I do. Do I need counseling?
Before there was space or time there was rock and roll.
I think you mean natural?
I don't mind him.
"A good burn is like good sex. It's simple, to the point, and leaves your victim totally destroyed."--Kenny Drebsen
Ok. I do.
I can't stand him, personally. He was pretty classless with how he handled things when he was the coach of the Celtics. At the college level, he wins when he has stacked teams. There are a lot of coaches that could win with the talent he has had at times at both Kentucky and Louisville.
I love you Todd. You are so sensible.
No, dude is a total slime ball. I don't like him at all.

Life is hard. It's really hard if you're stupid.
well getting talent is part of his job, no? I don't get this argument against college coaches.
That's a great point, as recruiting is a major part of the job. Being the head coach at Kentucky and Louisville, though, you have to be nearly incompetent to not be able to recruit great talent every year. And when people talk about someone being a great coach, they're usually referring to what he does once the players are on campus in terms of developing them, motivating them, game planning, in-game strategies, etc.
Wonder why people don't like him?
He's a known philanderer, liar, cheater. And besides the fact that he comes across these days as
a recovering druggie and slimeball, he's just peachy. Anyone who has trouble remembering the sordid
affair he carried on in Kentucky a few years back, can be edified, here: http://www.forbes.com/sites/allenstjohn/2012/04/13/lessons-from-an-18-million-affair-why-rick-pitino-survived-a-scandal-and-bobby-petrino-couldnt/

Good coach. Crappy person. Resembles a frog. That just about sums up my views on Pitino.
