UofL 68 Page NCAA Appeal Made Public

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (LEX 18) -- The University of Louisville has made the contents of its 68-page appeal to the NCAA public after an open records request. 

The school submitted the appeal to the NCAA's Infractions Committee on August 9. While the University acknowledged Andre McGee's conduct and affiliation with an escort, Katina Powell, it stated they had cooperated fully and had no idea of the events as they happened.

The document details the parties in which Powell provided dancers for potential recruits. Several prospects claim that McGee pressured them into having sex with the girls. Powell documented the parties in her controversial memoir "Breaking Cardinal Rules."

 When the university finally received a tip notifying it of McGee’s conduct, they report that they reacted with “disgust, horror and embarrassment.”

UofL imposed a post-season ban once they learned and self-reported, but the NCAA issued more penalties earlier this year. The university referred to the punishments as "draconian."

"In addition to punishing the institution for this conduct, it found that the student-athletes—the very same “minors” whom the COI rightly thought McGee had taken advantage of—were rendered ineligible by McGee’s actions, and that every one of their victories should be vacated and every dollar received from NCAA tournament games in which they participated should be disgorged. That cannot be right," read the documents.

The 65-page appeal concluded with a short declaration that the Committee On Infractions' "vacation and financial penalties should be reversed. At a minimum, the vacation and financial penalties imposed in connection with the 2011-12 and 2012-13 men's basketball season should be reversed."

The Committee of Infractions will have a little over three months to make a decision.
