Rick Pitino and the Louisville basketball team have been on the front pages recently after coming under F.B.I. investigation for their involvement in a scandal where recruits were allegedly funneled to the program by Adidas. Pitino and A.D. Tom Jurich have been relieved of their duties in the fallout.
Even though the Louisville football team didn’t have anything to do with this scandal – Bobby Petrino only steals playbooks and pays off mistresses – they felt the wrath of N.C. State fans in the fourth quarter of their 37-24 loss to the Wolfpack in Raleigh, when the home fans broke out an ‘F.B.I.’ chant.
This was bound to happen sometime, and will probably be a nightly feature during the basketball team’s road games this year. It sucks because these kids had nothing to do with the scandal, and Rick Pitino will never have to face this music.
