Kentucky Basketball Concedes To NCAA In Dispute Over John Calipari's 500th Win

John Calipari has coached NCAA basketball teams to more than 500 wins during his career. He's reached multiple Final Fours. These things all happened, but the Kentucky Wildcats have agreed to pretend that they did not, conceding to the NCAA that they'll play along with the concept of Calipari's various redacted wins.

A month ago, the NCAA sent a letter to UK lamenting the school's Feb. 26 recognition of Calipari's 500th career win. The correct number, accounting for wins stricken from the record books, should be 467. If you'd like to read the correspondence between the two institutions, Cats Illustrated has posted copies of the letters.

Various scandals committed during Calipari's time as coach of the UMass Minutemen and Memphis Tigers have thus given UK the chance to celebrate coach Cal's 500th victory all over again. Won't that be fun!
