Louisville loses 2013 national championship after NCAA appeal fails

NCAA takes away a Louisville title over stripper parties

While current interim coach David Padgett was ultimately given the job due to his popularity with players and fans, Greer adds that Crean was ruled out after a host of anonymous fans e-mailed interim university president Greg Postel to express their displeasure.

"The pain this decision has created for our fans and our players were not involved in the events in question is perhaps the most regretful result of this determination", Postel said.

The school will vacate a total of 123 wins and pay fines totaling $600,000 after their appeal to the NCAA Infractions Committee, a process that began in June of a year ago, was rejected. It also singled out former coach Rick Pitino, who was sacked last fall after a federal fraud investigation implicated Louisville in still another massive scandal.

Louisville basketball's 2013 National Championship no longer belongs to the Cardinals in the NCAA record book. Louisville, who has been part of a major scandal that has to do with bribery, strippers and a bunch of other bad stuff, was ordered to vacate its 2013 national title.

While all of the FBI investigations are pending and we aren't sure if any will actually come to fruition, the precedent set by the NCAA in Louisville's case could make for an interesting future for college basketball scandals.

U of L made its final case to a four-person panel of the Infractions Appeals Committee in Atlanta on December 13, 2017. In total, the program will lose 123 wins, which ESPN Stats & Info says was second-most in men's Division I basketball over that span.

The NCAA Division 1 Infractions Appeals Committee announced its final decision on Tuesday after an unsuccessful appeal by the school.

Interim Louisville Athletics Director Vince Tyra expressed his regret. An adverse finding there could have stripped the Tar Heels of at least one national championship, and possibly more.

"We do cover-ups all the time", Potts told the Louisville Courier-Journal.

The Cardinals (18-9, 8-6 in ACC) begin a crucial four-game close to the regular season Wednesday when they travel to face fifth-ranked Duke (22-5, 10-4), as U of L looks to build its NCAA Tournament résumé.

The Committee on Infractions responded to the appeal by stating the penalties were appropriate due to the serious, intentional and numerous violations orchestrated by a university staff member for almost four years.

So now by our count, the Knights have officially claimed the 2018 college football national championship and unofficially via the internet claimed the 2013 college basketball national championship. Despite the decision to move on from the program's athletic leadership, the school did not agree with the decision. "But I also have done roses and flowers, anything with a lot of shading".
