Pitino: “I don’t believe in any form of cheating at all”

Screen Shot 2015-10-02 at 6.32.28 PM

This Louisville scandal is unbelievable. The press conference we just watched, also unbelievable.

Tom Jurich said, “Coach Pitino has a perfect track record.” He really did. Those are words that came out of his mouth.

Then Pitino dropped this bomb:

Outside of those two laughable quotes, it sounded like Louisville is VERY concerned about this. The stories may very well be legit, and if they are, that 2013 banner should come down.

I’m just going to leave this here…

    Pitino obviously concerned —- he cut short his fifth Botox treatment of the day to make a statement.

      Damn, you got that right. Maybe even a little face lift as well.

    I don’t think any of these recruits came because of these trashy ho’s.

    According to the publishers website the book has pictures of the escorts with Mcgee and players, and that they recovered text between the escort and McGee as well. If true Cards gonna have a hard time getting out of this one.

    Not a Lou fan but this is sad. If true, it may be difficult or impossible for Pitino to continue as coach. He hired this assistant. Hate to see Pitino’s career possibly end on this. No matter what, he is a great coach who brought a championship to UK when he was in Lex.

      Yes, because he should ignore the story that was the LEAD on Sports Center at 7pm.

    If none of the players came because of all those escorts….sounds like those escorts didnt know what they were doing. Too bad Lisa Ann is a cats fan

    The term ‘loserville’ has new meaning! I noticed in one comments by Jurich he appeared to be looking for an out by naming Rick twice, but not himself or we one time. Now Rick says he didn’t think any of the recruits came there because of the escorts. Folks, that was admission of the fact, right there! He messed up with that statement. The text messages and pictures are what is going to nail them. Some players are going to come forward, through fright, or perhaps a guilty conscience and nail the administration.

    The biggest thing I seen from Pitino’s press conf. is after all of his blah blah …. A reporter asked … So you don’t believe the allegations are true? Rick said “I didn’t say that.” …. That says it’s true and Rick covering his arse!!!

    Hmmm…That would mean vacating his one lonely victory against Cal at UK too, and that would mean UK would have gotten into the tournament too.

    Breaking News: Rick “flash” Pitino has secured the services of Chief Legal Counsil, none other than a one Mr. Bill Clinton. Whose first official address to the media stated: it all depends on your definition of the word “came” here. If by “came” you meant “came”, and not “came”, well then, that makes all the difference in the world! I am confident my client did nothing wrong! “Guilty” does not necessarily mean “guilty”, you know!”.

      I saw a billboard advertisement for a law firm in Ashland, KY several years ago that simply read, “Just because you did it, doesn’t mean you’re guilty.” It might be time for UofL to get that number.

    Does anyone have a link to watch the entire press conference?



  25. Tommycatsfan

    I’m shocked that Pitini didn’t bring up how tragic 9/11 was for him and then yell at the press for bringing this up when we should be thinking about Christopher Columbus and Columbus Day.

    9:52 pm October 2, 2015 Permalink

    This is all just a set-up job. No need for us UK fans to get to worked up now. Denny set Rick up, so that he could fly in at the last minute, and save the day! This was how Denny operated in his day, and he lured poor Rick in. Suckered him. So that Rick would eventually have no choice but to ask him for help. Denny’s Wooden connections are still strong, so he can make anything just go away. You all remember those days well! Teflon Crum. Plus, I hear he’s retained Roy’s legal team at UNC too, so it should all fade away soon. If things get too tricky for Ricky, Coach K is on stand by.

    Doesn’t believe in any form of cheating!! I bet his wife takes issue with that. Geez…. Pitino has no filter.
    I am sooo glad he is at UL. The gift that keeps on giving!

    Wonder if L.Brown knows anything?!? So far, the responses have been VERY well scripted…. Looks like SOMEONE wants to take quite a few people DOWN for the count!?! The mustard turtleneck was just this week applying for the job at Texas!? IU hasn’t been able to get rid of Crean yet?!? And this might solve that problem. Pitino has NO shortage of enemies??? Uof Smell is, well, Uof Smell….
    Somebody is cashing in all their chips! Casting a BIG net….!
