    Welp WKU better start offering a Card Refugee discount on their basketball gear for all these scattering Cards fans

    • Careful. Someone pointed out on another thread that Rick Barnes left an Adidas school for a *Group of 5* school and somehow immediately bagged a top 10 class. Hmmm…

    • Sorry, Rick Stansbury. I haven’t finished my first cup o’ Joe yet.

      What are the chances that UofL goes after Kenny Payne if they can Pitino? To me, that would be a natural hire for them.

      I doubt KP would want his first head coaching job to be trying to clean up this mess.

    I don’t blame U6 fans for turning to KSR for true news, in spite of the glee. Listened to some of yesterday’s Terry Meiners this morning. They just keep talking around it. Never seem to want to say what Louisville did in actual words. He did call U6 Athletics a garbage barge on fire that won’t move on down the river though.



    • J-Dub421
      10:43 am September 27, 2017 Permalink

      Pitino and Jurich controlled the media for so long. The media stopped looking into anything even remotely nefarious that they were doing, which is why U of L got away with everything for so long. Their fans were able to bury their heads in the sand and pretend that none of it was real, and it was just Matt Jones and UK fans lying and making things up. They just got a harsh slap of reality.

  6. Well, I can’t say I’m too sympathetic toward those who cast so many stones our way because we hired Cal, but I don’t want to gloat too much for a couple reasons:

    1) I hope none of our coaches were doing the same thing
    2) It’s still hard to believe this is the same guy who was such a rock star at UK that told the team to:
    a. Look at the “Kentucky’s Shame” SI cover because they’ll owe you an apology
    b. Then so quickly “Took us from ashes to stardust” as Cawood said.



  7. ukblue22
    10:10 am September 27, 2017 Permalink

    How many times did the website crash yesterday? Any correlation between the WKU 5-Star walking out twice and this scandal?

  8. I believe one reason he said “It’s better for you to call us than for us to call you” is that he’s hoping some coaches that they have nothing on will fess up. I could be wrong.

      Some of you guys can’t enjoy this because you are worried about Ky. That’s like waking up every morning and hoping it doesn’t rain.Just enjoy this and only worry if you need to. This is FUN, join in.

      Cal didn’t look worried in his Twitter photos last night. He was having fun faux obliviously tweeting about his time in D.C. or wherever he was. If UK had anything to do with any of this, it would be the lead story, top billing, main FBI target, etc.

    • I hope you’re right!

      I would hate to become a Louisville fan but i would not blame Kenny for taking the job and i would not blame them for trying to get him. Still would not be a fan.

      he might leave at the end of the year. but not now. too late to take over a team.



    • J-Dub421
      10:48 am September 27, 2017 Permalink

      I don’t think KP would want any part of this mess. Cal always tells his assistants to take head coaching jobs in situations where they can win. U of L will be a dumpster fire for quite some time.



  13. runningunnin.454

    The FBI only seems interested in the shoe company execs or coaches that took a piece of the pie.
    So anything about UL will have to come from the NCAA….we will all be quite old by the time that happens. Does this take the heat off UNC?



    • Realme
      10:33 am September 27, 2017 Permalink

      Well, we still get to enjoy that banner dropping while we wait for the NCAA to process this new stuff. How embarrassing for them that they didn’t have a clue about this stuff. UNC? Well, I guess they’re hoping the world has forgotten about that.

      The entire men’s BBall staff at Prairie-View State is extremely nervous right now.

      Wait…there’s heat on UNC???

    • I’m not holding my breath on UNC, nor have I ever. Frauds.



  14. runningunnin.454

    Why would Payne (or anybody) walk into this mess?



  15. Realme
    10:35 am September 27, 2017 Permalink

    What about Bowen and the other payees? Do they leave campus in shame or do they go to class and practice as usual for now?

    It doesn’t hurt my feelings that the fake Wildcats are involved in this. We have a relative Arizona fan that tries to trash talk us and this will shut that up I’d think.



  16. millertime98
    10:38 am September 27, 2017 Permalink

    they will give it to an assistant. No coach wants to take over a program about to lose multiple years of probation and multiple scholarship loses. It’s a travshamockery



    • Realme

      Crean is probably desperate enough.



  17. Realme
    10:39 am September 27, 2017 Permalink

    If this has further ramifications that end up taking down NCAA college men’s basketball, then I’d worry about us. If it’s literally everybody, then it is what it is. But I think that most programs are clean, especially the ones that get players paid at the next level instead of now. We don’t need to cheat. Not with Cal at the helm.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:49 am September 27, 2017 Permalink

      This opens up the thing about the NBA taking the elite players, paying them a decent wage, and operating a baseball like “minor league”. But, college basketball will survive…it won’t be as exciting; and will revert to the old days of amateur college athletics…the old days like in the ’20’s and ’30’s. The games may look like Fairfield playing Iona; but college basketball fans will still support their teams.



    • J-Dub421
      10:54 am September 27, 2017 Permalink

      I’m not worried, and here’s why:

      1. Everyone in the NCAA and media has wanted to bust Cal for years. If they had anything on us it would have broken by now.
      2. Cal doesn’t seem at all worried.
      3. Cal has always been a great recruiter and we’re already a Nike school. We don’t need to cheat to get recruits, they already want to come to UK.
      4. If we were implicated in any way Cal, Barnhart, and Capilouto would already be running damage control.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:58 am September 27, 2017 Permalink

      Got a text forwarded last night to me from someone who is on the UofL basketball staff saying that Pitino is gone. However, he also said that if Chuck Person sings, UK may be next.

      Realme, nope. Just a little tiny bit worried that the tentacles of this mess could extend our way. Hopefully not, but if so, then they better bust UNC and Duke, or I will be done with college basketball.

    Ha ha, Matt…learn history. Nixon didn’t say “you won’t have Dick Nixon to kick around anymore” after he resigned the Presidency; he said that in 1962 after he lost the California gubernatorial election. It was called the “last press conference”.
