John Calipari Compares NCAA to USSR - Lost Lettermen

John Calipari Compares NCAA to USSR

April 10th, 2014| by

​Kentucky head coach John Calipari didn’t mince words when criticizing the NCAA in his new book, “Players First: Coaching From the Inside Out.”

The book reads:

“The situation reminds me a little of the Soviet Union in its last years. It was still powerful. It could still hurt you. But you could see it crumbling, and it was just a matter of time before it either changed or ceased to exist…. The NCAA will soon have to reform itself or it will not remain the dominant force in college athletics.”

Wait until Calipari compares NCAA president Mark Emmert to Joseph Stalin.
