Found March 28, 2012 on Louisville Card Game:
Rick Pitino will probably never be seen wearing glasses court side, and certainly not wire rims. The University of Louisville basketball coach preferring the heavy dark plexi style, saves them exclusively for press conferences and other situations where he wants to be analytical, nostalgic or philosophical. The Clark Kent look suits him well when he’s not performing Superman-like coaching feats, like getting this year’s team to the Final Four.

Pitino's long career has humbled him

After all he has been through, and all he has put himself through, Rick Pitino has been humbled. Just ask him. He'll tell you. In fact, he'll even brag about it.

The thing...

3 years after career low point, Pitino back on top

Before the Big East tournament, Louisville coach Rick Pitino told his players they had a choice. Keep playing the same way and Louisville was all but guaranteed of making another first-weekend exit from the NCAA tournament, just as it had the past two years. Turn things around, and the Cardinals had a chance to do something special. ''He pretty much told us the ball is...

Happy Hour- Final Four

Louisville vs Kentucky: It’s a bluegrass throwdown! Rick Pitino vs his old employer! Kentucky has been better all season and has a roster full of 5 star recruits, but as usual they’re very young with the usual stable of one and dones. In the meantime Louisville had a nice season going, then got hot in the Big East tournament and have parlayed that into a final four appearance...

Rick Pitino On The Dan Patrick Show

Rick Pitino was  a guest on the Dan Patrick show this morning. Pitino talked about why he seems so loose this year. He said it’s because he realizes the end of his career is going to happen, maybe not today, or tomorrow, but at some point. “I’m just going to enjoy every minute of every second of every day,” Pitino said. “It goes by so fast.” Pitino said even though...

Fanning the flames of Kentucky rivalry

I am a 10-year-old couch. The people who bought me gave me to their son when he left for college in Kentucky. On Saturday night, after the conclusion of the Kentucky-Louisville basketball game at the Final Four in New Orleans, there is a good chance I will be dragged out of the living room, onto the lawn and set on fire, just like many of my kind were burned last weekend in Louisville...

Gender Equality fails at Last Night's McDonalds High School Slam Dunk Contest

OMG guys, a high school girl dunked twice last night during a McDonald's All-American Dunk Contest. Women's basketball is evolving into just like the boy's game. WRONG! It was ridiculous as I watched it live. If you saw my endless mockery tweets of the whole event, you know how angry I was. Pat Summitt, Geno Auriemma and Brittney Griner were de-evolutionized after last...
