This is going to hurt a little more than it would have in years past, but these numbers still detail a ridiculous history of dominance.

Here's the full rundown of Pitino's relationship with the Sweet 16:

All-Time Sweet 16 Results

6. Providence 103, 2. Alabama 82 (1987)
2. Kentucky 87, 3. Massachusetts 77 (1992)
1. Kentucky 103, 5. Wake Forest 69 (1993)
1. Kentucky 97, 5. Arizona State 73 (1995)
1. Kentucky 101, 4. Utah 70 (1996)
1. Kentucky 83, 4. St. Joseph's 68 (1997)
4. Louisville 93, 1. Washington 79 (2005)
3. Louisville 79, 2. Tennessee 60 (2008)
1. Louisville 103, 12. Arizona 64 (2009)
4. Louisville 57, 1. Michigan State 44 (2012)
1. Louisville 77, 12. Oregon 69 (2013)
8. Kentucky 74, 4. Louisville 69 (2014)

That's 10 double digit wins in 12 appearances, five games won by 21 points or more, and two by more than 30.

Average Margin of Victory: 18.6 ppg

Pitino has also been pretty stellar in recent years when it comes to same-season revenge games. You may have heard earlier this season that the Cards have 22 consecutive same season revenge games at the Yum Center, but Pitino has been pretty good wherever he's looked to exact revenge.

 

(Please note that this is a gambling chart, so the highlights aren't for wins and losses)

Here's hoping Louisville's head coach is able to add to these stellar resumes in a few hours.
