The secondary effects of James Ramsey's failure to fire Rick Pitino

Well, wouldn't you know it. According to ESPN, despite the fact that U of L basketball players Jerry Smith and Terrence Jennings will face charges for roughing up off-duty police officers over the weekend, coach Rick Pitino says they won't so much as miss a game:
Any time you defy a police officer, it's serious. ... They will be punished and are being punished right now. But no, they will not miss game time.
James Ramsey didn't make Rick Pitino face the consequences of his behavior because winning is more important than everything else. Pitino isn't going to make his players face the consequences of their behavior because Ramsey didn't make him do it.

It all starts at the top.
