Louisville To Vacate Men's Basketball National Title After NCAA Ruling

I can not say this strongly enough: We believe the NCAA is simply wrong. The pain caused for our fans and the players who were not involved is perhaps the most regretful result of this decision.

For their rule violations, the NCAA ruled that the men's basketball program must vacate its records from 2011 to 2015 - including the 2013 title and a Final Four appearance in 2012. It did not find then-U of L Head Coach Rick Pitino guilty of failure to monitor his program, but found him guilty of failing to monitor McGee, and suspended him for the first five ACC games of this season.

The NCAA, in its final decision on the sex scandal, said that the basketball team's former staff member knew that his actions violated NCAA bylaws.

Tuesday's ruling will sting at Louisville, which must surrender its 2013 national title less than six months after a conference rival, North Carolina, was able to avoid sanctions when the NCAA ruled that it had broken no rules in a major academic scandal involving dubious classes disproportionally taken by major-sport athletes. Now if some other people are going to come and say, 'Hey, you won it all, you're the champion, ' we'll take it. Keatts was not implicated by the NCAA in any of the infractions.

The appeals committee, which included members from George Washington University, the University of Texas and Vanderbilt University, similarly defended the financial penalty.

The BJP had bagged just 5.70 per cent votes in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections and 1.5 per cent votes in the 2013 Assembly polls. Meanwhile, the BJP has joined hands with the IPFT, which wants a separate state for tribals, and is fighting 51 seats.

With nine regular-season game remaining, UofL announced a self-imposed one-year postseason ban in February 2016. Forcing a program to strip a beloved championship feels more like a shiv to the heart, and that is the point.

"The NCAA's ruling", he wrote, "cannot change the accomplishments or the excitement generated by our Cardinals basketball team".

So now by our count, the Knights have officially claimed the 2018 college football national championship and unofficially via the internet claimed the 2013 college basketball national championship.

Louisville Interim athletic director Vincent Tyra said the Cardinals will have to face the facts after losing their appeal, since he believes another appeal would go nowhere. We won those games. 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.

But whatever ultimately happens to Ricky P's tattoo, a word of advice is in order for the next school that goes before the NCAA's Infractions Committee or its Appeal Committee: Hire North Carolina's legal eagles instead of Louisville's. "But I also have done roses and flowers, anything with a lot of shading".
