It didn't take long for the "Escort/Stripper-Gate" (or whatever we're calling this thing) wheels to start spinning again this Monday morning.
First, there was Terrence Williams talking to TMZ. It went exactly how you imagined Terrence Williams talking to TMZ would go.
"I am not a part of that. To Louisville I am f**king Elvis Presley. So why would I pay anybody for anything?"
"Motherf**kers pay me for pictures and handshakes. And that's not being cocky, 'cause I don't play around with my blessing. I'm very honored to be in that position in Louisville. Louisville is the greatest city, the fans are great, Rick Pitino is great."
He's not finished ... Williams says Katina Powell -- the woman behind the book -- is nothing more than a thirsty, money hungry liar looking for a pay day.
"Nobody's gonna pay attention to a b*tch searching for money. So you make up stuff, and you put out all these allegations. If my name's on anything, provide proof."
"At the end of the day when the smoke clears, she's going to go to jail. You need to be put under the f**king jail. You need to be put in a black f**king hole in Langley."
Terrence says he's got a team of lawyers evaluating his legal options -- and says he's also furious that his former coach Rick Pitino and his close friend Andre McGee are being dragged through the mud.
"Andre's the most kind hearted person ever. And Rick Pitino, he's Rick Pitino! A Hall of Famer, a legend ... he don't need to buy any kid p*ssy to get him to commit to the University of Louisville. It's a privilege to play there."
I spent a solid chunk of my Saturday thinking that the only thing this story was missing was Terrence Williams comparing himself to Elvis.
I'm glad we got that out of the way quickly.
Also speaking out today was 2013 Final Four MOP Luke Hancock, who joined "The Deener Show" this morning on 93.9 The Ville and ESPN 680.
Hancock said he was shocked when he first heard of the allegations and would bet his life that Rick Pitino knew nothing, if anything did in fact go down. He added: "I lived in Minardi Hall for three years ... I never saw anything, heard anything, wasn't involved in anything."
Shaping up to be another lovely week.
