    High reward, but super high risk. NCAA just started on UofL’s latest issues and not sure if Pitino more involved. Plus, if he gets in any trouble at St. John’s in short term, AD and even President likely to be fired for taking such a risk. Rick cost Jurich his job.

    So when the NCAA comes down on U of L , who’s to say the ncaa won’t place a show cause on Rick P, and if he were hired by a program in the near future how does that work .

  3. E Cat

    Risk in UofL’s second investigation not completed. And if he gets in trouble at St. John’s, AD and even President would likely be fired.

    Getting turned down by Mike Anderson would be the signal to give up… On basketball.

      I was going to say even being in a position where you are considering offering Mike Anderson, but yeah.

      Yeah might be time to shut the basketball program down.

    I don’t get it, isn’t St John a good place to build a program.

    1. nocode96

      I think so. It’s a perfect place for a super young coach to go to right now. If the powers that be could be patient and not fire him after 2-3 bad seasons, someone could build their own coach K type legacy.

      With NYC’s plethora of talent and prospects, no doubt it’s a good job. Say what we want about Pitino and St. John’s risk involved but with his northeast ties, and hall of fame coaching ability, he’d have that program consistently in the top 25 in year 2 and title ‘talk’ year 3 or 4 at most.

      Pitino might not last one year much less two. He’s one hooker under the table of an Italian restaurant away from a lifetime ban.

    4. IndianaSucks

      I haven’t followed it that much cuz that’s not my coach or program but I’m not sure that he’s been directly connected to anything in the NCAA’s eyes. And he’d have to be a complete idiot to try anything again if that were the case.

      St johns is a dump!

    NCAA says “not a good idea.”

  7. rickwhitetx

    You are joking about Pitino, right TT?

  8. kentuckybackupplayer

    If they hire Pitino they will have to take the Saint out of their names and just call themselves the “Johns”

      Or add “We’re Not” in front of it.

      Can’t stop laughing, you guys are killing me! That may be the best post ever on KSR!

    4. IndianaSucks

      Seems like I’m following you but I’m not lol… funny yes but you need to get out more brother.

    5. 4everUKblue

      Sounds to me like it’s you who needs to get out more if you’re not getting that, Indiana!

    Why do people want a man who condoned and permitted prostitutes to have sex with minors to get a head coaching job? He should never coach in America again!!
