But she figured that whenever it did take off, the leading edge of the scandal was likely to be the University of Louisville. (Put Louisville in my search engine.) The only real competition for Louisville would be the University of Miami, but, post-Nevin Shapiro, UM is lying low.

What other American university features a trustee who tried to resign but was forced to stay on the board by the governor of the state?

[Steve] Wilson, who is co-founder and CEO of 21c Museum Hotels LLC, said he has been unhappy with the effectiveness of the U of L board and had offered his resignation to Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear, who declined to accept it.

    charlie: Hadn’t thought of that. Supreme example of Coacha Inconsolata.

    John R: That’s the thing that for a moment made me think the whole story was made up by John Kennedy Toole.

  5. Mondo Says:

    Crass, I know, but I think my favorite quote about this comes from Pitino: “I don’t think any recruits came because of these women.”

    Look, if you’re paying

    Mondo: One of many Louisville quotations destined for greatness.
