Wearing your rival’s gear? What is Coach Cal doing?
Kentucky basketball fans should take a second (and if that doesn’t work, how about a third and fourth) look at the latest Louisville Courier-Journal photo.
Because that’s not UK coach John Calipari; instead it’s Louisville’s David Winkler, a big Cardinals fan.
Winkler looks just like Coach Cal and gets mistaken for him on a regular basis. All things considered, he doesn’t mind.
“It’s all right,” Winkler said in the Fletcher Page story. “He’s not a bad looking guy, so I’ll take it as a compliment.”
Winkler’s allegiances will not be in doubt Wednesday night when the basketball teams meet at the KFC Yum! Center.
He is a season-ticket holder for Louisville football and gets thrown up on Kiss Cam once or twice a year, drawing boos from his comrades.
“They don’t think, they react,” he said.
