Self-imposed bans are awful. The players at the time get penalized that had nothing to do with the violations. What they should do is not accept self-imposed bans for the current year, and accept them for the following year while allowing any player who wishes to transfer to do so without restriction.

The way the recent seniors at Louisville, Syracuse, etc. have been treated in regards to the self-imposed ban halfway-or-more through the season is disgraceful.

The players knew they were signing on a scumbag U. You sleep with dogs you may get fleas.

Toss their University Foundation into the mix as well. Some disturbing revelations have emerged from there of late.

RE: When Little Ricky is let Go
is anyone amazed that Chane Behanan was supposedly one of the 3 that were major parts of this story? We knew from day 0.1 that something was fishy with how he switched so quickly.

RE: When Little Ricky is let Go
Was talking to a UofL alum this morning at the gym. Boy is he pissed. Wants Ricky fired and some other heads to roll.

That being said he rubbed it in that they are in a power conference making > than $30M a year and playing at Duke, UNC, etc. while we are stuck playing Tulane and East Carolina for pennies. He figures they'll get Billy D. or Gregg Marshall after RP leaves. They got the money, the exposure and play in the best conference in the country. Can't say I disagree with him.

RE: When Little Ricky is let Go
Louisville, a slightly smaller metro than Cincy, has no major league sports and no other high profile D1 program in town. They've accomplished a lot with winning, building great facilities and cultivating fans. Imagine a larger city (Cincinnati) without the major league competition and how corporate dollars and fan support would flow into Nippert and Fifth Third? In that scenario, Cincy would surely be in a P5.

I believe that still happens (in zero to five years) but my hope is UC continues to operate the athletic program with the integrity that has made all of us proud this past decade plus. CLF is going to win here and Mick, if not winning championships, will still keep the basketball program high profile, winning lots of games with good student athletes. We should all be Proudly Cincinnati. Louisville has a long, arduous journey to clean up a damaged institutional reputation.

My guess is they'll want to distance themselves from RP. My UofL buddy believes the same (when he brought up Billy D. I reminded him he is a Pitino protégé). On top of all that, Louisville will likely want to go with someone who has a better track record and will make a bigger splash.

That's a real dick move. I mean he's right at the end of the day re their payoff but still. College sports are a joke really.

Oh no! UC fans piling on right now - funny. In a few years, UC football will be playing MAC-type games on Tuesday night while UofL plays for National Championships.

They did whatever was necessary to make it happen. UC was too high-brow, or too stupid, to get it done. At least we can rest easy that our program is squeaky clean just like Mount Union or Wilmington. Now there is good news when it comes to basketball - we can play for that coveted 6th seed.

That's pretty much the gist of our discussion. He even made the comment that he does not want UofL to just be happy to make the tournament every year.

I should note for the record he likes UC and wishes we were in the ACC. He is paying tuition to our school for his two children.
