We’re trying to focus on things other than Louisville today, promise, but Card Nation makes it too easy. This morning, Peyton Siva Sr. told us he wants SEX SEX SEX, and a little bit later, Rick Pitino uploaded a post previewing Louisville’s basketball season, but who cares about that. The most interesting part is Rick’s vow not to resign and let Louisville fans down:
First, above all, I’m sorry we all have to endure the pain of these allegations. I so appreciate your support and friendships.
I will not resign and let you down. Someday I will walk away in celebration of many memorable years but that time is not now. I do not fight these accusations by others but rather turn the other cheek. Couldn’t do it at 33, but at 63 it’s the wise thing to do. Let’s let the investigators do their job and we will play basketball.
Of course, he ends the post by mentioning the Pope and his famous words “We will let God judge.”
As BTI pointed out on Twitter, what Pitino fails to realize is by not resigning, he is letting down the portion of his fan base that wants to move past this scandal for a fresh start; however, we all know his ego will never let him do that. But that’s fine. If Rick did resign, he’d really be letting UK fans down. Calipari is 7-1 against him, after all.
