Dakich: Louisville appeal denied, 2013 banner coming down

We will soon hear some bad news for the University of Louisville regarding its appeal to the NCAA, according to ESPN’s Dan Dakich.

Dakich said on his afternoon radio show that Louisville’s appeal was denied on Tuesday, which means the Cardinals’ 2013 national title is coming down and the school will be fined $15 million.

“You can like that; you can not like that. You can believe that; you can not believe that. But that is a quote from somebody in the room,” Dakich told his listeners. “Take that for whatever you want to take it.”

“The expectation from this source, who I trust, is that Louisville has their appeal and their appeal has been denied.”

Louisville has 24 hours to formulate a response, so this should all go public very soon, if we’re to believe Dakich and “person inside the room.” The source believes Louisville will try to delay its response.

Get your popcorn ready.

    Entirely earned. Now take down EVERY ONE OF UCLA’s banners, for worse – their players were bought openly. Which is public knowledge. Even Wooden acknowledged it while refusing to talk about it. The NCAA is keen on punishing Kentucky colleges and that’s fine when it’s earned. But Walton’s alma mater was the worst abuser of all time and should be treated as such.

      And pull a couple down for UNCheat and dook while you are at it. But we all know that will NEVER happen to the golden calf programs.

      I don’t know where you get “the NCAA is keen on punishing Kentucky colleges”. UL is getting hammered because Pitino knew prostitutes were being furnished for his players and his recruits. Pitino is also being investigated by the FBI. So there’s that.

      UK hasn’t been punished since Claude Bassett was caught making illegal payments to high school players and their coaches 20 years ago. That punishment was deserved.

      Southern Cal, Ole Miss, and Penn State have been punished in recent memory. Arizona, Auburn, and several other schools are being investigated because of the shoe scandal. None of those schools are in Kentucky.

      I will say this for Little Brother. When it comes to cheating, they are unrivaled. They have lost their coach, their AD, their pres, their board, and their championship banner. That has to be the grand slam of cheating. .

    Louisville is trying to delay its response until Super Bowl Sunday.

    Also, Dakich still sucks.

    I now have stuck in my head the Creed song My Own Prison, but instead of “no appeal on the docket today” it’s “no on the appeal from Dan Dakich today”. Thanks.

      Kind of like the Elton John song – somebody had to point out that “Hold me closer, Tiny Dancer” sounds like he is saying “Hold me closer, Tony Danza”. The song has never been the same for me since. 🙂

      I have some good friends that are big IU fans – and they are haters. I believe it to be deep seated jealousy of KENTUCKY and what perhaps could have been for IU.

    I’m not a Louisville fan, but if they decided to sue the NCAA because of the ridiculous crap that went unpunished at UNCheat, I would be behind them 100%.

    Come back and talk to May when the greatest cheater of all times the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill cheating Dean Smiths take down the 93 the 05 and the 09 banners.

    Until that happens if I was the university to Lovall I wouldn’t take down that banner I tell the NCAA to stick it

      I realized the my dictation at 4:05 PM was not translated very well by SIRI.

      Since I am a early 70s graduate of UK, and, have never lived in Jefferson County. I could care less about U of L and what happens to them. What happened at U of L is tragic and sad for the graduates and other fans of U of L that are more hurt by the NCAA probation that is on the way that former employees of U of L that allowed such to happen. I know when we when through Emerygate and the Eric Manuel issues and the probation that followed it was embarrassing and hurtful to me as UK alum who greatly cares about UK and its basketball program.

      What infuriates me, is the charges made to U of L or to UK, are nothing compared to the 20+ years of academic fraud and other issues that happened at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. It all started with Dean Smith and they had to have all coaches following Smith within the North Carolina family to keep the fraud going. Boosters and powerful state leaders paid attorneys over $18 million dollars to protect the myth of Dean Smith and keep at least 3 national championship banners from coming down and 1,000+ victories because they were won with academically ineligible players.

      If I was a parent of one a recruit that on their official visit to U of L or any school for that matter, and they were introduced to hookers and who knows what else, I would be infuriated. But, to me playing college athletics means you are a student athlete and you are matriculating towards a degree regardless of difficulty. It does not mean that you are not a student playing college athletics, be given grades and a diploma that is worthless…that is a fraud.

      If I was U of L, I would dare Emmert to come take down the banner. I would tell U of L to tel the NCAA to stick it. The NCAA is no longer valid. The non-decision on the biggest cheater of all time took care of that.
