Kentucky Basketball: Coach Cal Receives Good Grades from the NCAA

Here is a story from the AP about the APR for various coaches, and two widely-reviled coaches on academic issues came out looking pretty good -- John Calipari and Bob Huggins:

Calipari also did better than expected, topping 925 each of his final three seasons at Memphis. He had a 980, 1,000 and 960.

And this after all the accusations of ... well, you've heard them all, haven't you?  Let's continue with the not-so-good:

But Connecticut's Jim Calhoun, whose program is under NCAA investigation, had an 844 and 909 after scoring 981, 978, 889 and 941 the previous four years. Tim Floyd, Southern Cal's coach during the O.J. Mayo scandal, had a 949 in 2007-08, the year Mayo played in Los Angeles. The year before, Floyd's score was 804.

Hmm.  Well, you would never know that Calhoun had these sorts of problems if you listened to the media, who has been loath to criticize him even after his entanglement with NCAA issues.  The same cannot be said for Calipari.

Embracing the hate is becoming ever more challenging.
