PARADISE ISLAND, BAHAMAS – The University of Louisville men’s basketball team will face Old Dominion in its first game of the 2016 Battle 4 Atlantis college basketball tournament, which begins on Wednesday, Nov. 23 at the Atlantis resort in Paradise Island, Bahamas.
Coach Rick Pitino went on 840 WHAS this afternoon and was asked about Coach Calipari’s inflammatory comments from last week that were a blatant shot at Rick Pitino. Here are his responses:
That is all for now. We are still waiting for Swaggy P to come out and when he does I hope he takes no prisoners. We got a small taste today. This is not a UL/uk thing, this is Calipari always being a Jack*** thing. Go Cards!
Well this afternoon we got some recruiting news:
In the above picture, it looks like he is probably upset by reading the title. Let me explain though. I am not mocking coach yet conveying what he made me feel. I almost burst into tears listening to this live. The first song I thought of after he stopped was So Emotional. Call me a wuss, I am cool with that. I have never seen Coach P like this or heard him like this either. This was a special team and despite the bad times I feel it will fuel us for good times these next 2 years. Thanks to Damion Lee & Trey Lewis for helping us get through this rough year. Thanks to Mike Rutherford (da gawd) for putting them on Youtube. Click the read more button for the videos.
After the Cards took down # 1/2 UNC last night you would think they would have went back to the dorm and relaxed. Nah. This is a very special group of kids that make us love them more and more very week. Check out pics from their trip last night at Frazier rehab.
This week…..on 55…..
Additions, Subtractions, Super Bowl & JC Penneys? Yeah I try to cover it all. From people going crazy on me to signing day to the omission of a certain someone, it’s here. A powerful and swift campaign swept twitter last Tuesday and you know what? It worked. Well here we go. Once again, I share with you the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This …..is….55
