Kentucky Wildcats head basketball coach John Calipari had some interesting things to say in his new book. Per reports, Calipari compared the NCAA to the Soviet Union for not changing with the times.

"The situation reminds me a little of the Soviet Union in its last years. It was still powerful. It could still hurt you. But you could see it crumbling, and it was just a matter of time before it either changed or ceased to exist," Calipari writes, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Calipari said he had some ideas to help fix the NCAA, but was denied.

"I think we could have gotten somewhere with me as the point man, but the NCAA was not interested in my help," Calipari said, according to the WSJ. "The message I got, between the lines, was, 'No, not you. Not Calipari. We don't want him involved.'"

Pretty interesting stuff. It's definitely going to make his book a must-read.
