seeing how I don't follow UofL that closely my question is what makes you think he is having a miserable time at Louisville
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

"As it stands, Louisville has no scholarship signees in the 2018 class, and no 2019 commitments. The Cards have lost numerous key contributors, including the exhausted eligibility of point guard Quentin Snider, and the decisions by Deng Adel and Ray Spalding to enter the NBA Draft. As such, the Cards are staring at a glaring lack of depth and personnel heading into the 2018-19 season."

The reality is until Louisville hears their fate, why would anyone go there. All the coaches are telling kids the same thing and that Louisville has the darkest cloud over them. Louisville needs the punishments to be served so they can move on. I am confident that once the punishment is handed down, and they are eligible for post season, they will be fine. I hope this drags on for years to come

Never heard the term. Schadenfreude: Def in Cambridge Dictionary / a feeling of pleasure or satisfaction when something bad happens to someone else. Of course wise XU grads knew this. I will keep this term in my vocabulary. I thought maybe it had something to do with money can't buy happiness as in Macks huge pay increase. Maybe they can start a Schadenfreude Tourney for those who don't make the NCAA or NIT. :geek:

"Schadenfreude" is one of a large number of German words with unique meanings (i.e., cannot be translated into a single word. Examples:

Zeitgeist (this is a great word)
Zugzwang
Ersatz
Freudentränen
Frühlingsgefühle

It seems that they should have a word that translates to : Money can't buy happiness.

actually Gary and I used it a number of times in the early days of board...seems to pop up when head coaches leave or when Gary and I had our political discussions.

Ah Gary - and you. I miss your political discussions (I side with you) and certainly Gary is missed. He would have a field day with Mack’s departure.
