Now that it is December, we have found our first Grinch of the holiday season. His name is Kevin Willard. Willard was an assistant to He Who Shall Not Be Named (Pitino) from 2001-2007 and even recruited David Padgett. While he compliments how well David has handled everything the past few months, he also mentions that he has no emotional attachment to UofL since Pitino and Jurich are both gone. We also can’t fully blame him, he has been gone for a while. Either way, Sunday should be fun when Seaton Hall visits the Yum! Center at 4.
