You’re responsible Rick Pitino. These excuses by you are reprehensible Rick Pitino.
YOU maintain COMPLETE CONTROL of your program as the head coach. YOU are the general manager. You are the CEO. You are the team president.
Minardi Hall is NAMED for your family Rick Pitino so what do you mean you did not know what was going on there ?
Your football team is made-up at Louisville of our DISCARDED PLAYERS here at Georgia whom we KICKED-OFF the team here. You have NO indoor practice facility but a joke of a partial one where you can only run through a couple of plays only and is not a complete football field even.

We are KEEPING Rick Pitino AGAIN. Look at your coaches. Rick Pitino and Bobby Petrino. Good heavens. You have NO CREDIBILITY Louisville. This is REALLY BAD for the ACC.

Rick Pitino is # 29 all-time of NCAA collegiate basketball head coaches in winning percentage. He has a sordid history with the public.
Rick Pitino became head coach in 1975 at the University of Hawaii. That is 42 years ago.
As head coach at the University of Hawaii Rick Pitino committed eight (8) violations of NCAA rules for which the University of Hawaii was put on NCAA probation. The violations involving Pitino included providing round-trip air fare for a player between New York and Honolulu. And arranging for student-athletes to receive used cars in return for Hawaii season tickets. And handing out coupons to players for free restaurant food at McDonald’s. Rick Pitino was cited by the NCAA for providing misinformation to the NCAA and University of Hawaii officials. The NCAA infractions committee recommended that Rick Pitino be disassociated from Hawaii athletics. Rick Pitino – then as now – said : “I didn’t make any mistakes. I don’t care what anybody says.”
August 1 of 2003 at Louisville Rick Pitino ADMITTED he had sex at a restaurant called Porcini with the wife of his Louisville equipment manager. Rick Pitino also admits that he paid $3000 three thousand dollars for the abortion. “The complete sex took no more than 15 seconds” according to Rick Pitino. Rick Pitino called a press conference and stated that the press “stop reporting these lies.” Rick Pitino made a statement that he apologized for THIS indiscretion. Louisville kept him on anyway. The University of Georgia would have FIRED Rick Pitino after he apologized and stated “it took no more than 15 seconds.”
Once you apologized for your personal public indiscretion you called it Rick Pitino just what sir do you mean that the press ” stop reporting these lies ? “
Rick Pitino’s reputation is what it is. And his cover-up EXCUSES are legendary.
The ACC is taking it on the nose over this as is the University of Louisville who has NEVER had a good reputation as a university in the first place as these ON-GOING issues with Rick Pitino and Bobby Petrino prove. And you snatching-up our discarded kicked-off football players has NOT HELPED you EITHER.
