    Torrel Harris better warm up the coffee and get some cookies ready. He and his family plan to host 11 in-home visits for Tobias Harris beginning Sept. 9.

    “We are finalizing some home visits and we’ll really have strong interviews with these coaches to see how his style of play fits into their game style of play,” Torrel said Thursday in Manhattan at a practice for Friday’s Boost Mobile Elite 24 event.

    “We’re trying to watch those situations where coaches will allow him to show his versatility.”

    Here’s the schedule, which was emailed to me and then confirmed by Torrel.

    • AZ,

      Are you hearing some whispers about more ladies?

    • Would he and the AD be asked for their resignation?

      Is the LAST NAIL…..the discovery of another woman, from the past?

      People are talking more and more…..
      YOU heard the basic arguements….

      Imagine a woman who signed a NON-DISCLOURE and was provided with a lump sum. She is unable to discuss any type of affair.
      She is unable to confirm of such an affair. I hope it is not a UK lady…that would surely create an EVEN MORE HATED rivalry. WOW.

      When two parties agree on terms, it is referred to as an agreement.
      When TWO parties DO NOT agree on terms, IT is referred to as EXTORTION.
      What a FINE LINE it is….and ONE can be make that line FUZZY,easily.
      How? “K” was under the belief that an agreement was mutually understood ;but, like all neg….some last minute changes preventing the signing.
      SOUNDS like a Fatal Attraction MOVIE.

      Basic Agruements:
      “1. No one completely recovers from a scandal of this magnitude. Pitino’s character will now be at the center of every discussion about every facet of U of L basketball ever conducted.

      2. U of L fans deserve better. They have given support to Pitino both financially and emotionally. He has betrayed their trust and brought shame to their program in a incident th at can in no way be turned into something positive for the University. Louisville has much too proud of a tradition, and fan base to allow this to go unpunished.

      3. If Pitino is honest with himself, he has to admit that this is going to be a drain on is ability, not only tho coach, but to do all of the things that go along with being an ambassador of the U of L program. Interviews, public speaking engagement, fund raising, TV and radio, Internet; these things are all going to interfere with his efforts to do a good job as

      4. He has NOT “practiced what he has preached” to his players for the last 30 years (as he said in his press conference). No one can counsel players on their behavior, morals, and character, and yet have an incident like this in their background. He will be labeled a hypocrite, and rightfully so. He loses all credibility with the young men he has been charged with teaching. The University hired him to be an example to these young men, their families and the public in general. How can he go into a recruits home and tell a parent how he runs a program where integrity and values are the cornerstone of their approach? Opposing coaches will have a field day with the offhand remarks and snide comments to recruits and parents. He will not be able to overcome these obstacles.

      5. Finally, U of L President Dr. James Ramsey and AD Tom Jurich put a morality clause in his contract for a reason. They did no want to have to deal with a scandal like this bringing down their program. The fact that this is an issue that the NCAA has no jurisdiction over is of no importance. Pitino should resign so that he Athletic Board at U of L does not have to exercise that option. Pitino owes them better than that.”cbsposts
