Thank you Mick Cronin!
I know some of you have issues with Mick. Hell! people have issues with me.

Thank goodness Mick has the integrity to keep UC out of this over-flowing toilet of crap!

Meh. I couldn't care less either way.

Sure, I don't mind having what's perceived as a clean program. But I also don't see what the real penalties are for doing what these programs are doing. Louisville has a pretty good recruiting class coming in. Arizona just got a 5 star player. So on and so on...

Part of me wishes UC had pockets and fans as deep as these other programs.

Just win. Nothing is going to happen to those programs. Everyone is doing it and they will all get a slap on the wrist. Maybe it's time UC gets off their high horse and does what everyone else has been doing.

I have a feeling the penalties for UC would be a little different from many of the 'too big to fail' type programs that are discussed there...

If I grew up a Louisville fan I would have lost tons of interest after the scandals.

It was a positive shout out to Mick Cronin. You know that had to be derailed immediately around here.

I think it's wrong to assume winning and running a clean program are mutually exclusive attributes.

Very proud that all indications are Mick has run an incredibly clean program.

This here. I'm not "nuttier than monkey sh*t" for being more concerned about our own annual Xavier and first weekend NCAAT losses than what the coaches at UL and Arizona are doing.

After re-reading my response above, I think my initial sentiment was lost a little. I'm definitely not a Mick-basher. The opposite, actually.

With that said, I don't personally care whether we run a "clean" program or not. There aren't actual consequences either way.

I'd be afraid what could happen to UC. The NCAA has come down hard on some of the non-blue blood programs. UMass is still nowhere to be seen and there are plenty of other cases where the NCAA came down hard on some programs, but often seem to be light on the big boys. That and they really don't care and will likely continue to cut corners and are big enough that players don't seem to care either.

The head coach as three jobs.

1. Win at a high level
2. Run a clean program
3. Graduate players.

I believe the current coaching staff is doing a good job at all three. We all want to win more games in the NCAA tournament but I don't want to do that at the expense of 2 and 3.

Leaving it at "just win" implies that you don't care how it's done.

We ALL want to beat zavier and get out of the first weekend of the NCAA. However, the line being drawn here is between the people who don't care if we're cheating scumbags like Louisville ...and the people with sense.

So, which are you again?

RE: Thank you Mick Cronin!
Of course Louisville is going to keep winning and cheating: they have Chris Mack as head coach!
The Cards this year (2019) have signed four players in the top 100 and three are from out of state. The weird thing is that Bowen is not even a turn around player like Deandre Ayton. Bowen was probably about a top 80 player, until an Under Armour team -- Maryland -- put in a bid! Addidas matched and increased their bid! Most of the colleges listed in the article are Addidas teams.
Here's something good to say about Chris Mack: right now is a good time to leave any of the Big East teams, because their contract with FS1 network is way over priced. Nobody wants to watch Big East basketball games. The AAC football/network contract is way, way undervalued and gets renegotiated starting this June. Our Bearcats will make a lot more money soon. With what network, nobody knows.

If I grew up a Louisville fan I would have lost tons of interest after the scandals.

No offense is meant with this, but let's be honest... If you "grew up a Louisville fan" you'd still be cheering them on and hoping they get back to winning at the top levels again.

Seriously... I hear people say stuff like this all the time, but the numbers don't support it. Louisville has more fans now than 10 years ago; I don't honestly think they've lost any real "fans" because of the scandals. Ditto with Kentucky, North Carolina, Miami, or any other school or team.

It just is what it is.

The fulfillment of bullet point 3 is the responsibility of the players, no one else.

I would think coaches and ADs with academic performance incentives in their contracts would probably disagree.
