Mick Cronin Denies That He Was In Confrontation With John Calipari

Over the last few days, a story about Kentucky head coach John Calipari accosting a rival head coach has been doing the rounds online. Kentucky Sports Radio believes it has discovered the unnamed coach: Cincinnati's Mick Cronin. Cronin went on the radio today with WLW's Lance McAlister to discuss his Bearcats. When his interview was announced, fans made it clear that they wanted answers about the Calipari story.

While it doesn't sound like Cronin was asked during the interview, he clearly knows that the story is floating out there, and weighed in on Twitter afterwards.

We may never know if the story is actually about Cronin, but he could have easily ignored the questions altogether.
