Did Pitino's UK teams play this dirty?

This year's Louisville team has really put the "dirty" back into "dirty Cards" (as illustrated in both the UK game and their game tonight against Villanova).  Although I have great memories of Pitino's UK days, I was a bit on the young side, and therefore a bit oblivious to the finer points of the style/strategies being played.  My question is, were Pitino's Kentucky teams known for playing as dirty as we have seen the Cardinals play this year, or is it just a by-product of the fact that they are so soft and desperate that they have no choice but to resort to these tactics in order to even keep games close?  I understand that most of the responses will be tinted by blue-colored glasses, but I'd still like to know the "older crowd's" take on it.
