Coach Pitino made some pretty interesting comments this afternoon during the weekly Big East coaches teleconference. He is still voicing his opinion on the future of the Big East and what he thinks is best for the Louisville program. He also stated that he did not want his team to have a double bye in the Big East tournament, so guys like Kevin Ware and Wayne Blackshear could get some more experience before heading into the NCAA tournament.
