Last year, when Louisville announced a "white-out" for their game with Georgetown, coach Rick Pitino brought out a splendid white suit for the event. Of course with the Cardinals trailing in the game, Pitino changed into a dark suit for the second half. He later claimed that he needed to change because he spilled soda on the suit in the first half. The Cards rolled and Pitino vowed that he would not wear a white suit unless it was for the Kentucky Derby.

A year and another "white-out" later, Pitino brought back the white suit for the Marquette game for all to enjoy.
