Radio Ron Chilton just poked his head in the office and handed me this newspaper clipping he had in a scrapbook. It’s a reader submission from the Courier-Journal on August 20, 2000, questioning Rick Pitino’s recruiting methods at Kentucky. A Louisville fan hinted at foul play after Calipari pulled a trick out of Pitino’s book and hired Milt Wagner to be on his staff at Memphis.
It’s a pretty neat little gem from a time when college basketball’s biggest rivals were at other jobs outside of Kentucky. It’s also from a time when people read the print edition of the Courier-Journal.
Only Radio Ron would have this.
