Pitino testimony over


After a morning in which Matt described his behavior as “testy”, Rick Pitino has finished testifying in Karen Sypher’s extortion trial. Sypher’s defense team got combatitive with Pitino and dug deep into the events at Porcini’s.  And, though they are not necessarily the types of things you want to talk about in front of a group of people, Matt said that Pitino handled himself well on the stand. Here are a few notes:

– Pitino did admit that he paid the $3,000 for Karen Sypher because she need health insurance and that he arranged for U of L equipment manager Tim Sypher to provide the transportation for an abortion. However, Pitino remained adamant that the child was not his.

– On their physical interaction with each other, Pitino testified that he did not plan on having sex with Karen Sypher, but he also did not protest it.

– Pitino then dove deeper into the actual events of their interaction and said that Sypher asked him if he had a condom and he told her that he didn’t carry them. She told him that “her husband looked at her 4 times and she got pregnant so I pulled out”. The defense attorney then asked Pitino how Sypher could have gotten pregnant if he did not ejaculate. Pitino tesified that he did “down his leg”.

– Pitino then testified that “it is physically possible” that he got Sypher pregnant, but did not elaborate further.

 – The defense attorney also said that Pitino’s financial adviser and attorney had gone together to meet with Sypher’s attorney in March of 2009 and offered a $500k settlement.  Pitino said he had no such knowledge of the meeting.

 – Pitino also got emotional when testifying that he had to tell his son, Richard, to leave Louisville to take another position in order to save himself from “embarrassment and humiliation”.  He told the court the two years they coached together were the happiest of his career.

More from Matt in a bit…

    I don’t like living in the same city with that guy. Can you imagine if you had to support him? Or if he coached your team or something?

    The defense attorney then asked Pitino how Sypher could have gotten pregnant if he did not ejaculate. Pitino tesified that he did “down his leg”.

    In what was probably a $4000.00 suit. The abortion was cheaper.

    And now i’m sad…

    THIS is something that I really could’ve lived without knowing! Ugh…

    if I’m Vinny Tatum, and I’m gonna tweet, my name name on there would be ANYTHING but @vinnygoodtimes. I mean seriously? Is this man retarded?

  5. Epps2Shep

    sitting behind a wall while my boss jizzes on himself sounds like anything but a “good time” to me.

    What #3 said.

    If he was so sure it wasn’t his kid, why cough up $3,000 to someone you really don’t know for “health insurance”? Rick’s fate was sealed when you gave that first 3 grand. After that, she knew she could always get more.

    rick busted his load on his armani suit….lol

    The first verse is basically a detailed acct of the infamous night in Porcini’s.

    ” Ricky down his leg ”

    Doesn’t have quite the same ring to it as “3 stacks”, but it’ll do.

    Butt Secks.

    I was hoping it would be revealed that Vinny was behind the wall with a stopwatch. Instead I get details that made me throw my lunch away.

    Guess we will never know if the ladies in Lexington thought ‘Bravo Pitino’ was an understatement during his time at UK.

    Rick “Sticky Leg” Pitino???

    What man finds himself so lush in the riches of the world that he’d ruin a perfectly good paid of Armani slacks when the Porchini’s bread basket it just a foot away?

  13. asdfasdf

    I just wish it would have gone something like this:

    PITINO
    “I did, … … … … … on her face…”

    KAREN SYPHER
    *pokerface*

  14. catty

    I think it should be obvious to everyone that he did rape her. We have learned that her preferred method of sex is oral, and the she prefers to be the performer.

    When she unzipped his pants, and he didn’t protest-she was getting ready to perform. But he wanted “real” sex, so to stop him, she said “I’m fertile”

    Any married man banging some stranger in a booth at an Italian restaurant will pull out quickly.

    Gotta go, my husband just got home and he wants a rickie.

    Can you imagine the crowds
    in opposing arenas this season?

    “down your leg”,”down your leg”

    They should even give it to
    little Ricky when Florida
    plays on the road.

  17. GeorgeCostanza

    In a week of news that provided us “WikiLeaks”,
    we now have “RickiLeaks”.

    The last two days makes me appreciate the fact that Mitch B was wise enough to pay Clyde to keep all the dirt from being slung about in public and that Clyde was smart enough to take it.

    Bad enough that he is the poster boy for the movie “Gone in 15 Seconds” but on top of that, to drop a wad down his leg he must have been auditioning for a part in “Lake Flaccid”.

  20. Luke The Drifter

    You Louisville residents, if
    you eat at Porcinos you just
    may get the table napkin that
    Pitino used to wipe his leg.

  21. holdmeclosertinydanson

    Maybe he was too drunk to notice her vagina spitting the useless ones out on his leg.

  25. Forthesakeofeducation

    I thought scripting an impressive inbounds play in a 30 second timout was impressive until I now know Rick Pitino can pleasure two women in the same timeframe!

    I bet Quicky Ricky wishes he would have paid her now. My those road games should be lots of fun now.

  30. Calipari'sInYourEar

    “Hello is this Quick Pitino?”

    “This is Rick”

    “…in order to collect all the physical evidence in the case, we’re going to need you to come down to the station for a leg scraping.

    Please bring your drip buckets, I mean shoes, as well.”

  31. billwill431

    Didn’t Pitino coach for the UMASS Minutemen at one point?

  32. billwill431

    well he should of

  34. billwill431

    34. we’re all winnirs today

  35. zman

    I have to give my vote to #15. If what comes of this is that when a couple has ‘little time’ for the ‘deed’, so they only have time for a ‘RICKIE’. I will smile everytime I hear that. :)

  36. Jshuffle

    Quick Rick. Simple yet profound.

  37. catinhat

    From Slick Rick to Quick Rick

  38. SexnNursinHomes

    He paid $3,000 for her health insurance? Yeah, cuz that is what I ALWAYS do when I pick up a cheap skank for a one night stand.

    Damn, others beat me to it. Just noticed that.

  41. UKcat29

    Can’t they request records from the clinic in Cincy to verify how far along she was? Surely that kind of information K. Syper had to give before they could do anything.

  42. AZBlueCat

    Rick’s taking his signature pressure defense and a quick scoring to a whole new level. Shouldn’t he have been called for a 5 second closely guarded…. since it took him 15 seconds……

  43. Indycatfan

    3 Stacks should be able to get a gig for indorsing LEGGS panty hose, no slips and catches all the drip.

  44. billwill431

    If I bleed blue, you got to think Pitino squirts red :(

  45. bhtxcatfan

    Matt hit the big time. His reporting and KSR has made it on Bar Stool Sports.com.

  46. enes

    He should take the money he has made in basketball and fade into the sunset to save further
    embarrassment to his wife and family, but his ego is too big.

  47. Calipartying4Life

    Its only a matter of time before half of these disturbing yet hysterical comments are removed. 22) your a sick man

  48. ukisgr8

    #31, no, it went like this:
    “Hello is this Rick Pitino?”(got to be respectful

    “This is Rick”

    “…in order to collect all the physical evidence in the case, we’re going to need you to come to the clinic. It should only take 15 seconds. thanks”

  49. KaiserSoujay

    Gives new meaning to the description “he dribbled that off of his leg.”

  50. catty

    $3000 for 15 seconds.

    Karen needs to call Heidi Fleiss-That’s $720,000 for an hour!!

  51. UKTRUBLUE

    Think Rick is for implementing a 15 second shot clock?

    Early in 2010 Coach John Calipari was questioned about the University of Kentucky Basketball’s most memorable “day”.

    Later that year, Coach Rick Pitino was questioned about the University of Louisville Basketball’s most memorable “15 seconds”.

    Down the leg, Down the leg, Go Cats Go!

  54. KaiserSoujay

    Anyone seen the new signs on the interstates as they head into Jefferson County?

    “Welcome to Louisville. Home of the fastest 2:00 in sports, and the fastest :15 in sex.”

  55. Gaytor Hater

    I hope Quick Rick realizes that you don’t have to spooge in a woman to get her pregnant. He had unprotected sex and that automatically nullifies his “down the leg” theory. What a shell of man Rick has become.

  56. bogeyboy99

    I’m cryin’…you guys are killing me…

  57. barn

    don’t see how rikkie can come back for another season and face everbody after this. too bad. the rivalry between him and coach cal was good for all fans.

  58. kyeric

    I gotta agree, 58.

    How is there any possible chance for normality in your personal life, much less professional, with this type of stuff being aired?

    I think Pitino knows that this testimony and the coverage will most likely bury his career. Possibly in as little as 15 seconds.

  59. SexnNursinHomes

    59- well, one thing that won’t stop rick from coaching is “sex”, i mean this guy has had umpteen affairs, std’s, abortions, quick leg, i very seriously doubt a trial will stop this man. when you are on a roll, you don’t stop.

  60. GODSAZNO

    she should have accepted the $500,000 settlement!

  61. billwill431

    I guess its the Louisville has the KFC Cum down your leg center. instead the Yum center

  62. nlk
  63. Calipari'sInYourEar

    Good, next trial will be the Commonwelath of Kentucky vs. Louisville fan who punched Matt Jones

    I can’t wait to see that one!

    Since they talked about it on the rivals website (a server that most likely is located across state lines), if any of those individuals actually assualts Matt, you’ll have all kinds of charges that could be filed state and federal.

  64. hugecatfan1

    So Pitino used the dribble drive?
