    So we finish the hearing and U of L is gonna stiff me. And I say, “Hey, L1C4, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort” And they say, “Oh, uh, there won’t be any money, but your personnel file will say you resigned in shame, rather than being fired.”
    So I got that goin’ for me, which is nice.

    I think 1 of those wins were vacated too.

    Most importantly Cal owned Pitino’s @ss!

    So Rick is ready to move on, then? This might be as close to acceptance as he gets.

    Still off too easy with too much well said about him

    Soooooo… you sue an employer for improper termination and when that goes south, you decide that…”Oh, really I resigned!” May be the smoothest (but not quickest) move by Pitino yet!

  7. ClutchCargo

    Former employee sues you for wrongful termination, loses and gets nothing. The former employee then agrees to drop all legal claims and say he actually quit. Winning!


      Steve Quayle? He always says that talking about history in general.

    Record is 2-8 and most importantly we owned them when it mattered in the tournament. I know that has to burn Pitino up so much that Cal got him with the record and wins and especially that Cal always got him in the tourney. As a kid that applied to be a ball boy for him and had my heart ripped out when he went from Boston to UL (I didn’t care that he left for the NBA…I only cared when he was a turncoat), I’m glad that karma came back to bite him the same way it bit me as a little kid that thought he was a hero. RIP Rick. Career over.

    Without that 40 mil how will he survive? He may end up homeless. Poor fellow.

    UCLA fires Cronin after this season, hires Pitino. Calling it now.

    Rick realized how dumb his case was!!! I mean not only would he lose this case, Hey Bebe! Would have to live it all over again. UL has this won from the get go. Rick just came to his senses of the mater.

  14. Nickerbocker05

    Something tell me there is way more then the scandals that have been made public about Rick time at ul…. if he was will to go through public humiliation AGAIN for 40mil, thinking that’s all they got on him… what could they possibly have brought up that made him back down to make him seem even more like a coward then he already is perceived!?

  15. CrystalBall

    Rick didn’t have a choice. He violated the morals clause in his contract. Could have, and should have, been fired after the restaurant episode.

    What Rick did at Louisville is his business. But when it comes what he did for UK that what like about him he brought our program from ashes just remember that period. As far he went on coach at Louisville I can give a horse rat. The bottom line is what he did for Kentucky basketball

    1. Ez21

      Yes he brought us back but the bottom line is that he knew what it would do to the UK fan base no matter what anyone says and still did it by going to coach UL. I loved the man when he was here but what he did was unforgivable!
