James Ramsey resigns from the UofL Foundation

gd-ramsey

Take heart, Louisville trolls and fans of justice across this great state: the reign of James Ramsey is over. This morning, the former UofL president finally resigned as president of the UofL Foundation, the true center of corruption on Floyd Street. His resignation is effective today, and marks the official end of his role with the University. According to Joe Sonka, Ramsey received no payout and there was no opposition to the decision.

Free chips and queso for everyone! (Not really. I wish.)

    Is it true that Rick Pitino is getting his job?

    Scandal University has mastered the art of the Friday news release.

    Something tells me this is like a bad horror movie and the villain isn’t actually dead yet.

      He’s at the abandoned amusement park.

    Based on some of the comments I’ve seen about how UK should have hired Petrino, I won’t be surprised to see people wanting him to come to Kentucky now.

      Did we hire Petrino? Every one has a opinion but good judgement prevailed.

      No we did not, Thank God.

      “ESPN’s College GameDay Built by the Home Depot will broadcast from the University of Louisville for the first time in school history“…. in 2016. Finally.

      Only 9 years after UK hosted it. 😉

      *side note* UK has GameDay all the time in basketball. Louisville? Not so much. 😉

      Painful as losing is, I would rather lose with Stoops than win with Petrino and that whole bunch at the U of L administration. You should be able to respect a program for the people as well as winning. Petrino likely would have done to us what he did with multiple other programs – run off and left it in shambles. Huge numbers of the U of L football team had to be kicked off after his last tenure there leaving Kragthorpe in the dust.

    The ONLY news the nation will hear tomorrow (outside the KSR bubble) is whether or not Louisville can make it to the national playoffs this year. That is what Petrino has done!! The only mention of Ky you will ever hear from this point forward is concerning coaches on the hot seat for having losing programs. Which news are the recruits going to listen to?

      I understand where you are coming from mr paw. players would want to play for a team competing for conference titles and being ranked and all that. my son is 12 and he isn’t D-1 material but if he was, there would be no way as a parent I would want him playing for a man with the moral compass of petrino. There are many views of how many 2nd, 3rd, even 4th chances a person should get but after repeated offenses to show that he is an individual that should not be trusted in anyway, I’ll take another losing season over that any day.

      Serious question: why does cats paw continue to pretend to be a UK fan on here?

      Is he that intellectually impaired that he still – after ALL of his constant anti-UK/pro-UL drivel – thinks that we think hes a fan? Can someone be that idiotic?

      Come out of the closet, bro.

      And then when they lose to FSU no one will be talking about them and the playoffs, except delusional Louisville fans. Then when they lose to Clemson, UofL fans will finally realize no playoff. Then when they lose to Houston and prepare to go back to the Music City Bowl, they’ll talk about how they are going to a bowl and UK is not. Enjoy your playoff talk for a few more hours cp

      … and in a year or two, the nation will hear the news that Petrino has become entangled in YET ANOTHER scandal for Scandal-U. Anyone think Bobby can top being on national TV with a neck brace and road rash? About the only way I could think of topping that would be standing up in a courtroom with your hand on a bible telling the judge how you jizzed down your leg! LMAO! This stuff just can’t be topped! 😀

      Glad you got petrino as your coach now why don’t you go to a lville site and do your whinning, or won’t your mommy let you.

      cats paw still around – putting on his cute little act – there might be a meniscule number of people here who are fooled by it – maybe.

    Well Hallelujah! Maybe U of L can hire someone who won’t ignore the embezzlement of millions of our tax dollars this time.

    Don’t get me wrong I want to win and I’m not saying stoops is the answer and will take us to a bowl any time soon. But the win at all costs is not something I can get on board with and I’m thankful that the university hasn’t adopted that moto.

    Petrino will be involved in a scandal sometime soon, he coaches at Louisville.

      I think it is a prerequisite at Louisville. You either have to have had a sex scandal in your past, or you have to promise to be involved in one within 3 years of your hiring date.

    I now respect Mr. Ramsey. This is how a real man acts. One positive action can erase a good amount of negative. Hats off to him.

    UofL fans (namely Cats Paw) might want to calm down; all this winning and success in football might make Petrino leave for a relevant football program…

      Yeah, that certainly has never happened before, especially with this loyal coach!

    Ramsay must of had a pile of evidence against him and others to fall on the sword like that. Wonder what it is??

    Could be Ramsey had an insiders view of the NCAA penalties coming down whenever they do.
