Pitino Bragging Rights Series Set Up; Louisville vs Minnesota

Louisville and Minnesota are working on finalizing a home and home series starting next year at Louisville. Pitino bragging rights as Rick coaches Louisville and his son Richard coaches Minnesota.

Rick Pitino Sr. also reported this week that he isn’t preparing to retire anytime soon…

Pitino said during a news conference discussing a roster that’s preparing to enter the tough Atlantic Coast Conference that his “passion and enthusiasm is better at 61 than it was at 31, and I had great passion back then.

“I think it’s the players the last four years that have enhanced that passion. … They stir my drink because they are so enthusiastic, so willing to learn and have such a great attitude.”
