John Calipari wanted to talk Kentucky basketball, not the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe

SEE IT: John Calipari tries to skip question about FBI investigations, reporter demands answer

Thursday, the United Kingdom men's basketball team held their annual Media Day, where reporters finally got to ask the team about the uncovering of the college basketball scandal by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. This is a media day, not coach day.

He then asked a question prompting Calipari to deny any backroom dealing with Nike, since Kentucky is a Nike school and Nike was named in the FBI investigation. "You can then not answer it".

Calipari allowed Tipton to ask the the question, which ended up being somewhat of a softball, an easy opportunity for the coach to reassure his fans that Kentucky had done nothing wrong. 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.

Tipton: The FBI has reportedly expanding into looking at Nike.

"I don't want to come across as uneducated or dumb, none of us know where this thing is going", Calipari said. "What reassurance would you give your fanbase, the Big Blue Nation, if they're anxious about what this could mean". The Wildcats coach asked the rest of the reporters in the room if anybody else had any other questions, but Tipton wasn't having any of it. "I have no comment". "The NCAA hasn't contacted us". Calipari wanted to talk basketball and was trying to steer the questions in that direction. Credit to Tipton for insisting on asking his question.

After a question about the likelihood of Rick Pitino being fired from the University of Louisville, Calipari said "Look, it's unfortunate, all the stuff that's come down, but let's talk about my team".
