I don't really have much commentary on this Calipari/Pitino exchange (excellently reported by ESPN.com's Eammon Brennan), except to say, this is exactly the type of heightened Blue vs. Red battle I wrote about a few weeks ago in this post for A Sea of Blue (I link the article because I think it really upset some UofL fans when I originally posted it, and what's more fun than riling up Card fans). I will say this, with these two guys, two guys that genuinely don't like one another, one never knows what compelling and downright entertaining bit of mischief they might conjure up.
Think Cal will have his team ready to rock the Cards' fragile world in Rupp Arena next season? Nahhh. Actually, before that beatdown, I would be for a charity boxing match between Cal and Pitino. Such a bout would pack either Rupp or the Bucket, and it would raise hundreds-of-thousands-of-dollars for a great cause, and man, it would be epic. Never happen, but hey, a guy can dream can't he?
