Maybe. Has a Nike school been involved yet?

Southern Cal and Arizona are a Nike schools.  Also one of the guys at the center of this was a major Nike rep for years.

Pitino likely to be canned today. Jurich might be shown the door with him. This according to sources around University-6. Pat Forde calling for the death penalty, even, and he's been a UL apologist for years.

And for the Cal haters, I'd be all for canning him if he has ever been, or is cheating in any way (please direct me to the NCAA document(s) that cite him). I've met the man, and I don't think he would do any of that (and I was skeptical when he was first hired). He's in this thing for the kids, and to help them get to the NBA the right way (read his books). If you watch him recruit, there are quite a few 5* and 4* kids that he doesn't bother with. If he sniffs that the kid or the family are expecting hand-outs, or the kid thinks that he won't have to work in class, or on the court, or if he thinks the kid can't handle the spotlight at UK, he will drop them like a hot potato. He also makes sure that any early-departing player has a path back to UK to complete their degrees, if things don't work out for them at the pro level.

 

Lolololololololol

Yes Cal has been surrounded by the scoundrels. Every college coach has. That's part of the point of this whole thing. There's scumbags all around college basketball (in the shoe companies, AAU leagues, coaches, etc., etc.). So, if Cal is found guilty, I'd be the first one calling for his head. But, if he's doing it right through all of the muck and the mire (as I suspect), then I think that's pretty admirable.

I'm not trying to convince you guys to not hate Cal. Hate him all you want. But, I think if you're hating him for cheating, then it's unfounded.

And, while I have laughed at the UL program quite a bit, the deeper and darker this goes, and the impact it will have on the Louisville economy, and regular people in the town (all the ancillaries related to UL basketball), makes me pretty sick to my stomach. It's embarrassing for my state. This is our 2nd largest university carrying on like some kind of third world dictatorship: thinking they were above the law.

I hope UL can recover quickly, with good leadership. I applaud the interim president Postel for pulling the trigger on the Jurich firing. Maybe the UL house will finally be cleaned.

And, word is Pitino is gone. Jurich was asked to can him. He refused, so Postel canned 'em both.

People hate him because he's a scumbag, not because he wins too much.

You're almost as delusional as @SECats

There are plenty of scumbags who don't win and no one gives a shit about them. People hate Cal because the see him as a "scumbag who wins".

I don't see very many scumbags raising millions for Haiti relief, hurricane Harvey relief, and the many other organizations he's helped solely by his position at UK. He gives generously, but also persuades others to give generously, too.

Again, hate him because he's the UK coach, a scumbag (your opinion), whatever.... I get it, I even welcome it.

And, I never said he wins too much.

Besides, how can you win "too much"? That's just a stupid statement.

-Surrounds himself with scumbags at work.

-Gets sanctioned.

-Surrounds himself with scumbags at work again.

-Gets sanctioned again.

 

---Gives charitable donations.

 

---is Jesus

 

This is easier than I thought.

      Dude down the street quit making jigs. Got smelter and all the tools. About 5000 hooks, 150 lbs of lead, air blower for powdered paint, 30 jars of different color paint, forms for jig heads and worm weights, and a bunch of stuff to go thru. Going thru be easy cause he gave me the organizer with all organized in it. Here are my first ones.

      Cut the billions in aid we GIVE them every year and instead use it to protect our citizens...for starters... Or maybe renegotiate nafta to benefit us instead of mexican government run factories and companies that move to shitholes for cheap labor...use the $$$ saved and brought back to proyect our borders... I dunno, sounds to me like they'd be paying...one way or another..
