    I'm not sure what the players have to gain from it. Even in their best case scenario where a court finds in their favor it's not going to be much more than another harmless PR hit for the NCAA. And it wouldn't do much to change the public perception.

    pretty much. Stripping a title and vacating wins are a pretty toothless punishment, anyway, when you think about it. Restoring the title wouldn't really have any tangible effect, that I can see.

    And Texas A&M if I remember right. The only people that care are you and your fans, so just say you won and that's it.

    Yeah. If I could remember stuff like who won the 2013 national championship then I would still look at Louisville as the national champion. The NCAA vacating wins and titles means absolutely nothing to me.

    I guess I can see it from Luke Hancock's perspective. I didn't realize that he was stripped of his Final Four Most Outstanding Player award, too. His Wiki profile says he is currently a financial adviser (imagine that!) in the Louisville area, but he serves on the Board of Directors for an organization that sponsors basketball camps and clinics for kids on the autism spectrum. I'm sure the NCAA decision actually tarnished his credibility to a certain degree in that community.

    Sure, but I'm not sure how a court can legally force an organization to re-issue an award that they give out. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure it sucks for him, if he didn't do anything wrong, but it's not really the legal system's job to decide the basis upon which a non-profit is allowed to rescind its awards.

    For, example, if the United Way gave my workplace an award for "Donor of the Year" because we raised the most money in the community, and then later found out that a certain percentage of the people who donated for us got the money illicitly, it would be well within their rights to withdraw the award. Should those of us who donated correctly be able to sue the United Way and force them to give us back the award?

    Seems like they're going after the wrong people. Sue Rick Pitino. He's the one who ultimately ****** you.

    Kinda like the way the TOE thinks they're the better school. If you say it enough times your own lemmings start to believe it.

    Maybe I should sue the NCAA since I had to sit through Walden's years after the NCAA punished ISU for Criner's actions. ISU couldn't even recruit a full complement of scholarship players to compete. I didn't do anything wrong!

    You might have a constitutional argument. Sitting through those games classified as cruel punishment for the fans.

    Kind of like having an affair, paying someone to be quiet about it, and then declaring nothing ever happened. ;)
