I asked Jim Boeheim why Rick Pitino wasn’t at ACC meetings. “He’s still waiting for his horse to finish in the Derby”

Over the past 10 years, I’ve realized several unchanging truths. One of those is that Rick Pitino one-liner jokes never get old. Jim Boeheim agrees, as evidenced by his above quote from today’s ACC meetings. For reference, Pitino’s horse Goldencents finishes 17th out of 19 horses in the Kentucky Derby. According to trainer Doug O’Neill, “He [the horse] just didn’t fire.” While that is unfortunate, it is not as bad as firing on one’s own pants leg.
