Yes, this creep is exactly what we need at a Vincentian university. Right.

Keep him away from any blue pills and now being 66 we probably wouldn’t have to worry about that kind of stuff.

Pitino to SJU is a PIPE DREAM for a few delusional posters who would win over any cost.

It has ZERO probability to occur, for good reason.

Move on to more likely candidates:

Hurley
Cleuss
Other Duke alums

so because he paid for an abortion he does not qualify for a job? That is the most ridiculous statement I have ever heard of. I could see if you were talking about the parties his ass coaches threw at Louisville, or even the FBI investigation which has yet to mention his name in any transcripts or audio. But the abortion thing is outright funny... What happened to penance and forgiveness? If the abortion thing was so bad, how did he get to meet with the POPE?

I am sure the Pope knew nothing about it and I have no idea when that meeting took place (before/after). I have no idea about his desire for reconciliation or forgiveness or if he even asked for either. Do you? Frankly, it's not my business. But if you can't understand how a Roman Catholic institution would have trouble with "the abortion thing" than I have no idea what to say. I guess faith and PR are not a high priority for you. A school is more than a basketball team.

How do you respond to Pitino's text to Zagoria? "that's not happening"

You can't be that obtuse, so I think maybe you're just playing dumb for argument's sake. Of course, it is ALL of the above. THIS university will not hire THAT guy. Period.

You don’t fire Chris Mullin after a 21-win season and NCAA tournament berth to hire a guy like Cluess.

It’s Hurley’s job to turn down and then Pitino.
Pitino is a sure thing IMO but it may take him longer due to being out for a while. Hurley has recruits ready for 2020 and he has many kids eligible to bring over from ASU including two eligible grad-transfers (one would need a sixth year waiver), a 4* PG and sensational JUCO combo guard (both would need a release) and a 4* center that is committed and not signed (wouldn’t need a release).

If he brings over just that JUCO combo and one of his grad transfers we are instantly competitive.

Think some of his recruits are local to AZ. May not just follow him to NY vs. Other options.
