  In his first round of being nominated for the Naismith college basketball Hall of Fame, Louisville head coach Rick Pitino will not be inducted. Pitino was informed yesterday that he missed the cut after being one of the 12 finalists. Reportedly Pitino was “disappointed” after thinking he had a pretty good chance of receiving the distinct honor. Pitino...Continue reading »

photo courtesy of 247 sports   Somewhat lost amidst all this basketball hoopla is the fact that Charlie Strong and the 2012 football Cardinals have been hard at work this week during Spring practice. And true to form, the entire UofL staff is still relentlessly working the recruiting trail. Today it paid off as the team received its 4th verbal commitment for the...Continue reading »

Getty Images   I think we’re all getting to the point in which we can’t possibly break down this game anymore. Almost everything that needs to be said has been said by now (almost everything, that is……keep an eye out for LSL’s unique game preview tomorrow).

I think it’s safe to say that a litany of college basketball analysts and writers would all resoundingly agree that, without a doubt, what’s going on at the University of Kentucky is certainly not good for the sport. That’s fairly obvious, actually. And it’s not that people have a problem with one and done’s, after all, every good program...Continue reading »

Last week I read no fewer than 3 columns from Detroit Free Press sports writer Drew Sharp, essentially saying Louisville had zero chance to beat Michigan State. There’s still video of him joining Eric Crawford and Rick Bozich on their webcast on the CJ’s website in which he expresses his less than enthusiastic views on the Cardinals. So, fast-forward 5 days...Continue reading »

  I still can’t believe it. I mean, I can to a certain degree once they started winning games back in New York in the Big East Tournament, but when you look back 5 weeks ago……no way. Yet here we are, under some almost unfathomable circumstances as Louisville repeats its 2005 run out of the west as a 4 seed and will once again head back to the Final...Continue reading »

Great Piece today from CBS’ Matt Norlander (frequent guest of LSL Radio) who breaks down the enigmatic relationship between Russ Smith and Rick Pitino. Say what you want about both (and people have certainly said plenty) but each has come through huge for this team down the stretch and we’re damn lucky to have them as part of our program. Pitino appears far...Continue reading »

Why do sports fans feel compelled to do superstitious things? Why is the final place you decide to watch the “big game” such an incredibly important factor in your team’s quest for ultimate glory? Well, I have no freaking clue, but I can promise you this much: they absolutely do matter. All the way down to the most finite detail, they matter. Sports fans...Continue reading »
