John Calipari Tweets Message About The Sweet 16

Coach Cal addresses the media.

The Sweet 16 is here. Kentucky is in it.

The No. 5-seeded Wildcats appeared to be in one the toughest region in the NCAA Tournament before the games began. A lot has changed since.

The No. 1, No. 2, No. 3 and No. 4 seeds have all gone down in the South Region. UK is now the clear favorite to make the Final Four.

John Calipari isn't getting cocky, though. He says Kentucky is still in a "tough region."

"Forget the seeds. Everybody is 0-0 that’s moving forward and it's not about seeding; it's about who is playing the best. We are in a tough region," he wrote.

Here's the full tweet:

It won't be easy, of course, but Kentucky should advance to the Final Four. As the tournament has proved, though, anything can happen.

Kentucky is set to face Kansas State in the Sweet 16 on Thursday.

Tipoff is scheduled for 9:37 p.m. E.T. on CBS.
