U of L responds to NCAA notice of allegations Tuesday, Sep 22 2020 

By John McCarthy–

The University of Louisville released a statement in response to the NCAA notice of allegations Sept. 21. U of L is facing serious NCAA violations, especially since the Cardinals are repeat offenders.

U of L’s response on Sept. 21 argues that the NCAA’s allegations against the university “arise out of a criminal conspiracy to defraud the University of Louisville,” said the statement.

The FBI found, during an investigation of U of L, that representatives of Adidas had conspired to pay Brian Bowen, a highly touted recruit. Adidas agreed to pay Bowen $100,000 to play for the Cardinals and sign with the shoe company upon going to the NBA. These allegations resulted in the firing of men’s basketball head coach Rick Pitino and athletic director Tom Jurich back in 2017.

The essence of the Cardinals’ statement explains that Adidas attempted to defraud U of L with the deal offered to Brian Bowen and his family. Louisville’s response states that Adidas cannot both be acting in U of L’s best interest while plotting to offer a recruit compensation, resulting in the degradation of the university.

The 75-page response comes after U of L requested a 45-day extension to thoroughly finish their response. Louisville currently awaits a response from the NCAA.

Louisville Football’s Kei’Trel Clark given immediate eligibility Monday, Aug 31 2020 

By John McCarthy–

Louisville football cornerback Kei’Trel Clark has been granted immediate eligibility for the 2020 football season. Clark is a transfer student from Liberty University, where he played in all 13 games during the 2019 season.

“We are thankful to the NCAA for this decision and to Liberty for supporting this process,” said Louisville head coach Scott Satterfield.

Clark is welcomed to U of L’s football program as he enters his sophomore season. As a freshman, Clark started seven games for Liberty, gathering 38 tackles and batting down six passes. Clark plans to compete for one of the starting positions at cornerback for the Cardinals.

With another cornerback entering the Cardinals’ rosters, Clark will add needed depth to U of L’s defense. “We’re excited for Kei’Trel and the opportunity he’s going to have to be able to play immediately.” He’s a terrific young man and has made an immediate impact in our secondary in fall camp,” said Satterfield.

Madness in March Monday, Mar 16 2020 

By Cole Emery —

The madness continued as COVID-19 caused the NCAA to cancel all remaining spring and winter championships March 12.

This cancellation will affect more than just the men and women’s basketball tournaments, as this time of the year is one of the busiest times for college sports.

The other NCAA championships cancelled due to coronavirus are: bowling, fencing, men and women’s ice hockey, men and women’s indoor track, men and women’s gymnastics, rifle, skiing, men and women’s swimming and diving, wrestling, baseball, beach volleyball, men and women’s golf, men and women’s lacrosse, rowing, softball, men and women’s tennis, men and women’s outdoor track, men’s volleyball and women’s water polo.

The NCAA was believed to be searching for postponement options but continued to run into logistical issues. With a growing number of universities around the country closing for the for foreseeable future, a definite timetable was not available and decisions had to be made.

Even though the NCAA cancelled all spring championships, they did not address regular-season competition. Many conferences have made the decision to suspend spring athletic competition until further notice, including the ACC, American, Atlantic Sun, Big 12, Big South, Big West, Conference USA, Colonial, Missouri Valley, Mountain West, NEC, Southland, Summit, Sun Belt, SWAC and WAC.

The conferences that announced the complete cancellation of spring seasons are: American East, Big East, Big Ten, Ivy League, MAAC, MEAC, the Patriot League and Stanford, independent of the rest of the Pac-12.

Another cancellation put into affect March 15 is the suspension of on- and off-campus recruiting for all Division I sports through April 15.

With all of the bad news the sports world is receiving, some good news has been given to help student-athletes. The NCAA is expected to grant eligibility relief for all student-athletes who participate in spring sports. A few amendments to the current rules related to scholarship and roster limits will have to occur but seems feasible due to the uniqueness of the situation. It will be more difficult to give eligibility relief to winter sports, since some teams had already completed their seasons while others were about to begin postseason play.

The Division I Council Committee will be discussing possibility of eligibility relief for winter-sports athletes, but it is too early to see how that will be structured.
