    Very worried we were sold a bill of goods on Smrt's expertise and influence.

    But the self-imposed postseason ban seems to have been a good idea as that definitely would have been part of these sanctions had it not been done then.

    Do we know who exactly was deemed ineligible?

    Not yet. We have guesses... and Ms. Powell's dossier.

    If they determine any player that was involved in the parties is ineligible, the title is gone, and I would say the majority of the wins during the specified time period will be gone.

    The penalties seem a little harsh to me, especially if they do vacate the title.

    I guess I just don't see that as a punishment is all. The games happened & Louisville won them.

    ... The NCAA, as of today, has instructed UofL to vacate its 2013 national title, a first in men's basketball history. Appeal to come.

    Meanwhile, Rick thinks this is all too harsh. He should have taken the UNLV job.

    Crawford's tweet is imprecise at best and technically incorrect. The NCAA has instructed UofL to provide names within 45 days. Once NCAA gets those names, they will vacate wins and titles.

    UofL (Smrt) has apparently said the names UofL would have to provide would include 108 wins and 15 NCAA games (including title).

    Precision of language is important in journalism and lacking here.

    What I find the biggest surprise? Is that the UofL honchos (Pitino, etc.) are surprised by this action. Come on man, you had to KNOW this was a very distinct possibility at least. HOPING it wouldn't happen, ok sure. Now, maybe it's all an act, playing it good for the appeals committee and they all knew and maybe even expected this. BUT, if they are true to the surprise they showed today, then to me they had their heads buried in the sand, up to their chests.

    I'm a UNC fan and I KNOW the exact same thing is a possibility for them. Now I HOPE it doesn't happen, but I know it very well could and would not be surprised by it.
