Former Louisville QB, and current Rutgers QB, Kyle Bolin, spoke about the latest investigation plaguing Louisville. In particular, Bolin offered support for Athletic Director Tom Jurich.
On Wednesday, Bolin tweeted, “I have nothing but the utmost respect for Tom Jurich and the love he has for the student-athletes at the University of Louisville.”
The Louisville transfer offered heartfelt support for his former athletics director, Tom Jurich, who has been suspended amid a nationwide investigation by the FBI into basketball recruiting bribery.
After Saturday’s 56-0 loss to Ohio State, the QB was asked to elaborate on the tweet in the post game press conference.
“Tom Jurich, first off, is an outstanding man,” Bolin said. “Everything he did at the University of Louisville, I believe and many people believe, he did what was best for the players.”
Jurich, who is on paid administrative leave, has been widely regarded as the top Athletic Director in the country.
“He was very invested in the success of the players and of the University of Louisville, and he was always very kind to me during my transfer process,” Bolin said. “He called me into his office and told me that if I ever needed anything from him in terms of possibly getting in touch with a school or anything down the road, to reach out to him.”
Bolin went on, “Having a guy like him reach out to student-athletes, especially those who are looking to take the talent they have elsewhere, that tells you about the kind of person he is.”

Thursday night our University of Louisville Cardinals defeated the Scarlet Knights from Rutgers 24-10 in what will likely be the last meeting ever between the two schools. Say what you may about Rutgers and how bad of a football team they were 10 years ago but they really had stepped up to play the part of conference rival since we got into the Big East/AAC. Teddy Bridgewater went 21-31 for 310 yards and 2 TD while throwing a very rare INT, only his second of the season. Senorise Perry added to the offensive attack with 13 rushes for 104 yards and 1 TD with his longest rush for 42 yards. Louisville’s Defense come up huge with 8 sacks and forced Rutgers QB Gary Nova to be….Gary Nova as he threw 4 INT’s. Calvin Pryor III led the Defense with 14 total tackles. Below are some videos and pictures we got from the game, enjoy!
