Thread: College basketball bribery scandal

  1. #61
    According to Matt Jones Louisville had a verbal commitment from Chris Mack that he would become Louisville's head coach if Pitino resigned. Bet they wish they had fired his ass when they had absolute cause to do it.

    They paid prostitutes to aid recruiting and used the "we barely paid for these hoes" defense. Pitino only got suspended 5 games.

    As long as there are players performing for very little income relative to the value of the product they are producing, there will be a black market. This isn't going to change a damn thing anymore than any FBI bust has changed drug dealing.

    What if he was employed by the NCAA as like a Grim Reaper to carry out punishment to programs for a period of time?

    Try again. Looking for someone who actually had success.

    yep, only workable solution is to separate minor league sports and academics

    results in some unfortunate consequences, but you can't too much money at stake and too many vulnerable kids involved

    Is it too much to hope Petrino gets caught up in this mess?

    Pitino will find a way to blame it on 9/11

    It would be nice to hear some blame thrown the ACC's way for letting UL into the conference.

    Pitino may well survive this. There isn't a sleazier piece of shit in all of college athletics than Jurich.

    I bet if Swofford fined Louisville $25k and told them to stop, they'd be a much cleaner program.
