More trouble for Louisville on the way?

More trouble could be on the horizon for the University of Louisville.

Dan Dakich tweeted, “Huge news coming out of Louisville in the next 72 hours..remember last time I gave U of L news it was spot on.”

Dakich is certainly right about one thing in the tweet: He was one of the first to say Louisville’s appeal would get denied and the school would have to lose its 2013 NCAA championship. He cited “sources in the room,” and days later we learned Louisville’s appeal got denied and the 2013 championship was no more.

Will his prediction be accurate again? I wouldn’t bet against him.

And for what it’s worth, a friend of the KSR program told me early this morning, long before Dakich’s tweet, that Louisville has more coming out and it ain’t good.

With two people saying there is more to come, I’ll go ahead and get some popcorn popping for when it happens.

    It seems like this might be a good time to tend to our own knitting.

      72 hours seems like an eternity.

    2. philbo

      Exceptionally well put. I’m going to stay humble and quiet.

    3. secrick

      No lets enjoy their misery.

    4. Booby Petrino

      Meh I’m not worried about us so I’ll enjoy more misery heaped on them.

    5. 4everUKblue

      I agree Booby, I have no worries about our program’s integrity celebrating their misery is so therapeutic.

    6. ClutchCargo

      We hired Sandy Bell a long time ago to tend to our knitting. Lighten up and enjoy the fireworks!

    As much as we like to see them suffer, everyone is gone that was involved in any of this. I really don’t find it fair to Chris Mack.

    1. TheAssman

      Agreed, but don’t forget, their loud mouth, toothless, red neck fans aren’t going anywhere.

    2. ClutchCargo

      I actually have some friends who are reasonable UofL fans (aka unicorns), and I kind of hate it for them. And while I do have some sympathy for the ones left to deal with this mess, seeing their terrible fans taken down several notches makes it all worthwhile. Pass the popcorn, please!

      Mack knew that they weren’t out of the woods when he signed up, no real reason to feel bad for him.

    4. antiquefurnitureandmidgets

      He knew what he signed on for.

    5. J-Dub421

      There are rumors (I don’t know if they’re true or not) swirling around VJ King, and he is currently on their roster. Therefore, everyone involved is not gone from the program.

    6. J. Did

      MACK signed the dotted line. Worry not.

  3. Booby Petrino

    I guess firing Petrino wouldn’t be huge since it’s expected??

    1. Realme

      Dakich being a basketball guy, he’d probably specify if he was talking about football.

    2. Booby Petrino

      True

    3. ClutchCargo

      I’m thinking it’s more along the lines of the NCAA about to dig in for round 2 of the UofL investigation. They don’t have Papa John to step up, nor the ability to raid the foundation, for the kind of money it would take to buy out Petrino.

  4. east-ky-boy

    I love this. Couldn’t happen to a worse of a program

    1. lbaker0050

      Yes it could. It could happen to Duke!! lol

    2. 4everUKblue

      BINGO! ^^^

  5. Irish son

    Chris Mack is my former neighbor and a great guy. But he’s getting paid well to put up with it

  6. BBNBRIAN

    72 hours puts the announcement on Sunday. Ironic?

  7. nicky

    That news helps medicate the Duke loss some…??

  8. sincitycat

    I’m still pissed over the NCAA letting the Tarholes skate.

  9. catsarerunnin

    They still have a basketball team at UL?

  10. J. Did

    Dakich is an eye you fan. He is an ass hole.

    He hates KENTUCKY. And, 99.99% of eye you fans can not stand KENTUCKY. Just like the poor bastard.

    And- he hates UofL. His philosophy is if it is not about eye you, or Bobby long gone wife beating, chair throwing, Puerto Rican Poilce man slugging, Quoter of “enjoy the rape ladies”, he doesn’t care.

    That Dan Dakich. Piece of shit.

    1. bigbluebanana

      Faking gives UK more love than any other national program, even more than he gives IU. Not sure what you’re talking about. Has he called UK out before? Sure, but that’s his whole shtick. He does that to every team. Also, is “eye you” supposed to be some sort of insult? I don’t know what you’re going for here. Like, I get the “dook” insult and “loserville” ones, but “eye you” seems silly, and an awfully long leap to take to disrespect something.

  11. ukkatzfan

    Would be nice to see them shut the school down and rename the town like the US capitol to louisville DC. In this case DC would stand for dumpster city.

  12. UKani

    This is football related, Bobby Petrino about to be fired.

  13. Racerr11

    Mack may be a great guy but not a very smart guy, why in the world would you take that job knowing it’s nowhere close to being over with the NCAA. IU stinks.
