How bad is it for Louisville?
So bad, that even Pat Forde is calling for the death penalty. And for Pat Forde to turn on Rick Pitino and UofL, you know things have gotten way out of hand.
From Forde’s new column, “Louisville basketball should be given death sentence if bombshell NCAA allegations prove true”:
The program should be shut down, if the bombshell allegations announcement of allegations Tuesday prove to be true. If that doesn’t happen, the NCAA is useless.
Hall of Fame coach Rick Pitino should be gone, a gilded career ending in disgrace. It seems highly plausible that he will take athletic director Tom Jurich with him, a man who lifted an entire department, and now oversees its ruination.
They were heroes here, for many years. And now they have been party to multiple scandals and a stain so deep on the basketball program that it may never fully go away. SMU football knows the feeling.
Louisville Doesn’t Exist was once a popular t-shirt; now it may soon become reality.
