It won't come as shock to some of you that I am a Louisville fan. I have admitted it before and despite the recent negativity surrounding the University of Louisville and its basketball coach I stick by my team. I am not a fair-weather fan.
For the last several weeks I have sat idly by and listened to and read all of the negative talk about Rick Pitino and the University of Louisville. I have read the rubbish, listened to the gossip and held my tongue while trying to formulate my own unbiased opinions about the situation. I have even had heated debates with my friend and colleague Larry Vaught about the situation. I guess we can agree to disagree. And we certainly do.
When the news broke about Pitino admitting his transgressions, the media had a field day. The story was plastered on the front cover of every major newspaper and it was the lead story on many of the local and national news channels. I guess news must have been slow that day.
