Penalty acceptances not in the Cards

Louisville calls NCAA penalties for men's basketball 'draconian'

Louisville calls NCAA penalties for men's basketball 'draconian'

This is the latest step in a case that began almost two years ago.

This appeal comes almost two months after the NCAA Committee on Infractions made its official ruling against Louisville, which said the men's basketball program must vacate 123 wins, the 2012 Final Four appearance and the 2013 national championship.

In June, the COI ruled that head men's basketball coach Rick Pitino violated NCAA head coach responsibility rules when he did not monitor McGee.

Additionally, his reading of the game is quite mature - a skill that Pochettino is likely to appreciate. In 43 appearances he scored six goals and was awarded the player of the season award by the club.

From there, U of L blasted away at penalties handed down by the NCAA's committee on infractions, namely the vacating of several seasons worth of victories - including two Final Four appearances and the 2013 NCAA championship - and the forfeiture of NCAA tournament money earned during those seasons. McGee, the former basketball operations director, received a 10-year, show-cause penalty from the governing body.

The NCAA suspended Pitino for five ACC games next season, placed the program on a four-year probation and demanded a "vacation of basketball records in which student-athletes competed while ineligible from December 2010 and July 2014". Both penalties hinge on the participation, the response added, are discretionary and could be deemed inappropriate if the student-athlete isn't culpable for misconduct and received a negligible benefit that could restore eligibility. While the University acknowledged Andre McGee's conduct and affiliation with an escort, Katina Powell, it stated they had cooperated fully and had no idea of the events as they happened.

"Imposing those penalties here would be grossly disproportionate to the conduct alleged to have rendered the student-athletes ineligible". Still, the school called the NCAA's measures "draconian" and "unjust". Louisville also announced scholarship reductions and recruiting restrictions for assistant coaches.

Lukaku isn't the only player being reunited Mourinho, who also convinced former club Chelsea to sell Nemanja Matic to United. Guardiola said: "Hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we spent this season".

Pitino and the school indicated that it will appeal his penalties.

UofL asks that the COI's vacation and financial penalties should be reversed, and at the minimum, that penalties imposed in connection with the 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 be reversed.
