    I focus on the pain. The only thing that's real.

    Wait. Are you familiar with UL? They are barely a step above community commuter college. Hardly would call them an “institution of higher learning”.

    I think that was the "my ass" part. And I doubt if the average student gives a rats arse about the basketball team except for an excuse to party. As if they would not otherwise find a reason to.

    As if any of them are drinking good kentucky bourbon.

    All drinking that seltzer crap that is cluttering the aisles at the stores.

    But hey, that's a whole 'nuther rant.
    You can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning.

    I have been working in Louisville this week making sales calls all over town. The disdain for Chris Mack is palpable, and the majority of people I spoke to can't see him lasting past this season. This was a very unscientific poll of U of L fans. Without a president or AD, I am not sure how this will play out. Mack appeased his bosses by getting rid of assistants last season, but he has a roster made up of transfers that have not gelled. Argument can be made to give him time to get through this rough patch, but it will be a tough sell to the Louisville fanbase.

    Chris has brought in 19 players, including 6 with his first class. He has no excuses in my opinion. He doesn’t like recruiting and he is not a people person. He is probably in the wrong profession.

    The only thing that I could see getting Mack another year is the fact that it would seem to make sense to hire a President or and AD first. Especially if you have to pay Mack a boatload to go away and then (presumably) pay a new coach a bunch of money. I'm not sure what the status of those searches is.

    It’s in his contract that if there are any level 2 violations under his watch, he can be canned with cause and Louisville would owe zero. The Dino thing could do that…I think unlikely but I’m still trying to figure out how the ncaa decides who gets in trouble or not

    Or when they decide, right? Seems like Mack could reach retirement age before the NCAA renders a verdict on any of the stuff.
