It’s no secret that John Calipari is a Steelers fan.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are currently playing the Miami Dolphins in the AFC Wildcard round of this year’s NFL Playoffs. Guess who’s in town.

Just 14 hours following a win against Arkansas, Coach Cal is taking a break from basketball to enjoy some playoff football. There’s nothing wrong with that!
It’s currently in the second quarter, with the Steelers in command over the Dolphins, 20-3. Former UK defensive end Bud Dupree started at linebacker for the Steelers, as he has one tackle and one hit on the Miami QB so far. Look for Dupree to continue his pressure inside the pocket.
Speaking of former UK football players, Randall Cobb is listed as questionable in today’s playoff match-up between the Packers and Giants. Cobb is still expected to play, and will be a much needed target for Aaron Rodgers in the playoffs.
As for Coach Calipari, he will return to Lexington tonight to rejoin the basketball team. There will be a walkthrough practice, followed by a team dinner. Earlier this morning, as Calipari was in route to Pittsburgh, the Wildcats held a weight lifting session.
Update: Bud Dupree

Too much time around James Harrison, perhaps?
