Fox Sports podcast: Jurich is running a rogue athletic department

jurich

FoxSports.com’s The Audible podcast with Bruce Feldman and Stewart Mandel brought on ESPN’s Brett McMurphy to discuss the possibility of Tom Jurich bolting to Texas in the midst of these hooker allegations in Louisville. It’s a move I predicted as soon as I heard the report and it was a hot topic of discussion on The Audible today.

Jurich was reportedly in the mix when Steve Patterson took the Texas athletic director job 22 months ago. Patterson resigned last month, leaving the Longhorns with an AD opening once again.

The Audible says, “I think that would be a tough hire if you’re going to say: Okay, we botched it with Steve Patterson and now we’re going to take a guy who has got a rogue athletic department going.”

Listen to the clip here.

Jurich and Charlie Strong, together again?

    If the allegations turn out to be true, I don’t think Texas touches Jurich at all.

    Why would Jurich leave on his own? He needs to operate under a corrupt administration and he’s got Nirvana at U of L.

    Jockitch would be a fool to leave UL of his own volition. And, Texas probably won’t want him…if they have even a shred of integrity.

    This is good stuff and makes me laugh. I just wish out folks would have asked Cal today about Skal. I know he mentioned something a month or two ago. But since most college incoming freshmen have already been cleared and a skal hasn’t, why not ask Cal about it again?

      Most incoming freshmen don’t have as many questions surrounding them as we’ve all known Skal has had. Just because there are still questions to be answered doesn’t mean that they won’t clear him.

      Nice try. What does this have to do with Tom Jurich? Nothing. Idiot.

    I was wondering when karma would catch up to ol” TJ. He has single-handedly built UL into an athletic power from humble C-USA beginnings. He has done all of this at the expense of academics, morals and hiring coaches who treat women with little or no respect but few can argue with his pure results on the fields of play. He is literally one of the most powerful, if not the most powerful, men in Louisville and you wonder how an AD at a commuter CUSA school would have so much power? Deals with the devil often end up with burnt fingers.

    There is a reason Kentucky turned down Petrino, when he approached UK about its opening. I`m glad we hired Stoops instead.

    Jurich going to Texas might be the only way Strong gets another year there. The Longhorn faithful don’t look kindly on butt-whippings like last week.

      Texas won’t come anywhere near Jurich with the stench that surrounds him at UL

    Bring in a male prostitute to run the longhorns – epic! LOL

    Tommy should have gotten out while the gettin’ was good. Now he’s stuck at Louisville along with the P & P boys because no self respecting Power 5 program would want anything to do with them. They’d rather see all the sleaze stay confined to one place.

    Mike Perrin is going to do a tremendous job at Texas. Jurich knows better than to mess with Texas’ mess.

    The author denied on the radio today that the girls were acting as prostitutes…thus refuting the primary charge of the scandal.

    And he admitted the texts in the book were just “re-creations” from her mind….since we all know drug addicts have no problem re-creating 700 texts over a 4 year period from memory…..since that “phone virus” ate all her texts….but that happens to everyone.

    And Lyle apparently refuted one of the strongest charges from the book…that he was given two prostitutes on his visit….

      Gee, this proves it, it was all a lie. Nothing wrong ever happened. According to Louisville fans “this type of stuff goes on everywhere. Except in Louisville, the only school with a book about it happening here.”

      Wait, are you telling me that we ain’t gonna get into no trouble at all now?

      At a place with two head coaches with proven sexual inappropriateness on their record? Absurd.

    Hey Drew – look at your posts today. Are you obsessed with LOUISVILLE athletics? You certainly take liberties with facts and prefer to operate in innuendos. If you could improve your composition TMZ could be in your future.

      And if you weren’t a Louisville fan, your favorite team wouldn’t suck ass! 😛

    UL is trash. Jurige is trash. Match made in heaven. Period. Not even debatable. Garbage.
