    The same private donors who provide bennies to the players no doubt.

    Legal bennies.

    At this point, it's pretty easy to see why kids want to play for Calipari. It's not being slipped a thousand bucks or something silly. Actually, what I love about the players he attracts, is that he warns them they'll hate his guts and wish they had never come. He explains 3-a-days over Christmas break, etc. They come to be pushed harder than they've ever been pushed .. and, admittedly, to get NBA ready as fast as possible.

    I guess the school didn't need to help debt ridden students.

    The athletic program gives back millions per year to non student-athletes. And the school didn't pay for this stuff .. all private donations.
    Keep the hate mail flowin' bros.

    Must work better there than at UI. They dump all kinds of money into the stupid footall team and the Geology department doesn't even have a building.

    So you're admitting he slips them a thousand bucks..."or something silly"? I suppose Bentley's fall under the latter.

    No .. I'm saying that's the kind of stuff small-minded haters accuse him of .. when it's not hard to see why 5star kids want to go to a place that will let them play early and often, get in front of scouts every game, have top-notch facilities, and be networked into the NBA from day 1. It's not that hard to figure out. Think about it.

    Sort of like how all the 5 star guys wanted to go to USC to play college football. Yeah, sort of tough to imagine why.

    And it has nothing to do with being small-minded. I know for a fact his mom drove a Bentley to his HS graduation. A fact you know nothing about supposedly. You know everything about the program but not this?

    Ignorance really is bliss.

    Link? (I thought not)

    Your small-minded hate only further fuels my already cbb elitist mentality.

    This is one of the biggest problems with our society.

    We put so much more investment into entertainment than into education or health care.

    Not arguing with you, as I agree .. but in this case, none of the money came from taxpayers, but private donors. AND, the athletic dept is giving back millions per year toward non student-athletic scholarships and non-athlete facilities. In this case, the facilities are paid for privately and the University is funding education.

    I suppose the bigger problem is with US, as individuals, and what we choose to spend our extra money on .. but that's a debate for another thread .
