Ohhhhhhh you hate to see it.
More NCAA violations showed up on the Louisville athletic department’s doorstep today. Those things are piled up like Amazon Prime boxes now.
In this delivery of bad news, the NCAA’s Notice of Allegations included four alleged violations. And since it ain’t no fun unless the homies get some, the NCAA saved one of those for Rick Pitino for his role in acting like, “What? I had no idea!”
The Cards’ athletic director and university president held an emergency Zoom press conference Monday afternoon, in which no one could figure out how to turn their mics on, and AD Vince Tyra (the anti-Jurich) hinted at Louisville fighting back this time around. (You may recall we’re not too far removed from the other time they cheated.)
“I think it’s highly unlikely that we miss out on our chance to play in next season’s NCAA tournament,” Tyra said, while noting he is not guaranteeing that stance.
University president Bendapudi was a little more straight forward. She said, “No,” when asked if the university will self impose penalties.
The circus continues!
