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.
I know y’all specialize in media Mark. Please instruct them well.

I'll give you innovative but it is also ripe for corruption. Fix that aspect and I'll give you phenomenal. I have no idea what that would take. I would have never expected Adidas to do what they allegedly did or Pitino to do what he allegedly did.

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.

Yep, maybe UofL and Adidas will form a mega-mega-million-dollar research partnership to develop the perfect athletic shoe -- one that improves academic achievement and graduation rates while preventing shin splints, marital infidelity, plantar fasciitis, hemorrhoids, institutional corruption, and concussions. You know, a "build a better mousetrap, and the world will beat a path to your door" kind of product. The clock is ticking...

My grandmother suffered from hemorrhoids before she died. If it could prevent that, I'd buy a pair for everyone in my family.

If you don’t think this was about the NBA and Jurich fighting for the University of Louisville and putting the Universities interest first I don’t know what to tell you. This was a power struggle. UofL lost. It’s about the YUM and the NBA. People just used The University as a means to get the YUM.
