Rick Pitino admits doing the dirty deed

Has sex with her in a restaurant and then throws some money her way for an abortion. You stay classy, Rick.

The only way this could be better is if he had actually thrown the cash on her, in the restaurant, post-coitus. An honest-to-Christ money shot.

Gary, you actually had respect for Rick Pitino, the man? I can understand respecting his coaching ability, but I can't remember a time when he was regarded as anything other than a carpetbagging sleaze.

He's not in a part of the country that looks kindly upon adultery and abortion. On the other hand, he makes the kids put the ball in the basket, bringing joy to all who attend or live near the university! Yay!

It'd be a bigger deal if it were Billy Gillespie (or whatever flavor of the week is coaching UK this season). Lexington has UK and not much else, but Louisville has a Hard Rock Cafe, race horses and lots of Checkers locations. It also tends to vote Democrat.

Whereas 9/10 of Kentucky lives and dies with UK basketball and holds tight to its guns and religion, Louisville's a little more open-minded.

Louisville also has riverboat gambling across the river in Indiana.

However, as "willmorriss" stated above, there are some possible ethical violations of state employees and his contract, which the U of L president seems willing to fall on the sword for if needed and are similar to those of SC Gov. Sanford.

This was more or less the point I made to a coworker today: That in the South, collegiate sport will trump Christian morality seven ways to Sunday (though if you can get both at once, a la Tim Tebow, that's a mega bonus.) If Nick Saban knocked up a woman and made it public, the next day, you'd have 3,000 fans show up at the Athletic Department offices with coat hangers at the ready. Roll Tide!

But then think about Larry Eustachy. He worked in a fairly, if not very conservative state (Iowa), did much less in terms of violating his contract, more or less his marriage, but he resigned. Rick is too arrogant to quit. Remember Pitino is the target of this extortion effort, and there are no pictures of his incident, just his "coming clean"...six years later.

While he is at it, he may as well tell us how Jamal Mashburn and Rodrick Rhodes happened to get to Lexington? And for years, I thought that Calipari was the bigger dirtbag after hearing about what in coaching is known as "The Charles Smith Story".

You summed it up well. Pitino's ego is the size of a mid-range suburb, and his moral fiber is like tissue paper. Resignation isn't anywhere on Pitino's radar, unless there's a juicier contract offer from another school. And no one on UL's board would dare suggest to Pitino that he resign, lest Pitino spit in their face and set about nailing said trustee's wife on the floor of a Waffle House.

If I'm reading correctly, Pitino and his lady friend made the arrangements for the abortion at the condo of her future husband - while he was present. If that ain't pull, I don't know what is.

First off, I think that it is obvious that until issues went federal, that local scribes took a blind eye (in addition to Andy Katz and Chet Forte). Blind eye is also a pun as Dick Vitale never disses a coach. i have not heard what ESPN Radio's Bob Valvano has said, but his late brother was by no means honorable (as if any college hoops coach is. See: John Wooden and Sam Gilbert). As long as there is no official payment to college football and basketball players, the underworld will exist. You know that "friends of a program" will pay for abortions for athletes as well.

Pitino only talked about teh past seven months, yet the affair occurred in 2003. WTF?

He should have know that while you can forget your past, the past won't forget you.
