At yesterday’s press conference Coach Pitino made it clear he has no intentions of retiring any time soon. As a fan (and a Rick Pitino fan boy) this excites me but it still doesn’t change the fact that Rick is 61 and more than likely the Cards will have a new head coach in the next 10-12 years.

Today the University of Louisville officially announced that the Cards will play the Minnesota Gophers on November 14th 2014. The game will be the Armed Forces Classic and will be played at the U.S. Coast Guard’s Air Station Borinquen in Puerto Rico (Pictured Above). This will be the 2nd time Coach Pitino and his son Richard Pitino have faced off with Rick winning the first game while Richard was at FIU. 

This will be the Third edition of ESPN’s Armed Forces classic with Oregon defeating Georgetown earlier this season in South Korea and last season the UCONN Huskies defeated Michigan St in Germany.

Yesterday Minnesota coach Richard Pitino blogged that they are trying to get a game with Louisville next year to open the season. The game would be held in a Military hanger in Puerto Rico on November 14th and the coach said they were 99% sure the game would happen. Last night his Father and Louisville basketball Head Coach Rick Pitino confirmed his sons blog post on his weekly radio show. Pitino told Paul Rogers that the game is all but going to happen some things with ESPN just need to be Ironed out.

Rick Pitino also confirmed that barring unforeseen circumstances the Cards will also be a part of the Jimmy V classic in Madison Square Garden against Indiana in early December. With these two games in the mix, the Big 10/ACC Challenge, and the annual Kentucky game next year is shaping up to be one of the Cardinals best out of Conference schedules to date.
