The NCAA is Coming For You Calipari and Crean

Probably about 10 years too late but it seems like the NCAA is looking to use their enforcement powers to go after these third-party folks associated with agents and AAU clubs and their anonymous donors. I'm sure there will be a legal challenge to it down the road but the anecdotal evidence seems pretty compelling. Not sure whether the NCAA will be able to shake these cockroaches out from their hiding places or whether they will find another way to skirt the regulations. Calipari basically admits in the article that this stuff took place under his watch at UMass and Memphis but now that he's at Kentucky he doesn't need to go down that road any longer. Well..... As for the other nefarious part of the problem of hiring coaches from AAU programs, if Tom Crean hasn't established some quid pro quo as a result of hiring Drew Adams (son of Mark Adams, head of Indiana Elite AAU: see: Ferrell, Hollowell, Jurkin, Patterson & Perea) and Kenny Johnson of DC based Team Takeover [who by the way is still listed on their website as Vice President/Assistant Director/Head Coach of 16s] (see: Victor Oladipo, Maurice Creek, Stanford Robinson, Beejay Anya, Phil Booth, etc.) then I'll be a Clappy's Monkey Uncle.
