Breaking news out of the university of Louisville. UL Basketball will have to vacate their 2013 NCAA title along with the 2012 Final Four after the NCAA denied UL’s appeal today. This is the first time a D1 team has had to vacate a national championship during the final four era.
Quick Facts On UL Basketball Scandal:
- UL will vacate wins, final four, and championship between 2011-15 seasons.
- UL will pay fines equaling all revenue between 2011-2015
- One more violation could result in termination of the basketball program.
- Rick Pitino also must vacate all wins from 2011-15 which would remove almost 100 wins from him as well.
Quick thought: This is the harshest penalty ever in ncaa history, is this fair? UL President doesn’t think so, “We believe the NCAA is simply wrong… The NCAA ruling cannot change the accomplishments of our team.”
