Forget the primaries and the Pro Bowl, the weekend's biggest TV event was Saturday's Lousiville-Georgetown game and Rick Pitino's pimpin' white suit. Unfortunately, the Cardinals were outscored 31-23 in the first half, so the coach changed to a dark suit at halftime and the Cardinals rolled to a 59-51 victory. Pitino, however, claimed the suit change was due to a Diet Pepsi or Diet Coke spill and had nothing to do with his team's performance.
