Phone records show UofL assistant was in contact with Andre McGee at time of parties

A new report from the hardworking staff over at WDRB exposes more juicy details regarding the Louisville basketball program and the program’s hiring of strippers and prostitutes.

According to the report, phone records obtained by University of Louisville police show former UofL assistant Mike Balado was in communication with Andre McGee over a five-day period in July 2014. This is around the time McGee was alleged to have arranged for Katina Powell and friends to visit the Minardi Hall basketball dorm for parties, while McGee was miles away from campus as an assistant at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

Records show Balado (or Coach Mike, as he’s known to those familiar with the scandal) and McGee spoke by phone or text over a dozen times. Coincidentally, McGee was in contact with Katina Powell at the same time. (Purely a coincidence, I’m sure.) WDRB has the conversation log and it shows McGee’s communication with the other two were only minutes apart.

Balado, now the head coach at Arkansas State, denied any involvement.

    You’re too late in reporting this. I already heard about it on Tradio this morning.

    This can’t be true, because some lying skank is responsible sible for all of this.

    Deny deny deny, the UofL way. I used this same strategy as a child. My mother was the only one who “believed” me.

    Definitive proof that McGee wasn’t a “rogue employee” or a lone actor like Pitino and U of L fans kept trying to say he was.

      The “rogue employee” argument is my favorite excuse along with the “we lost recruits because of the hooker parties, therefore we should not be punished” argument. And they call us cheaters, and homers…

    Oh, so Coach Mike was the coach named Mike. Shocking. All this time I thought it was “one rogue individual”.
