That sounds like a 'yes'. If it was a 'no' he probably would have just said so.

We are not guilty of the sins of our father or brother, but our own actions have a far greater effect than just to ourselves or those directly involved. People seem to be blinded from the overreach of their bad decisions.
I also feel for the fans. Always meet great people when I go to Louisville for games.

To Louisville's credit, I checked their board and 90-95% of their fans are mad at the correct people (coaches/administrators), angry, not making excuses, vouching for integrity, and understanding of death penalty. Massive contrast from how Penn St's fans reacted.

$37,704,125: What Louisville would pay Rick Pitino from today on, not including bonuses, if he finished his contract thru 2026.

Wow-sers.

Seriously, though, this is a huge blow. It will be interesting to see if the NCAA actually drops the death penalty hammer for this. I mean this is what it was meant for, right? When the Feds are arresting coaches and showing network diagrams of money exchanging hands, you gotta do more than slap wrists. Then again, I am using logic and common sense, while the NCAA... let's just say they don't.

That's usually what they do.

But this is a case where they had just been hammered and continued to do even more than they got caught for with an effort to conceal (if Wedge's court documents are real).

UL president Gregory Postel just told us that there will be a press conference at 1 ET. Said Jurich and Pitino will not attend.

Sounds like a massive contrast from how they reacted to the last scandal. It was excuses last time.

Unfortunately, I suspect this is really, really widespread if the shoe companies are involved. Hiring prostitutes for recruits, not so much.

I don't see how they can't. Scandals like these, Baylor, and frankly PSU couldn't possibly have been compartmentalize. Like the old saying, "the fish rots from the head down". I can't believe that the powers that be all the way up the ladder had no idea of what was going on. Whether is be blatant disregard or willful ignorance, if people are found guilty, not only should the death penalty be issued, but those all the way up the food chain should face the music as well.

Would this not constitute a fireable offense? I have no idea what his contract stipulates, but I would think an FBI investigation and possible death penalty should negate the money owed over the next decade.
