Pitino said Mahmoud will be out Saturday, therefore Mahmoud will play Saturday

Louisville forward Anas Mahmoud suffered a sprained ankle in practice last Tuesday and missed the next three games following the injury.

After the Cardinals’ win two nights ago, Rick Pitino said Mahmoud would return January 3 for Louisville’s game with Wake Forest, thus missing the Kentucky game.

The moment Pitino said that, we all knew Mahmoud would suit up in Lexington. Pitino might as well have said, “Mahmoud will absolutely, one hunnid percent play against Kentucky.”

This seems to happen every year: Louisville player gets hurt, Pitino says player will miss Kentucky game, player plays in Kentucky game. Mahmoud is this year’s example. He got in last night against Utah Valley and played well in nine minutes. So either he had a miraculous overnight recovery since Pitino’s comment, or Pitino is still the lying-est liar to ever lie.

See you Saturday, Anas.

    Would prefer that he play. Wish him well health.
    UofL fans don’t need anymore excuses to add to their ever-growing list.

    Want to see the most competitive game possible. ..for about 30 minutes then run away with it.

    That makes no sense that Rick would make that comment. I went to their game last night and he played a lot of significant minutes…

    I truly think Pitino is a pathological liar. He can’t help himself.

    Actually, the “lying-est liar to ever lie” is one Mr. Donald J. Trump. The biggest lying sack of excrement the world will ever know. In fact, Politifact could not settle on just one lie in naming him the “Lie of the Year”….stating that out of the 77 Trump statements they fact-checked, 76 were rated as either mostly false, false, or pants on fire. Anyone that votes for him because he is not PC or because “he speaks his mind” is an idiot. Trump only care about Trump, not the American people. A billionaire president is NOT what this country needs.

      Jesus. We’re talking about Pitino. Knock it off. You don’t like Trump? DON’T VOTE FOR HIM. Problem solved.

    I cannot believe he’s playing that gag again. I wouldn’t be surprised if he tried to bring Behanon back for one more game.

    Pitino lies so much he should be on the Republican debate stage.
