Rick Pitino says NCAA ruling is “unconstitutional”

He’s back!

If you didn’t get enough of Rick Pitino’s comedy caravan yesterday, you’ll be glad to know he had more to say today.

Pitino went on “Ramsey and Rutherford” to continue his Feel Sorry For Me Tour 2018, and in his lengthy interview with the show, he said he believes the NCAA’s ruling is “unconstitutional.”

Now I’m no expert on constitutional law, but I think he’s going to have a tough time backing that one up. I don’t think our forefathers sat around the Constitutional Convention talking about hookers and skeezers and how partying with them in an on-campus dorm room should impact the NCAA tournament.

I’d like to hear Rick explain which amendment is in play here.

      It’s the liberal mentality. Even though I committed a crime, I am the victim. Being taught in liberal indoctrination centers we call “schools” everywhere.

      All this kind of misses the point. For several decades, Pitino has been circling the drain while committing acts of quasi-sociopathic behavior and giving off clues about his disturbed mental health. Here in these remarks, he is coming clean and telling the public about the disturbed thinking that leads him to be a serial violator or social norms and rules. This is a dangerous man, a disaster waiting to happen. Getting a job at UL under another pathologic liar, Tom Jurich, was the perfect storm that made Pitino into a monster. It’s a good thing Pitino left UK when he did.

    8th Amendment; excessive punishment forbidden; good luck with that, he would need a brilliant attorney, and Clarence Darrow is not walking through the door.

    I disagree TB, as Uncle Eddie said to Clark, “it’s the gift that keeps on giving”!!!!! Let him be roasted until he slithers away!

    Maybe Rick should sue the US government.

      By the way, is Rick suggesting that UL sue the NCAA while he is suing UL? He has an odd perspective on justice.

    It’s the first Amendment Drew, the right to assemble in dorm rooms while underage girls dance for underage boys and their fathers.

      “This goes a lot deeper in college basketball than four corrupt assistant coaches,” one of Thamel’s sources said. “When this all comes out, Hall of Fame coaches should be scared, lottery picks won’t be eligible to play and almost half of the 16 teams the NCAA showed on its initial NCAA tournament show this weekend should worry about their appearance being vacated.”

      Those 16 teams, in case you were wondering: 1. Virginia 2. Villanova 3. Xavier 4. Purdue 5. Auburn 6. Kansas 7. Duke 8. Cincinnati 9. Clemson 10. Texas Tech 11. Michigan State 12. North Carolina 13. Tennessee 14. Ohio State 15. Arizona 16. Oklahoma.

      Sorry Code, I know you’re praying we’re on the list, I’m only worried you’ll be suicidal when we’re not. By the way have you seen a psychiatrist yet? Probably should, maybe they have a fansite you can troll too.

      LOL Code you are a real comedian and my favorite UofLittleBro delusional fan, I will miss you when they finally take you away in a straight jacket. I merely copied and pasted, doubt you know what that means. I don’t need to worry about you blowing your brains out, only that the bullet will pass through and kill an innocent bystander….wait you’re alone in your mom’s basement.

      4ever -The crazy thing is if any UK players (or their family) were paid to attend UK, John Calipari will be Rick Pitino’s biggest supporter because John didn’t know it was happening either. Am I right? Good night.

      Lol lilcode acting like he just dropped the mic on his last comment. That comment is based on an “if”… Louisvile fans have been saying “when cal gets busted” since 2009. A shift to “if” shows a little bit of gravitating to reality. The irony of their banner coming down and ours hanging high! Lol

      Booby is spot on, while Louisville fans were squawking about Cal beating a cheater, we were laughing about Rick going 2-8. And then they, not us, get busted in not one bit two huge scandals. Honestly hilarious!

    The FBI has the Number One Recruiting Class of 2018 (self.CollegeBasketball)

    Team FBI has taken college basketball recruiting by storm, gobbling up top 100 recruits and quickly amassing 2018’s number one recruiting class. The class now features four 5* players and two 4* players with potentially more to come.
    Anfernee Simons, 5* formerly linked to Louisville
    E.J. Montgomery, 5* formerly linked to Auburn
    Jahvon Quinerly, 5* formerly linked to Arizona
    Taeshon Cherry, 5* formerly linked top USC
    Courtney Ramey, 4* formerly linked to Louisville
    J’Raan Brooks, 4* formerly linked to USC

    Again copied and pasted for you non UofLittleBrothel fans who will know what that means.

    Maybe pitino is referring to his inalienable right to pursuit of happiness via “hookers and skeezers”?

    To the extent Pitino’s “unconstitutional” wail is given any serious consideration, Little Ricky would be wise to review the U.S. Supreme Court case involving Jerry Tarkanian. The NCAA is a voluntary organization that state universities join voluntarily. Therefore, NCAA action is not “state action” requiring what the courts would think of as “due process.” Pitino is hate-able, for sure, but he’s not well. He has mental illness.

    Remember when Rick first signed with U of L and the Card fans were wearing the “ Got Pitino, We Do”, T-shirts? Wow! Wonder what the proper T-shirt would say now? Got the clap, get treatment?
