Hoping for leniency, Rick Pitino sends prostitutes to FBI office

Just days after basketball coach Rick Pitino was placed on unpaid administrative leave for his involvement in a federal corruption investigation, it seems the former coach is up to his old tricks.

On Monday, Pitino sent three female prostitutes to the FBI offices in New York in hopes of charming the investigators on his case. The sex workers were wearing Louisville basketball jerseys, and little else aside from a sash that said “Free Rick”.

In a phone interview with the Daly Dose, Pitino said : “Fortunately, I’m innocent of all wrongdoing, I never sent any prostitutes. I don’t know any prostitutes. That simply isn’t the way that I do business. The FBI is free to do any sort of investigation on me that they want. They aren’t going to find anything. I have never been involved in any sort of corruption. I have never been involved with any strippers, or hookers. That just isn’t me.”

FBI documents cited two coaches on Louisville’s staff as working with Adidas executive Jim Gatto to funnel $100,000 to five-star recruit Brian Bowen. Last Thursday, ABC News confirmed that Pitino is the “Coach-2” mentioned in the FBI documents as the coach who spoke to Gatto multiple times and “requested” the transaction that allegedly sealed Bowen’s commitment.

Before hanging up, Pitino did have one question for us at the Daly Dose. “Do you know if Daisy went to the FBI offices? Can you check, and have her call me? I might be able to have conjugal visits.”

Daly Dose #148 Our no politics sports show

This week on the Dose, we are already tired of all of the political talk in sports. So, we sidestep the politics, and stick with what we actually know.

Major League Baseball is finally getting interesting, and we take a look at possible postseason matchups. We know that the Cleveland Indians, and the Los Angeles Dodgers will wrap up the top spots in each league, but which other teams can contend?

We respond to a few listener emails, including who won the NBA trade between the New York Knicks and the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Carmelo Anthony deal. Our answers just might surprise you!

We are now about one month into the college football season. Which teams are failing to live up to all of the preseason hype?

And in the NFL, the New York Giants, Seattle Seahawks, and Los Angeles Chargers might be off to a slow start, but we have some good news for them. Meanwhile, the Green Bay Packers, and Los Angeles Rams are off to very good starts, but could be facing trouble down the stretch. We look at the good news and bad news for a number of teams!

Finally, if your favorite NFL team is off to a slow start, we provide you with a ray of hope! Our Daly Dose Top 5 counts down the five times that NFL teams have started the season 0-3, yet still managed to make the playoffs!

Pitino, Louisville interested in Hugh Freeze as “director of prostitution”

Following his resignation from Ole Miss, football coach Hugh Freeze may not have to wait very long to find a new job.

Last week it was announced that Freeze had resigned from his position as head football coach at the University of Mississippi. It seems that school officials had found a number of phone calls to a number associated with an escort services. The encouraged “resignation” was mutual, and the university will not have to fulfill the remainder of Freeze’s contract.

The Rebels promoted assistant head coach Matt Luke the interim head coach effective immediately. Questions swirled following the departure of Freeze as many wondered if he would ever work in the collegiate ranks again. However, it seems that Freeze has already received some interest from another school, albeit an unlikely source.

The Daly Dose has learned that University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino has inquired as to whether Freeze might be interested in coming to the Bluegrass State.

In June, it was announced that several penalties would be brought against the Cardinals by the NCAA. Pitino is also due to serve a five-game suspension, because of sex-scandal allegations that a staff member provided basketball recruits with prostitutes and strippers. Louisville and Pitino plan to appeal the decision.

Pitino spoke to the Daly Dose and was very open about his interest in Freeze. “I realize that this is a sensitive subject, but I think it is safe to say that we have some similar interests as Coach Freeze, and we feel like he could definitely be an asset to our program.”

Does it concern Pitino that Freeze has no experience coaching basketball?

“Some things transcend sports.” Pitino answered. “I’m not looking to bring Hugh Freeze to the University of Louisville to coach a match-up press. This is a man that has a very special set of skills, and they are the type of skills that we can use here to improve our basketball program. We just want Coach Freeze to be Coach Freeze.”

Daly Dose #130 Memorial Day and the things we miss

This week on the Daly Dose we are looking forward to the holiday weekend! With Memorial Day being a time for remembrance we recall a few things that we miss in the world of sports. From the big hits in football, to the days before instant replay, to real sports news there are a number of things that have us feeling nostalgic.

Who is the best team in Major League Baseball right now? It isn’t the Chicago Cubs, that’s for sure.

We have some fake news coming out of the NFL that is being spun as a controversy.

Remember when the Big 12 Conference was going to take the world of college football by storm? That seems a like really long time ago.

A brief look at the NBA Lottery and incoming draft class, and those NBA playoffs have not been easy to watch.

Finally, with the LA Coliseum now being sponsored by United Airlines, we have the Top 5 slogans for the new LA United Coliseum!
