Cal Gets Busted

Well, the reason for good ole Calipari's decision to move to Lexington just became clearer.  While I'm sure a legitimate basketball conference (that he will have no problem winning), a program steeped in tradition and the input of Kige Ramsey closer to his fingertips contributed, there's another obvious answer to why Cal left Memphis.

The Commercial Appeal is reporting that Memphis is being investigated for major rules violations that occurred under Cal. 

If you're too lazy to click the link, the NCAA is accusing Memphis of having an "unknown individual" take the SAT for a player that played for Calipari during the 2007-2008 season.  The NCAA redacted the name of the mystery player Derrick Rose's name from the report.

I have a feeling this case has about as good of a chance as getting Memphis basketball in trouble as the Reggie Bush house scandal does in getting USC stripped of a national title.
