NEW ORLEANS -- John Calipari said he has never watched a replay of his Memphis team's overtime loss to Kansas in the 2008 NCAA title game. He can't.

Calipari doesn't own the tape.

"It was flung out the door of the bus as we were going to the plane," Calipari said. "So I have never looked at that tape. Nor will I."

Bill Self isn't sure the story is true. But whenever the Kansas coach hears it, his response is always the same.

"I'll tell him, 'I can remind you exactly what's on it,'" Self said. "We joke about it. It's all in good fun."

Maybe for Self and the Jayhawks, but what occurred inside San Antonio's Alamodome on April 7, 2008 has haunted Calipari for the past four seasons.
