Jeff Walz may be a future Hall of Fame coach, and one of the best in the game, but his daughter is the real star of the family.
I think we are all scandaled out aren’t we? This week all the hearts of every person that supports the Cardinals were sunk into despair with the revelation we cheated. An assistant coach caught on video and audio recordings arranging to buy a player. A “coach 2” involved that has been reported by numerous outlets as being Rick Pitino. I’m sure most of you feel like I do…defeated.
All of us bought into what Rick was selling. We applauded as he railed against shoe companies in a diatribe a couple of years ago. He claimed he would always run a clean program, and, we had no reason not to believe him. After all, he took that program down the road and cleaned it up after a scandal. Unfortunately, we were apparently bamboozled.
