Watch Matt on “Outside the Lines”

If you missed it earlier, Matt was on ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” this afternoon to discuss the Louisville stripper scandal alongside Andy Katz, Seth Greenberg, and host Bob Ley.

As you might imagine, the fact that ESPN chose Matt to talk about it instead of a Louisville media member created quite the uproar in Card Nation, but Matt was very professional in his remarks, going as far to call Rick Pitino humble during his press conference on Friday:

Over the weekend, Katina Powell, the madam of the escort service, told the Indiana Business Journal that Andre McGee told her Pitino “knew about everything,” which Pitino denied again today to ESPN. Like Seth Greenberg, I can’t help but wonder if surveillance footage of the escorts coming in and out of the dorm exists, and if so, why we haven’t seen it yet.

    Is it true that the scandal has caused the Yum Center to lose sponsorship? It will now be called The Frito “Lay Center”.

    Yeah sure, that video footage hasn’t been accidentally ‘lost’ since they found out about this in August. Riiiiiiiiight.

    Most business only keep surveillance footage for 30-60 days because storage and upkeep can get expensive quickly. If there was any surveillance footage, it’s probably long gone.

    Good job Matt. I would have trouble not smiling at what Andy said too although that will be the pic that goes viral on UL message boards too.

      Just think: it could be 1980. 1986. And that’s it. 😉

    Is it time we welcome Card fans to UK fandom yet? You know there are a lot of Card fans who just keep taking showers trying to wash this dirt off themselves. The solution is simple for them, find a new team that isn’t filthy.

    Its official,, Pitino will get a Oscar for best actor. Jurich will get best supporting actor.

    solution really is dealing with it from the TOP and getting rid of Jurich. His arrogance and win at all cost mentality is what has allowed the school to become associated with sex scandal – time and time again.

    Great job as usual Matt. I just wish Seth would not talk so much and would have given Matt more time to talk. I think Matt knew much more about this, and could have given more insight than the other two. I really find it hard to believe Rick did know EVERYTHING that went on. My question is, where did the money come from. There has to be a trail.

    on the outside the lines segment they said uofl knew about this in august and it is just now cuming out. i guess ricky was not as shocked as he let on in the presser.

      The more I read/hear, the more I am confident that their little program is about to take a big, BIG hit. 😀

      Precisely. Rick’s known about this for a month. He was also very quick to say he is not denying it. He’s just disappointed and shocked anything like that could happen in his program.

      In other words, what evidence Louisville’s lawyers is aware of is enough that they’ve told Rick and Co. not to deny it or call anyone a liar.

      Compare it to everyone at UNC denying no matter what is alleged.

    What is the over/under that those dorm surveillance videos have been deleted? How about slipping in through the dorm back door? I know security is monitored more closely today in dorms, but other students let me in through the back way many times while on campus.

      I’m so sure every visitor to players on every campus is meticulously tracked…yeah, right. Pretty sure whoever’s at that desk just snorts and looks away when the chicks in high heels and miniskirts stroll in at 11pm.

    Great job Matt. Keep up the good work, don’t let the pressure off the tards. From reading the UL boards thou, you may want to invest in a bullet proof vest.

      Rival fans always look for someone else to blame instead of admitting their program could be doing anything nefarious. Just look at the way UNC fans have tried to blame their little cousin NC St.

      This is something almost akin to what we endured with Billy Clyde Gillespie in his treatment off players such as Jodie Meeks but only this is much worse. I felt embarrassed with BCG at the helm so I know this is gonna be hard for the Louisville fans. Yes look for deep repercussions . I don’t think Louisville basketball will be the same for the next ten years. No way that parents are gonna entrust there sons to RP and Louisville. Major hit for UL but it may devalue the rivalry now since UL will have a hard time fielding the quality teams as in the past. Tragic

    I only root for UK and I dislike UL but I hope this turns out to not be true. It is just dirty. I hope recruits aren’t banging hookers on their official visits anywhere.

    I bought and read the new book “Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen,” by Katina Powell and Dick Cady that “exposes” U of L for paying prostitutes for players and recruits. This is salacious crap without a shred of proof. This short book is mostly about the woman’s sad life and her problems with pot. There appears to be no credible proof of anything sanction-worthy by the University of Louisville – the photos are all innocuous, and the texts may or may not be from Andre McGee. Don’t waste your money like I did – this is a smear job designed to make money for this self-admitted “madam”. There’s just nothing there (and I’m a UK graduate and fan).
