Kentucky coach John Calipari annually is a hot name as the coaching carousel turns. His name pops up with all sorts of newspaper stories, about openings here and there, pro and college. The most recent report attached him to the New York Knicks.

Although he doesn't know the "unnamed sources" in such stories, he says he has a pretty good idea of how to describe those sources: Rivals. As in, he says the sources are opposing coaches trying to gain an edge in recruiting by helping create a picture of instability around Calipari.

"They can't say I'm going to take another college job, which my whole career they've been saying," Calipari told reporters this week. "I was involved with any job that was open, that would be out there. Now, it's only pro jobs.

"Part of it is to screw up your recruiting. I laughed when the newest rumors came out because I said, 'You're not screwing up our recruiting because we already have these kids signed.' Those rumors are going to be out there. I've got a great job, one of the best in our sport. I can't stop the rumors."
