The Oregonian released a story over the weekend about former Adidas employee turned government witness in the College Basketball corruption case T.J. Gassnola.
In their article they used a picture that features Kentucky head coach John Calipari, who up to this point hasn’t been implicated in the case.
This certainly appears to be an attempt to somehow link Calipari to the corruption in College Basketball.
NCAA knew about T.J. Gassanola over a decade ago, yet did nothing. NCAA members partner with (sell players to) shoe companies, therefore, the NCAA does it. After all, NCAA is the members. So, what is the NCAA accountability? None. Asleep at the wheel. https://t.co/aSi319tqgI

This didn’t go unnoticed. In fact Calipari’s daughters Megan and Erin called out the story and questioned the use of a picture where their father is the most recognizable face.

We are so far from involved in this that the family even allowed to buy Adidas stuff. #Nike

The Oregonian messed with the wrong family. Nobody comes together like the Calipari’s.
