After 11 hours in front of the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions, U of L’s Thursday hearing in Cincinnati finally wrapped up a little after 7 p.m. (ET).

While Louisville administrators were not allowed answer questions from the media following the hearing, U of L interim president Dr. Greg Postel did issue the following statement:

"We anticipated and received a full and fair review of the facts in the case today by the Committee on Infractions. We had the opportunity to present the information as we wished. It is anticipated that the Committee on Infractions will inform the institution on the specific findings and penalties in approximately six to eight weeks. We look forward to the final resolution of this matter."

U of L athletic director Tom Jurich also spoke briefly with the reporters in Cincinnati following the hearing.

Even with Jurich saying that they expect the NCAA’s ruling in “6-8 weeks,” there’s still the potential that Louisville could appeal any additional sanctions, which would prolong the ordeal just a bit longer.

This all can’t be over soon enough.
