WFAN’s Mike Francesca had Kentucky’s basketball coach, John Calipari, on his radio show on Wednesday. Francesca decided to take a shot at Calipari, saying that he isn’t a good Xs and Os coach–after Calipari had left the studio.

Calipari heard this after leaving the studio and decided to give Francesca a big ol’ “fuck you” by calling into the radio show as “John from Kentucky.” Although he only pretended to be someone else for less than a sentence, Calipari called out Francesca for not having the balls to say he wasn’t a good coach while he was in the studio.

“What are you saying, I can’t coach? Why didn’t you say it when I was sitting next to you?”

Francesca and Calipari then went back and forth for a bit before Calipari told Francesca that people call him “The Magician” for the things he does. While that nickname would really only be cool if you’re trying to impress 7-year-old children, when you can get the recruiting classes he pulls every year, you can go along with whatever ridiculous nickname you want.

Go ‘Cats.

    I’m neutral on Calipari, but man, Francesca has traditionally been a useless sack of shit.
