Calipari Zings Cards on Rivalry Week

It's rivalry week for college football, and Saturday will find the Kentucky Wildcats clashing with the Louisville Cardinals for the Governor's Cup.

Kentucky head basketball coach John Calipari was in the mood for some razzing of the Cats' arch-rival during his press conference on Tuesday.

The UK boss, who just released a new book titled "Success Is The Only Option," spoke about the challenges of promoting it while coaching the No. 1 team in the nation. Eventually, he was asked if he was aware that assistant coach Kenny Payne had yet to read the book.

"He went to Louisville," Calipari quipped. "He doesn't read."

Calipari may have more room to rib the Cards than his football counterparts. He is 8-1 against Louisville, while UK head football coach Mark Stoops has lost all three of his matchups with Bobby Petrino's squad.
