2017-18 LCPT Quarterfinals: NCAA Appeals Committee vs. Papa John

New, 53 comments

Let the games begin.

NCAA Infractions Appeals Committee

RAP SHEET:

—Looking to piggyback off the success of 2017 champion “The NCAA Committee on Infractions.”

—Denied Louisville’s appeal, officially making U of L the first D-I program to ever have to vacate a national championship.

—Based decision not on precedent, but on morality.

—Chose not to take Louisville’s cooperation and admission of guilt into consideration, while continuing to reward institutions who fight with the NCAA every step of the way.

vs.

PAPA JOHN SCHNATTER

RAP SHEET:

—Making an appearance in the tournament for a second straight year.

—Ripped Louisville athletics in a very public manner on multiple occasions. Was instrumental in the ouster of Tom Jurich. Referred to Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium as “my stadium.”

—Pulled $1.5 million from the athletic program without informing U of L athletics that the move was coming.

—Was forced to step down as chief executive of Papa John’s in December after receiving significant criticism for his comments about the NFL and the national anthem protests.

You’ve got 24 hours to send one on to the semis.
