Rick Pitino Denies Flipping Off UK Crowd After Cardinal Loss [VIDEO]
Fact: Louisville coach Rick Pitino's record against UK with John Calipari at the helm is 1-8. Louisville has not won at Rupp versus the Cats since 2008. Following Louisville two point loss to Kentucky Saturday, there's a new fan-shot video circulating supposedly showing the former UK coach flipping off the crowd just before he enters the locker room tunnel, which he denies. You be the judge.

So, let the debate begin! Is it the bird, a #1 sign, or...the Louisville "L"? Yes, the video quality isn't great, and I'm not sure even if you could break it down frame by frame, like Zapruder's Kennedy assassination film, you would see a middle finger. He does indeed make a gesture. This is the closest UK/Louisville game since Calipari's first and only loss to Pitino back in 2012.
