    Has anyone stopped to think that he's taking these measures b/c he truly had no idea this stuff was going on?

    No, he has nothing to lose at this point and is an egomaniac. I kind of don't blame him in a way. What's the worst that happens? It's proven for 100% fact he cheated. I think pretty much everyone thinks that already.

    You don't actually believe that.

    This is why I never understood his reasoning for suing Adidas. Too much can come out about him personally in the process and Adidas cares very little about that.

    UL on the other hand will be eager to settle out of court. The university athletics could be ruined if this thing goes to trial and people are forced to testify under oath. UL has a lot more to lose than Adidas in my opinion.

    I don't think Rick deserves a penny. Him knowing or not makes no difference to me. He had too many scandals at UL, and while he won a lot of games, it was at the cost of making Louisville a national punchline.

    They'll settle out of court for much less than what he is suing for...

    I actually really do want to believe Rick. I don't know what it is, but for some reason I actually believe him. Could be dementia setting in I guess.

    Didn't I read/hear that the federal indictment indicated Petino knew what was going on? Allegedly Pitino agreed to call a guy at Adidas to request that they provide the money requested by the family of recruit Bowen.

    Didn't say I did. Thought had crossed my mind though.
