Kentucky coach John Calipari and Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson together in a photo on Twitter — and enjoying it?
Yes, it happened today when the two were both guests on the Dan Patrick Show in New York. Jackson received the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night in New York and Calipari stayed over after UK beat Hofstra Sunday afternoon in Brooklyn.
“I know some of the #BBN is going to be mad I took this, but what a great kid,. And he’s the Heisman Trophy winner!!” Calipari posted on Twitter along with the picture of the two of them. Calipari also joked on Twitter that he asked the sophomore if “you have another year to come back?” to Louisville.
Maybe some UK fans were upset. But those two tweeted me seemed fine with Calipari and Jackson together — and should have been.
