Pitino is tough. I agree with all above. Louisville just dismantled Washington. They shoved it right up Romar's ass.

Come on, go easy on my man Romar...don't forget, this poor bastard had to sit next to Harrick for a few years. He still has a lot of bad habits to break. At least he does nothing illegal and knows how to properly fill out an expense report.

apparently so...

The FBI is investigating the estranged wife of Louisville's equipment manager regarding extortion allegations leveled by coach Rick Pitino, her attorney said Sunday.

Attorney Thomas Clay said he spoke with the FBI about the matter last week but had no further comment. He represents Karen Sypher, the wife of longtime equipment manager Tim Sypher.

Clay acknowleged Karen Sypher was contacted by the FBI after Pitino filed a complaint last month that he was being targeted for extortion.

"I can't be more specific than they talked to her," Clay said. "Yes, there could be a criminal prosecution."

FBI spokesman David Beyer confirmed there was an ongoing investigation into Pitino's complaint and that no other law enforcement agencies were involved. Beyer did not name the target of the investigation.

Pitino said in a statement Saturday night that he planned to keep the matter private but was forced into action when the individual -- whom he did not name -- decided to go to the media. The statement did not detail the nature of the threats.

"I recently learned that the individual behind this extortion attempt has already gone to the media with false, defamatory and outrageous allegations in an attempt to pressure me to cave in to this scheme," Pitino said.

WDRB-TV in Louisville said on its Saturday night telecast that it has conducted an interview with Karen Sypher but chose not to put it on the air.

News director Barry Fulmer said Sunday he's not sure when -- or even if -- the tape will be shown.

"Officially, I don't feel comfortable airing something that I can't prove yet," Fulmer said. "I didn't want us to be irresponsible and start throwing out stories and accusations that I couldn't confirm. That's really all there is to it."

The Syphers are in the process of getting a divorce, Clay said.

"I am devastated by the bizarre allegations that my estranged wife is making against Coach Pitino and myself," Tim Sypher said in a statement. "I intend to defend the allegations vigorously."

Pitino's attorney Steve Pence did not immediately return a phone message Sunday from The Associated Press.

Tim Sypher has worked with Pitino for the past 12 years. He served as Pitino's personal assistant with the Boston Celtics from 1997-2001, then followed Pitino to Louisville in 2001 to become the team's equipment manager.

Tim Sypher previously worked as an investigator for the state of Massachusetts for a decade. He and Karen Sypher have a daughter. Karen Sypher also has four sons.

Pitino just finished his eighth season in Louisville. The Cardinals won both the Big East regular season and conference tournament championships before falling to Michigan State in the NCAA tournament regional finals.

The Unofficial Rick Pitino Extortion Rumors List | Bleacher Report

The last 24-plus hours have produced some rational, irrational, and borderline insane rumors about Rick Pitino’s extortion charges against Karen Sypher, the wife of Louisville equipment manager Tim Sypher.

After reading this list, you'll be fully caught up on the rumor mill regarding the situation, as well as the best gossip for Monday's water cooler discussions.

Among the best:

* Sypher and Pitino have a relationship, to some extent, and Sypher attempted to start getting some money out of it. That's when Pitino wanted out, fearing the partnership would be discovered.
* Rebutted by a text message sent to ESPN, Richard Pitino, his son, left the Louisville sideline to join Billy Donovan at Florida to keep his fresh face out of the extortion case.
* A lie detector test administered in an interview with Louisville FOX affiliate WDRB found Sypher's accusations to be inconclusive.
* Sypher doesn't plan to file counter charges against Pitino, whether it's because she has nothing or is innocent.
* This ordeal had nothing to do with the law until Sypher attempted to extort money from Pitino. Yes, adultery is bad, but not illegal. And that's assuming Pitino did anything harmful to his marriage.

And the worst (or best, depending on how you look at it):

* Sypher was forced to abort a child conceived with Pitino nearly five years ago, causing irreversible damage to Sypher that still haunts her to this day.
* Pitino is using his power and money to sway an FBI investigation in his favor, as if the FBI plays favorites.
* Tim Sypher sided with Pitino over his wife to save his job with the team. Although the two are divorcing, Tim isn't angry with Pitino over potential cheating between his wife and the Louisville coach.
* Two of Sypher's sons were put through high school by another one of her partners in the past, meaning this wouldn't be the first time she attempted extort money.
* The Pitino scandal is all a scheme by newly inducted Kentucky coach John Calipari, who has had his magical PR working in only a few weeks at Kentucky (the UK link had to come up at some point since they decided to report it first).
* By messing with Pitino, Sypher's finally been caught after years of similar escapades (I did say insane, right?).

As it is with most scandals such as this, the final facts aren't usually as bad as expected. For those involved with the University of Louisville basketball program, the hope is that this is a personal issue only. For Pitino and Sypher, some damage has already been done.

Look back to this list for any non-official updates to the rumor mill.

Federal prosecutors have charged a Kentucky man with helping an alleged extortion attempt against University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino.

Lester Goetzinger is charged with aiding and abetting 49-year-old Karen Cunagin Sypher in her alleged attempt to extort millions from Pitino.

Court papers filed late Wednesday show prosecutors have reached a deal with Goetzinger that requires him to go through a pretrial diversion program. The deal means charges against Goetzinger will be dismissed after a year if he does not break the law.

Prosecutors claim Sypher tried to extort millions to pay for her house and college tuition for her children. She has pleaded not guilty.

Federal prosecutors wouldn't comment on the deal Thursday morning and Goetzinger's attorney did not immediately return a telephone message.

Louisville and coach Rick Pitino agreed in principle to a four-year contract extension on Wednesday that will keep him on the sideline through the 2016-17 season.

Pitino hopes the extension ends what he called unfounded speculation that he's considering leaving the Cardinals in pursuit of another job.

"My moving days have long been over," Pitino said. "I've been here nine years. It feels like nine days. Now I'm going to be able to end this career at the place I want to end it at."

Financial details have yet to be worked out, and the deal needs to be approved by the university's athletic association.

Pitino's current contract runs through 2013 and pays him around $2.5 million annually. Athletic director Tom Jurich said his goal is to make Pitino's new salary competitive with the top coaches in the country.

"I think as we move forward, it's very important for us to be stable," Jurich said. "We have a great coach at the top, we have an icon at the top and I don't think there's five coaches that are in the same discussion as coach Pitino so it's important we keep him."

Pitino is 220-86 at Louisville and 572-210 in 24 seasons at the collegiate level. He's the only men's coach to lead three different programs to the Final Four and has helped the Cardinals put together the second-best record in the Big East since joining the 16-team league in 2005-06.

The contract is also a vote of confidence in Pitino, whose personal life made headlines last summer when he apologized to an "indiscretion" at a local restaurant in 2003 with a woman later accused of trying to extort him for millions.

"I think it's much more than a show of public support," Jurich said. "This is a support that our athletic department believes in him, our university believes in him and he is the man that we want to lead us."

The new deal also moves up a $3.6 million loyalty bonus Pitino was scheduled to receive on July 1, shortly after Karen Cunagin Sypher's federal trial for extortion threats she made against Pitino is expected to go to court. He'll now receive the bonus on Friday.

Pitino, 57, said he's not as concerned about the money as he is squelching rumors that he is planning to leave.

He has been linked to NBA jobs in Sacramento and New Jersey in the past year -- reports that he has explicitly denied -- and hopes the new deal will send a message to recruits that he's not going anywhere.

"I thought when I first came here I'd stay 6-8 years and probably have one more move left in me," he said. "Then I realized that there's no other place that I would want to be. ... You can always find challenges where you are. You don't have to go elsewhere."

There were plenty of challenges to go around last season, when the Cardinals went 20-13 and lost in the opening round of the NCAA tournament a year after winning both the Big East regular season and conference titles while coming within a game of the Final Four.

Pitino, however, said he's confident the Cardinals are close to getting back to the top of the conference. He says he's spent more time on the road recruiting this year than ever before, and has his eyes set on a 2011 recruiting class that he expects to be among his best ever.

He'll also have a new toy to show off when recruits come to town. The men's and women's basketball programs will move into a new $238 million, 22,000-seat arena in the fall, a building officials say wouldn't have been possible without Pitino's influence.

"There would not be an arena without Rick Pitino," Jurich said.

Though Pitino's raise will come from the athletic department, which is self-sustaining, university president James Ramsey said he understands the frustration of faculty members who have gone two years without a bump in pay. He said he's working toward finding a way to increase faculty salary, but feels Pitino is also worth the investment.

"Our basketball program is important in terms of paying bills for athletics," Ramsey said. "It's important to us from a government relations perspective, from a donor-relations perspective and from an alumni-relations perspective. In the overall scheme of things our basketball program is important to our overall future success."

The new contract will expire when Pitino is 64, though he allowed it might not be his final contract at the school. He has no plans to sign one somewhere else.

"The only time I'm going to leave is to retire," he said.

The beer’s label features an image of Karen Sypher, the woman recently found guilty of extortion against Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino.

The label also reads, “A bitter brew available only at your local Italian eatery. 0% Dignity by Volume.”
