Mark Jurich says his e-mail about seats wasn’t about seats (it was 100 percent about seats)

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.”

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.

    I would name this guy DOTD (Douche Of The Day), but honestly he qualifies for Douche of the Month with such advanced douchebaggery.

    No doubt the guy is an out of touch douchenozzle but it is indeed possible that something like the ticket situation can set off a reaction about something bigger. He pretty clearly made the point that he feels like it’s one example of an overall lack of respect for his father and his father’s legacy. I found the ticket switch quite amusing and well deserved but that doesn’t mean he’s being dishonest about his reasoning in writing.

      That is the hilarious part. Given his father’s legacy, the family should be watching the games from Applebee’s.

      moving them back a few rows to still really good seats shouldn’t set him off like this, so he can say it’s not about the seats it’s about the respect, but it is actually about the seats bc he views the seats as a lack of respect.

      If there are other ways he feels disrespected, he sure didn’t point them out here, he just ranted about seats. Which makes it pretty obvious it’s about the seats!

    Little Marky, your seats weren’t moved. You’re not entitled to them anymore. The seats you were using are for the UofL AD. That’s not daddy anymore.

    In a sense he is correct. This wasn’t about seats. It was about a borderline criminal family that shows no contrition, but heaps of unwarranted entitlement. The complaints about seats are just a vessel.

    He’s an entitled POS, but the ticket thing just seemed to be the straw that broke the camel’s back. The email is mostly about Tyree disrespecting his father. I can understand a son standing up for his father.

      His father doesn’t need anyone to stand up for him. They both need to sit down in their free seats and stfu.

      What would you do if someone was disrespecting your father?

      How TF do you think Tyra disrespected Jurich!?!? By honoring his word that they are EVEN allowed to come to the Games??? Dude explain how they were “so called disrespectful to Tom, anymore then Tom disrespected the University.

      His father was running a mafia style bully ring to strongarm his way to bilk the university! He used the foundation to give his son money he didn’t earn. They should just be glad the FBI didn’t charge them under the Rico act along with Ramsey, pitino and the people in their offices behind the thefts! His dad deserves whatever comes his way.

    Backpedaling like a Pro Bowl cornerback. His message was loud and clear, he’s just embarrassed that most people didn’t side with him when he decided to go public with his whining.

    A lifetime subscription to the turtleneck of the month club would take care of this.

    is the whole idiot thing an act that drew does and it just flies over my head, or is drew really as dumb as he seems to be?

      If Drew’s humor flies over your head, you’re a mental midget, and I’d imagine a lot of other things fly over your head as well.

    The way i read it, it wasn’t about the seats. It was about feeling disrespected and the seats were just the trigger. But that doesn’t change my reaction to his email at all. His message was loud and clear, and still wrong, still narcissistic, and still immature.

    It’s about the seats. Mark “son of a”Jurich, you are a L O S E R.

    Total trash over on Floyd street. You get publicly fired from UL, an ongoing law suit, and self proclaimed disrespect from UL and it’s administration. Yet you still go to the games and “support the cards”? Well you support as long as your seats are free and mid court suites, right?
    He’s a douche, his dad is a douche. That’s all

    As much money as father and son stole from foundation, they should buy tickets.
    These guys still don’t get fact they were maggots.
