Rick Pitino should stick to references to “The Godfather.”
The Louisville coach chose to go in a different direction at Big East Media Day on Wednesday, when he again made it known that he did not agree with Pitt and Syracuse leaving the Big East for the ACC.
We’ll let Pitino take it from here.
“My problem is not them leaving,” he said, according to The Dagger on Wednesday. “My problem is you did it in 48 hours. Don’t run away with a girl after one date when you’ve been dating someone else for three or four years.
“You’ve been dating this woman for 30 years, show a little respect.”
We’re not joking; Pitino actually said that. It’s the same Pitino who two years ago admitted to cheating on his wife of 27 years with Karen Sypher after business hours at a Louisville restaurant in 2003.
It’s a layup to sports bloggers near and far; maybe Pitino should retire his analogy career.
