LEXINGTON, KY (WAVE) - Kentucky Coach John Calipari sent out a heartfelt birthday message to his daughter, and his 1.3 million Twitter followers, on Saturday. The only problem: it's not her birthday.

"My birthday is tomorrow. #awkward," she replied.

Calipari attributed the mistweet to the Wildcats' schedule.

"Too many games in too many days," he tweeted.

The No. 1 ranked Wildcats have played four games since opening the regular season eight days ago and will take on Montana State on Sunday, the same day Calipari's daughter actually turns 25.
