Sportingnews.com: MARK EMMERT CONCERNED PUBLIC IS LOSING CONFIDENCE IN NCAA
So if I understand this correctly, the NCAA is saying "everyone on the planet but us saw that we messed this up, but we hear you".  So now I suppose they will get tough and bring the hammer down on offenders going forward.  It sure is fortunate for UNC-CH that they slipped though that narrow 7-year wide window when there were no consequences to cheating.

As the NCAA continues to get hammered for its recent rulings, seems more and more that the "C" in their acronym stands for "clueless"!

NBCSports.com: Braxton Beverly, Evan Battey and Jalen Hayes are proof NCAA has no business determining academic ability

Yahoo.com: NCAA again shows lack of common sense by denying NC State freshman's appeal

"Clueless". I can think of another "c" word that might fit and it ain't "cat" though it is synonymous with "pussy".

ESPN.com: Ex-Louisville coach Rick Pitino accused of being aware of payment scheme, according to indictment

I guess that lawsuit he filed is going to disappear.  What a moron.

clt says Roy knew

Roy is too busy to know anything related to his basketball team such as classes, money, rental cars, cell phone, relationships with felons, etc....

CBSSports.com: Big-name coaches open up about college basketball's problems and how to fix them

NABC.com: NABC Forms Ad Hoc Committee on Menís College Basketball


Got to love the idea of interviewing Roy Williams about coaches cheating and how to fix it.

I've been investigated seven times. Seven committees came out and said, 'Roy didn't know what was going on...

I put this here, but I think many who graduated would take a scandal if we did what Louisville did over the last 20 years.  :))  I know scandals are not good, but the Louisville AD did a remarkable job.  Read about the basketball arena deal he made with the city.  While bad for the city residents it was great for the University athletics.  This was a business man running athletics/

http://www.espn.com/espn/otl/story/_/id/21710106/louisville-athletic-director-tom-jurich-leveraged-big-deals-build-university-sports-powerhouse-only-watch-burn-amid-charges-excess

Some Highlights on growth:
"Over the past 20 years, Jurich had built a sports empire on top of a midlevel commuter school near the Ohio River, transforming the campus and infusing a genteel Southern city that lacked a professional team with the excitement of big-time sports. Jurich was so successful generating money that "I wished I could turn them upside down and shake out their pocket change for the academic side," says Thomas B. Byers, a professor emeritus in the English department."

"Louisville's athletics budget then was $16.5 million. Jurich embarked on an ambitious growth strategy that would solve Louisville's Title IX problems and build up nonrevenue sports such as swimming and soccer while ensuring that the basketball and football teams were successful enough to support the enterprise."

On exposure due to Athletics:
""I can give $5 million to stem cell research and it's gonna help stem cell research," says Dr. Mark Lynn, an optometry-chain owner whose name adorns the soccer complex. "I give $5 million to a soccer stadium and it's gonna help everything." Lynn says sports bring the school visibility."

State Representative on AD:
""The University of Louisville is a state facility ... and it is not their kingdom. They are not the kings, and the princes, and the nobility in the kingdom. They're temporary stewards of these programs."

Wonder if our knucklehead chancellor even knows Donovan Mitchell (UL best player in a decade) is the son of my former UNCC teammate Donovan Mitchell, 49er 3b in early 90s, first team all-metro and current Mets employee. 

Did we recruit him? Nah.  Coulda been another Curry.  Oh and he's ok I'm the NBA too.  17ppg
