Pitino says he will never step foot in Kentucky again

Once Tom Jurich’s termination letter hit the internet Tuesday afternoon and began to soak in the tears of Jurich truthers, I did what everyone should do in a time like that and tuned in to Louisville sports radio.

And if you’re going to tune in to Louisville sports radio to listen to how they spin the never-ending UofL saga, you have to listen to Ramsey and Rutherford — which is, undoubtedly, the funniest show going right now.

Tuesday’s Ramsey and Rutherford was a laugh riot, as was the only other time I listened to it, after Jurich’s firing. But in the midst of Ramsey babbling on and me wondering how in the world Rutherford can sit with him for three hours each day, I heard an interesting little tidbit that I don’t believe has been said anywhere: Rick Pitino will never return to the state of Kentucky.

“I actually had this conversation with Coach Pitino,” Ramsey told his listeners, when asked if Pitino will ever be back in the Bluegrass. “He says he will never step foot back in the state of Kentucky. He’s feeling pretty bitter right now and that might change, and I want to not believe that, but he sounded pretty determined and staunch on his stance.”

Hear the clip below:

Listen to the entire show here.

If this is true and Rick Pitino never returns to the state where he coached college basketball for 25 years of his life, Italian restaurants will finally be family-friendly again.

    I’m sure he’ll be subpoenaed for something.

      I came here to post the same thing.

  2. ukblue22

    I’m okay with that.

    Great! Go away Rick, and sit down and be quiet while you’re at it.

    A really sad ending for a hell of a coach

    Good, Glad he’s gone. We are bound to see him enough on ESPN. Of course Terry Meiners will have him on his radio show every once and a while.

      Who will sorry azz “Minors” orally satisfy forthwith now that Turtleneck and the swinging deek funky coach are gone?

      “Miner’s” mouth – aka ‘Johnsonville’, given his penchant for making accommodations – will shrink like Rick’s lil nis in the 16th second.

    I wonder if he sells the Lexus dealership or restaurants he’s involved in that are in the state of KY

    Hmmmmmm. Can I have is >$100,000 suite at Churchill for derby? He’ll be back

    1. ClutchCargo

      I’d bring a case of Lysol and Clorox wipes if I was going to that suite.

    No chance he’ll be invited back for the 20th Anniversary Celebration of their 2005 Final Four appearance, the peak of his time there?

  10. Willis talkin bout....

    ha.. We are not that lucky. The simple fact that he said that means he is probably already here. Most likely living in Jurich’s basement.

  11. ClutchCargo

    He says he will never step foot in the state of KY again; therefore, he will definitely be in KY every chance he gets. Where else would he get the constant attention that he so desperately needs?

      Plus he’s a pathological liar. I mean besides the lie detector test he passed…of course.

  12. UKBlue1982

    It’s not like Pitino to tell an untruth.

  13. Pitinos Conscience

    Looking forward to those softball Larry Miners questions

  14. TBW3011

    Hate to hear him say this. I was hoping he’d never step foot in Kentucky again.

    Maybe he could move in with his wife of 33 years, Joanne Minardi Pitino!!!! He might have to sleep in the garage, though.

    1. 4everUKblue

      He doesn’t want to sleep with her anyway. Probably can’t remember the last time they shared a bed.

  16. Philthy

    Just go away and shut up. Please.

  17. BrotherChris

    Now we believe he’s telling the truth? No way. He’ll be back.

  18. BigBlue4EverUK

    There is no reason to come back. He put his house up for sales few days after getting fired. I would kick back on the beach with my Millions sipping some bourbon.
