Day of Reckoning for Louisville
Something is going down at Louisville right now...

Tom Jurich just walked into U of L administration building alone. Lot of speculation that today could be it for he and Rick Pitino.

Five minutes after entering Grawemeyer Hall, Tom Jurich has exited without comment. Whatever transpired inside, it was quick.

Sad day for UL...I think if anyone here follows a big program or a smaller one that suddenly got real good...you have to be sitting on pins and needles.

Quote:Louisville head basketball coach Rick Pitino has told members of his coaching staff that he expects to lose his job over allegations that the Cardinals basketball program is involved in a federal investigation into fraud and corruption in college basketball recruiting.

A source told ESPN's Michael Eaves that Pitino "knows it's coming" after a staff meeting of the basketball coaches Wednesday morning in Louisville.

Thank goodness our basketball program has been a bowl of shiitake mushrooms for a while 03-lol

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.

I hate to see this. Should people be justly punished for their actions or inactions? Yes. However, I hate that these scandals (e.g. Louisville, Baylor, Penn St, SMU) affect so much more than those directly involved. It wasn't the kicker's fault that Sandusky did what he did. It wasn't the women's tennis team's fault that SMU football did what it did.

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.

That's why the NCAA should grant immediately transfer eligibility to all affected student-athletes under affected programs. That way it doesn't affect the kids - it only affects the institution and the individuals responsible.

The NCAA already has a rule that athletes whose teams are on NCAA probation for the remainder of their eligibility can transfer out and be immediately eligible at another NCAA school. A lot of football players used that rule to transfer away from Penn State when they were put on probation, and it's been used by athletes at other schools as well.
