John Calipari fires back after Louisville fan’s unique insult
The college basketball rivalry between Kentucky and Louisville is one of the most heated in sports, and John Calipari has grown accustomed to being berated by Cardinals fans over the years. However, an insult that was hurled his way this week appears to have crossed the line.
On Tuesday morning, Calipari spotted a Louisville fan on the set of NBC’s “Today” show holding up a sign that read “JOHN CALIPARI HATES PUPPIES GO CARDS!!” As a proud dog owner and lover, the Wildcats coach just had to respond.
Nothing a Louisville fan has EVER said to me has ever bothered me but this one got to me a little bit. McGruff and Palmer were so mad that they came to my office to ask me about it. pic.twitter.com/EE0BlqtKxD

Calipari typically doesn’t have to defend himself on social media because his daughters take care of it for him, but the man is clearly serious about his fur babies.
