Saw in the Courier this morning that Marty had no idea that anything like this was going on. He said that maybe it made him look dumb. Maybe it does. Also at the end of the article it mentioned that we have picked up a JC 6'5" shooting guard who Marty says can play either PG, or SG. Looks like the only way we can learn something about the team is if it's attached to a much larger story. I suppose that's better than nothing.

The Juco pickup is not new news. This was announced a while back.

I think Couteau at least deserves a trial before his jail time :lol:

I gotta admit I got a pretty good laugh out of this comment LOL

In all seriousness though, I agree with letsgoaces, I don't think they are going to worm their way out of this one.

Funny observation: fans of other big school aren't jumping up and down about their rivals being 'caught.' UK fans are very silent about Louisville's troubles. P-5 fans are taking a wait & see approach.

The reason other schools fans are not posting a lot on this is because they are probably scared to death they are going to be caught and face the penalties themselves. They know they may be guilty so better keep quiet.

Re-doing my pre-season Final Four picks. I'll take St Mary's in the West, Milwaukee in the Midwest, Stony Brook over #1 overall Vermont in the East, and Mercer with a walk-off 3 over a scrappy #6 Alcorn in the South.
