Rick Pitino’s reward for winning the national title? A tattoo

ATLANTA — Rick Pitino made a promise to his team.

He told them that if they win the National Championship, that he would get a tattoo. They won the National Championship. So is he getting a tattoo?

“Hell yes,” Pitino said.

” I told him he needs to get it on his lower back,” Peyton Siva said.

The question now becomes what. What will Rick Pitino’s tattoo be? I’m sure he has some ideas, but I just don’t think that he wants to leave it up to his team to decide.

“I don’t think he knew what he was getting himself into when he signed up for that one,” Luke Hancock said.

    Idiot. I don’t like Coach K and his act either but at least he and his players can win a championship in a classy way. The post game last night was players posing and mugging and acting like they’ve never won anything before. Then their leader steps up and talks about how his guys go get tattoos for anything and hell yes he’s getting one now too! Woo-Hoo!!! YEAH!
    Seriously- a low class celebration.

      Seriously, dude? Are you a Michigan fan or something?

      I’m pretty sure that this was the first National Championship for every single kid on that team…kid being the key word.

    Getting a tattoo? I don’t believe I would have told that!
