Calipari shared his thoughts on a very controversial topic last week, taking a position of not only conference expansion but of the creation of "super conferences," containing 16 to 18 teams, one each in the north, south, east and west. He further proposed that these super conferences separate themselves from the rest of the NCAA.
The move, Calipari believes, would enable this new governing body to distribute more television and advertising revenues to the schools that are most responsible for generating it. Calipari also proposes more money to be allocated to covering the expenses of the student-athletes who draw the crowds and television viewers.
"It should happen. And it should happen for women, too," he said. "That's why I say again the four leagues. You now generate enough to do a living expense for all athletes."
