Rapper T-Pain once said the famous words “I’m in love with a stripper”. Then somewhere down the line Louisville coaches Andre McGee and Rick Pitino repeated those same words inside the now infamous Minardi Hall.
Today we celebrate the birth of a legend, the one we call Katina Powell. The self proclaimed madam and now famous author who sent the University of Louisville into a downwards spiral.
Now it was during the Fall of 2015 when these escort allegations first broke, when it was alleged that Andre McGee had paid a reported $10,000 for 22 shows in between 2010 to 2014. These parties and shows were intended for recruits in hopes of getting them to commit and come to the university to play basketball. During that time span Louisville appeared in two Final Fours and won the 2013 National Championship. (Which will now prolly be vacated by the NCAA)
Katina claimed that she initially tried to call the NCAA on two separate occasions, but they hung up both times. So she eventually called an Indianapolis publisher and worked with them in a tell all memoir called “Breaking Cardinal Rules”. A memoir in which she exposed Andre McGee, Rick Pitino, and the University of Louisville.
So from the bottom of my Big Blue Nation heart I would just like to say “Happy Birthday Katina”. I hope you have a wonderful day.
