124 | Rick Pitino vs Tom Izzo, "Elite 8" 2015


First I want to note that this year's college championship is on April 6, the 96th day of the year.  It was the year '96 that Pitino won the National Championship while coaching Kentucky, who is the favorite to win this year.
  • Rick = 9+9+3+2 = 23
  • Pitino = 7+9+2+9+5+6 = 38
  • Rick Pitino = 61
  • Rick = 18+9+3+11 = 41
  • Pitino = 16+9+20+9+14+15 = 83
  • Rick Pitino = 124
Interestingly enough, Rick Pitino is matched against Michigan State and Head Coach Tom Izzo today.  Checkout the name Gematria on Tom Izzo...
  • Tom = 2+6+4 = 12
  • Izzo = 9+8+8+6 = 31
  • Tom Izzo = 43 (March = 43)
  • Tom = 20+15+13 = 48
  • Izzo = 9+26+26+15 = 76
  • Tom Izzo = 124
This is the 76th year of the college tournament, which began in '39.  Watch for the number '76' in today's game.

Rick Pitino has the age and experience advantage, born September 18, 1952.
  • 9/18/52 = 9+18+52 = 79
  • 9/18/1952 = 9+1+8+1+9+5+2 = 35
