"The slap-hitter known as the Big East hit the shot heard around college athletics."
"For Louisville, they don't have to go through the wear and tear that we go through week to week. So this is a big game for them, because it's a non-conference game, it'll be competitive for them. So they'll end the season whatever and a couple losses. They just don't play the schedule we play, so it's a big game for them, for that reason. It's a quality non-conference opponent."
John is a tireless worker and for so many years, his time and energy have been consumed by working to make our league better for all of its membership. We at the University of Louisville are indebted to John for his efforts in navigating our university’s move to the BIG EAST Conference. He is a true gentleman in every sense of the word and has terrific character and integrity. John is a good friend, we have appreciated our association with him and we wish him the very best.
"I'll look at it, figure it out," Izzo said. "(It's) something for me to put in my computer and say, you know what, 'We've kind of played everybody.'

In accordance with NCAA regulations, it is the University's practice to self-report possible violations to the NCAA. We self-reported issues with drug testing to the NCAA, and there is currently an ongoing inquiry. The inquiry does not involve any current SU student-athletes. To ensure the integrity of the ongoing process, we are unable to comment further at this time.
Rick Pitino was, in my mind, a heroic figure when he went to Kentucky, given all the sanctions against Kentucky and all of that, and he won so quickly, and as conceited as he is and was — I always really liked him, he’s a Long Island boy and I was used to all that stuff — I don’t think he’s anywhere near that now. It almost looks like this second act at Louisville, it’s almost, not sad, because he wins a lot, but he doesn’t win championships, there’s something deflating about it, and almost deflating about him.
