Lady Karma is a bitch. And she makes house calls.

"Little Rickie" being hired by Iona is embarrassing for both sides.

What a comeuppance for "Rickie", and he drags Iona in - what was Iona thinking? Borrowed prestige over ethics?

Good hire for Iona... I'm sure they're ok with not having him coach a half season (should that happen). Once they are past this, they'll be just fine and probably better than they have ever been.

I hate this move by the NCAA. You’re punishing the current players and coaching staff for something Pitino did years ago. These punishments should be made instantaneously and not years after it occurred; NCAA slow as molasses, as usual.

Close......... Yes the NCAA is slow, no argument there.

Those who are part of this should be on notice and under suspension until a verdict and full punishment is handed down. RP should never had the change to get that Iona job until this was all settled - which in fairness should have been done 2 years ago. If you handled it in that way, you force the NCAA to do something....

The reason they don't is because due process takes time and "what if the accused is actually innocent". That should expedite the Due Diligence process IMO, but that never seems to work that way.

Not that the NCAA is fast with anything they do, but their hands were likely tied here due to the FBI involvement. If you want some insight, check out the HBO documentary on the McDonald's Monopoly scandal.

Or check out the HBO doc The Scheme which shows this entire situation with great detail.
