Pitino Calls SEC Second Rate: GET EM RICK!

When introducing his coaching staff last night at the Cardinal Caravan in Shelbyville, Rick Pitino stated that while at Florida, his son Richard learned how to do things in a “second-rate league”, but has now made it back to the big time level, returning to the Big East.

Video courtesy of WHAS11: Pitino makes the comment with about 30 seconds left in the clip.

I imagine this is retaliation for John Calipari’s comments from a couple of weeks ago, where he said that the Big East gets too many teams into the tournament.

I imagine this will cause a riot from the Cayut fayuns, but it’s hard to argue with Rick’s statement. SEC basketball is second-rate compared to the Big East.

Atta boy Rick!
