The Rick Pitino-Karen Sypher case opened Monday in Louisville and the elements of a circus are clearly in place. Sypher stands accused of trading sex for favors with Lester Goetzinger, who allegedly called Pitino to begin the extortion plan, and also of offering sexual favors to her divorce attorney, Dana Kolter.

Louisville coach Rick Pitino, of course, was accused of raping Sypher after the two -- unquestionably -- had sex after hours in a restaurant.
