Jerry Tipton fired a shot back at John Calipari today

cal-jerry

John Calipari and The Herald-Leader’s Jerry Tipton will occasionally go back and forth with one another during a press conference, like boys do. Just some playful, harmless banter while talking sports. No big deal.

But today got vicious when Calipari told Tipton that Kentucky can lose to anyone in the country.

Tipton fired back with, “And you’re proving that.”

BODY BAG!!!

Here’s he whole clip with Cal’s response:

    Usually dislike Tipton but this was hilarious.

    And sadly Cal has proven Tipton right.

      And sadly, Cal has also led us to 4 of the last 5 Final Fours….

      But you keep focusing on the anomaly.

    No that’s funny, did Cal laugh, smile or tell him to go himself. Any one know?

    Hey, if you’re going to include a video that suddenly increases by 4,000 decibels, please provide a warning. I nearly had a heart attack, plus everyone in the office came to see what was up.

    Cal’s Teams would be much better if he wasn’t such a system coach and coached to his teams strenth. His in game adjustments are terrible.Well there is none

      This shows you have no basketball sense. Since Cal has gotten to UK this team is the closest thing to the dribble drive offense that he so loves to run. Each year he has changed his entire system to fit the team. Again I reiterate you have zero basketball sense.

      Chris truly doesn’t know what the hell he’s talking about.

    Burnam you are a true idiot or you just have no clue about basketball. He switches his style up every season. We have only seen glimpses of the dribble drive.

      Burnam is a troll. Do not try to argue with idiots.

    Blowing a 21 point lead and losing to a dreadful UT team doesn’t mean Cal won’t tweak us to another 8 seed and a FF. Let’s be patient and confident in his tweakery abilities.

    Deadpan Jerry got in a good one. Hard to argue with that…

    i would have told him that was ok, but he’s no not jerry tipton. (that comment probably sounds pretty strange if you’re not on twitter.)

    Touche’! But, I would like to have heard Cal’s response instead of the screamers.

    Weird edit of this video. I want to see Cal’s response to Tipton’s wiseassery. Instead this video just supports Tipton and his classless response. Shame Drew Franklin, Shame!

    Cal owns his job and Jerry does too. Some good give and take is healthy and keeps both on their toes. Cal is brutally honest to the point at times of sounding flipid. Let’s face it from what most of us have watched it’s any ones final four that gets hot and can stay consistent. Right now we are consistently inconsistent. That won’t do no matter how those two sound off at each other. Who will show for a very tough FL game? We have lost two in a row so…ask Vegas.

    I don’t think Tipton is going to get any exclusives any time soon.

    He should be over in Louisville uncovering the filth that he’s so wishing could be in Lexington.

    Sometimes I think Jerry Tipton and crazy Jock Southerland were brothers……….One’s about as big a jerk as the other….Jerry has made it His life goal to take down the Cats. If there ever was a top secret about UK and some sort of wrong doing.. Jerry Tipton would sell His Mothers soul to the devil to be the first sports writer to release that news,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,If I’m on that UK staff, Tipton would lose His press pass to all parts of Rupp Arena….
