Mike Lupica doesn’t think Calipari took a shot at Pitino

Screen Shot 2016-06-21 at 9.49.35 PM

Mike Lupica was on SportsCenter this morning when he was asked about his recent interview with John Calipari — you know, the one where Cal may or may not have taken a shot at Rick Pitino.

Well, Lupica doesn’t think it was a shot at Pitino at all. He insists he was asking a generic question of what coaches should and shouldn’t know, and Cal responded with a general answer.

I didn’t think he was taking a shot at Rick Pitino,” Lupica said. “At North Carolina, they thought it was about Roy Williams. At Syracuse, they thought it was about Boeheim. So on that level, I guess it was a good question.”

Lupica went on to say, “I don’t think he thought he was amping up this feud between him and Pitino. He was answering a question.”

    Wow, Hannah Storm, way to ask if Cal “is in a position” to ask that question of Rick. I’m pretty confident that having hooker parties hosted at a dorm on campus named after Rick’s brother-in-law is not the same as Cal getting a player who was later reported to have had an ACT issue in high school before he ever stepped foot on campus at Memphis.

    So yeah, given that Cal said coaches should know what happens ON CAMPUS, I’m pretty sure he’s in a position to call Rick out, even if Lupica doesn’t think he was.

      Was Rick taking the high road when he flipped off fans in Rupp last year?
