    Is anybody else getting concerned for Ed? Wrestling bulls? What is wrong with him?

    Surprised to find myself more interested in Madness than in UNC’s “punishment.”

    Long NCAA investigation of North Carolina. Look out, Thomas More College and Ranger College.

      There should be an extra penalty for all the absurdly obvious delays.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:09 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      They should be flagged for Delay of Game.

      Un-freaking-believable.

    I am a little excited that Pauly Shore is there today. The Weasel himself! I am having some nostalgia here.

      I watched that stupid Encino Man movie too many times.



    • J-Dub421

      Son-in-law too.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:31 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      Son in Law was terrible….but funny. Oh, you have chickens, are they original recipe or extra crispy?



    • J-Dub421
      10:42 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      The Weasel also did a cameo on Futurama. He stole Fry’s girlfriend.

    Are your freaking serious? NO PENALTIES! This is the end of the NCAA in my eyes.



    • J-Dub421
      10:11 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      They played academically ineligible players!!!!



    • runningunnin.454
      10:12 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      Did they apologize to UNC, too?



    • runningunnin.454
      10:24 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      Did they kiss their butts, too?



    • J-Dub421
      10:28 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      Pretty much RG.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:43 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      wiped their butts first, and then kissed them.



  6. runningunnin.454

    Well, well….that figures.



  7. Realme
    10:10 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

    Surprise! The NCAA is gutless and ridiculous.



  8. RealCatsFan
    10:11 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

    So I guess it’s true – Louisville should have provided ho’s for the general student population.



    • Realme
      10:11 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      They should be furious right now.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:26 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      Syracuse, too.



    • Realme
      10:31 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      And UConn. They never should have let their players make bad grades in real classes.



    • J-Dub421
      10:41 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      Memphis too. Who cares about Rose’s ACT/SAT scores? Academics clearly don’t matter.



    • Realme
      10:45 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      Yeah Jdub! It’s not like a regular student couldn’t allegedly cheat on the ACT.



  9. Realme
    10:13 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

    Every school might as well implement an African American Studies program, and be blatantly un-academic about it.



    • J-Dub421
      10:16 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      I sincerely hope UNC loses their accreditation.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:33 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      J-Dub, I believe that ship has sailed already. I think they put them on some kind of bogus “probation”. What a steaming crock of sh!t.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:36 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      Yep, Double Secret Probation.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:19 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      Losing accreditation would be the right answer, but UNC is too big to fail. No way they are shutting down the flagship of the UNC system. The board literally controls all public higher ed in the state. Even out of state colleges that only offer online courses to NC students have to get approval from UNC’s board.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:51 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      Clutch, sounds very familiar to the kind of intertwined cronyism that was going on here in Louisville. I am completely sick of “too big to fail” in this country. Can’t think of anything more un-American.



    • ClutchCargo
      12:05 pm October 13, 2017 Permalink

      RCF, I don’t disagree at all, I’m just calling it what it is. The pragmatic side of me serves me pretty well in dealing with the BS in this world. šŸ™‚



  10. runningunnin.454
    10:15 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

    Oh, the original Friday the 13th, October 1307 when the Knights Templar were arrested, tortured, imprisoned, and killed. Of course, UNC student athletes don’t study history….too hard.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:41 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      Well, I guess we can still hope for that giant sinkhole to open up under the “Dean Dome” and swallow everything up during the banner raising ceremony at “Late Night with Ol’ Roy”.



  11. J-Dub421
    10:30 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

    I agree that Tipton serves an important function as a check on corruption. However, he’s still a complete jerk with a shoddy, surly attitude.



    • Realme
      10:34 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      Exactly. You can be both civil and objective.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:35 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      I can’t believe they asked the players about the FBI probe….now that’s tacky.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:23 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      The asinine comment by Tim Sullivan was completely out of bounds. He would get his ass kicked for that one if there was any justice in the world.



    • Realme
      11:25 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      I am SO sick of reporters putting kids on the spot and trying to catch them saying something headline worthy. It’s getting disgusting now that it’s more than just Tipton doing it.



  12. ukjaybrat

    Rose *may have* not taken his SAT, Memphis’s entire season vacated.
    UNC verifiably kept players eligible with fake classes. No Punishment.

    • J-Dub421
      10:57 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      Exactly. And how is a high school student the business of the NCAA? That’s out of their jurisdiction. Memphis should sue. And if the NCAA tries to say that they hammered Memphis because Rose’s brother travelled with the team, then Memphis should still sue because UNC let Tyler Hansbrough’s mom take their plane all over the place after hiring her for a high paying job she wasn’t qualified for.



  13. Realme
    10:52 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

    I quit. I don’t want to see Louisville get punished. I want all banners and wins put back into Memphis, UMass, etc. record books. Give the FBI probe coaches back their jobs. Forget rules, standards, integrity.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:57 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      I think they also gave UNC credit for basketball victories during the 1784 season.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:07 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      Yep, let’s just abolish the NCAA and let it be a free for all, like the Wild West.



  14. DrSayre
    10:55 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

    Part of me is thinking Cal is saying nothing for legal reasons or something and it’s smart not say something… but the other part of me is thinking, Cal says something about everything, so it worries me that he isnt saying something…



  15. RealCatsFan
    11:09 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

    I think the FBI should actually be investigating the NCAA for fraud and collusion.



    • Realme
      11:13 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      The entity that exploits college athletes for profit, while pretending to be virtuous, is absolutely the most corrupt organization of them all. I bet the feds could catch Emmert and his cronies in all kinds of illegal stuff. I hope the karma that caught up with Louisville catches up with them soon.



  16. Realme
    11:26 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

    Ugh, it’s basketball and football season. Let the restaurant bracket die.



  17. Realme
    11:42 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

    Cal never directly says anything about Rick. Why would Matt think he’d suddenly was what he really thinks?



  18. Realme
    11:48 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

    I’m glad Tubby still has that job. Hope they have a decent year.



  19. RealCatsFan
    11:55 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

    This UK fan would be completely in UofL’s corner if they decided to give the NCAA the finger and refused to take down their banner.



    • J-Dub421
      11:57 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      Why not? If the NCAA isn’t going to punish UNC for 20 years of mass scale academic fraud, then why should Louisville comply with anything.



    • secrick
      11:58 am October 13, 2017 Permalink

      The only thing is U-6 just kept on cheating after they got caught. You can’t fix stupid so you have to do something about it.

  20. Meetings all morning. All I can say about UNC is Iā€™m not shocked. Teflon U. Have a blessed weekend everyone!



  21. RealCatsFan

    You can bet your last dollar that there will be few if any mentions of the UNC scandal during the NCAA Tournament. If it was UK skating by on something like that, it would all that Vitale, Bilas, et. al., could talk about.
