Seems that Jim Calhoun is about to be named as a responsible person for some of the shenanigans that the University of Connecticut has been accused of.

"I didn't want the game to be one where I had to go put players back in the game or anything like that," Calipari said on Monday's Southeastern Conference coaches' teleconference. "I'm working on psyche here, too, now."
