    Louisville Basketball Scandal---- are the cardinals about to be cooked?

    The University of Louisville is investigating allegations made in a new book that a former men's basketball staff member paid escorts to dance and have sex with players and recruits, according to Yahoo! Sports, which has obtained an advanced copy of the book.
    http://www.wave3.com/story/30174416/...asketball-team


    The book alleges that over a four-year period, Powell brought women into Billy Minardi Hall – the basketball dormitory on the Louisville campus that is named after Pitino’s late brother-in-law – through a side door to entertain players and recruits. Powell also says her dancers – which included her daughters – also entertained Louisville players at other locations off campus. After the women danced for the players for an agreed-upon sum, Powell alleges that she would negotiate a second payment for the women to have sex with the athletes.

    Ruh Roh Raggy!

    As much as I hate to say this, given it is Pitino, I wouldn't be shocked if it went on at Kentucky either.

    I literally can't breathe after reading some of the comments on Twitter. The best ones aren't Redszone friendly, so I'd suggest just typing in Rick Pitino.

    It looks like there are pictures in the book of this lady and the players. This isn't looking good for Louisville at all.

    Man, the ACC has been scandal central.

    Syracuse cheats to keep players eligible, Miami gives them cash, Florida State allows them to rape and abuse women, and the mother of all scandals, UNC, which apparently allows everything. Now UofL.

    Ouch.

    My feeling is that this sort of thing is widespread across the country. I had family in Morgantown when RichRod was at WVU - they claimed that it wasn't a secret among the community that his wife was running a brothel for recruits.

    There were photos going around on Twitter recently of Alabama football recruits and their sorority "hosts".
    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    I absolutely agree. It's going on everywhere, Louisville just got caught. It may not be blatant prostitution, but the sorority girls are certainly helping the cause.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13, 15
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    It's extra benefits and therefore a violation of NCAA rules.

    Not only that, it looks really bad on the university-- U of L has had, in recent years, three fairly damaging sex scandals-- the 2009 Karen Sypher/ Pitino tryst, the Chris Jones rape/ consenting sex scandal last season, and now this. None of that mentions the asinine decision to re-hire Bobby Petrino after his own little scandal.

    It certainly doesn't look good on the home-town university, that's for sure.

    Makes me wonder about the Chris Jones dismissal. Was this one of the girls involved in the "ring"?
