John Calipari calls Mike Francesa’s radio show to complain about a critique (AUDIO)


John Calipari was on Mike Francesa’s radio show yesterday, and after Cal left, Francesa made a comment saying that Cal isn’t a great x’s-and-o’s coach, that his true strength is his ability to recruit, to motivate and to convince the talent he brings in to buy into the role they need to play.

That’s a fair critique.

But don’t tell Cal that, because Cal immediately called into Francesa’s show as “John from Kentucky” to defend himself.
