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.”

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.
