"The NCAA charged the University of Louisville men's basketball program with four Level I violations - the highest level - including citing coach Rick Pitino for a failure to monitor an employee, the school revealed Thursday with its public release of the NCAA's notice of allegations.
"The allegations, which the NCAA sent after its 13-month-long investigation into U of L, did not include any charges for lack of institutional or head coach control of the program, two of the most severe NCAA violations.
"The notice only served to outline the NCAA's findings - no potential penalties are proposed."
Let's compare the two cases, Pitino vs ML, and see what happens. I bet Pitino stays.

i believe you are correct that he will stay. not saying i agree that he should
since the charge is "failure to supervise" it meens they haven't been able to prove that patino knew about what was going on (find this hard to believe). That is a big difference from being the person responsible for the charges being made.
also, i assume if they did terminate him it would be for cause, however he is owed $50 million... even if they reached a settlement you are talking about a large amount of money

If Lonergan was cheating on his wife by having sex with another woman in a restaurant bathroom, do you think he would have kept his job? There you go, another litmus test.

1) Bathroom? I thought he was nailing her over the dining room table. (So much more elegant and romantic)
2) I practiced criminal law for 4 years. The pimp always gets off.
I always have been partial to Little Ricky, ever since he beat Big John. But, he should be prosecuted criminally. I am sure this is the tip of the criminal enterprise ice berg.

I recall all the sex scenes, MV. A restaurant, post-closing hours. I even recall the red/white checked table cloth. (I hope it was Ricky, not me.)

I hope the NCAA sets itself up like the NFL. I don't think it's likely, but what would the NCAA do about a slap on the wrist if proscutors tried and convicted folks in this incident and people ended-up in the hoosegow. Amazing.
