University of Kentucky head coach John Calipari spoke Thursday afternoon at men's basketball media day in Lexington. The Wildcats coach asked the rest of the reporters in the room if anybody else had any other questions, but Tipton wasn't having any of it.

Calipari: "Look, it's unfortunate the stuff that's come down, but let's talk about my team, please".

Tipton: "You can then not answer ... fine".

That was when Tipton had his question.

Tipton: "That's all I know, right there".

I have no comment to it.

The Tipton exchange obviously got a ton of attention, but the only thing to come out of it was what we already know: Kentucky hasn't been contacted by the NCAA and doesn't anticipate being contacted at any point in the future.

Calipari replied, "We haven't been contacted, the NCAA hasn't contacted us, we're going about our business coaching this team".

"How about a basketball question since it isn't my day".

A total of 10 people, including four assistant basketball coaches at four different schools, were charged in a corruption scandal involving agents, advisors and bribery involving recruits.
