  1. NOW IT'S RICK'S TURNWed, 12 Aug 2009 14:26:11 EST
    Rick Pitino, basketball coach at the University of Louisville had consensual sex with Karen Cunagin Sypher at a Louisville restaurant. Thats what he told police. Seems he was at a Louisville restaurant in 2003 and was drinking, and He also told police that he later gave Sypher $3,000 to have an abortion, this, too, according to Louisville Metro Police reports, which were obtained by the Courier-Journal.

At this point in time, either fans could care less about players doping or theyre numb to it. Whats really created from this mess not who did it but whos next? More...
