Louisville professor thinks Kentucky is corrupting college basketball

New, comments

A Louisville professor wrote a letter to the editor at the Courier-Journal suggesting the NCAA should reject Kentucky's style of play after the Wildcats "smothered" Louisville on Saturday, "not randomly, but totally."

Here's the crux argument from Michael Cassaro, an emeritus professor at Louisville:

My belief is that Kentucky’s coach has planned, through recruitment and coaching tactics, to build a program that smothers and bullies opponents rather than play basketball the way it should be played.

Inevitably, this corruption of college basketball will doom the sport at the college level.

The professor also says this was the first time he had seen Kentucky play this season. Good thing he didn't watch what they did to UCLA or Kansas.
