    Interesting take. I am curious to know if/why you think Pitino deserves to be a Hall of Famer.

    Did you not think Pitino belonged in either?

    They have very similar resumes.

    Gentrification refers to the physical, social, economic and cultural
    phenomenon where by working class and / or inner-city neighbourhoods are
    converted into more affluent middle class communities by remodeling
    building, resulting in increased property values and in the displacement
    of the poor.
    (Absolute Astronomy, 2005)



    It was Ruth Glass (1964) who was first believed to have brought the
    issue of gentrification to the fore with definitions such as the one
    outlined below.



    One by one, many of the working class quarters of London have been invaded by the middle-classes - upper and lower.



    Shabby, modest mews and cottages - two rooms up and two down - have
    been taken over, when their leases have expired, and have become
    elegant, expensive
    residences Once this process of 'gentrification' starts in a
    district it goes on rapidly until all or most of the original
    working-class occupiers are
    displaced and the whole social character of the district is changed.
    (Hamnett, 2000)


    This displacement of the working class and the rehabilitation of
    poorer and derelict housing has led to the transformation of an area
    into a middle - class
    neighbourhood. (Smith, 1996)



    Gentrification has been described by Slater, (2002) as a
    fascinating, powerful and often frighteningly rapid process which plays
    an important role in
    fashioning the physical and social form of cities. Like the more
    widespread process of suburbanization, it is a process which has had a
    profound impact on
    the lives of urban residents in hundreds of cities.



    Scale of Gentrification in London



    According to Butler and Robson (2003a) there are four social 'fields
    of human activity these are: housing, employment, education and
    consumption. It will
    therefore be these factors which are discussed here in identifying
    the scale of gentrification in the London area.



    Ruth Glass' (1964) statement shows the effect that gentrification
    has had on the housing market: it is the process by which the original,
    poor and
    working-class residents, are displaced from neighbourhoods by rising
    costs and other forces directly related to an influx of new, wealthier
    residents. The
    Housing market is therefore an excellent indication of the change in
    an area, based on the contention that working class people can no
    longer to afford to
    live in these areas with rising rents and house prices. Atkinson
    (2000) has tried to measure the gentrification of an area through
    measuring this
    displacement of certain types of people.



    London has experienced massive de-industrialisation, but has also
    seen rapid expansion of business and financial services such as banking,
    legal services
    and management consultancies as well as the continued growth of a
    number of creative industries such as advertising, film and videos
    creation, music,
    fashion and design. (Hamnett,1999)



    Cities such as London have been characterised by the transformation
    of their industrial occupational, income and residential structure. The
    rise of cities
    such as this with their cultural interests and housing market
    demands has, in large part, been responsible for the growth of
    gentrification in
    post-industrial inner cities.



    Also of importance in discussing the scale of gentrification is the
    on going social processes through which formerly deprived or undesirable
    areas are
    transformed and made congenial to the requirements of middle - class
    life. (Butler and Robson,2001) such as employment, education and
    capital.



    Schools and education are major issues in gentrification. Butler and Robson (2003b) highlight this problem.



    Inner London is different from the rest of the country in that it is
    only relatively recently that it has acquired middle -class households
    with children
    being left with what is widely seen as an education system which is
    seen as amongst the worst performing, particularly at secondary level,
    in the United
    Kingdom.



    Middle - class households have the assets to be able to find non -
    local schools or use the private education system. Working - class
    families do not have
    these same resources available and therefore these children are not
    being given the same opportunities as their middle - class peers to
    obtain a higher
    standard of education, and therefore the education infrastructures
    of the areas are being transformed.



    Employment patterns have also undergone notable changes. In Inner
    London, a decline has taken place amongst the skilled, manual and
    routine, non-manual
    groups whilst the growth in recent years, has occurred amongst the
    professional middle class. (Butler and Robson,2003b)



    However it has been noted by Sassen (1991) who suggested that
    changes in the labour market of 'global cities' results in social
    polarisation.S ocial
    polarisation is the various ways in which many areas are becoming
    more socially distinct over time. In this case we are seeing areas with
    an originally
    small middle - class population, becoming 'richer' as the middle -
    class population increases and the working - class population decreases.



    Hamnett, (1999) states many residents work in business or creative
    industries in the central city or its environs, and have long or
    irregular hours and
    therefore want to live close to work and the cultural and
    entertainment facilities offered by the central city. He goes on to note
    that traditional central
    areas are expensive and in short supply. Consequently, the new
    middle class have sought out new living opportunities in the inner city.

    I like cal but I don't think he should go first ballot. And for those who think he has a similar resume as Pitino is just crazy. Only thing he has over Pitino is head to head wins. Oh, and you dont forget about two erased final fours over night.

    Pitino's time at Hawaii was marred by a 1977NCAA report on sanctions against the program. According to the report, Pitino was implicated in 8 of the 64 infractions that led the University to be placed on probation. The violations involving Pitino included providing round-trip air fare for a player between New York and Honolulu, arranging for student-athletes to receive used cars for season tickets, and handing out coupons to players for free food at McDonald's. He was also cited, along with the head coach, Bruce O'Neil, for providing misinformation to the NCAA andUniversity of Hawaii officials. Also in 1977, the NCAA infractions committee recommended that Pitino and O'Neil be disassociated from Hawaii athletics. In 1989, Pitino would dismiss the report, saying "I didn't make any mistakes, I don't care what anybody says."


    Do they overlook 8 infractions and lying to the NCAA?

    Well, why don't you take a flying leap and simply stick it!

    Gosh if that is not baiting mods, I don't know what baiting is.

    As a UK fan I actually feel sorry for the Cards fans. Not a day goes by that their coach doesn't wish with all his heart
    he was still coaching at the school they hate the most.

    Sad little fan base; 2nd in their city, 2nd in their state, 2nd in their coach's heart.
