So surely this has brought about institutional humiliation and contrition? Surely the fan base has finally had enough and is demanding drastic changes? Surely U of L has responded by taking responsibility and cleaning house?
One would think, but we’ve heard nothing of the sort. In fact, we’ve heard very little from the administration at all. Instead, we’ve heard Rick Pitino deflect the blame, defy the penalties and decry the NCAA (not just for their punishment, but apparently for giving Jimmy V cancer). Also, we’ve heard Louisville fans blindly justify and insanely rationalize.Not all UofL fans lack this shame, but the overall attitude reflects the leadership. Rev. Cunningham's outlook is bleak: "A culture without shame is like a body without pain receptors." [Herald-Leader]
