Pitino case centers around wife of UofL employee

The person doing the alleged extorting in the Rick Pitino case is Karen Sypher, multiple sources have confirmed.

She is the wife of Louisville equipment manager Tim Sypher.

They have five children.

Tim has worked for Pitino at Louisville for seven years, according to an official bio. He was also a personal assistant to Pitino for more than three years with the Boston Celtics, meaning he's worked with Pitino in some form for a decade. By pure coincidence, Daniel Acker of Bloomberg News took a picture of a Karen Sypher sources have said is the Karen Sypher last year at The Kentucky Derby.

(She really does look like she's up to something, doesn't she?)

Records show Tim and Karen Sypher are in the process of getting a divorce.

Tim Sypher issued a statement Sunday morning.

"I am devastated by the bizarre allegations that my estranged wife is making against both Coach Pitino and myself," he said. "At this point, my primary concern is for my young daughter and four stepsons, both to the impact of their mother's actions on them, as well as the impact on Coach's family and the University. I love my children, and want to protect them. At the same time, I intend to defend the allegations vigorously and will have no additional comment at this time."

Sounds like a wonderful woman.  Someone else has already mentioned this, but she really does look like Stifler's mother.  Sounds like she has the sex drive of Stifler's mother in addition to looking like her.

I'm guessing that Mrs. Black Widow heard a little something and figured she would make a little easy cash on the inside knowledge.  I"m no fan of Pitino, but good for him calling the FBI in. 

Divorces can get pretty ugly.  Looks like this woman is going to pay a price for taking the nastiness to a new level.  Being in the cross-hairs of the FBI is not the place to be.

They have five children (not really)

 Gary, you might want to dig a little deeper.  Apparently, word around town (Louisville here) is that this lady is a black widow.  At least several of her children are by different men (doctors and local businessmen) that she latches onto and discards.  She didn't meet the equipment manager until a few years ago and got married only after becoming pregnant with his daughter, which is apparently the only child they have together.

Women - "Can't live with 'em, can't kill 'em" = Robin Williams (comedian)

 

Hang in there coach - people can be - well, for lack of a better word ******'s (I'll leave that for the readers interpretation.  Extortion is nothing new and hell on your reputation because as we all know (sic Fox News), Perception is (just) as good as the truth; Proving a positive out of a negative accusation is costly.

Prosecute whomever to the fullest extent of the law.

That woman has more mileage on her than a twin steel-belted radial tire on a New York taxicab.

Say what?

But what the hell are the particulars of the case? So far, there doesn't seem to be much of a story here.
