Rick Pitino appeared on 84 WHAS Louisville to speak with Terry Meiners about winning the NCAA Basketball championship and the recent comments of Ohio State President Gordon Gee.
“He really doesn’t know how to tell jokes, he really doesn’t know how to get laughter because he has to denigrate others to get laughter,” Pitino said. “It’s a pompous attitude. … I have a major problem with him, not with Ohio State…. and he’s a pompous ass for making those statements.”
Gee has apologized for his statements but Pitino was not having any part of it. Only a call from Gee to Louisville president Dr. James Ramsey will do.
“we don’t accept it until he calls Dr. Ramsey,” Pitino said. “Until he calls us, we don’t accept his apology.”
