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.

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

And compared to money being made off their backs it's a drop in the bucket. The NCAA is a criminal organization exploiting people for monetary gain. The NCAA should be disbanded and all high ranking officials put in jail.

dang ....yeah I d say his coaching days anywhere is over .   Escort s for recuiting purposes.   

He can say hey to to Paterno one day.   Sports sucked in this world ....LOL
Paterno was a whistle blower who met his obligations under the law.

Pitino is a scum bag who could potentially go to jail. There is no comparison at all.

If they paid a player 100k, he should lose his job.
I wonder what Calipari's guys are getting?  He's the one attracting the best talent.

overreact much? there are a herd and a half of issues in universities that need addressing before spending time jailing these guys and gals.

really, the NCAA has a ton of problems with major sports. but other sports (lacross, track and field, etc.) have benefitted greatly. the NCAA and university sports are more than just the "big two" and pros.

According to the most recent Graduation Success Rate data, 82 percent of Division I freshmen scholarship student-athletes who entered college in 2004 earned a degree. In Division II, 73 percent of freshmen student-athletes who entered college in 2004 graduated.

for non-student atheletes? it is around 59%. it might be best not judge all of the NCAA efforts based upon what is shown to us on TV on saturdays and is popular.

Players aren't forced to go to college.  If they choose to do so, they should obey the rules.

And many many other major corporations make millions upon millions of dollars every year off the back off employees making meager salaries, so what's your point??  Yes they're not getting paid, but they're not having to pay off tuition, room, and board for however long they decide to stay.

If they don't like it they can go play in Europe, and if they do, good for them, but if you're going to play in the NCAA these are the rules

Pitino has a long history of being crooked.  I think it just caught up with him.

It is a LOT easier to graduate when African-American Studies' courses are CREATED for athletes to take in which they NEVER have to attend class and they have to write ONE paper that is NEVER seen nor graded by the real professor!!  (See UNC!!!)  And I am SURE that they are NOT the only major college doing this!!!

In Pitino's defense (sort of) the coaching job he did getting Providence to the Final 4 ranks right there with Brad's Butler team coming within a Hayward heave of winning the national title. Pitino took over a team Joe Mullaney recruited - that was terrible - implemented his uptempo style and got Providence to a Final 4.  Billy Donovan the year before looked like a CYO player - fat, slow but with some talent.  Pitino transformed him into a college star.

He's a good 'coach' coach. But there's the Slick Rick side which he's always had apparently.
