If they paid a player 100k, he should lose his job.

Woj is reporting that he's been probing NBA teams about a potential NBA comeback, though he's received no interest so far.

Reportedly the AD was fired for refusing to fire Pitino himself. Way to fall on your sword there champ.

Woj also reports Pitino's been looking for an NBA job but no one is interested  ;D

Can't imagine why.

Success is a choice.

Because success is a choice.

Pitino is as sleezy as it gets, there's no denying that.

But screw the NCAA. You know what is unethical, not being allowed to pay college players. The NCAA officials are the ones who deserve to be thrown in jail, not the people paying these athletes what is rightfully theirs.

You can't say it's rightfully theirs when it's not. It's against the rules. Plain and simple. That's the system that these athlete's operate under so that's the rules they and the organizations are expected to follow. Your argument is the same as saying that the desk that you work at during work hours is rightfully yours because you sit there and your boss doesn't. It doesn't work like that.

Also, though it doesn't matter to the argument I'm making, these athletes are far from crying poverty. The schools take care of them without the need for monetary compensation.

Pretty predictable once it was leaked that the FBI probe was looking at the University of Louisville. As the FBI investigation expands my guess is we will see more of this.

Anyone that has had to pay student loans knows that these players are well compensated. If they chose to leave school early and not complete their degrees, that is their own choice, but 4 years on average is 100-120 thousand dollars of tuition and room and boarding at many of these schools

Looks like unpaid leave for Pitino and paid leave for Jurich.  So not fired yet.

That said, Pitino will almost certainly be fired in 10 days when the contractual wait period is up.
