Exactly one week ago from right now, we shared a letter to Rick Pitino from a fan in 1995 concerning Walter McCarty’s diet. Pitino mailed the letter back to the fan with scathing comments, including “Get a life!” and “You need a checkup mentally!”
Well today we were reminded of yet another Pitino letter, this time in 2001 from a UK fan at Auburn with a short message regarding Pitino’s return to Rupp Arena.
Pitino returned to sender with:
For a PHD your awfully stupid! Read the newspapers and find out what our country is going through. If you know how to read.
To be fair, this wasn’t long after the 9/11 attacks. Still, Rick, a little aggressive with the response.
