    But these allegations are far from proven.

    And I still do. Pitino took over a program with NCAA sanctions that nearly got the death penalty and made Kentucky into a mid 90s powerhouse. He will always be remembered for that.

    My biggest issue was Pitino always thinking he was bigger than Kentucky, and truthfully, Louisville as well. That's why I enjoy the rivalry more with Cal as coach and completely dominating the series. While Pitino did restore Kentucky, there were four banners hanging in the rafters before he ever came to Lexington.

    Pitino turned UK around in a hurry. I believe in his second year they finished in Top 10 but were on probation.

    And I thought they had 5 in the rafters before Rick got there?

    Yea they won 22 games his 2nd year. I don't remember where they were ranked at the end. They were still on probation that year so they couldn't go to the NCAA's. Pitino did put up title number six in 96. That 96 team is still the best UK team I have ever seen in all my years of following them,
    I never did mind that Pitino went to Louisville. I have never really understood all the angst in that. He left UK for the pros. When that didn't work out you knew he would get a high profile college job. Louisville just happened to be the first one available. Although I think he did have a shot at the Michigan job too. When I started to really dislike him was when he got involved with that crazy woman and all that sorriness around that episode. I've never had any respect for him as a person since. I don't doubt that he knew at least some of what was going on with this current escapade. Even if he didn't, he is paid to know everything that happens within his program. If this is proven to be true then he should go down with the ship.

    Cal does know how to defer to the fans. Pitino always had a certain smirk that really turned off a lot of people even when things were going extremely well. I don't sense that nearly as much with Cal.

    From an IU perspective, I remember Rick's first year. The Hoosiers were coming off a great season the year before but lost key pieces. IU went into Rupp with a freshman laden team and beat the 'Cats by 30. I was shocked and couldnt believe how far UK had fallen. The very next year(Rick's second) UK came to Bloomington, IU escaped with like a 3 point victory. I remember thinking to myself, "Wow that was fast". That IU team won the B1G that year and finished #3 in the polls. UK finished #9. Pitino turned the ship around in nano second.

    Calipari doesn't think he's bigger than Kentucky.

    He also, as far as I know, hasn't had an affair with a deranged woman on a restaurant table. And then played the holier-than-thou/ my brother-in-law died in 9/11 card.

    Actually that 30 point beating came when Sutton was still the coach in his last season. Pitino's first team nearly beat IU in Indianapolis. They lost by two points and had a chance with the game winning shot. That sort of kicked off the Pitino's Bombino's team. That was his first team and it was miracle that they went 13-13. IIRC they did lose to IU the next season in Bloomington by about 3 or 4 points.

    Jefferson County Commonwealth Attorney Thomas Wine (4 year undergrad & law school at UL ... had Andre McGee's attorney Scott Cox present at his swearing in) using the media to engage in attempted witness intimidation.

    As an Indiana boy, I have been seeing reports that Evansville native JaQuan Lyle is mentioned in the book. IU had him, then he committed to the 'Ville. Later de-committed from the Cards and chose Oregon. Then left there due to some sex charges levied against other players. He is in enrolled at Ohio St. now. The plot thickens.

    Not that I don't believe this woman's story but in the book recap she said 700 texts to McGee were deleted by a virus. Of course that is possible but it's quite a coincidence that all those texts just disappeared.
