Mark Jurich is sorry, he says, in a tweet sent out Thursday morning. He is sorry that his “message got lost” in the email he sent to new University of Louisville athletic director Vince Tyra about the location of the Jurich family’s season tickets at UofL basketball and football games.
“It’s never been about the seats,” he wrote. “I know there is not a bad location in either of these beautiful venues. To the UofL fans I offended, I am truly sorry.”
I’m sorry my message got lost yesterday — it’s never been about the seats, I know there is not a bad location in either of these beautiful venues. To the UofL fans I offended, I am truly sorry. I’ll be at every home game with my boys — we are excited to support the Cards!

But in reality, it is absolutely about the seats. You kidding me? The whole damn thing is about the seats. It’s why he wrote the e-mail in the first place. If you were to read the whole e-mail and then someone next to you said, “Hey friend, what’cha reading about?” You would say, “Oh it’s an e-mail from Mark Jurich about seats.” It’s obvious it’s about seats. What other subject matter would it be? It’s crystal clear. Just like “Moby Dick” is about a whale and “Gulliver’s Travels” is about the travels of Gulliver, Mark Jurich’s e-mail is about seats. The e-mail doesn’t get written if his seats (his free seats he didn’t earn) don’t get moved.
“My message got lost.”
No, you’re backpedaling because everyone is laughing at you.
