Louisville player implicated in FBI probe now reportedly facing punishment

This is about to get ugly.

Louisville is likely going to be devastated by the FBI probe that named the school and implicated Rick Pitino in several cases of breaking the law. Athletic director Tom Jurich has been fired and now it seems that the five-star recruit involved in taking the money has been suspended as well according to interim AD Greg Postel.

Louisville was going to be a pretty good team this year, but that was with the inclusion of Bowen. Should he not play all season, then the Cardinals could see themselves take a step back in the ACC and that's before we even know what kind of other punishments the program might have to endure this season.
