The UofL players’ lawsuit against the NCAA is comedy


Just when we thought the Louisville stripper scandal had given us all it could give, it reloads with a new lawsuit and new material to make us laugh.

Today we learned former UofL players Luke Hancock, Tim Henderson, Gorgui Dieng, Stephan Van Treese and Mike Marra are suing the NCAA over the vacating of games from the 2012 and 2013 seasons. And to show how serious they are about the lawsuit, they brought in the services of Morgan & Morgan (For the people!) to get the job done. That, in itself, is hilarious. I actually laughed out loud when I read it. Was ‘Better Call Saul’ not available?

Anyway, John Morgan from Morgan & Morgan (For the people!) came up from Florida for a press conference and he brought all of his other Morgans with him. They spent an hour talking about how the NCAA is the devil and its rules aren’t fair and it preys on college athletes — a lot of which is true. I believe Morgan, who is for the people, said something like the NCAA is “Goliath” and he and his plaintiffs are fighting back against its bullying. He even said, “We’re here to get Pitino’s championship back.” Good luck with that.

Hancock, who was the only one of the five former players to attend, said he can’t go two days without someone asking him about strippers. He also said he didn’t do anything wrong and the punishment doesn’t fit the crime, and that he would trade Louisville’s improper benefits for the $900 million the NCAA made on the tournament. I don’t think that’s an option, bud.

I could go on and on about how Morgan & Morgan (For the people!) preached about justice for the Cardinals who did not participate in the sex stuff, and how they’re trying to “get the players’ good names back.” But there are two main points of emphasis that we really need to address at this time:

(1) Morgan & Morgan (For the people!) isn’t ready for the fight it is fighting. At one point during the press conference, John Morgan, who is for the people, said the NCAA invented its one-and-done rule so it could profit off the best basketball players for at least one year. But if Morgan, who is for the people, had done his homework, he would know it’s an NBA rule and not the NCAA’s rule.

(2) This made me laugh:

Everyone got sprayed, he says. Interpret that however you’d like.

In the end, this won’t last long. It’s completely idiotic in the first place, so someone with some sense will tell Hancock and his pals to shut it down before they open a brand new can of worms that don’t need to be opened. Did the players not take into consideration that Pitino, Jurich, Louisville and their teammates could get called to testify under oath? Be smarter, guys.

As for Morgan & Morgan (For the people!), it has to know this is frivolous. The law firm clearly knows enough to afford all of those TV commercials, so it must know this is all one big waste of time.

It’s also worth noting John Morgan hails from Lexington and proudly reps Big Blue Nation. So, Go Cats.

Good luck to all parties, though. We’ll be watching. And laughing.

    Handlecock is an ass clown. He lies cause he laid with more whores than anyone. And could John Morgan make you hate lawyers anymore than you already do? What’s a douche. Loser pays and you’d get rid of most the useless lowlife lawyers.

      Rick’s: Your names for Mr. Luke H. are precisely what both DennyC and Luether lovingly refer to him as.

    It’s not the NCAA’s fault you’re embarrassed and constantly asked about strippers, dummies. Sue your teammates and coaches if that’s your complaint.

      Nicely put!

    Bob Florio’s fan’s suit and now the player’s Morgan and Morgan suit. Wow.

    Just goes to show that Morgan and Morgan will sue anybody for anything. They have absolutely zero credibility even though they continue to make it rich off their clients. Did your neighbor mow a foot onto your property, Call Morgan and Morgan. Did you stump your toe on sidewalks put in by the city, call Morgan and Morgan. Did your stock broker sell you a stock that didn’t go up in value, call Morgan and Morgan. These guys should be disbarred.

    I used Morgan and Morgan one time and after they agreed to take the case (I bought in to their BS ads) they did nothing except argue with me that I had no case. I was in so much pain I settled for 15 grand when I’ll have at least 50 maybe 100 grand in doctor bills. One operation was 30 grand. Don’t ever use those incompetent crooks. I’d bet the billionaire other side paid them off. Sorry John Morgan but that’s the facts

    Good comedy has a bit of truth mixed in, perfect.

  7. Swizzle

    Just a publicity stunt for Morgan and Morgan. But I’ll enjoy the show.

    Where are you DennyC and CodeRedNeck?

      We actually haven’t seen codered in quite some time. I miss his silly little antics.

    Mr. Morgan looks like he is so swelled up he is going to explode. Ricky P. has a better chance of being reinstated as coach than this thing making it through to trial.

    At first I thought this was bullshi* when I heard about it…
    Then I laughed for a few hours. Just shut up Hancock &
    let it go. The University admitted the team committed the
    recruiting violations using prostitutes.

    UL has the saltiest fan base on Earth. #TheyAre Pathetic

  11. eRUPPtion

    The University of Loserville needs to just tell all of their salty fans & Luke Hanjob the team was found to have used hookers/prostitutes. The banner was lowered due to NCAA violations of unethical recruiting by UL staff & let this 2013 banner go.

    This is the most pathetic fan base. The University admitted guilt & moved on. The fans are salty as fuc*. Someone at the Loserville needs to stand up & say enough. Our banner came down due to our basketball staff & members on the dumpster fire of a team. #Vacated 4ever lol

    The players that are saying they did nothing wrong should have left the school and went somewhere else to play but they didn’t so they are just as guilty for the wrong doings. You know they knew what was going on there and they chose to remain there even though they k,we of all the crap that was happening. Its like if your with some friends and they rob a store even if you didn’t take any of the money you was with them and are guilty of robbery.

    1. shelby

      Exactly! Hanflop and the other goobers lived in that dorm and saw what was happening, and stayed and played. If they truly cared about the program they would’ve at least told Rick … who already knew. Sell ur ill-gotten ring on ebay puke hanflop!
