College basketball fans in the state of Kentucky are gonna be in for a real treat during the next few years.

Pitino can’t use the “demonstrate good character” speech on them anymore, so I guess anything goes.

Joe B. Hall and Denny Crum would be proud.

This is not surprising.

It probably didn’t- big schools cover their butts pretty well most of the time when they’re happy.

Things sometimes seem to snowball. Fall out of favor/embarass the school, and all of the sudden, things that the locals shielded you from start cropping up. Not saying that is happening to Ricky P yet, but it will be interesting to watch the next few months/years.

…and a truly shocking declaration from Pitino regarding their (lack of) punishment:

[QUOTE]Anytime you defy a police officer, it’s serious. … They will be punished and are being punished right now. [B]But no, they will not miss game time[/B]. [/QUOTE]

Who is Pitino do judge their character? :tongue:

So the officers were wearing shirts that read “police” on front and back and Jennings claims he had no idea he was dealing with police? Kinda makes you wonder.

Check out his IQ and SAT scores. They could be questionable. :shades:
