When someone questions Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari's coaching abilities, he's going to defend himself.

Calipari recently did an interview on Mike Francesa's radio show. After the interview was over, Francesa said that he didn't believe Calipari was a "classic X's and O's guy." Calipari took that pretty personally.

Shortly after that comment, Francesa received a call from a "John from Kentucky." It turned out to be Calipari, who initially used a fake voice. The two men quickly got into an argument over Calipari's skills as a coach.

Although not much came from the exchange, it certainly was entertaining.
