Mike Francesa Hung Up On John Calipari When He Called In To Defend John Calipari After Appearing On The Show As John Calipari

If this is really truly John Calipari calling into Francesa’s Mic’d Up WFAN program, it’s the coolest prank call in the history of phones.

After making an appearance in Mike’s studio (above), Calipari waited all of eight minutes to call in to the show to debate “the sports Pope” on his criticisms of Calipari’s basketball acumen (e.g. he’s more of a good recruiter than an “X’s and O’s guy”). It was perfect. “John from Kentucky.”


No wonder Coach Cal gets so many recruits to commit to UK, he’s awesome.
