Louisville has 45 days to determine which players were ineligible and which games those players played in, before we know the fate of the 2012 Final Four and 2013 championship banners.
The NCAA decided 15 recruits and three enrolled UofL athletes were in violation of the rules, so it’ll likely come down to the identity of those three student-athletes:
The operations director arranged adult entertainment and/or sex acts for 15 prospects, three enrolled student-athletes, a friend visiting with one of the prospects and two nonscholastic coaches.
“Without dispute, NCAA rules do not allow institutional staff members to arrange for stripteases and sex acts for prospects, enrolled student-athletes and/or those who accompany them to campus,” said the panel in its decision.
On today’s KSR show, the guys called Katina Powell to confirm some of the names of the guilty parties with her. Chane Behanan and Montrezl Harrell were among those she named as 100 percent involved, and those two played a combined 40 minutes in Louisville’s title game against Michigan.
That’s not good news for the banner.
