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

@YahooForde

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.

Just now asked was Tom Jurich fired? #UofL Pres Postel: We'll report in a little while. @WHAS11

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.

RE: Day of Reckoning for Louisville
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.

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

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.

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).

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.

Wow-sers.

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.
