University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Rick Pitino to Georgia?

After news broke that Georgia fired head coach Mark Fox, Mrs. Tyler Thompson wrote:

Both the Ole Miss and Georgia jobs are now open. Hopefully neither of the schools are dumb enough to hire Rick Pitino.

Georgia might just be dumb enough to do it.

Now that the dust has settled, people are talking.  Jay Williams is listening and he’s heard that Slick Rick’s name is hot in the streets.  The ESPN analyst’s exact words were:

Been hearing Rick Pitino’s name a lot from trusted sources regarding the Georgia job.

Pitino did say yesterday that he’s hired an agent and he plans on a return to coaching.  If Pitino doesn’t want to keep losing to Calipari every year, another former rivaled foe might.  Mike Decourcy reports former Indiana coach Tom Crean is interested in Georgia’s head coaching vacancy.  This coaching search is gonna be…something.

    Every basketball analyst in the country:” Mark Fox does things the right way”

    UGA Administration:”F*ck that”

    If Georgia hires 3-stacks, the first thing they should do is fire every assistant coach he hires (for reason), and name their own assistants. His track record ain’t great.

    I think UCONN would hire him before they would. Stranger things have happened.

      Rick PAYtino should apply for a job at UNLV.
      He wanted to go there or Louisville back in
      the day.

      Rick PAYtino could just put a Neon sign on
      UNLV’s Basketball Dorm like Porkies & he
      wouldn’t need to worry about prostitution…
      It’s legal in Nevada. 😉 lol

      Code, let me be the latest to say you are an a**. The history of the world didn’t start with your birth. What your grandparents saw and experienced is just as revelant as yours, if not more. So, just shut up until you have something real to say.

    So if you somehow convince yourselves that Pitino was innocent in both the stripper/hooker and pay-for-recruits scandals, as he contends, then you’re hiring someone who twice had no control over the assistants he hired as they committed major (and unethical) violations right under his nose.

    Whether he knew about the violations or not (of course he did – he’s a control freak), he’s not fit to be a college coach.

    Louisville fired Pitino and took down his banner. Meanwhile his banner and jersey still hang in Rupp Arena. And BBN acts mad.You cant make this stuff up. LMAO SuperBowl.

      No one here is mad that Pitino won a NC here or that his jersey is still up….oh and so is the banner. But it sure is fun watching the mouthy fans of Littlebrother suffer. Your program is like watching The Ball family meets the Kardashians or a train wreck, just can’t stop watching.

      Louisville fans hurry to UK websites because their teams suck at everything and they need a winner to follow. Good luck in the NIT this year little brother. Enjoy all your little participation trophies for the fake tourney.

      And since I’ve left you speechless again, I will leave. I almost feel guilty sometimes. Take care and have a great weekend.
      Keep your friends close and your super bowl closer. Peace.

      You know that someone has no life when they have to get on message boards of their school’s arch rival to post continuous BS comments. And you have left no one speechless. People get tired of dealing with ignorant people such as yourself.

      I guess if my team can’t make it to their own conference tournament championship…I guess if my team was on the bubble the day before selection Sunday…I guess if my team just had a title taken away from them…I would make myself feel good by posting on the message boards of the team I wish mine could be

      502 – Super Bowl? So since more years than not our team gets geared up to beat your teams ass…you claim Super Bowl? It’s a rivalry game…it would be a losers mentality to cop out and try to make an excuse as why their team consistently can’t beat their biggest arch rival…at least UNCheat and dUKe are competitive and EVEN as far as head to head record shows…if it wasn’t for your teams mediocrity maybe we could claim the best rivalry in college basketball



    • TXwildcat57
      1:54 am March 11, 2018 Permalink

      I bet 502 still lives at home with his parents…he makes every excuse in the world of not being able to support himself and be a true MAN to make his own way in life…probably puts blame on his deficiencies in life on the closest people in his life

      Very similar to his favorite teams former head coach



    • TXwildcat57
      3:01 am March 11, 2018 Permalink

      I bet 502 complains about everything in his life…common mentality of a straight b****… he has been enabled his own life…whenever tough times hit his life (2018 life in loserville) he looks to put down others to reboost his own view of himself



    • TXwildcat57

      I bet 502 consistently uses his hand to pleasure himself versus finding a woman to take that measure

      I’m not speechless, unlike you (your instate rival) I have a life outside of this site, which is the fansite of my team. I just like watching UofLittleBro fans like you suffer, even if you won’t admit it, it’s obvious you’re in pain and I totally dig that about you. Suffer on fool.

      Again Code, I feel like I’m clubbing a baby seal when I abuse you. Wouldn’t be so bad if you had a valid argument, but you’re just a loser like your program. I’m going to keep watching the Ball family meets the Kardashians….high drama. Key word high….just ask Alex Sander or Manuel Forrest or Chane Behanan. And you say I’m speechless….that’s right up there with the super bowl joke. LMAO!

      When the NCAA hammers the Cardinals yet again (this time for the FBI related findings), it will hit Pitino with a show-cause penalty, I know it gets confusing keeping all their scandals and punishments straight.

    No way in hell FEBUK goes to a football school poised to compete for a national title over the next few years. He won’t play second fiddle to Kirby Fox, or go to a school that treats basketball as a hobby. He has to be the main show in town.

    So let me get this straight. Tubby took Pitinos job at UK, then tubby left opening the door for Cal to leave Memphis and take UK job. Few years later tubby takes Cals old job at Memphis, and now Pitino takes Tubbys old job at Georgia. My how the mighty have fallen.
