What rivalry? John Calipari and Lamar Jackson pose together in NYC

@UKCoachCalipari

John Calipari stayed in New York today to make the media rounds to promote his new book, and while in the green room before his appearance on “The Dan Patrick Show,” ran into Heisman winner Lamar Jackson. The two posed for a picture, which Calipari posted on Twitter with the caption, “I know some of the BBN is going to be mad I took this, but what a great kid. And he’s the Heisman trophy winner!”

Cal added, “I did ask Lamar, ‘Do you have to come back another year?!”

This shouldn’t make any UK fans mad. Lamar Jackson is great, and we really owe him for that fumble on Louisville’s final drive.

    Better for Lamar to hang out with Cal rather than Johnny Manziel.

    Thanks for the memories, Lamar! It’s always a joy to beat a Heisman winner.

    Not mad at Lamar at all..He made a big play for UK to win the game.

    After hearing his Heisman speech, it’s hard to not like the guy. His Heisman pose in the end zone against UK was a punk move, but he had sufficiently paid for it by the time the game ended.

      Think he struck the pose at least three times vs. UK.

    Congrats to a great young man. Well deserved.

    Football in Kentucky is on the rise.

    Not mad at all, just a little puzzled. Johnny Football and Cal? Not who I would have expected him to meet up with in NYC. Hopefully, Cal cautioned him to stay far away from Manziel.

    And I think the mad U of L fans will far outnumber the mad UK fans.

    Great pic. I can’t stand U of L, however I don’t hate on Lamar… he’s great and you can’t pass up a photo opportunity with Lamar or Cal for sure. Cal is a superstar, I wonder if even he understands how big he is. What will coach Cal do after UK? Politics?

    I agree; I really like Lamar. If it wasn’t for his ineptitude, UL probably wins that game.

      But if it wasn’t for his greatness, UL wouldnt have been a top team and the win wouldn’t mean nearly as much.

    Why in hell do we owe lamar, that is just plain stupid. Absolutely rediculous to say such idiotic words. And I’m glad as hell he has to come back, so we can beat his ass again.
