By and large, the NCAA is a largely exploitative conglomerate by failing to pay the athletes whose schools bring in unfathomable dollar amounts each year. John Calipari is the one coach who exploits them right back. So why is he loathed by so many?
For those of you who are smart enough not to keep up with my whining on Twitter, I live in the Albany, New York area. This means that I'm somewhat close to Syracuse, which means that I've been bombarded with nothing but HOT TYLER ENNIS TAKES since his decision to turn pro. All of you should shut the hell up this…
Jim Boeheim is one of the best coaches in the history of college basketball. Tonight, he lost his cool on a controversial offensive foul call, getting two technical fouls and an ejection in the process.
