LOUISVILLE, Ky.-- Chris Mack says it was a joke that went sideways.  

The Louisville basketball coach is addressing a viral video that shows him and former Cardinal football player Eric Wood celebrating the team's win over Kentucky last December.

Mack says the video was meant as a joke to former UofL player Kenny Payne, who was also an assistant coach at Kentucky.  

When the video hit social media over the weekend, Mack says he called UK coach John Calipari to explain his great respect for Calipari and the Kentucky program. 

The video shows Mack and Wood in the coach's home, not wearing masks. Mack says "it was not a good look. I've got to do better."
