    MASONHOOPS.COM: How will you pay your players. Hookers or Adidas cash?
    Pitno: WEll, that's a touchy subject. But we plan to do what we gotta do.

    I doubt it. Even the most knee pad laden homers for G Mas can see that the Gaels have been to the NCAAT 3 times as much as Patriot.

    I'll take that bet. How much are you comfortable wagering?

    Pitino was on the Dan Patrick Show yesterday. Said he looked at three college jobs where he thought he had a legitimate shot:

    Iona- close to his NYC apartment and his son lives a few miles away
    Holy Cross- knows a bunch of alumni and some of the BOV
    Providence (Michigan was looking at Cooley and had he left, Pitino was interested)

    He was looking for smaller situation than Louisville. Looking for a Catholic school and for a school that aspired to be much better than where they are at. Said Iona's President and AD are committed to basketball and view basketball as the best vehicle to grow the school.

    Makes sense. Private schools have more autonomy in hiring decisions.

    Really? Why?

    It's not just a major sport in a power conference but a major sport in a power conference located in Louisiana. Corruption isn't just rampant, it's an ingrained part of the culture that still revers "The Kingfish" Huey Long.

    Until the NCAA forces their hand, you think the good boosters are going to give two sh!ts about paying players as long as they're winning? Shaquille O'Neal jokes about it now how much he got paid there back in the day.

    Don't you have someone to stalk on FB and post their home address?
