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.

Rick Pitino addresses the sex/escort UL basketball scandal today in a bizarre interview. He references Roy Williams, his brother in laws death in 9/11, Kentucky Shame magazine cover among other things. At this point in an investigation, those talking have been well drilled by their law team on what to say and what not to say. A radio show is obviously not a court room but the radio host in the “friendly fire” zone of the Ville have set up the questions to get the answers practiced by Rick and his law team. This happens in court cases every day across the nation. This is common and not often realized by the consuming public. At any rate, here’s the listen and you can see what he got right from practice and what he might have messed up on…
