I do know that if these allegations against McConnell are true that he is a hypocrite since he recently said:
"I don't think the universities need any advice from Congress about how to run their business," McConnell told ESPN.com's Pat Forde. "I have concerns about it, but I'm not an expert on why the universities are doing what they're doing. I assume it is in their own best interests. From a fan perspective, it is a little perplexing. I don't know what's going to happen to traditional rivalries when they're traveling thousands of miles to play."
He probably said that before Louisville was seen as possibly being left out. As soon as that became possible Louisville went kicking and screaming to an alumni.
