Louisville’s Punishment

first_imgRecently the NCAA handed down its punishment to the University of Louisville for its basketball “sex scandal”.  Most people feel that because Ric Pitino is a Hall of Fame Coach the NCAA just gave them a slap on the wrist rather than a severe punishment.The Cardinals will lose some basketball scholarships and Pitino must sit out 5 conference games next year.  My opinion is that they should have received a penalty similar to that which was handed out to SMU a couple years ago.  That punishment was referred to as the Death Penalty.  In those cases, the school’s program involved is literally shut down for a period of time.  Louisville’s punishment was simply too lenient.last_img

He also helped establish the ACC Championship Game and Orange Bowl partnership for football. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse officially joined the ACC alongside Pittsburgh, Notre Dame and Louisville in 2013 as a second wave of additions. The first wave, which expanded the number of ACC schools from nine to 12 in 2004, included Boston College, Miami and Virginia Tech.The conference last August also launched ACC Network, a vision Swofford proposed in July 2016 that gave the league a revenue generator and an avenue to highlight non-revenue sports.The ACC’s Council of Presidents announced Monday that it will revise its constitution and bylaws to improve governance. Syracuse Chancellor Kent Syverud will serve as chair of the ACC’s Board of Directors, which the 15 league presidents and chancellors will fill.
