Here is how you could hire Pitino and make it work.

Rick Pitino wants to get back into college basketball. He knows he is 8-balled right now unless a University has significant measures to have a short leash on him.

Here is how Clemson could do this and make it work. Have a special adminstration assistant coach on the basketball team. Every recruiting process and decision has to go through the athletic department director and School adminstration. The assistant would report things to the adminstration on who the staff is recruiting and the process and make sure it abides by school and NCAA regulations.

Pitino and his staff would also have the special assistant approve their recruiting process handling.

The special adminstration assistant basically works as a middle man or person to the basketball program and School adminstration.

That person would stay away from Pitino's coaching in game and practice situations where there is no need to. Pitino would basically be comfortable with that because of his strong coaching knowledge and skill.

Sounds good and some school will think of this so why not us?


Yep, you get the gig as AD at UGA and you are all set. Don't

the obvious flaw here is this "administrative asst" could not go on the road recruiting, so they would not be privy to those conversations. you'd basically be relying on pitino and staff to be "honest' and tell you everything about every conversation, in person and phone, with a kid and his family. not sure there is a person in the world who trusts slick rick that much.

Has it occurred to you that without cheating he is just another basketball coach? He made his living on cheating, JUCOs and marginal academic players. None of which would fly at CU

Nor many Jucos? Not many. Pitino is one of the great strategic coaches in the country. Remember what he did at Boston U and Providence...


"WRONG"

Not necessarily a Pitino supporter,but you are dead wrong on his coaching ability and the make up of his team's.

No thanks, I’d much rather have Brownell.

Pitino isn’t worth the baggage. Not at Clemson. We are better than that.

I'd rather have Shyatt back than that creep.***

i bet Pitino ends up at Oklahoma State***

Not a good plan. Better to stay the course with Coach BB.

Why would we want to hire a known cheat ?

Not a no but a H3LL NO!!!!

Nah. I think a line has to be drawn and hiring a guy with his reputation would be crossing that line. It would be like when Louisville hired Bobby Petrino back and everybody looked at that whole University as a sleaze ball school. No thanks.


We already had Tates Locke ... learn from the past!***

Pitino will be coaching again, when have ever heard of


Posted: Feb 17, 2019 10:35 PM
 

This so called “blackballing” ever sticking? Pearl is still coaching, calipari is still coaching,... pitino is just on a sabbatical. He’ll be back in prime time if he still wants to. It’s all about winning buddy. He’ll probably be the next UCLA coach before too long without any of those type of handcuffing measures.


The only thing worse than this idea is the UNCheat scandal.

Why not use the UNCheat no class method to have a great basketball team ? Screw academics and roll on the tarheel way.

We ain’t the tar holes. No one will protect CU when the NCAA comes calling. See Missouri as an example

I appreciate you are trying to think out of the box to change the fortunes of Clemson basketball.

However, if you don't trust the guy you are hiring and have to hire a monitor to report on his every move, you are not in a winning situation.

I hope we figure out a way to turn around our basketball program but do not think Pitino is the way to go.

You must he kidding. I would not want him within miles of Clemson. I may consider hiring him to coach the Chickens, but frankly, even they don't deserve him. He is on his own level of reprehensible.


Re: Here is how you could hire Pitino and make it work.


Posted: Feb 18, 2019 7:11 AM
 

I'd sooner you just do away with basketball all together if he is the only scumball you can think of to coach Clemson.

RP was so bad these guys fired him for "ethical" reasons:



Yeah, at least their trustees a clothed this time.


But did you know the difference between a Louisville student and a coot? Literacy. Well, Louisville can spell the first letter of literacy, coots just start screaming when you ask them to spell




So basically a get back guy whose only time off is during games***

correct. fact is that anyone even mentioning pitinos name is either trying to be funny or is just an idiot, plain and simple.

I'd rather have worse than Brownell than hire Pitino***

Auburn.


That sounds like babysitting


Posted: Feb 18, 2019 9:41 AM
 

Besides, who is to say he can get desired results without cheating? No one knows since he's always done it.
