Pitino Upset Over Papa John’s Comments

Pitino

news.yahoo.com

Rick Pitino once said that when the time came it was time for him to move on from UofL, he would walk away quietly. With no surprise, that doesn’t seem to be the case. He has now came out and said that he didn’t feel he had support anymore at UofL and that Papa John’s comments hurt his feelings.

Nunnsense | Give Padgett A Chance

David Padgett- SF

This week’s edition is more of a rant rather than an informational, educational, entertainment or editorial piece.

I’ve had all I can take of the negative talk and bashing of our current men’s basketball coach. I don’t get on the message boards because I can only take so much before I call out people’s ignorance but I do get on Facebook and Twitter and that’s enough for me.  It seems that after every game, I see many people complaining about this team, their performance and especially their coach. It’s a bad look and Lord knows we don’t need anymore of that.

It is my belief that most of these people are diehard Rick Pitino fans. I get that some of you will back Rick to the day you die but this isn’t about him. This is about the University of Louisville. Nobody is bigger than the University, – not me – not you – not Rick – not Tom – not Dr. Postel – NOBODY! It’s time to move on and put all of this behind us. Support the school you love unconditionally. But we can’t do that if we are divided.

That’s why we can’t have people calling out our basketball coach after just a few games. I understand the frustration and I believe it’s OK to call out the coaches, who get paid a lot of money, if they are not performing up to their pay grade but at least give coach Padgett a chance.

Kevin Willard Has No Love For UofL

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.

Pitino UofL For Breach Of Contract

Rick Pitino 3

Today, former head coach Rick Pitino announced he will be suing the University of Louisville athletic association for a breach of contract. He is looking for over $35 Million. In a statement released through his lawyer he is claiming his contract was breached when he was suspended and ultimately fired. Jeff Greer with the Courier Journal helps break it down below.

Adidas Fires Back At Pitino

Adidas has come forward and asked a judge to dismiss Pitino’s case against the company. They have no new evidence, but they stand by the original findings and say that Pitino knew fully of the exchange of money to Brian Bowen’s family. It seems this is just the beginning of a very long, and ugly, battle.

The University of Louisville has parted ways with associate head coach Kenny Johnson.

The release was sent moments after the institution announced freshman Brian Bowen would not be eligible to compete for or practice with the men’s basketball team.

See the full press release below.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The University of Louisville has parted ways with associate head men’s basketball coach Kenny Johnson, terminating his employment per the provisions in his contract.  The university will have no further comment on this personnel matter.

Breaking: Brian Bowen Will NOT Play For Louisville

On Wednesday morning the University of Louisville announced Brian Bowen will NOT be eligible to compete for or practice with the institution’s men’s basketball program at any point in the future.

According to the press release, Bowen is eligible to transfer to another collegiate institution if he so chooses. It also states Bowen may choose to remain enrolled at the University of Louisville where he will continue to receive his athletics scholarship.

“Brian has been a responsible young man for the institution since he enrolled,” said UofL Interim Director of Athletics Vince Tyra.  “He has endeared himself to his teammates and the men’s basketball staff with a positive attitude during a very difficult period.”

The decision comes two months after the University of Louisville was implicated in an ongoing “pay-for-play” investigation conducted by the FBI.
