John Calipari Hung Out With Former Kentucky Football Star Bud Dupree At Pittsburgh Steelers Camp

As a Pennsylvania native, Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari grew up as a Pittsburgh Steelers fan. While he is usually more of an NBA Draft guy, for obvious reasons, Coach Cal had to be pretty fired up when his NFL team drafted Kentucky football star Alvin "Bud" Dupree in the first round this spring. Calipari stopped by Steelers camp today at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe (Pa.), and got a chance to hang out with Dupree.

Basketball will always be king at UK, but football has been making strides, especially when it comes to recruiting. We know that coach Mark Stoops appreciates Calipari's support of his program.
