The Memphis men’s basketball program has been charged by the NCAA with major violations during the 2007-08 season under former coach John Calipari. The Memphis Commercial Appeal first reported the story on Wednesday after obtaining a letter detailing the allegations through the Freedom of Information Act. The allegations include “knowing fraudulence or misconduct” on an SAT exam by a player on the 2007-08 team. The wording of the letter to Memphis indicates that the player in question competed only during the 2007-08 season and the 2008 NCAA tournament. The player’s name was redacted in the letter due to privacy laws. Sources told ESPN.com Wednesday night that Derrick Rose was the player in question. He played only one season for Memphis before being selected as the first pick in the 2008 draft by the Chicago Bulls. -ESPN

I am sure if they didn’t change the rules, Rose would have skipped the SAT’s and gone right for the pros. Fuc* David Stern. -TO
