Montrezl Harrell says he knows nothing about the allegations

Screen Shot 2015-10-06 at 9.05.27 AM

…and here come the denials. Four days after the UofL stripper scandal broke, former Louisville players continue to deny Katina Powell’s story. The latest is Montrezl Harrell, who is quoted by the Houston Chronicle saying he had no knowledge of the scandal:

“I don’t know anything about any of that,” Harrell said. “Apparently, my name is in there. I don’t have anything to do with that. U of L is doing their job, holding an investigation, looking at it. That’s where I’m leaving it. Simple as that.”

Harrell is a rookie for the Rockets, and claims he never heard or saw a party like the ones described in the book, although he’s mentioned in the book several times. Powell even said he had a certain joke he would keep making with the escorts that’s not safe for us to share.

“Somebody told me my name was in there,” Harrell said. “It goes without saying, I don’t know anything about it. I didn’t too much stay at the dorm. I stayed off campus. I had a girlfriend off campus.”

Keep toeing that company line, Montrezl.

    This is just sad; and, UK fans’ revelry is even sadder. This does UK and the State of Kentucky no good, whatsoever. The UK-UL rivalry is one of the best in the country, always hyped on national TV.
    We lost the UK-IU rivalry when they fired Bob Knight; now, you want to lose this one, too?
    Wise up.

      UK fans “revel” in it because of UL fans claiming UK to be a “cheating” program for so many years. The fact is, this is dirtier than anything Kentucky has ever or will ever do. There’s your reason.

      The fact is UK doesn’t need to play UL to be relevant and for there to be a rivalry the other team needs to win a few games.

      I completely agree, Runningunnin. Sad that none of these commenters do as well. While it will be easy ammo when a UofL fan tries to use the ‘cheating’ line of thought against Cal and UK, it still makes the city and state look trashy. And the rivalry is great for the sport and for UK. This whole ‘we don’t NEED UofL’ argument is ridiculous too. Obviously we will be fine and get exposure without them, but what is wrong with a friendly rivalry?? That seems idiotic to me. The same fans that posted above saying ‘f the rivalry’ are contradicting themselves with that one sentence. Obviously you would not have that line of thinking if it wasn’t a good rivalry in the first place.

      Most UK fans are revealing in it because most UL fans always try to act like UK would be nothing without cheating, and UL is above reproach. You are all a bunch of hypocrites! You call Calipari slimy, yet have hired Petrino after his scandal, employed Hurt, who paid recruits and has had numerous violations, and of course Pitino who cheated on his wife and paid for an abortion, all the while patting himself on the back for being a :good Catholic”….. your obvious talking out of both sides of your mouth has led to the giddiness over this situation. Your program is a cesspool, and in many ways……..

      You know all of those line bearded, flat bill wearing, Crown Royal drinking, gold chain wearing thugs that you like to poke at? Well, they are the UofL equivalent to you.

      Nope, I am not a UofL troll. I am a Big Blue fan. I just don’t like mouthy fans that bash a complete fan base based on their perception of a few UofL fans.

      I am pretty sure that you represent the LOUD and MOUTHY minority of UK fans that the UofL fan base despises, in turn.

      Yes, I’m over 50 & i remember the UK-IU rivalry. I also remember being ushered into Coach Rupp’s office where he entertained me & two fellow freshman for 45 minutes with wonderful stories, pointing out marvelous memorabilia.
      I also remember hitch-hiking to Frankfort to see the undefeated UK freshmen play. The area was still under construction; and, in the dark, I stepped into a 4 ft hole, severely injuring my knee. I remember Jimmy Dan Connor skipping out on an after-game party with his team mates and girlfriend to drive me back to Lexington to the UK Med Center. I’m proud of my time at UK; let’s hear some of your stories.

      Some of our fan base is severely lacking in manners. Oh well, sign of the times. I’m a UK fan since I was about 8 years old, but I can respect a good rivalry, and I can respect other programs and other fans as well. Sure, I want to see UK demolish UofL (and IU) whenever we play them, because I so happen to have friends and family who are fans of both schools. We like to give each other crap from time to time, but it’s in fun – like it’s supposed to be. I can joke with them about the crap going on at UofL, but at the end of the day, it’s just sports. Pretty sad situation if it went down like the book depicts it.

      I think it is a good thing that we can get some perspective in the comments section from fans who have been around long enough to see significant events in the history of UK sports – both good and bad. Like our WWII veterans, there is going to be a hole left when those folks are gone. We are free to disagree with them, just as they are to us, but we need to respect the opinions of others and stop short of calling a fellow fan a “dumbass”. Rant over.

      UKbrad, although not very competitive, the Davis years provide us with some of the best comic fodder about IU that I can remember. I recall the time he ran out onto the middle of the court in a rage while the play was still going on because he disagreed with a call. They were zoomed in on the players, and all of a sudden you saw these black dress shoes coming into the picture.

Just like IU fans crying about not playing us no more. We get all the attention every game. Yall sad bunch of dirty rotten bastards



    • CatsFanFrankfort

      That’s the whole point of a rivalry, don’t you see that? Yes, obviously we will be fine year after year in terms of exposure, national attention, etc. So what if UofL or ANY of our rivals stand to gain more from the rivalry? Its still a historically fun and heated battle between two programs that are linked by geographic location, success, and right now, a head coach. You also clearly wouldn’t point out UofL or IU if they weren’t our historic rivals. Isnt it nice to have them to be there as rivals in the first place?

      Yeah, and I believe that was one of her daughters too which is sickeningly sad. It cracks me up at the stupidity of UL fans wanting this woman to go to jail (she might and probably should) but that means her story was true which also means that underage girls were a part of this prostitution ring/thing/whatever the hell you call it. It’s even dumber talking about suing her, REALLY??!…suing a hooker, yeah that’s going to make you a lot of money and be worthwhile.

      The whole thing is sad and I am surprised so many are running to the defense right now, if this were my program, I would shut up and wait and see. If it’s true I would be calling for a LOT of heads to roll and I would hope that my AD and university president would take that upon themselves to resign along with all involved so that fans didn’t need to ask for them to. They would deserve it and we would deserve whatever punishment was handed down. If the school chose to turn a blind eye then then I guess I wouldn’t be a fan anymore, how can anyone with decency think this is OK or support it?

      Trust me card fans you hope that NO PART of this is true because if any of it is then it’s a huge deal and goes beyond simply NCAA. The same issues came up with the Penn State and Miami investigations when serious criminal accusations were part of the issue. If any part of her story is true this will be a criminal case as well as an ncaa investigation. With the accounting practices already under SEC investigation and now the state AG looking as well Louisville may just need to rent out a section of campus to all of the investigators that will be there. It’s getting crowded in the athletic department I’m sure. Maybe Jurich and Pitino can lend them their offices, not sure how long they will be needing them anyway…

      …and you may be right. If so they should become a private university rather than public. There will officially be zero dignity left and public money shouldn’t go to paying for the kind of BS and waste we’ve been hearing about. You truly want to be like Miami or USC then pay for it yourselves. You can have hooker parties twice a day at that point as far as I care. I hope they prove me wrong, this is sad and pathetic. No shame whatsoever.

    For two seconds on Friday I thought we might see humility from them. Nope. I believe the author. He said he thoroughly checked this stuff and has solid reputation. It will look worse to deny deny deny when they have phone records, texts, receipts, pictures, etc. but go ahead Cards that’s what you’ve become known for. Blame the girls too, it was their fault. Somebody should post a parody video of It Wasn’t Me song by the way. Shady as hell program keeps on trucking, Damn.

    At least Miami football did it off campus with private boosters, heck, they went to international waters for some of their crap. This reminds me of people in DC defending and voting their mayor back in office after he got caught red handed with a crack pipe and hookers. “That’s our mayor!”.

    Maybe this will bring a new meaning to “red handed” too.
