FILE - In this April 10, 2013, file photo, Louisville men's basketball coach Rick Pitino speaks to fans during a celebration in Louisville, Ky. Louisville says the NCAA "abused" its authority when it disciplined the school for a sex scandal that could result in the loss of its 2013 national basketball championship. The school also says in a 68-page appeal released Friday, Aug. 11, 2017, that the governing body imposed "draconian" penalties and ignored the school's self-imposed discipline. Louisville banned itself from the 2016 postseason after its investigation uncovered violations. The Hall of Fame coach called the NCAA penalties "unjust and over the top in its severity" when they were announced on June 15. (AP Photo/Timothy D. Easley, File)
