jarred even Jarred's hurt but when he comes back he can play the point guard, and there's so many lineups you can go to". There's going to be a time where I'll say, 'Here are some things I think we need to do.' It'll probably be on CoachCal.com where you can read it. There's no one - we haven't been contacted, the NCAA hasn't contacted.

These new forms are called Dusk Mane Necrozma (in the case of Solgaleo) and Dawn Wings Necrozma (in the case of corrupted Lunala). The trailer strongly hints that this ability is only available for the in-game storyline and not in any sort of competitive play.

When Tipton reiterated the news had been "reported", Calipari responded, "Oh, that makes it true". "I have no comment". As much as coaches don't want to address the situation, questions will come up. How about a basketball question?

The press conference continued for another 35 minutes focusing on the upcoming season. One of the men named in the Federal Bureau of Investigation case, Merl Code, left Nike for Adidas more than three years ago.

But, if I was a member of the Kentucky media and had to deal with deflections in the midst of a massive, all-of-college-basketball-encompassing scandal, I would get frustrated, too.
