Calipari responds to Mack: “See you December 26th. Can’t wait!”

For anyone who thought the UK-UL basketball rivalry was on the brink of extinction, Calipari has a few words for you…

After Louisville Men’s Basketball head coach Chris Mack took to Twitter on Tuesday night to backhandedly state that he wants “what’s most convenient for John [Calipari] and his program”, his in-state coaching counterpart was quick to the counterpunch. John Calipari didn’t waste long responding, tweeting out that he will “See you December 26th. Can’t wait!”

Mack initially stoked the controversy after recently hopping on a podcast to express his disappointment in the upcoming Kentucky-Louisville matchup potentially being played without fans, questioning the fate of the game entirely. Calipari didn’t take long responding to that, either, stating that Kentucky is “prepared to come to Louisville to play this season”. Mack took the beef to another level with his thoughts from Tuesday night and we all knew Swaggy Cal would have some words for it.

See you December 26th, coach Mack.

    In the words of Captain Tenneal: “Get it on!”

      Let’s get it on indeed. Not having fans there will save them the embarrassment of watching the beat down in person. At least this way they don’t have to pretend to be excited about next year or football season on their way home after the game.

    This rivalry needs to end. It is a joke. UofL is no competition and not worth the discussion. We don’t need Indiana and don’t need the Cards either.

    And I thought Trump and Biden would be providing all the sparks today.

    Why mack thinks that having their trashy fans there will help his team is beyond me. Honestly living in Louisville I wish we would end the series and add a new team to play instead of them. It has been years since beating them actually helped us.

    I haven’t really been following this because I thought it was just about the dates. So Mack is upset because they play in Louisville this year and they won’t have fans? Tough $#!+!! Sorry about your luck. Everybody has to deal with this. Regardless if you move it to a neutral court they will still have to play at UK once in the next three years. So what’s the problem?

      Wouldn’t the Yum with no fans be a neutral court? Mack doesn’t seem to understand that.

      Rg, believe his cry is for neutral court this year, then Yum crowd next yr, Rupp after that. Basically push home/home back a year.

    Mack has quickly turned into an idiot. Must be in the Louisville air or something that impacts peoples brains.

      Maybe he’s been wearing a mask for the last 7 months, that seems to affect people’s brains.

    Mack for push back from the UL base that’s why he reversed course and gave a lame ass excuse. We will see you and we beat the lights out of your team.
