Louisville must vacate title, wins; pay fine

22 February 2018

The NCAA has confirmed the University of Louisville must give up its 2013 national championship in men's basketball, denying the school's appeal of a decision a year ago that penalized the Cardinals' program for "arranging striptease dances and sex acts for prospects, student-athletes and others".

University of Louisville interim President Dr. Greg Postel speaks to the media during a news conference, Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2018, in Louisville, Ky.

The ruling also states that Louisville must repay money earned through its appearances at the NCAA tournament in years 2012-15. The Cardinals will now be the first team to vacate an NCAA basketball championship (several others, including UCLA in 1980 and MI in 1991 and 1992, have vacated Final Four appearances due to NCAA violations).

For the past eight months, the fate of Louisville's 2013 national title has rested on the university's last-gasp bid to overturn the penalties handed down by the NCAA last June.

Justin Trudeau reiterates denial of Sikh separatists in cabinet on India trip
That event is believed to have been partly behind the bombing of an Air India flight from Canada in 1985 which killed 329 people. Modi will hold bilateral talks with Trudeau on Friday following which a number of agreements are expected to be signed.

Student-athletes, who should be appropriately titled employees, are the ones really responsible for lining the pockets of universities and staff. No, it took an FBI investigation into corruption in college basketball that implicated Pitino and Louisville for the school to finally part ways with him. "At the end of the day, the mistakes that Andre McGee made didn't have to do with us. Instead, it was ignored". "Like you, I believe the university needed to appeal the decision as strongly as possible".

In fact, Pitino is suing the University of Louisville Athletic Association for $37.6 million for breach of contract after he was sacked in October. We brought in some of the best legal minds in the country, including the nation's top litigator, who helped develop and argue our case.

"The pain this decision has created for our fans and our players were not involved in the events in question is perhaps the most regretful result of this determination", Postel said. Until athletes are paid for their time and dedication to a school's basketball program, the NCAA will always be a stain on the sport.

First and foremost, we are a university. Turning away coaches of Crean's caliber due to fan pressure is not a luxury they have, at least not until they know for certain how much more the NCAA is going to come down on them. We will move forward in an open, transparent and collaborative way.
