Louisville basketball faces more problems


The first college basketball game I ever saw was at Freedom Hall. It was February 1972 and I was six years old. The University of Louisville stomped on the Drake Bulldogs that night and I was having fun.

It was exhilarating times under former Coach and Hall of Fame member Denny Crum. I imagine Cardinal fans would love to see a throwback to those happy days instead of the headlines they’ve been reading over the past few months.

Following the dismissal of former assistant coach Dino Gaudio and his arrest and extortion charge, head coach Chris Mack has been suspended for six games in the upcoming 2021-2022 season.

Well, now the waters have gotten even deeper for Mack, an exceptional trainer whose incredibly successful run in Xavier made him the obvious choice to take the reins in Louisville a few miles away.

A notice of legal jargon-laden allegations against the Cardinals’ program has been amended by the NCAA and now includes additional and more damning charges against Louisville and Coach Mack who is accused of “failing to promote an atmosphere of compliance.”

The allegations against the university itself include, among other things, an accusation of prohibited activities carried out by non-coaching staff, managers and graduate assistants.

ESPN lists all charges and says the university will not respond until it has reviewed all of the allegations made by the NCAA.

You know, as a fan who divides his loyalty between Western Kentucky University, UK, and Louisville, I hate to see something like that happen to one of my teams. I look forward to the day when Louisville and its fan base can anticipate a season without worrying about a possible cloud of scandal about to rain on the Cardinal parade.
