This quote from Rick Pitino earlier this summer is going viral now.

The University of Louisville appears to have been named in the Department of Justice's investigation into an alleged corruption scandal in college basketball.

While the Cardinals aren't officially named, they're the only school that seems to meet the description for "University 6."

Here's the description:

The school appearing to be Louisville is alleged to have received a commitment from a five-star prospect after said prospect received $100K from an apparel company.

This was Rick Pitino's quote about the prospect shortly after he received his commitment. It's telling.

"Lucky."
