It has been a roller-coaster season for the fans of the University of Louisville Basketball team. It has been even more up and down for fans of Coach Rick Pitino. I was told the day the post season ban was levied that Coach P was done. 2 weeks ago I was told Ramsey would be overthrown and he would stay. Then just last week I was told he was gone again. I know what you are saying. You need new sources. Hear me out. My guy that has the info on this particular situation is never wrong. He may waiver during the process but he always comes through. Late this afternoon he told me new info would be coming out tonight that I would like. I instantly thought, here we go again.

Going into a new conference, we have to adapt quickly and move forward, and I’ve been really happy with the attitude and the leadership of the senior group.
