Hope they take down some Nike schools before all the evidence gets wiped. In particular UNC.
Yea but the difference is, the is Louisville's second major scandal in less than 3 years. They already have Escortgate and now this.... NCAA needs to make a statement and I'm not just saying this as a fan of a rival team, but they are going to be the one in the crosshairs. Otherwise the "major school bias" will kick in and fans will lose it.
They must have serious dirt on him, he was "coach-2" in the FBI's case and has been the only HC to be charged thus far.
He didn't help his case by saying "this is the first time I've signed a five star recruit without chasing him, or even paying for dinners/hotels etc..." (something like that anyway). Makes it sound like he new what was going on, because why would a top recruit play for a program thats under serious investigation already unless he REALLY wanted to play for Pitino.
Sounds like they do.
Shame about Pitino he was always one of my boys but hearing this just scars his legacy man
At least he has more time to see Richard coach at Minny now
Being related to die hard U of L boosters/fans, this actually helped me. I have been told for years that Cal is a fraud and would be caught in a serious scandal and that he's a cheater etc etc. Looks like its Pitino 2-0 in scandals.
Any other coach would have been fired over Escortgate. But he brought them a national championship (mind you its likely going to be vacated) so Jurich looked the other way.
SHOCKER - coach denies serious allegations against him. Colour me surprised.
It's hilarious you only figured out he was dirty just now. After like two other scandals.
He was always one of my favorites man from the old Big East him and Jim BO
I love how Jim Bo skated off his transgressions. Slick Jim. Now ain't nobody remember the sanctions against Syracuse. Not that they had any merit anyway.
I thought you loved Calhoun too. Another con man. Like Ricky and Jimmy the Shriek.
Pitino is my first memory of Providence College being any good, but obviously as time went on it became obvious he was like a lot of other guys in this business, you ain't cheating you ain't winning.
Those old Conference USA games you had to take a shower after watching them.
Carolina has been ADAMANT they have done nothing wrong and that the whole Afro American Studies sham was ancient history but it was a huge scandal that permeated both the football and basketball programs. If they punished Syracuse for minor **** UNC should also get sanctioned too. But of course it's unlikely anything will happen. Sure, go after Syracuse and UConn for academic fraud while UNC (who did a MUCH worse crime) goes off scot free allegedly.
Things keep getting worse and worse for ole Pitino.
The guy was absolutely as shady as they come a long way back. Not surprising whatsoever that he'd pull some crap like that.
Yup. I'm not surprised either.
Its funny because he always had that knight in shining armour/good guy image, even after he cheated on his wife.
That's fair enough.
It's a pretty big deal though.
I'm rather sad about Pitino's downfall. This is because I am a Purchase grad and went there when it was the Knicks practice facility. I did work for the basketball team and got to know the longtime athletic director. He told me that while Pat Riley was a gigantic *******/******* Pitino was the exact opposite. He went out of his way to do things for the university and students while Riley wouldn't have pissed on us if we were on fire.
He keeps digging himself a bigger hole. What an idiot.
