Will Mick or Mac replace him?????

They are not firing Pitino. Seriously.

I have said this elsewhere, but UL fans LOVE this type of thing. In their own minds, they exult over being the "bad boy" program of the NCAA and I think it makes them feel like success when their coaches and/or players are involved in scandals. (As in "If you're not cheating, you're not trying hard enough." Therefore, this is proof positive of their coaches doing a bang-up (poor choice of metaphor??? I think not!) job.)

And when Pitino does eventually retire, I would be willing to bet they are not going to poach Mick. Why? Because (a) they consider UC "below" their stature and so they're more likely to go somewhere else, and (b) because Mick runs a clean program and they, as I said elsewhere, don't want a "clean" program. The last time they brought in a "clean" guy to clean up a major program was when they replaced Bobby Petrino with Steve Kragthorpe... Then they got really mad when Krags (who was an incompetent boob, FWIW) ran off all Bobby P's "talent." They won't go that route again.

Pitino will leave when he decides to retire, or is poached by a bigger program. When that happens, I imagine UL will fish Calipari an offer...if it worked once, it could work again....
