How will Rick lie his way out of this one?
Among the indictments handed down yesterday by a federal grand jury regarding the bribery scandal in college basketball is a passage that alleges Rick Pitino (aka Coach-2) not only knew about, but directed payments to players. From NBC News:

People are asking if this is "new". What is new is that the indictment explicitly states that not only was Pitino aware of the alleged scheme but in fact was directly involved in it. https://t.co/Nc6fqLXvhp

But, but, but, Rick Pitino passed a lie detector test, so surely he is innocent, right?!?
Can someone check on Dickie V to see how he is handling the news?
