 Don't feel bad for them in the least. My guess is Louisville isn't going to be the only team vacating victories once this scandal goes full bloom. There's a lot of unethical and probably illegal stuff that goes on behind the scenes in college sports. Time to clean it up as much as possible.

The whole "vacate" thing has always kinda made me laugh.  Regardless, those events happened.  Stripping schools of titles or wins doesn't really erase the experience of that moment.

Anyways, you hate to see bad things happen to good people like Rick Pitino.  Oh wait...

I still think of the Marcus Camby UMass team as a Final 4 team. I'm still amazed the John Calipari - who followed the Slick Rick game plan probably better than Pitino - actually got enough talent to U.Mass to make a Final 4. And they easily could have won it all that year.

I also hate it when they vacate games. If you are telling fans games didn't happen and taking money back from teams then you owe the fans back the money they spent on tickets and you owe the media back money from a game that didn't happen.

well he got Camby there.  no one else on that team made the pros.  Basketball, especially college, you only need 1 player.

This is what I was trying to remember. I was going to the URI games those years and remembered him being on Umass. However, he actually was not on their final 4 according to Wikipedia and left after the 94-95 season. I was very confused when I looked into this.

I made a lot of money on Louisville in that tournament vs Michigan and Duke, especially, and in the Big East tournament that year and in a couple of brackets pools.

Do I have to give that $$$$ back???.............

Just Kidding!!!

Padilla, Travieso, and Roe were legit college players. Camby was the best player in the country.

I think we're naive to think that the top programs are not pushing the envelope in regards to legal recruiting.

I personally am not a fan of Pitino, as I think he's a jerk that won't take responsibility for his actions. That being said, I wouldn't be surprised if similar actions were/are rampant throughout college athletics.

Yeah, Roe was gone.  He was a senior. His last game was when UMass lost to Bryant Reeves in the Elite 8 in '95.   (Which, might've actually what kept Camby in school one more year).  That was a tough loss.  That Umass team was no slouch, either.  People just kinda forget them because they made the Final Four the next year.

They were the scrappiest team ever in the years preceding Camby's arrival.  I can't imagine how annoying it must have been to play against them! REFUSE TO LOSE
