    Link won’t go to anything for me but sounds kinda dumb. Nothing was physically taken away from them. Are they suing so that there won’t be an asterisk next to 2013 Louisville basketball in Sports Almanacs?

    Some of the players basically claiming that the NCAA slandered them, guilt by association.

    Ex-Louisville players take 'Goliath' of NCAA to court over 2013 title

    Luke Hancock said he can't go more than two days without somebody asking him if he had strippers in his college dormitory.


    To the former Louisville basketball star, those interactions are evidence of his sullied reputation, a lingering effect of an NCAA investigation and sanctions tied to the escort scandal at the University of Louisville.

    A lawsuit filed against the NCAA on Wednesday by five former University of Louisville men's basketball players is an attempt to redeem reputations.

    The five plaintiffs — former Louisville players Hancock, Gorgui Dieng, Stephan Van Treese, Tim Henderson and Michael Marra — are seeking "a declaration that they are completely innocent of any wrongdoing as implied by the NCAA," according to the lawsuit, which was filed in Jefferson Circuit Court.

    I've never understood why advertisers, alumni and fans don't sue the NCAA took millions of dollars from them for something the NCAA deems didn't happen. In every other business you get a refund.
