Congratulations to the UConn men and women’s basketball teams, which both advanced to their respective national championship games to be played on Monday and Tuesday night. Here a couple of UConn stories from the Hartford Courant with sports business/sports law connections:
A realist who deals with college athletics as they are, rather as people want them to be, a sincere authority figure, a cagey coach or slick seller of snake oil, Calipari’s definition is in the eye of the beholder.
I’ve often seen Calipari as a realist and recall that he was willing to provide recruits with an escape clause from the National Letter of Intent which would be triggered if he left the university (he was at Memphis at the time). The NCAA subsequently revised the NLI to prohibit such a practice.
