John Calipari has tried to resist some of the major changes that have taken place across college sports in recent years, but the Hall of Fame coach may finally be prepared to wave the white flag on one significant issue.

Calipari said recently that he has no intention of establishing a collective with the Kentucky basketball program. Collectives have become the go-to vessel for funneling money to college athletes now they are able to profit from their name, image and likeness. The idea is to pool money from boosters to create opportunities for players to make money.
