This sealed it for me. If LSU could reinstate Wade who is supposedly on tape talking about payments to players I could sleep at night with Pitino, Sr. running the show here. Just my opinion though.


And this will be in the news for 48 hours with some critics. Then guess what? It will die. By Tomorrow or Wed. latest no one will care. That's the point with the Pitino stuff. It's not what you want to teach your kids, but sometimes if you want to win at this level you have to get in the dirt. Cheaters really do win many times.

I will never understand the satisfaction any intelligent person could possibly get from winning by cheating. Just root for Duke or NC or Kentucky or Kansas, etc. Me, I would rather lose.

Ok. I am in. This just further reinforces what is reinforced over and over, the NCAA either makes up the rules or hides from them, as they go along.

All this program needs is for Pitino to be on his best behavior for 5 years, and get this program straightened out. After that, he can call it a career.

Or, if this program finishes in the top 3/4 of the conference, and gets a tourney bid every year, Pitino could just keep doing what he is doing.

At SJU, he will not have the pressure of competing against the blue bloods for 5 star kids and yearly final four appearances.

He can go after 3 and 4 star kids, coach them up, and make a couple of nice runs in the tournament (and maybe get lucky with a final four as well). I think we could all live with that.

Desperate people do desperate things. Peoples' standards change or evaporate. The will is eroded.

Probably the only home run hire, but a Bonds-McGwire-Sosa home run.

He publicly admitted to paying for an abortion with a woman he had an affair with. We are a Catholic school. He is not being hired.

And Catholic priests have been molesting children for years and the Catholic Church has hidden it and swept it under the rug. Which is worse? If Pitino wants to come here and promises to run it clean for the time he is here then get him here.

IF he were to come here he would be under such a microscope it would be next to impossible to get away with cheating.
