Pitino, you suck!

Really? That’s supposedly all it took for a fan to get ejected and for Louisville coach Rick Pitino to act like the “Catch Me Outside Girl” right before halftime of Wednesday’s Louisville loss UNC. Boston Celtics fans used to tell Pitino he sucked every single day when he was trying to coach Antoine Walker and Paul Pierce in the NBA during the late 90s. I’m assuming he hears worse every single day so I’m just not buying ESPN sideline reporter Maria Taylor’s story that “Pitino, you sucked” made him lose it and made UNC coach Roy Williams even give the man an apology.

After the 74-63 loss, Pitino addressed the “coward” and verbal exchange.

“He just got in my face and said something I didn’t like.” Said Pitino. “But I take it from the students all the time. You expect it from students. But from an adult? And then turns his back on me like he’s a coward. And he is a coward. But North Carolina is a classy place, and one person doesn’t speak for the rest of the people.”
