Memphis scandal won’t stick to Calipari

Congrats, Kentucky fans.
You may soon hang another national championship banner at Rupp Arena, but don’t be surprised if you have to take it down someday and sew an asterisk on it.
At least, that’s what history tells us.

The Memphis program has been notified by the NCAA of “major” violations allegedly committed during the 2007-08 campaign, when John Calipari was the Tigers’ head basketball coach.
The school is accused of “knowing fraudulence or misconduct” on a player’s SAT exam and of providing $2,260 in free travel for an associate of a player.
The player in question in the SAT drama has been identified as Chicago Bulls rookie Derrick Rose, according to a source close to the situation.
