Rick Pitino SAID WHAT????

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.”

Ummmm…

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.”

Wazzam boy.

    He not only said that, but he also said, “The presidents have always said to put the athletes first. The last thing they’ve talked about is the athletes. So there’s a bit of hypocrisy in the presidents and their answer today.”

    Hey Rick, there is plenty of hyocrisy to go around.

    I don’t understand why one of the main goals of this website is to ruin Rick Pitino’s life. I’m all for having things that are unrelated to UK sports but Matt Jones makes being a UK fan nearly impossible.

    I have been misquoted. All you fat out of shape lexington sweat hogs always find a way to point out my short-cumings. let me set the records straight, i will not have my name soiled with this filth. i said,
    “My problem is not them leaving like i did UK,” I said. “My problem is you last it in 15 seconds. No romance. Don’t run away with a girl after one date in a dark corner of an over priced italian restauraunt, when you’ve been paying someone else for services rendered for three or four years. You’ve been dating this woman for 30 years, show a little respect, and have that mistake aborted.”

    i cant believe this is what Rick Pitino has become. wonder if he thinks about what he’s going to say before he says it? if he does then he has lost his mind for sure! if he doesnt, then he sure needs to start. either way, what a sad sad man.

    Look, Rick hasn’t gotten his “little ricky” near me in 25+ years. Our “relationship” is one of convienence. You know, like Bill and Hillary. Rick gives me everything I want. Money. And I give him what he wants. A free pass to nail skanks anytime, anywhere. It’s all good – I gets mines….

    What is wrong with this guy? On a day when several exotic animals are being killed in Ohio, he is bringing up Big East members moving to the ACC? I am sure this will be blamed on 9/11. He is truly becoming punch line each time he opens his mouth. Nice picture by the way…is that the look he gave when he found out the Sypher incident would be going public?

    Why doesn’t the local media run this ‘story?’ I would show, once again, what a joke of a man Rick has become.

    Ohhhh, Joann and uofl, you must be soooo proud of your man. Congrats.

    I have to agree with #18. What is up with all this Pitino infatuation?

    Now his comment was very dumb given his circumstances. But he had a very good point on the greed of the college presidents

    When I was a little boy, my mother told me that people who live in glass houses should not throw stones. No one has ever illustrated that truth better than Rick Pitino. Of course he was trying to cover his rear end in anticipation of Louisville leaving the Big East for the Big 12. But he could not have picked a worse metaphor if he had tried.
