On Gilchrist: How Do You Compete With The Devil?

By now all of you know that Michael Gilchrist committed to Kentucky yesterday.  I could go on more about how I didn't want him, but that doesn't matter for the sake of this argument.  The problem lies with John Calipari, who has never left a college without its program being placed on NCAA probation.  From Derrick Rose's lack of SATs to Memphis' curious hiring of Milt Wagner after his son DaJuan committed to Memphis (which curiously isn't an NCAA violation.)  Also in Calipari's corner is the curious case of William "Worldwide Wes" Wesley for those unaware of Worldwide Wes, all you need to know about him is that high school players he's been affiliated with (Rose, DaJuan Wagner, Tyreke Evans, John WallGilchrist) nearly exclusively sign with Calipari.  If my father, a Villanova alum is not allowed to steer a recruit in Villanova's direction, then why can William Wesley repeatedly send guys to Calipari  with  little or no consequence? All this boils down to is an even playing field and it's clear that whatever they are doing in Lexington is just downright grimy.
