It still bothers Pitino that he left Lexington for the NBA. Do Louisville fans have a problem with that?
Pitino thinks UConn would be out of their mind if they leave the Big East for the ACC.
He told SNY.TV that it would be the "dumbest thing" he's ever heard.
"I almost went to Connecticut, it was Connecticut or UMass."
"With that being said, how can you want to leave? Why would you want to leave? My biggest mistake I made in my life is when I left Camelot (Kentucky)."
"They're leaving Camelot. It's the dumbest thing I've ever heard of."
I have always believed that if Pitino stayed in Lexington, he might have won 3 to 5 NCAA Championships.
If UConn goes to the ACC they would be the best conference when it comes to basketball. Since 2001, the ACC would have won 8 NCAA Championships with UConn, Duke, North Carolina, Maryland and Syracuse.
"To me, with Connecticut, I think it's just a ridiculous move," says Pitino.
