07:27 AM ET 09.09 | Waiting to join the ACC hasn't stopped Rick Pitino from dreaming of a headline-grabbing matchup. He already has his sights set on his desired opponent in the annual Big Ten/ACC Challenge: Minnesota, coached by his son Richard. "I'm hoping, that the Big Ten/ACC Challenge ... I'm hoping that we get matched up them because it terms of a home and home, I'm not playing him," Pitino told reporters on Saturday at the Hall of Fame's press conference. ... This past season, Rick's Cards blew out Richard's Florida International Golden Panthers 79-55 on Dec. 19. Now that the younger Pitino is in a power conference, Rick mentioned that a game between the Cardinals and Golden Gophers would put the family rivalry on a more level playing field. "I think it would be fun," the new Hall of Fame member said.

QUOTE(#3):

Seriously need to rethink that headline

Would flow so much better if it said "Calipari wants another crack"
