While talking about the NCAA and all of its problems to Paul Finebaum down in Destin, John Calipari mocked the old “bagel rule” that prohibited a student-athlete from putting cream cheese or peanut butter on a bagel provided by the university.
According to the rule, the bagel was considered a supplementary meal, which was within the meal policy; but cream cheese and peanut butter were considered violations. The limitation was lifted soon after UConn’s Shabazz Napier told reporters during the 2014 NCAA Tournament that he sometimes goes to bed “starving.”
Back to Calipari, he had some fun at the NCAA’s expense, jokingly telling Finebaum that student-athletes were taken to jail if they dared put peanut butter and jelly on a bagel:
