Louisville Now Says President Dr. James Ramsey Made Decision to Ban Postseason

The University of Louisville has publicly issued a statement to clear the air on who actually made the decision to self-impose a postseason ban for the men's basketball.

When the new first came out about the ban, head coach Rick Pitino suggested that AD Tom Jurich made the decision.

The school now says that President James Ramsey actually made the decision.

Here is an excerpt:

"The decision was made by Dr. Ramsey after consultation with Tom Jurich," the school's interim director of media relations, John Karman, told WAVE 3 News. "(Jurich) agreed to the decision."

When UofL announced the postseason ban on Feb. 5, the public outcry was directed almost exclusively at Ramsey, who recently has endured multiple controversies other than the sex-for-cash claims involving the basketball program.

But shortly after, basketball coach Rick Pitino said publicly that it was Jurich who ruled to ban the Cards from postseason action, seemingly to take some heat off of Ramsey.
