Rick Pitino has been known to stretch the truth over the years. To say he has become an expert in hyperbole would be an understatement.
Today Rick crawled out of his cave to make an appearance on a radio show with a man who knows Muhammad Ali. When discussing the upcoming rivalry game at Rupp Arena, he acted like it didn’t matter.
“I’ve coached at both places. I never got into the rivalry when I was at Kentucky, and I’ve never gotten into the rivalry when I’ve been at Louisville, because I don’t like getting my players nervous. “
Sounds exactly what a nervous person would say before losing the rivalry game for the eighth time in nine tries.
A preview of what you’ll see from Pitino on Saturday.
