Here are some key statements from the NCAA in the new release:
- “Put simply,” the NCAA said, “arranging and funding sexual intercourse for a prospective student athlete on an official visit is a severe violation, wholly inconsistent with NCAA principles, whether valued at $80 or $120.”
It seems the NCAA is a bit perturbed about UL using the argument that the prostitutes were “cheap” would make a difference in the ruling from the NCAA. It also seems clear the NCAA isn’t taking the “arranging and funding sexual intercourse for a prospective student athlete” lightly pointing out it’s “a severe violation”.
- The NCAA said that “the factual information in this case does not completely support Pitino’s statements.” The NCAA report contains little information not already made public. But it does include a remark – presumably from a U of L player or former player — that “it was common knowledge among his teammates that the adult entertainment was occurring in Minardi. [Name redacted] reported that whenever a highly sought after prospect was visiting the institution, adult entertainers were in the dormitory.”
The NCAA has put into question nearly every argument made by the University of Louisville and Rick Pitino. The 2013 banner is jeopardy and the door is wide open for severe penalties coming to the University of Louisville from the NCAA. It’s all in the open now.

The Wildcats avenged their loss at Florida with a big win in Rupp Arena and took over first place in the SEC. Malik Monk led the Wildcats with 33 points and Bam Adebayo had his 5th double-double of the season.
Cats Kill Gators
Back in the 2003 season, Kentucky was in the middle of a 26 game winning streak as it made it’s way eventually to #1. This game made the nation take notice that we were for real. The 2003 team remains one of the funnest to have ever taken the court in Lexington and it’s defense was one of the best in history. We were perhaps a Keith Bogans ankle injury to yet another title. No other program has what we have, and no other program has as many “almost” seasons. Watch the Cats dominate a really good Florida team.
Yeah, we get it. It’s a broken record. Grayson Allen trips again. This one looks undeniable. But, remember, he’s a Dookie who gets special treatment. He’s silver-spooned. He’s more evolved than the rest. His arrogance supersedes him. Follow this link for a handful of his flops and other Duke-taught activities.

Kentucky vs. Arkansas 1995 Highlights
The mid 90’s was the classic Kentucky vs. Arkansas era. Arkansas came in and thought they were going to take over the SEC. They made a strong case early with wins at Rupp and a national presence. Well, we know they didn’t take over the SEC, but, the games in that era were true battles. The “Rodrick Rhodes missing the free throws” game is one of the those games everyone remembers. It’s one of those games most can tell you where they were when the game was played. Arkansas was fresh off of a National Championship and many believed Kentucky was about to get their 7th in 1995. UCLA would take the prize beating Arkansas in 1995 and UK would have to wait until the next season to get the championship. Check out the highlights of this SEC classic.
