Pitino confirms Kentucky and Louisville will meet on Dec. 21

pitino-flips-off-UK-crowd-Dec-2015

A couple of weeks ago we reported the Kentucky-Louisville game will be moved ahead of Christmas this year, to be played on Wednesday, December 21. Today Rick Pitino confirmed that news in a press conference at UofL to release the Cardinals’ schedule and talk about the current state of the program.

The time of that game has not been established, but it will be played on the Wednesday before the Christmas holiday. Louisville will play Indiana on New Year’s Eve.

 

** Update **

Pitino said his team will have the length and athleticism to try to match his ’96 team’s style at Kentucky.

Never change, Rick.

    Can that guy go just one season without trying to compare either an individual player or his team to a UK player or team he coached? It’s kind of pathetic…funny in a pathetic kind of way.

      The 96 team was one of the better teams in the 20th century, he’s a nutcase thinking anything at UL could come close to a title team at UK

      He just misses us… it’s like when people stalk their exes on Facebook and compare themselves to the ex’s new significant other.

    Think he’s just trying to prove that old addage that if you tell a lie long enough you’ll believe it’s the truth…

    Uhhh, that’s not what he said. He said this UL team will have the length and athleticism to play the same style as his 96 UK team. And then he even followed it up saying “let’s be clear, I’m not saying they’re that good, only that they are similar in the way I want them to play”.

    You all are OBSESSED with him. Truly obsessed.

      I agree. I knew I soon as I heard that (was playing at work) that it would be taken out of context. I had some sixth graders one time and we played that style too.

      LOL, did you just say the exact same thing Drew did, but complaining as if you were saying something more accurate? Or did Drew change the article, and that’s what made you look like a lunatic?

      Taken directly from above: “Pitino said his team will have the length and athleticism to try to match his ’96 team’s style at Kentucky.” How is this any different from what FBI Informant said?
