Pitino ecstatic following Sugar Bowl win


In case anybody was wondering, Rick Pitino is still raving about the University of Louisville football team’s 33-23 win over Florida in the BCS Sugar Bowl.

“That was absolutely awesome,” he said during Saturday morning TV show. “The coaching staff found out what Louisville’s supporters are really like. They show up 30,000-plus, the Gators had under 10,000. The football coaches and Charlie found out about the fans here, and how they get behind everything of excellence.”

It’s a WHAS-TV video which means it will take a while to load. When you finally give up, it will begin. Honest. Don’t quit on it.
