Pitino Extortion Update

While whatever is at the heart of the Rick Pitino extortion situation is still unclear, this article has some new stuff, including the fact that the woman who is accused of extortion, Karen Sypher, is estranged from her husband and he has commented as well:

"I am devastated by the bizarre allegations that my estranged wife is making against both Coach Pitino and myself. ... I intend to defend the allegations vigorously and will have no additional comment at this time. "

The mind boggles, but speculation is unfair. Still, it's hard not to wonder how both an estranged husband and Rick Pitino could be included together in an extortion attempt.
