Rick Pitino must have a short memory, because when asked about Syracuse and Pitt leaving the Big East, he hit us with a quote we won’t ever let him live down:
“My problem is not them leaving,” he said. “My problem is you did it in 48 hours. Don’t run away with a girl after one date when you’ve been dating someone else for three or four years. You’ve been dating this woman for 30 years, show a little respect.”
Hey, Rick, do you not remember that night at Porcini’s? Well, don’t answer that. I think you did run away with a girl after one date. And now you’re accusing Pitt and Syracuse of doing the same by leaving the Big East? Show a little respect. And don’t even think about having Tim Sypher drive the ACC to Cincinnati to get its new relationship fixed. This one is a done deal, my man. Deal with it.
I bet Rick would love to have those words back. He’s about to get crushed.
A friend of KSR just sent us a message saying Jim Calhoun should respond with, “We thought about joining the ACC for less than 15 seconds but we tabled it.”
