BREAKING NEWS: NCAA Rejects UL Defense of Pitino

WDRB.com has released information concerning the latest report from the NCAA on the ongoing investigation into the sex scandal under the watch of Rick Pitino at the University of Louisville.

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 Louisville Courier-Journal is reporting, via multiple sources, that the NCAA will send its formal Notice of Allegations to Louisville on Thursday.

John Calipari Speaks Up On The NCAA And Scandals – AUDIO

“All I can tell you is this: If it happens on your campus and it happens with your assistants and those people you probably have a pretty good idea of what’s going on,” Calipari said. “If it happens back in their home town, it happens back with their family or other ways there’s no way you can know. You just don’t know. So, all I would say is most coaches have an idea if it happened on their campus. You might not be the first to know about it, but you eventually hear about it.” John Calipari

Katina Powell Speaks to Doug Gottlieb (VIDEO)

From CBS Sportsline:

“Katina Powell — the former escort who published a book detailing parties for Louisville basketball players and recruits that featured dancers and prostitutes — has agreed to meet with the NCAA for the first time next week, a source confirmed to CBS Sports.

ESPN’s Outside the Lines reported that Powell is expected to hand over documents to the NCAA — including copies of her journals and phone records. According to Powell, those documents prove that former Louisville staff member Andre McGee was in fact arranging parties for players and recruits in violation of NCAA rules despite his public denial.”

Check out an interview between Katina Powell and Doug Gottlieb. It’s not a good day for Louisville basketball. Again. Louisville already is Top 10 in NCAA violations. They could rise in the rankings very soon.

North Carolina Has Received Its Notice of Allegations from the NCAA

Well, the NCAA chose the least possible moment for mass attention to release the news that UNC has indeed been given its Notice of Allegations. Friday around noon of Memorial Day weekend was a gift to UNC for the least possible amount of exposure to the story possible.

The scandal involves the mostly fictitious department shown below.

“Tarnished Heels” is a book that documents the ongoing scandal. The book had some pretty damning evidence of UNC. The book is called “Tarnished Heels”.

On twitter, we often send this to @ESPN and @DickieV to mock the lack of coverage this has received. Ironically today, we sent this tweet just moments before the news broke. Yeah, we totally made it happen;)

 

Here’s what InsideCarolina.com had to say about the breaking news.

“The University of North Carolina has received its Notice of Allegations from the NCAA, but will not release the details of the report until a later date, according to sources familiar with the investigation.

The NCAA does not publicly announce delivery of a Notice of Allegations and member institutions are not required to release the full report. UNC is expected to announce the receipt of its NOA on Friday afternoon.”

This made me laugh.
