I hate to be Donny Downer but again, I’m not sure that’s a great article for the University ofLouisville. It sounds like you had become dependent on a shoe company to grow your university. It’s great as long as everything is going along swimmingly, but they now own you and that is not a good formula.

Please explain. What sounds are you hearing? Where in the article do you place that thought on?

Not Yinzer...but, when you have Adidas Reps and coaches allegedly involved in paying players that sounds like collusion. The question is how deep did it go at Louisville? How deep does it go at any Power Program? No one is immune including every ACC school.

Mark, we are keeping the deal. In fact, begging to keep it by the new interim AD/BoT/President. It was a public/private partnership. Remove Adidas and substitute any other Company and this deal is innovative and phenomenal. But alas, just like Stallings screaming “we don’t pay our players $100,000”, misdirected condemnations.
If you understand my last sentence, you understand my frustration and angry posts.

Louisville will eventually dig itself out of the problems it faces now. It will be a stronger school as a result. Remember that the athletic department is only a small, although highly visible, part of any university. The more important questions for Louisville concern student applications, alumni contributions, government support and contracts/grants. That's where a university lives and dies.

Stallings is an absolute loser to make those comments, and it is more than unfortunate to have him represent Pitt. But the University of Louisville has an absolutely embarrassing athletics history and is currently a total mess of an institution. Hopefully it will right itself quickly and it seems to be heading in that direction.

The Adidas deal I'm sure will include some nice collaborations, not unlike partnerships between other corporations at various universities, but on its own it is not going to elevate your school as an academic or research institution. It is only one small piece of what has to be a much larger puzzle. It is only innovative in that your partner in this case is a apparel/shoe company which usually doesn't participate in these types of collaborations (as opposed to engineering or pharma or software, etc). When Adidas starts endowing professorships and research funds, then you'll know it is something truly different and phenomenal.
