I am tired of dirty teams vacating wins instead of taking losses.  The result of the NCAA  Championship game should be a Michigan victory and a Louisville forfeit.  Michigan should be the champion.  But the NCAA will never be that fair or that intelligent.  

As for Sparty, this situation has nothing to do with them.  There's a difference between "customizing other teams" and giving the correct team the National Championship for that year.  If Sparty was in this situation, they would claim tne NC without waiting.  The NCAA should award it to the team that didn't cheat to get there.

That loss will always sting, and this whole situation just reopens the wound from the scar. John Beilein should be a candidate for a modern saint, by all accounts, and that year's group of players was so talented. likeable, cohesive, and fun to watch. I was entirely positive that it was Michigan's year, and when Spike went on his unstoppable run, I thought that it was all but assured.

I will always be especially proud of, and love that Michigan team just a little bit more, and it's a shame to have lost it to a program that's run the way Louisville is, and to a human being like Pitino. In any event, I'm sure that Beilein will get his eventually, at least.

If Luke Hancock would have just missed that first 3-pointer he took off the time out, I feel we would have won the National Championship.  He got on a roll from there.

We were ready to blow it open, but that shot checked our run.

Had he missed and we made our next shot, Louisville would have lost patience and gotten away from their game.

Why do people always point to that "foul" and not mention that Luke Hancock should have been on the bench instead of going off from 3 if the refs would have simply assigned a foul correctly. That had a much bigger impact on the game and it wasn't a judgement call. It was a without doubt a terrible and completely avoidable mistake that had a giant impact on the game.

If they get away with just a one year ban and vacating wins, they are lucky.


This is all Louisville will get :(

A self-imposed postseason ban is not enough punishment. I read that filthy book and I'm convinced Pitino is "Coach Mike," who arranged the "dates" after McGee left Louisville.

I think this is a really big deal. If the NCAA can come up with evidence of all the testimony thrown out there, I think the NCAA might actually lay it on them vs. just giving them a slap on the wrist and accepting this one year ban.

I'm usually skeptical of the NCAA and their discpline tactics, but I see this being viewed a lot closer to the Penn State discipline factors than your standard "money tactics" discipline. This could actually get interesting.

strippers for minors there bball program should be shut down completely to put a stop to it from other (southern) schools who probably do the same.
