Rick Pitino flips off UK fan on the way to locker room

Rick Pitino found himself on the losing end of yet another battle with John Calipari, which has to be frustrating. So frustrating that Pitino flipped off a UK fan after the game on his way into the tunnel:

Pitino refused to meet with the media after the game, sending assistant Ralph Willard instead. Of course.

    He’s so obviously done after this year. I don’t think even the amoral cesspool that is Louisville’s athletic department can keep him around after what he’s done the past year.

      Yeah… I’ve learned never to bet on Louisville when it comes to doing the right thing.

    1-9? thought it was 1-8. either way just shows you how much this isn’t “just another game.” Rick probably knows that this was his last and best shot to beat us in Rupp. To bad Ricky…to bad.

    If our football team wasn’t completely inept, it would have been a clean sweep of the major sports.

    He didn’t flip off anyone. Look at it again

      You’re right. Pitino probably loses to UK on purpose because he loves us so much.

    He wasn’t flipping off the fans. He was letting them know exactly how many times he’s beaten Cal at Kentucky this decade.

    The answer is 1 finger.

    What would one expect from the coach of Loserville, classless!

      Is that the same ‘Classless’ coach who put UK back on the map? You remember, don’t you? All the shit that went down during the Sutton years? The paying players, the cheating, the stealing?

      You stupid, inbred hick.

      No, at that time he was at the pinnacle of his career and doing his best coaching at the place he described as the Roman Empire of college basketball. It wasn’t until he got to louisville that the UL culture rubbed off on him and he began getting tattooed, chasing women cheating and lying. We cleaned house after Sutton. We don’t allow hookers in dorms here. He’s a UL man now.

      You stupid whore monger.

    I have a couple gem stories about Rick and Richard myself…… I’ve been hesitant to speak them out, but things like this sure make it tempting.. He’s a bad character human….. Trust me.

      Surely not as many stories as there are about Calicheat and the history of corruption at UK.

      Hey Sucks you have been on probation THREE times since we cleaned house over 25 years ago and under NCAA investigation for cheating once again RIGHT NOW! You’ve been on probation more than us and have your own stories. Most of them more recent.

    What does the University of Louisville, Pitino and school during spring break have in common? No class.

      Kind of sad that a team that was unranked, predicted to finish 7th in the acc, that’s played a very soft schedule, loses as an underdog on the road, by 2, but are considered the overrated team :/. Wasn’t Kentucky the #1 team in the nation not long ago? Not to mention the 311th best 3 point shooting team in the country heading into the day(around 29%), shot 11 of 23 today (47.8%). Hats off to Kentucky, they played great today, by far their best game of the season, but it felt more like Monmouth beating UCLA today, not UCLA beating Kentucky.

      uavel was a 2.5 point favorite. There you go making excuses again.

    He is a true example garbage….. He has an ego the size of Mount Rushmore and the morals of an alley cat… Yet UL thinks he is a King where he sets a terrible example to his players… UL would be better off without him because since he has been there he has brought shame and embarrassment on the college, yet they must like that publicity because they still keep him….

      “We” meaning who? What does he mean by that comment? Very odd, indeed!

    His gesture should be the answer when people ask if we should bring him back after his retirement to honor him. He has nothing but contempt for us. We were just a means to his ends. Back at ya Rick!

      Yes, he does have contempt for the university, the program, and most of all, the shitty fans, and justifiably so. When UK was facing the death penalty, he came in, pulled the program from the toilet that was left by the cheating, thieving, corrupt mess that was left by Sutton, Casey and the other scum.

    You can hear a fan say to him “1 and 9 baby 1 and 9”. That’s when dick threw the finger. He now has denied this like everyone expected him too. Has anyone noticed the common denominator in all the scenarios that have transpired at the little bro U? Come on dick you are a born politician, everyone that has vision clearly sees the ole one finger salute!!! Denial is a bad thing especially when there is video proof otherwise. Sad,Sad Man!!!
