    Well, technically wasn't it Adidas that paid the $100K? UL paid nothing because they got their shoe company to pay.

    I'm sure it isn't actually the case, but adidas seems way shadier than Nike, et al when it comes to college hoops.

    Or Nike is better at not getting caught.

    I'd be shocked if a Nike rep didn't assist this investigation in one way or another. When you're dealing with something as widely as corrupt as college athletics, its generally the direct competitors to the industry leader who get popped.

    Well at least we know that Roach [name redacted] never acquired the type of talent or success at Wake that this has to be any type of concern for mother so dear.

    They're going with the "we didn't know" defense.

    "We have no idea about any of this stuff," said Kenny Klein, a spokesman for the University of Louisville athletic department. "This is the first I've heard of it. Nobody in basketball is aware of any of this."

    LVille makes money for the NCAA. They'll get out of it.

    That October 28 home game needs to be signs and banners and taunting of unseen proportions. Instead of a blackout or similar nonsense, we should have colored shirts across the entire stands (or empty chairs, as applicable) spell out WHY DO YOU LIE?

    Hahahahaha fucking Louisville. Are they serious with this shit? Next we'll hear from the AD how much they regret that it distracts from the rest of their basketball season.

    I think Pitino's statement really underscores that Louisville got serious about cleaning up its act after their staffer was caught directly paying for hookers, though admittedly only $5,400 over a four year period. I think it's clear that Adidas took this upon themselves to enrich their pockets down the road on the cheap with these future stars, and the fact that Pitino cited luck rather than payments is further proof that he had no knowledge or control over this situation.

    I mean give these guys a break. We didn't even run our special plays that were foisted upon them. I just worry about how this distraction impacts their student athletes in their preparation for games this week.

    They have gotten a lot of mileage out of that approach the last couple of years.
