    I know Matt has always said Julrich was a great ad. I’ve never felt that because they were making students pay a fee everytime they gave a coach a raise. Julrich always paid top dollar for a coach, even in non revenue sports. We know now they were funneling money from the foundation to help cover the cost, and now supposedly the General studies are almost broke. Paying his son 800k from the foundation, the arena deal, keeping Pitino after the first two sex scandals, hiring the no character Petrino back. This guy is as crooked as the day is long. He has been the Mafia Don (Tom) of college sports.

      Jurich also got an extra $6 million+ from the foundation under the table.

      Remember, anyone can start a sports blog. That doesn’t make them an expert or a good character judge. Jurich was slimy, no matter what Jones says.

      It’s a great day to be a Cats fan.
