“Louisville is not Kentucky. You take a bite of the apple and think, ‘you know what, we can get a Top 20 kid and all we got to do is wash our hands of it, we didn’t pay him, Adidas paid him. I think it’s the enticement of one last run to win a championship and then call it a career, that’s probably how they’ve always done it there.”

Doug Gottlieb was on The Dan Patrick Show explaining why Rick Pitino, the man Gottlieb called the greatest college basketball coach in the modern era, would ever feel the urge to use illegitimate tactics to get the upper hand in an ultra-competitive recruiting region of college hoops.
