Coach Cal Tweets Message For Kentucky Fans Ahead Of NCAA Tournament

John Calipari wasn't too happy with Kentucky's NCAA Tournament draw last night. The Wildcats' head coach thinks his team got screwed.

"I was in the car and my phone blew up. I didn't know there were so many different ways to say, 'You got screwed again,'" he told ESPN.

Calipari continued to rant while speaking to reporters.

“Is ours like the toughest again?” Calipari asked. “Like, by far? Is anyone in here surprised? We’re not playing on Thursday, right? Because we just got done playing today.

We’re playing on Thursday? Oh, but we’re close?” (reporter says they’re in Boise). “Anchorage or Boise? It is what it is. They’re not going to make it easy for us, and they can all say, ‘This is all by the numbers and all that.’ OK.”

Coach Cal appears to have gotten over it. He took to Twitter earlier today.

Kentucky's coach has a message for his fans.

Kentucky, a No. 5 seed, is set to take on No. 12 seed Davidson in the first round. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. E.T. on Thursday night.

The game will be televised on CBS.
