    Louisville players sue NCAA for 2013 title return

    A group of former Louisville men's basketball players have filed a lawsuit against the NCAA over the organization's vacation of the Cardinals' 2013 national championship and 2012 Final Four.
    "If all we get is this championship back for Louisville, and the players, and the city, and Luke's MVP back, that's going to be plenty pay for us." -Lawyer John Morgan
    This will be interesting to watch. Some pretty harsh words quoted against the NCAA, including "Morally bankrupt". Hard to argue that.

    Q "Why do you like Duke, you didn't even go there." A "Because my art school didn't have a basketball team."

    The NCAA may indeed be morally bankrupt. But this feels a lot like the pot calling the kettle black.
    "UNC makes me think of a pile of vomit in a school hallway. They keep trying to throw more and more of that peppermint neutralizer on it and act like it's candy, but the puke smell won't go away." -- (Internet-winning comment on N&O article re: UNX cheating scandal)

    Why does the NCAA being morally bankrupt mean that Louisville should be excused for cheating, and cheating in a particularly sleazy way?

    (that question is directed toward Louisville and not you, CBB)

    Because the NCAA lets some sleazy cheaters skate, but not others?

    i feel bad for the players, but their argument suxx. They played for a morally bankrupt institution, some of them probably enjoyed the benefit(s) that were deemed against the rules. In fact, no, i don't feel bad for the players.

    Feels almost impossible for UNC-CHeat to NOT come up in this lawsuit.

    I think the stripping of titles is a pointless exercise. The team and its fans got to experience the incredible high of winning a national title. Yes, bragging rights and banners are great, but the bulk of the benefit is received at the time of the wins, and you can't take away those memories.

    Obviously it matters to those involved, or they wouldn't sue to get it back.

    Nothing incites bodily violence quicker than a Duke fan turning in your direction and saying 'scoreboard.'

    Yes, everything surrounding that program simply exudes class.
