John Calipari has spent his morning in Bristol, Connecticut making stops all over the ESPN family of networks to preview tonight’s premiere of “All Access: Kentucky”. During his appearance on Sportscenter with ESPN’s Hannah Storm, Calipari responded to a question on the eligibility of freshman center Nerlens Noel by saying, “He’s been cleared to practice. He’s been cleared to play in games. Everything is good to go.”
