Video: Louisville’s Rick Pitino Thrashed A Student Reporter During Thursday’s Press Conference

first_imgRick Pitino in a press conference.Louisville’s men’s basketball team went one-and-done in the ACC Tournament, losing its quarterfinal game to North Carolina Thursday afternoon. Following the contest, Cardinals’ coach Rick Pitino held a brief press conference with reporters. The first question came from Derek Brightwell, a reporter for the school’s student newspaper, the Louisville Cardinal. Brightwell asked Pitino why his team has struggled against the zone so much this season; Pitino was apparently not impressed with the question. The question starts at the 0:56 mark.  It is fairly clear why Louisville has struggled against the zone this season; they don’t shoot the ball well, which is typically a requirement for good offense when facing a zone defense. But Pitino pulled the I’m a big-time college basketball coach and you’re a student reporter that doesn’t know anything move, and he came across as a pretty big jerk in the process. The student reporter was apparently OK with it, though. Got thrashed by Pitino at the presser, but the @CardChronicle comment section was talking about me. Also picked up 4 followers. #illtakeit— Derek Brightwell (@derekbrightwell) March 12, 2015Louisville will learn its NCAA Tournament fate Sunday night.[Courier-Journal]last_img read more

(Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)New York Knicks fans are not happy. The franchise, unfortunately slotted with the fourth pick (despite having the second-worst record in the league) in this year’s NBA Draft, chose Latvian center Kristaps Porzingis over former college stars like Justise Winslow, Frank Kaminsky and Stanley Johnson. The decision, which certainly may not turn out to be the wrong one in the long run, was met with a chorus of boos at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. One young fan was beside himself when he heard the news.Porzingis is just 19, so he may need a year or two to develop into a quality NBA player. It doesn’t look like Knicks fans are going to be patient heading into it all.last_img read more

Southgate: There’s no way I’d leave England

first_imgManager Gareth Southgate has said there’s no way he’d leave England to return to club management and believes his assistant Steve Holland is committed too.Holland spent six years as an assistant at Chelsea before linking up with Southgate for the national team and the pair have been linked with the role likely to be vacated by Maurizio Sarri.But Southgate says he and his staff are focused on getting England to the European Championships and continuing the recent progress they have made. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? “I’m committed to England, simple as that. I don’t need to hedge my bets in keeping doors open or keeping things alive,” he told a press conference“There’s no way that I would leave England at this point in time, to take any job.“The only thing on my mind is that we’ve got a European Championship next summer and we’ve got to keep improving to be the best possible team we can be for this country.“Why would I rush to leave that opportunity and chance to affect not just the football but the other parts that the role brings.“My sole focus is producing the best team possible for England.”Southgate acknowledged that his assistant would one day make the step up to management and was at pains to point out the influence of the man he called the best assistant in the game.“I’m sure that at some point in the future [Holland] is going to want to be a manager and take that opportunity. I don’t believe that would be now, because he is very committed to the work we are doing, looking forward to next summer.“But I also understand that, when you have a good staff, they’re going to be coveted by other people. That’s a healthy sign because you don’t want bad staff that nobody wants.“He’s the best assistant in the country, there’s no doubt in my mind about that. I’m very fortunate to have him with me.”England suffered a second semi-final defeat in as many years when they lost to the Netherlands in the Nations League on Thursday.They lost at the same stage in last year’s World Cup.Southgate insisted he and his players were hungry for success and improvement.“They don’t want to be settled and comfortable with semi-finals.“It is not enough for them, same for me.

Kirk Herbstreit Reveals Initial Thoughts On Ohio State-Michigan Game

Kirk Herbstreit Reveals Initial Thoughts On Ohio State-Michigan Game

first_imgKirk Herbstreit On College Football's Most "Intimidating" StadiumESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit has issued his initial thoughts on Saturday’s Ohio State-Michigan game.FOX has this year’s rivalry game, so Herbstreit will be able to make a pick on College GameDay, but for now, he’s just previewing it.Herbstreit thinks Ohio State should bring its best on Saturday.“They’re underdogs this week,” Herbstreit said this morning. “If a rivalry game at home when you’re an underdog doesn’t get you to bring their best, nothing can. One week, it’s their pass defense. Next week it’s, boy, they can’t seem to fit right against the run. They don’t seem to play inspired or together as a unit on defense. But if anything can bring that out, it’s a rivalry.“The defense seems to bring more emotion and love for one another and proves everybody wrong. At the end of the day, I don’t know if it’s good enough. Even if they do bring that game, is it good enough to beat a very determined Michigan football team?”Herbstreit thinks Michigan has been great this season, but the Wolverines could be vulnerable.“Michigan has shown potential vulnerability, but in my opinion, they have not played with the same edge against Rutgers and Indiana,” Herbstreit addded. “They did play that way against Penn State, Michigan State and Wisconsin. That’s the Michigan team that will show up Saturday in Columbus. Very focused. You can feel the ‘me’ around this team. This team is on a mission so we’ll see if Ohio State can match that enthusiasm on Saturday.”Ohio State and Michigan are set to kick off at noon E.T.The game will be on FOX.last_img read more
