Society is way too PC at this point. It's not even the act that's so bad, it's the reaction to it...and it's not even the reaction to it, but everyone expecting a reaction. It's like as soon as someone even sniffs doing something wrong, the public expects it to blow up and become a big news story fiasco.
I agree with Rob. I don't see the big deal. No one that isn't on their high horse would think this is a big deal. I'm not saying it's the most moral thing to do, but guys in college do a lotttttttt worst than that.
And I don't believe Pitino knew about it. No reason why he'd risk an in-tact legacy and he doesn't need to do that to recruit top kids to play for him.
He may not have known... I'm with you about that, I assume he didn't... but that doesn't let him off the hook... he runs the program, so the buck stops with him... if one of his assistants was doing it, it's because Pitino failed to do the very basic job of ensuring his assistants know what's acceptable to do on his watch... which means it's his responsibility...
If the place wasn't a major basketball factory with rabid alumni, and/or if Pitino wasn't a brand name, they'd can him for that... lots of places would... we'll see if Louisville does by the time the dust settles... I seriously doubt it... this is the problem with places that harbor championship aspirations... but you never know...
