    Re: Kevin Ware cited for speeding in 2013 Dodge Challenger in Octobber

    Kentucky State Police cited Ware on Oct. 26 for driving his 2013 Dodge Challenger 95 mph in a construction zone.
    ...

    Pitino expects Ware to lose his license, but the guard won't face any team discipline at this time.

    "I don't get into parking tickets and things like that, as long as there is no drinking going on," Pitino told ESPN.com. "I chewed [him] out pretty good for being foolish. But as far as punishment, he will lose his license and he will be walking a lot. I hope he likes walking. Hey, it will be good for his leg."
    Wow...classy...Pitino doesn't get into piddly little stuff like parking tickets and similar things like going 95 in a construction zone...as long as you're not drinking AND going 95 in a construction zone.



    TBH...I wouldn't be surprised that no punishment comes out of it...but the forthright nature that he says...meh...NBD...is a little much. "We'll look into it and evaluate if any discipline is appropriate (and then never follow up)" would even be better.

    Rick Pitino is a classless individual.

    Was it an occupied construction zone though? How often do they have the zones set up and coned off and there is absolutely nobody around? 95 seems a little excessive anywhere, honestly, but still if nobody is around, construction zones **** me off more than anything.

    I get what you're saying, but it's not like a regular Louisville student or a person working out in the real world would face consequences for that at work or school, where as you might with a DUI. It comes off kind of *******-y the way he said it, but I get what he's saying.

    If Ejim or Kane got pulled over for going 95 mph would you expect a harsher punishment?

    At 95 MPH and going at least 15-20 MPH faster than the average flow of traffic, he would have no reliable way to tell if the zone was occupied, and occupied or not, the likely constriction of traffic is a hazard which is why it doesn't matter...no matter if they're an annoyance to you or not.

    I have ever no issue with letting the state punish for the speed. That's their job. But why is there not a question about how this kid can afford a brand new challenger? That's Pitino's job. If he doesn't do it, then I hope the NCAA would step in (although I know they won't).

    What a feel-good story! From broken leg to a new Dodge Challenger, the human spirit overcomes adversity once again.

    When I was in school, it was common to see Fizer or Tinsley driving around campus in their brand new SUVs.

    I have no problem with how Pitino is handling it, it's a traffic violation with no alcohol involved.

    And for those thinking something is fishy about him having a Dodge Challenger, maybe you don't remember the car Clyburn had last year.

    I think 2 players from last years ISU mens BB squad had new Camaros...Can't recall who at this time for the life of me but do remember one was bright as hell yellow and the other white. (Lucious and McGee maybe?!?)

    I think I could afford a lot nicer car not having college and food to pay for. Shoot I think many get living assistance. I could buy lots of **** if I didnt have to pay for food, college, and living.....

    I went to college thinking I wanted a career; turns out I just wanted paychecks.

    A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.
