"Louisville hit with 4 NCAA violations, Pitino may face suspension: 4 things" -- Gary Parrish
"...Basically, the NCAA's case is centered around one low-level staffer whom it alleges provided $5,400 in impermissible benefits..."
Has this question been answered: where did this low level staffer (an assistant his first two years and then the director of basketball operations after that) get access to $5,400?"
Or this one: how could the rest of the Louisville coaching staff have no knowledge of women hired to induce prospects appearing on campus? Recruiting visits seem pretty regimented.
