2017-18 LCPT Championship: NCAA Appeals Committee vs. Chuck Smrt

New, 45 comments

It all comes down to this.

For a third straight year, our least cool person is guaranteed to have something to do with the (original) basketball scandal.

Let’s get to it.

CHUCK SMRT

HOW HE GOT HERE:

—Defeated Lisa Mattingly 57%-43% in the quarterfinals.

—Defeated 0.9 Seconds 62%-38% in the semifinals

RAP SHEET:

—Got paid a significant amount of money to give U of L what now clearly appears to have been poor advice at every step of the way during the NCAA’s investigation into the program.

—Was the man responsible for recommending taking the postseason away from Trey Lewis and Damion Lee.

—Is missing a vowel in his last name.

vs.

NCAA INFRACTIONS APPEALS COMMITTEE

HOW THEY GOT HERE:

—Defeated Papa John Schnatter 62%-38% in the quarterfinals

—Defeated Mississippi State 75%-25% in the semifinals

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.

You’ve got 48 hours to crown our new champion.
