The Five Stages Of Pitino Grief

Posted on Sep 29 2011 - 9:53am by Brent Lepping

After we had some choice words last night on the radio for Rick Pitino and his love-affair with the Big East and inability to see the bigger picture, I stumbled across this entry over at an ACC blog called Run The Floor. The pictures pretty much sum it up…..here’s a quick snippet.

Rick Pitino is angry. Rick Pitino is confused, but grieving is confusing, so cut him some slack. This is a quick pictorial primer to let you know where Rick Pitino has been, and where he’s going. Hang in there Ricky Pitino lovers, this is going to be hard to watch. How can Syracuse and Pitt be leaving? What is UConn thinking? This is the Big Fu*@ing  East! The ACC is a bunch of backwater programs run by rednecks. There’s no Rick Pitino in the ACC!

Stage 1: Shock/Disbelief and Denial

 

Stage 2: Anger (current location for Rick Pitino)

Stage 3: Bargaining and Guilt

Stage 4: Depression

Stage 5: Acceptance and Hope

    I'll play devils advocate here, I honestly don't love Rick as much as others…He's a great coach no doubt and that staple of the program but his off-court actions have disinterested me personally from him. Anyways, do you think that Rick has so many friends and contacts that are Big East people that he is playing this to save face? Maybe he is smarter than we think? I don't know but I think Rick is smart enough to know that L'ville needs to get into the Big 12…maybe he just doesn't want to come out and make it public? Maybe, maybe not…what do you guys think?

      Unlike Big Fagg…I do not agree with Mr. J's assessment. No, Rick is not doing this because he's smart! Are you kidding me? This is the same man that held a press conference without permission of the administration and blasted the media. He was referencing "on the day Ted Kennedy died" and half way blamed his affair because of 9/11. Are you f**king serious!?!?! I'm sorry…but Mr. Sypher has lost his marbles…he's completely off the reservation.

      You have to understand, a man with his GIANT ego needs attention. He's no longer the popular coach that he once was and of course he senses this. He constantly babbles on about things as if his opinion merits any consideration. The worst thing someone could have done was allow him to have a blog. I'm sorry but the sooner this man moves along the better. Pitino First makes too much money for results we've endured.

        Oh…a side not for Brent. You have Pitino checked off at Stage 2 as his current location. I have to disagree somewhat. I believe in some shape or form he's currently ALL 5 stages.

          Way to drop a homosexual slur, real classy. Now I know UK fans, such as yourself, love to use all types of racial and various homosexual slurs, but dude this is a Louisville web site, post your garbage somewhere else.

            Way to drop a slur? Nice post buddy. So, tell me again your thoughts on this article.

            Hate to inform you, but I've been on this website since the beginning. Take your sensitive a$$ back to your scout board.
