Ready for a blast from the past? After three years in a federal prison in Alabama, Karen Sypher has been moved to a halfway house. In 2011, Sypher was sentenced to seven years in prison for trying to extort millions of dollars, cars, and a house from Rick Pitino to stay quiet about their 15-second affair in 2003. According to WDRB, Sypher has been reassigned to the Residential Reentry Management field office in Nashville, which operates halfway houses in towns across Tennessee and Kentucky, including Louisville. Federal prisoners generally serve their last six months in a halfway house, so today, Sypher is one step closer to freedom.
From Sypher to strippers, there’s never a dull day for the University of Louisville, is there? In case you missed it, they released their own Super Bowl ad last night:
(Shoutout to Bucky Small Hooves for that masterpiece)
Speaking of Louisville, it was just announced that Deng Adel and Mangok Mathiang will miss tonight’s game at Virginia because of a curfew violation. Breaking curfew on the same day Sypher was moved to a halfway house…with every other program in America, that’s just a coincidence; with Louisville, it’s yet another punchline.
