      • So this is interesting. The Adidas deal that Louisville had previously before it's renewal this year funneled 98% of it's investment directly to Rick Pitino. Also Jurich's daugher works for Adidas sport marketing and is still employed there.

        • I saw that too - but what I don't know is what the going rate is for that type of thing. Pitino was pulling down $1.5M from Adidas deal. For comparison, Cronin gets $600K from in his current contract from the Under Armor deal. Hypothetically, if Cronin had the resume that Pitino has (on the court success...putting aside scandals for this discussion), I would imagine he would command more than the current $600K. In the end, most of the successful D1 coaches are handsomely compensated, and many of their deals are put together creatively (base salary + shoe deals + tv/radio deals + public appearance + camps, etc)

            • Looks like the FBI has files on Kansas but can'€™t release them yet.

                  • A committee! That is so NCAA-like. They can stall their action there until they see which way the wind eventually blows.

                    I think the U of North Carolina academic fraud probe is also in "committee".

                    • The AP reports that "over two dozen universities with major hoops programs" are conducting internal reviews. Anybody have any clues to who they are? https://apnews.com/7f2caab1acb848149...-of-NCAA-teams

                      Also, Pitino is now officially fired.

                        I would certainly hope UC is among those schools that are conducting an internal review. Call it due diligence.

                        I would be far more concerned if UC was doing nothing to review/investigate.

                        Any organization that becomes aware of inherently bad industry practices owes it to its stakeholders/shareholders/investors/employees/fans/students/etc... to do it's due diligence to discover if it applies to the organization

                        • Deadspin is reporting that Rick Pitino has sued Adidas in Federal court for emotional distress. I am not making this up.

                          • Pitino thinks the world revolves around him. I hope Addidas files a counter-suit & takes a ton of money from him. What a tool!!!

                            • Tom Jurich was just fired for cause.

                              Rick Pitino has been subpoenaed by the FBI.

                              • Wow! If Rick the snake lies to the FBI & gets caught, he would be in a world of hurt!
