Tom Izzo came up with a really good response to John Calipari calling Tuesday's impending matchup between No. 1 Kentucky and No. 2 Michigan State "unfair" to play for Calipari's young Wildcats this early in the season.But first let's take another look at exactly what Calipari said about the game to serve as context.“The issue becomes playing teams (like Michigan State) this early is not fair for my team,” Calipari said Thursday. “It may be fair for everybody else. But it’s no fair for my team. …It’s just not traditional in the sense everybody stays four years. So it’s not fair when we walk in and everybody else is more experienced.”Well, Izzo fired off his response on Friday.Izzo on John Calipari's "no fair" comment: "I agree, I think he should forfeit. If Johnny doesn't want to play it, I'll take a win."— Joe Rexrode (@joerexrode) November 9, 2013More Izzo on Cal: "I think he’s trying to fool you media guys -- I know and you know you’re too smart for that. But John must not know that"— Joe Rexrode (@joerexrode) November 9, 2013Tuesday can't come soon enough.Via For the Win
