Pitino on Jones: It's not for me to comment... He's no longer on our team... I wish him the best in the game of life... Like Chane Behanan.
Hey I'll tell ya, Louisville raises their players right. Just take a look at Chane Behanan, Kevin Ware, and Chris Jones...
Did this guy just call in and say Chane Behanan was POY over AD?
lmao ask who they lost to in the tourney bring up Peyton Siva... no? Ok Let's CHANE the subject to Behanan.. nope nothing 😔😒😓
Chane behanan and Chris Jones hanging out tonight
If you took Rakeem Buckles, Kevin Ware, Angel Nunez, Chane Behanan and Chris Jones and put them on a team, they'd beat the Cards by 30 pts.
Thought Chane Behanan did that. But some people cling to negative perceptions because they suit their agenda.
There's still a chance he could get Chane Behanan'd back onto the team.
Chris Jones just did his best Chane Behanan impersonation!! He just decided to kill the season huh! Very disappointing
he's made some bad choices regarding suspensions but he's only had problems with Chane Behanan and Chris Jones.
Chris Jones should join Chane Behanan and create a dynasty
Rick Pitino's dealing with Chris Jones, Kevin Ware, Chane Behanan, etc. is prove of what a "drama queen" that he has become in recent years.
it says a lot that he's "quit" on so many recently- Kevin Ware, Chane Behanan, now Jones? Seems like a trend
“So as far as I'm concerned *** like Chris Jones and chane behanan made they own beds!!!”
Jones dismissed from team after being reinstated, Behanan all over again.
Just wanna give a shout out to Chris Jones for ruining any hopes we had of getting close to a championship. Chane behanan all over again
classic Ricky three stacks, use a player to win a MUST WIN game then let him go. Did the same to chane behanan
Chane Behanan failed a drug test a few days before UK last year...played vs UK...then got booted
So Louisville has kicked Chane Jones off the hoops team. Or was it Chris Behanan? Either way, not good.
Louisville always gotta player they're dismissing from the program; just two years ago Chane Behanan was in the same shoes Chris Jones in.
Chris Jones is the new Chane behanan
At least we lost Chane Behanan before conference play. Time to rally around this and play tough! I believe in Pitino
I'm guessing Chane Behanan has been giving Chris Jones some pointers
Chane Behanan and now Chris Jones. Louisville has a hard time keeping players out of trouble..another talent wasted
This feels like the chane behanan situation
Chane Behanan Do you think we could borrow a couple players?? You guys don't need them all!
Chane Behanan then Chris Jones dismissed from the Louisville team... What is going on?

Saw Chane Behanan on campus, crossed him so bad he won't play ball this season better yet for the rest of his life.

Dear WHAS, Melissa Swan, Terry Meiners, Sportscasters, Chane Behanan doesn’t have a drug problem he has a deficiency. It’s called clinical endo-cannabinoid deficiency (CECD). The medical community doesn’t fully understand the action of cannabinoids. The entire country is going through a paradigm shift because the war on drugs is based on misguided assumptions. Please don’t allow preconceived notions to cloud your thinking. If you have a cannabinoid deficiency then your brain is “a quart low” on cannabinoids. Children that were fed formula instead of human breast milk are more likely to develop the deficiency. Human breast milk has endo-cannabinoids, formula doesn’t. There are numerous studies that confirm the health benefits of natural breast-feeding. The medical community made a huge mistake when they suggested that formula was an acceptable alternative to natural human breast milk. When people that have the deficiency try cannabis, it makes them feel better, a lot better. People ...

What a month for Louisville.Ware's comeback takes a bad turn, Chane Behanan is kicked off the team and checks into rehab, Teddy Bridgewater turns pro a year early, Charlie Strong leaves for Texas and it appears our best option to replace him is a guy who dropped us like hot potato, left a note for his players in Atlanta after GIVING UP on them less than 1/2 way thru the season and threw away a good job to take a motorcycle ride with his mistress. How did the year of the Cardinal turn into the month of misery??

Will kyle wiltjer and chane behanan be teammates at Gonzaga?
I am deeply saddened to hear Chane Behanan has been dismissed from the UofL basketball program and that coach Rick Pitino is so unforgiving. Losing Behanan greatly weakens UofL's front line because he brought skill and experience to the team. He's talking about John Lucas' rehab program which should have occurred at UofL if Coach Pitino really cared. Hopefully Behanan will get it together find himself in an program that will help him. Between or outside the lines no one is perfect. Coach Pitino should have gotten help for Behanan IF he really cared about him. The very same thing could happen to another player! Where's the mentoring program for the UofL basketball program?
Through all the talking trash, I hope Chane Behanan gets the help and recover.

Chane Behanan tells ESPN that he will go in to John Lucas' rehab program.
Ready for something shocking? So, I read an article about the recent departure of Chane Behanan from the Louisville program. The ESPN piece talked about how he is seeking help for whatever undisclosed problem had him removed from UofL, and quotes his apologies to the team, coaches, school, and fans. "I'm still young and still learning..." Is a quote that really jumps out because sometimes we forget how young college athletes are, and how easy it is in their positions to make the wrong decision. I wish Chane all the best in his future endeavors, and hope he comes away from this a better person, because in the end mistakes are only mistakes if you don't learn anything...
Just read Chane Behanan is entering the John Lucas rehabilatation program. I wish the young man best of luck in dealing with his issues. Alcoholism and other drugs affect more lives than many of us realize. The younger one can seek recovery means the sooner he/she can stop hurting themselves and the ones who love them.
ZagsBlog.com reported Thursday that Northwestern "reached out" to Louisville transfer Chane Behanan — a move likely more symbolic than it is important.
Just seen where Chane Behanan has checked himself into a drug and alcohol facility. All the UK and UofL trash talking and bragging rights are just part of our great love of basketball and fun all of us have around this rivalry. But this is a young man's life we are talking about and it's important for him to get started on the right path and I am glad he has made this choice and I wish him the best. Good Luck Chane.
I obvioulsy don't like Louisville, but I loved the hustle Chane Behanan diplayed for them and hope he can get things turned around.

Watching Louisville without Chane Behanan, I really like our chances against them, especially at home.
Since Louisville suspended Chane Behanan, does this mean his Final Four ring, that was supposedly a fake, only later to be confirmed real, and then later was reported stolen from his grandmothers house, that he let borrow to keep there, because she needed a paper weight, and Santa Claus wanted to see it when he stopped in for milk and cookies...blah, blah, blah... Anyways, does this mean it's up for Auction again?
"There is nothing in which people more betray their character than in what they laugh at." I can't help but think of this quote when I repeatedly see adults relish in the demise of Chane Behanan.

What a sad day for a young man that had so much potential but chose to blow his chance to become a quality ball player. Chane Behanan was given numerous times to correct his behavior. I hope that all will read what Pitino said about Chane. " I am more concerned about Chane the man then Chane the ball player. If I can help in any way I will continue to mentor him so that he can become a better man. I will also try and get him in another college." Nice man Pitino is who shows great compassion.
I sure hate it that the Louisville Cardinals had to cut Chane Behanan loose and probably red shirt Kevin Ware it's going to be a tough rest of the season but that's how it goes!
ESPN Video: Andy Katz discusses how the Louisville Cardinals' lineup will be affected following the dismissal of Chane Behanan, and Kevin Ware's potential decision to redshirt in order to recover from his leg injury.
You have to think that if Chane Behanan had led UofL to victory in Rupp Arena, he woulda probably got another reprieve.
Still can't believe how Chane Behanan could be so immature and stupid to throw away a future NBA career to smoke weed, chase puand do drugs instead of working hard to become a millionaire NBA player, some people are just plain stupid. Now he has plenty of time to party, chase pu$$y and smoke all the weed he wants, just no NBA career.
Ok chatted with a few folks... Maybe just maybe the Chane Behanan decision wasn't a Rick Pitino decision at all. Maybe it was a Set of rules set by the university that were agreed upon as broken and the decision wasn't Ricks. And maybe Chane understood and accepted his punishment when called to the carpet by someone at the University. Maybe this is a kid that made bad decisions and is taking responsibility for his actions... Maybe it's a coach that didn't want to discuss it and hurt a player... Maybe it was an athletic director that was protecting his entire program and at the same time indirectly long term protecting the player by teaching a life lesson... Just a thought.
O.K. face book friends, I have a question. When Kentucky played Louisville, Chane Behanan dressed and played in the game. The next morning he was kicked off the team, for breaking team rules. I assume these rules were broken prior to the Kentucky game, if so, what does this say about the University of Louisville's athletic department? Did they get together and say this game with Kentucky mean's so much that we will let this young man play, and when the game is over we will kick him off the team, I don't know. I believe questions should be asked here. I, as an individual, would consider the person or person's just as guilty as Chane Behanan, if this was allowed to happen. Maybe after the game on the way home on the bus he did something to get kicked off the team, Does anyone have any clue's as to why drastic action was taken toward's this young man after Kentucky's game? I know I'm not the only person in the State that has this question. Everybody's lip's are sealed in Louisville. I am just curious.

Junior Forward Chane Behanan, who has been a starter for Rick Pitino virtually since he arrived on campus, was dismissed for violation of team rules on Sunday, a day after the Cards fell to the rival Cats of Kentucky. Behanan was averaging over 6 & 6 this year.
Well let's see if UK gets blamed for U of L's Chane Behanan being dismissed from the university. We Big Blue fans know how y'all like to pass the blame.

I am a UL hater and will never deny it... But my thoughts as a parent are very mixed on chane behanan... My heart breaks for a kid with lots of potential but for his/ her demons just can't seem to rise to their potential... My prayers and good thoughts go out to him
OK lf righteous UK fans that have fun talking about the downfall of Chane Behanan and passing judgment on the UL program in general 1 UK has the best cover up network this side of the Mississippi and north of Florida (Face it a player could murder someone in Texas and rape someone in Florida) 2 Your trouble cases only last a semester on campus like Cousins, Bledsoe Wall (any connection to the Talbert family just means gangs) and Jones 3 Oh how we forget Shawn Kemp, Eric Manuel , Calloway and Michael Porter 4 You criticize Rick Pitino but remember he was your demi god first plus Sutton and Gileaspe where such boozers they had to be chauffeured No program is 100% clean, coaches and administrations take chances on KIDS for profit. Things happen , coaches deal with it, some kids need to be handed the hard road sometimes and can't handle the rock star life like we hold basketball players in this state Like any kid He deserved a chance to play and probably a second and third but if he refused to learn then ...
I remember personally standing outside of the UofL Basketball team's bus after they lost to a great UK team in the Final Four two years ago. As we cheered on the team getting off the bus, Pitino stood in the bus with his hands on a visibly upset Chane Behanan and spoke with him for what had to be 10 minutes. I have no clue what he said but I'm sure it was an inspirational talk and showed me that Pitino thought a lot about Chane. I'm sure Rick did do everything he could to keep this kid around as he and everyone who knew the kid seemed to truly love him. It's a shame he is no longer on the team, wish him the very best, but on the same token you have to learn from your mistakes and mature as you grow and Chane seemed unable to do that currently. What bothers me though is what I see on social media, grown *** people using the word Hate like it's nothing, calling a kid all types of names and throwing rumors around with not a *** bit of knowledge of what happens in these kids lives. A lot of stones get ...

Top Ten Musings for the Holiday and New Years 1. Overheard this wise quote about post-holiday dieting: "I was gonna eat, but then I decided to make a healthier choice. So I just smoked a cigarette instead." Does this work? 2. As we were getting ready to play a board game called "Loaded Questions," my Mamaw asks "is this the game that Kevin kept writing all those dirty words trying to get me to say them?" No, of course not Mamaw. You are just old and senile, I would never do that... 3. The Russell Athletic Bowl was a blast and UL killed Miami. What made it even better is that the beer guys were selling 24 oz. cans. It was like having your own 7-Eleven delivery service. Then, the beer guys blew my mind. A 25 oz can... For the same price. Did 8-minute abs just lose its business to 7-minute abs??? I think so!!! 4. New Years still disappoints me. One year, I paid someone to pick me up at one party circa 11:30pm and drive me around until 12:15am just so I could avoid the awkwardness of all the women t ...
Its funny how people are so quick to make negative judgement about Chane Behanan UofL and UK fans alike, really pathetic that you have nothing better to do with your time, when most of you probly have more skeletons in you closet than he does and for the Louisville "Fans" hating on him you realize without him playing like a man possessed in the 2nd half against Michigan we probly dont win our 3rd National Title. While the young man may not have been perfect off the court he sacrificed a lot to contribute to the University's success over the last year. Really hope he takes this as a wake up call gets the help he needs. So before you worry about somebody else's problems why dont you try fixing your own first.
Whatever the reason Chane Behanan was dismissed it is a sad day when a young person with all this potential for the makings of a good player, and more importantly a successful person, fails. He apparently has some deep issues that need attention. I hope he picks himself up and goes on to become a winner in life, not basketball , just life. And nothing but well wishes for Kevin Ware. I was afraid he had come back too soon, an injury like that takes a long long time to heal...Good Luck Kevin and thanks for the great games you were able to play and what fun it was to watch you sail through the air...hope to see it again someday.
CBB trade Rumors: Indiana has traded Luke Fischer to Louisville for the rights to Chane Behanan.
Well not the news I wanted to wake up to: Chane Behanan will no longer be with the team and Kevin Ware might be done for the year. That really hurts our Final Four chances. Hopefully someone will pick up the slack. On the other hand, my voice is completely back and starting to feel much better ;) Still going to take my meds until they are gone ;)
Oh great now Cards have lost Chane Behanan and Kevin Ware may redshirt!
Its a good thing I was just "being a hater" and "knew nothing" when I told you all chane Behanan loved that nose candy.
To me, it doesn't really matter if Chane Behanan is kicked off of Louisville or not. They weren't going to win the national title anyway. They're just simply too weak down low and too one dimensional. They're good in the backcourt...that's it. Of the two good teams that UL has played (North Carolina & Kentucky), they were utterly and thoroughly abused down low and in the paint. It wasn't even close. And if Smith or Jones have an off-night, it could be even worse for them. I still believe Louisville will make the NCAA tournament due to their weak schedule but let's not get this thing twisted. The Cardinals were not even FF material...let alone national championship material, with or without Behanan. I thought that was pretty evident.
As someone who has lost out on dreams due to poor choices involving drugs, I am empathetic to the feeling Chane Behanan will eventually have when he finally realizes what he has done. Until then, all I can say is good for Rick for not putting up with it anymore.

The last really talented player to mess up and get kicked out of Pitino’s program? Derrick Caracter
My thoughts on Chane Behanan’s dismissal from Louisville (with a funny story about Derrick Caracter):
Tisk tisk chane behanan got kicked off the team. Welp there goes louisville's hopes if doing anything this year or any other year
Chane Behanan had so much potential, he was an all american top 25 recruit and one of my favorite players:(
Chane Behanan gone and now Kevin Ware sitting out all year...lord have mercy!
I hope Chane Behanan gets it together for HIS future
Chane Behanan has to be one of the dumbest athletes alive today.
Lmao "I'm thirsty for Chane Behanan" Mom: *hands me water* "Here have some water or diet Pepsi. But don't be thirsty." 😂😂😂😂

After getting indefinitely suspended in October only to return a month later, Chane Behanan has now been dismissed from Louisville.

This guy scored more yesterday than Chane Behanan did.
So sad to see such a good guy like Chane Behanan get dismissed. He was such an awesome person and never did any wrong do…
Did UL fans blame the refs for Chane Behanan's dismissal as well?
It's been a weekend of conflicting emotions for me. Louisville won the Russel Athletic Bowl, but we lost against Kentucky in basketball. The Detroit Lions fired Jim Schwartz, but then Chane Behanan was dismissed from the team. In spite of all this, however, he did have a real great time with Martha Crabtree Basham, Donnie Basham, Beth Basham, Lindsey Basham and the rest of the Basham/Crabtree clan, so he'll just mark this as a net win.

Chane Behanan kicked off the team. Louisville fans blame the refs.
With all of this talk about Chane Behanan, let's not forget about the time Terrence Jones stomped on a homeless man
Eight schools have already called on Chane Behanan, sources tell
I am sure the only reason Rick Pitino kept Chane Behanan around this long, is because he THOUGHT he could beat Kentucky with him.WRONG.
I absolutely love Louisville basketball, but I don't feel bad for Chane Behanan. He's a moron. Choosing weed over a basketball career? Seems silly to me.
What a crying shame...morbidly sick to my stomach after hearing the news about the young man Chane Behanan. Although the UK folks were much more inferior over the lesser talented Behanan I feel he was just an honest harding working young man with unbelievable character. I think the rotten egg is Mr. Pintino, having those inappropriate relations. Richard needs to get a holt of his well being!!
First Chane Behanan gets kicked off UofL and now Luke Fischer is leaving IU:( :( it's just not a good day:(
Sad to see Chane Behanan go down off of Marijuana! This should be a sign to all student athletes across the country.
I may be die hard UK fan but want to wish Chane Behanan the very best, so much god given talent, praying he gets his life on the right track
Chane Behanan done/out/dismissed from UL due to numerous/repeated university violations..looks like the cards just got even smaller...ouch!
"There are a lot of good people out there that make mistakes." -Pitino It happens people; sometimes situations are more than one can bare. Everybody has their own way of relieving stress and dealing with situations that causes problems, Chane Behanan shouldn't be judged. Okay, yes he was in the wrong because he was given an opportunity(s) to make what could have been a great experience work for him. Good education, great basketball program etc. But unless you've lived his life, and know what he goes through each and every day he wakes up... no one should have the right to judge him or look at him any differently! JUST MY OPINION.. And that's all there is too it. Praying for him!!
DAM chane behanan got put of of LOUISVILLE we needed him a lul bit DAM
Big loss for UofL Basketball. Even bigger loss for Chane Behanan.

Bad news Cards fans... Good news everyone else, Chane Behanan was kick of the team :(
Chane Behanan dismissed from UL Basketball Team. Now Slicky Ricky can move from blaming the officials for Saturday's loss to UK to blaming Behanan's distraction. Apparently multiple issues. Really bad news for Behanan.
Chane Behanan gone for good this time!!

Thanks chane behanan, u just really screwed louisville by getting kicked off the team
Biggest UL bust.. Chane behanan or Derrick character??
Long live Chane Behanan well sort of
Chane Behanan kicked off the Louisville basketball team... I find it hilarious. You want to continue to recruit these types of players Rick, you will continue to get these kinds of results.
Good Afternoon Big Blue Nation. If things can't get any more Worse For Louisville! In fact it may be just the Beginning! Kevin Ware will be A Redshirt For the Remainder of the Season he has Played in 9 games after 8-9 months suffering a Broken Leg in the NCAA Tournament. Chane Behanan Has Been Dismissed from the team. He was Recently suspended in October just to come back A month later. The Reason was for violating University policy.
Another bad decision by the UofL program to dismiss Chane Behanan. No specifics were given regarding this situation but the coach is just as responsible as the player for any policy violation. Coach Pitino is probably looking towards next season when he has several quality big men coming in. No matter how BAD the coach thought Behanan was he deserved the opportunity to be rehabilitated through a mentor program. Coach Pitino had a chance to likely make a difference in a young man's life and chose not to. Next year isn't here yet! Chane Behanan isn't the only young man in the UofL basketball system having problems. There are others! Coach Pitino needs to remember the Behanan of last year. This present team is guard "heavy". with no quality big men like last year. Pitino needs to give Behanan another chance!
L1C4 4 LYFE! We will miss you Chane Behanan god got ur back man... we all make mistakes its what we do after those mistakes are made... ur young u got ur whole life ahead of u... keep progressing and stay strong u will always be a cardinal
Breaking News: "Out of Louisville, Ky Chane Behanan Forward from Louisville has been dismissed from team according to reports. More info to follow. Stay tuned.
So Chane Behanan is Done for good this time. Is this really going to hold up and be true? I feel like Pitino has had enough of his attitude Problems. Behanan Looked like he could care less in Saturdays game. He can Go play for Pitino Junior now lol..
Food for Thought... If Chane Behanan goes into BEASTMODE in the 2nd half v UK & leads them to a WIN over the CATS Saturday. Is he dismissed from the team or is his latest transgression overlooked??
Chane Behanan gone from Loserville. Rick used him then abused him. If he had helped beat UK instead of flopping he would still be a Red Bird.
Im a Louisville Fan but why cant Chane Behanan stay out of trouble. WOW!!!
Chane Behanan dismissed from Louisville.for a minute.again
Ok, I've lost my patience already. Chane Behanan was a major part of a national championship team. Yes, he made a mistake, but UL fans should be grateful for his contributions to an accomplishment that may not happen again in our lifetime. Nobody knows what he's going through, and no person is in a position to judge him. What's done is done, I hope he finds his way in the rest of his life. Again, thank you Chane, best wishes in the years to come.
