Sports 101 is taking a unique perspective on the sex scandal at the University of Louisville which involves men's basketball coach Rick Pitino. It has been reported that Pitino cheated on his wife. Whether this is true or not, I don't know.
What I do know is that the reaction to a professor cheating on their spouse by an athlete goes unnoticed and unreported in the newspapers. College students are not children. The impact of a coach having extramarital relations with another person should dissapoint them, but this story is not going to affect how hard they play on the court.
Coach Pitino's image has always been suspect, but you don't play college basketball to learn life lessons from a coach. That is what your parents, religious organization, and friends are for.
Sports 101 memo: Coach, how can you look a recruit in the eye and give him an honest commitment to him and his family, when you aren't loyal to your own?
