Louisville granted 45-day extension to respond to NCAA Notice of Allegations

Louisville’s fate with the NCAA will be delayed.

After utilizing its 90-day response period, the Louisville basketball program has requested and received a 45-day extension to respond to the Notice of Allegations it received from the NCAA back on May 4.

Now, the school will not have to respond until September.

The NCAA is accusing Louisville of committing one Level I violation and three Level II violations, with former head coach Rick Pitino receiving one for failing to monitor the program and promote an atmosphere of compliance.

The accusations came after a two-year investigation following a federal corruption probe into college basketball.

For comparison’s sake, Oklahoma State received a one-year postseason ban, three years of probation, and recruiting restrictions for a single Level I violation. On the other end of the spectrum, Kansas received FIVE Level I violations for its role in the pay-for-play scandal, with their punishment expected to be handed down in the near future.

Will Louisville get the book thrown at them for its violations while on probation? Or will the NCAA factor in the program cleaning house the first time around and let them off easy?

Either way, we should know in the coming months.

    I understand giving second chances, but they are on probation and literally gave the NCAA the finger less than a yr later, and was the forerunner of the adidas shoe scandal. WHILE ON PROBATION! Yes, the new staff is a STEP towards cleaning the program, but regular citizens if violate probation automatically receive whatever punishment was on the shelf. And the players and coaches coming in are aware of that, so their should be no sympathy from the NCAA. 2 year postseason ban, a loss of 2 more scholarships, recruiting restrictions extended for another 3-5 years, and 3-5 years added probation either another violation while on it gives them the book

      Louisville is going for the record # of months spent stalling, presently held by UNCheats.
      Belonging to the beloved ACC cuts a lot of slack with the corrupt “Fightn Emmerts””so the punishment is anybody’s guess,but it will not be as bad as deserved.

    I say give them the complete death penalty and permanently shutdown UofL’s Men’s basketball program. I would allow any player on UofL’s team to transfer to another program with immediate eligibility granted to them.

    UofL should leverage the pandemic for a lighter sentence. Maybe offer to sit out this year’s already-imperiled, asterisk of a post-season as mitigation.

    They should have just taken the death penalty this year, since there won’t be any profit in playing this year.
