Jon Rothstein asked Pitino on his podcast about the basketball program's NCAA problem. "Do I expect any more? I don't make those decisions, but we followed what Chuck Smrt told us the violations would incur. We feel very confident that that'll be it."  Searching for sympathy, Pitino added, "It was pretty severe for us." UofL said on Thursday that Smrt was still investigating the Louisville hooker scandal, the day after KSR reported the NCAA's investigation was "essentially complete" and the Notice of Allegations should be released by the end of this week.     Pitino will also be talking with Terry Meiners later today.  Is Rick simply talking about the upcoming season, or trying to get ahead of the NCAA's release of the Notice of Allegations?
