    I'm not so sure. I don't think their ship is sinking at all! This type usually triumphs. He alone has propelled Louisville to the P5. Their athletic programs seem to always succeed and they get away with whatever they need to. If he was at UConn five years back, UConn would be in the ACC and not Louisville and we all would be praising him. They are top level in the ACC and nationally in many sports and will eventually surpass all of the other ACC schools as the team to beat. They have money, fan support, and academics don't matter. How can they lose?

    Easy...the Yum Center deal he has UL situated with is a complete sham for the citizens of Louisville. That place was build with Redevelopment Agency Bonding and there is now way the bonds can be paid off before they default. When they get called and default..UL's deal allows them first right of refusal to purchase the Yum Center at pennies on the dollar. This has been called to light before, and his blustering has made things go away for the time being. Now there is now where else he can hide...hence his threat to build a place on campus. Jurich has painted himself into a corner and may have finally out smarted even himself.

    0.0% chance Louisville loses it.

    This would be a problem in CT. In Louisville, they'll let UL buy it for pennies on the dollar and keep forging ahead with a permanent advantage. Life isn't as complicated in the south. They'll value what UL brings to the city and how it fills up the Yum Center and overlook the public screw job that was perpetrated. Even if they negotiate something to appease critics, UL is still going to get a sweetheart deal.

    It's not an issue until UK is denied those same types of bonds to renovate Freedom Hall (happened)...then all of a sudden things aren't so rosy for Mr Tom Jurich and UL.
