    Not to rain on the schadenfreude parade (although, wouldn’t that be fitting?)…

    How much money are we talking about Louisville having to give back for their tournament appearances? We all know the university is nearly broke after being robbed blind by the Cardinal Mafia for years. Unless the ULF ends up paying that bill, we the taxpayers of the Commonwealth of Kentucky will get to pay for their misdeeds.

    So they also fall out of the top ten of all time programs. It’s now been 31 years since they won a title and only 1 final for in the same 31 years period. I’d say they maybe the 12-15 best program of all time. Hell, Indian now again is more relevant in the last thirty years. 😂

    I hope I’m wrong but ” a vacation of basketball records in which student-athletes competed while ineligible from December 2010 and July 2014″ gives me pause.

    If the entire records during that time are vacated it could be interpreted as vacates wins AND losses we were 6-1 over Louisville during that time period. We should appeal THAT. Make them keep the losses no?

    We could actually lose ground on Kansas under that scenario.

    1. Sentient Third Eye

      Every U of L opponent would keep their wins and losses; only the Cards’ side would be vacated.

      A vacated game is expunged from a school’s record, although its opponent’s record is not changed.

      The NCAA never takes wins away from a program because the team they beat cheated. That just wouldn’t make any sense lol

    What an unexpected great day this has been…

    You’ve got 13 & 14 (Illinois & Arizona) reversed

  6. AllBlueAllDay

    Just imagine how far Carolina will fall if they have to vacate wins for the academic fraud. They could free fall down that list.

    1. Go_Wildcats_Go

      Yeah, if the NCAA ever does anything. Not holding my breath on that happening any time soon!
