Almost all of the bigtime programs are dirty. It's like an iceberg, they only spot 10% of it.

Pitino is for all intents and purposes, gone. I thought he was not only a great basketball coach, but a good guy away from the court until the last seven years or so per all the craziness at Louisville. I credited him when he oddly went back to the pros for a second time and failed, he at least admitted to lying when he said it wasn't about the money when he left Kentucky. "It was about the money"- something I've yet to hear any other coach or player profess when they leave for "greener" pastures. Was I wrong all along about Pitino? Perhaps. But part of me believes the entire infrastructure of the NCAAs and the way schools allow these programs to operate as runaway locomotives turns these coaches into something they once perhaps were not. "Temptation is the root of all evil".
