Soft Rick Pitino Can’t Handle Heat At UNC
Louisville Cardinals head coach Rick Pitino had what we like to call an overreaction. He went after a fan during halftime of Louisville’s loss to North Carolina tonight. Word is that the fan told him ‘he sucks’ then the Carolina fan was ejected. I don’t believe that for a second. I’m sure the fan made some reference to his 15 seconds at an Italian restaurant or something in that regard. Pitino needs to have tougher skin than what he presented on Wednesday night. This comes with the territory.

Unless the fan said something about Pitino’s family or something to that effect, he should have moved on and not let the fan get to him. Kentucky’s head coach John Calipari had the ENTIRE Missouri student section chanting ‘CAL YOU SUCK! CAL YOU SUCK!’ while he did his halftime talk with ESPN. Pitino comes off looking terrible here. Every other ACC opponent saw how he reacted and guess what, they’re going to try to get under his skin for the remainder of the season. The Louisville coach deserved to lose tonight for simply acting like a fucking loser chump.
Hey Rick, you suck. You going to eject me?
