Louisville loses NCAA investigation appeal, will vacate 2013 national title

Louisville Ordered to Vacate 2013 Championship

"We believe the NCAA is simply wrong to have made this decision". Tyra said he was reluctant to spend money taking legal action trying to overturn the NCAA's decision. It's not going to bring closure to the successes and memories our teams had. The decision culminates the governing body's investigation that followed allegations in a 2015 book by escort Katina Powell that former Cardinals basketball staffer Andre McGee hired her and other dancers to strip and have sex with recruits. The team had already self-imposed a postseason ban for the 2016 ACC and NCAA tournaments. Pitino was to have served a five-game suspension under the ruling. Louisville later imposed scholarship and recruiting restrictions in an effort to mitigate further NCAA discipline.

Postel said Tuesday that Louisville offered complete cooperation with the NCAA investigation in this matter and that the NCAA's own rules encourage cooperation with the inference that penalties might be mitigated. Rick Pitino, who coached the Cardinals at the time, has denied knowledge of these parties. "I'm sad for our players, I'm certainly sad for our staff and those who helped create the success and for our fans in particular".

"This dark cloud has hung over our heads for more than two years, and it has had a negative impact on our athletics program, our fans and the entire university family", Postel said.

The university's interim president Greg Postel, said at an afternoon press conference that he agrees the conduct that led to the penalties was wrong but that he disagrees with the committee's ruling.

Stone, who moments before had been dozing, charged down the train aisle as El-Khazzani levelled an assault rifle at him. In a stroke of luck, the attacker's AK-47 had jammed and he had accidentally dropped the magazine from his pistol.

The NCAA's ruling can not change the accomplishments or the excitement generated by our Cardinals basketball team.

Besides taking down the red-and-white banner hanging beside the American flag and two other title flags in the Cardinals' downtown arena, Louisville must erase wins before and after that championship, along with other records. Pitino was placed on unpaid administrative leave and Jurich on paid administrative leave on September 27 following the school's involvement in the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe that initially involved the arrests of 10 people.

In a wide-ranging interview with ESPN's Jay Bilas on October 19, Pitino said he takes "full responsibility" for any staff member he hires but also emphasized that he thoroughly vetted his assistant coaches.

Here's what he had to say, via the Courier-Journal. His lawyers claimed the school wrongfully suspended and then fired him, and they argued that he is owed $38.7 million for the remainder of his contract through 2026. Not long after, Pitino was ousted by the university - but not before filing a wrongful termination lawsuit. He has denied knowledge of the pay-for-play scheme and transferred to SC on January 10.
