    The local ‘sportsversity’ is a total and complete joke. It’s leadership is tone deaf and simply doesn’t comprehend that it is NOT a private business whose financial ‘goings-on’ are private. It is a public ‘sportsversity’ and cannot HIDE audits that are undertaken EITHER by the ‘sportsversity’ itself or by its foundation (which has also been ruled to be a public entity by none other than the Kentucky Supreme Court.). The ENTIRE TOP TIER of this ‘sportsversity’ needs to be removed, retired WITHOUT a payoff to ‘shut them up.’

    “The Big House of Financial Miscues”

    Once again, UofL is proving, through its incompetent honchos, that it cannot properly handle financial management. It is good to see a few members of the Board of Cadavers rise from the dead on this matter, but the whole place really needs to be investigated by Commonwealth authorities. Such an inquiry is long overdue. KY citizens should stand for no less if they are still expected to foot the bill for what is going on there (or not going on in terms of due diligence).

    Novena: The lack of principles and the unmitigated ignoring of the academic mission is EVEN displayed by the sports section of the ‘sportsversity.’ A basketball coach embarasses the sportsversity by cavorting after hours in a restaurant (on a table) with a middle-aged woman, they rehire a football coach whose checkered past is a candidate for a Kroger’s newsstand — who proceeds to bring (up to this point) a half dozen or more players from other Universities who have been dismissed for unstated reasons and the punishment for a freshman player for possessing a bunch of ‘merryjuana’ in his room complete with a ‘weighing scale’ is a ‘wink and a nod’ — but nobody is concerned because the place is lost ‘in space.’ Utterly beyond comprehension.

    “Misplaced Cultural & Institutional Values”

    Yes, indeed, Highlander, we are on the same page again. The UofL has created a gigantic cesspool by prioritizing athletics to its zenith and allowing academics to go by the wayside. It even treats its coaches like rock stars–even knowing what some have done to soil up the gutter. If the Cards lose to UK, it’s like death. If the honchos there mess up the academics, it’s an afterthought. God help the inhabitants at Belknap who want to teach and learn.

    Everytime I drive 65S and pass the billboard of clueless Jimbo Ramsey smiling, thanking people for the fundraising, I have to wonder: how much of that money will be used to pay off people?
