Louisville Receives Notice of Inquiry from NCAA

According to Louisville’s WAVE 3 News, The University of Louisville has received a notice of inquiry from the NCAA. The notice is in relation to the FBI’s bribery and corruption investigation affecting college basketball since September of 2017.

A UofL spokesperson confirmed receiving a verbal notice on March 8.

Now, the notice does not mean that Louisville is in any kind trouble. It is simply the first step the NCAA must take before announcing that Louisville is under investigation. If that investigation were to turn up evidence that Louisville has committed rule violations, they then will receive a notice of allegation which normally carries penalties.

While the FBI investigation has affected multiple programs, Louisville has no doubt been hit the hardest. When the case was initially released 17 months ago, it led to the dismissal of Head Coach Rick Pitino and Athletic Director Tom Jurich. Two other assistant coaches, Kenny Johnson and Jordan Fair, were also fired for there alleged roles in the payment of recruits.

Of course, Louisville is still on probation for the Katina Powell sex/dorm rom stripper party scandal of 2012. Surely, if the investigation finds evidence of further rules violations while UofL is already on probation, it would carry stiff penalties.

Guess Which NCAA Programs Have the Best Basketball Recruiting Classes

Go ‘head. Guess what teams have the best recruiting classes for the 2019-2020 NCAA basketball season. Is it Duke? No… Is it Kentucky? No… Hmmmm, how in the world do the teams with the best two recruiters in the country not have the best recruiting classes?

Have they lost their touch?

You can draw your own conclusion at the end of the article, but here are the top 4 recruiting classes:

Any of these seem a little weird to you? Well, they should, because three of these four teams were named in the most recent FBI investigation. Arizona, Louisville and USC are all part of an FBI probe that is looking into the payment of players to secure commitments. I am not going to get into all of the details of the investigation, but how has no one realized this?

Here is the part that is most unbelievable. Out of Arizona, Louisville and USC; Louisville is the only one to fire their previous coach. I don’t want to live in a world where the University of Louisville is the voice of ethics.

Don’t get me wrong; I am all for players being paid, but right now, I am not sure why Sean Miller still has a job and why the NCAA isn’t losing their goddamn mind about this.
