NCAA barred Louisville men’s team from supporting women’s team

This final note today. In which the NCAA — the National Collegiate Athletic Association — reveals itself once again to be a bonehead.
Louisville, as you know, won the mens basketball championship in Atlanta last night. The school’s women play their final tonight in New Orleans. NCAA rules say neither Louisville coach Rick Pitino — who got a $425,000 bonus for the championship win — nor the school could pay for the men’s team to go see the Louisville women.
The NCAA did give a waiver this morning, which came too late, the school said.
