Tony Woods looking at Kentucky, Texas

59

Very in-depth piece from Jason King. By the end of the day, though, Woods had spent time not just with John Calipari and his assistants, but with athletic director Mitch Barnhart and university president Lee Todd. "I guess they’re the ones who ultimately have to give me the green light," Woods said. "Hopefully I left them with a good impression." Later in the conversation, Woods became emotional and had to fight back tears. "It sucks," he said. "Whenever my name comes up, [the altercation] is what people associate me with. Hopefully I’ll be able to change people’s opinions. If not, I’ll just take what life throws at me and deal with it."

Report: Former Calipari staffer broke NCAA rules

But forgotten in Calipari’s quick turnaround of Kentucky is a native of this bustling metroplex who was instrumental in the Wildcats’ resurrection: Bilal Batley. Batley abruptly resigned as assistant director of basketball operations/manager after he violated NCAA rules by rebounding for a player during a workout in July 2009. Kentucky self-reported the secondary violation and sent Batley a letter of admonishment. Batley’s job did not allow him to have on-court interaction with players. When he resigned, a team spokesman said he did so to return home because of an illness in his family. But a nearly two-year FOXSports.com investigation revealed that Batley also broke NCAA rules by making repeated impermissible telephone calls while at both Memphis and Kentucky to recruits such as DeMarcus Cousins and their parents.
