NCAA Finally Busts The Louisville Basketball Program For Prostitute Scandal


About two years ago when news broke of the University of Louisville basketball alleged prostitute scandal, the whole world was calling for coach Rick Pitino’s head. After further investigation the University imposed its own postseason ban for the 2015-2016 college basketball season in efforts to get ahead of the fire storm stemming from this scandal. Well apparently that wasn’t enough for the NCAA. Today the NCAA announced that Louisville head coach Rick Pitino has been suspended for the first five ACC games of the 2017-18 season and that the basketball program itself gets a 4 year probation. The NCAA says that the suspension stems from them determining that Pitino “violated NCAA head coach responsibility rules when he did not monitor the activities of his former operations director.” Pitino is not allowed to be involved with the team in anyway — practices, team meetings, etc. — during the suspension. Let’s see what people are saying about this recent punishment handed down by the NCAA.


Just add this to the long list of college sports scandals. When will this end? Will it ever end?
