(Photo – Chris O’Meara, AP)   For just the second time in school history, the Louisville Cardinals went on the road down in Tampa and defeated South Florida. Raymond James Stadium, despite always having a strong showing of UofL faithful, has typically not been a friendly place for our fans, players and coaches alike. But Saturday was a different story. This Louisville team came in focused and ready to make amends for the disappointing home loss to UCF the previous weekend, while South Florida continues to rebuild under a new...Continue reading »

(Photo – Al Messerschmidt / Getty Images)   Despite going on the road and putting the hammer on South Florida yesterday, the Louisville Cardinals dropped in both polls. In the updated AP poll (which, if we’re being honest, means nothing) they slipped to #20 and in the coaches poll (part of the BCS formula) they fell to #17. They did, however, move up one spot in the all-important BCS Rankings, from #20 to #19, and remain four spots ahead of Central Florida who crushed UConn yesterday on the road. At this point, all the Cards...Continue reading »

Photo – al.com Not that UofL fans needed more reasons to be thankful that the Cards are moving to the ACC, but when news came out yesterday that the American created another new bowl game – the Miami Beach Bowl – it hit home once again how big of a deal this departure to the ACC is.  This new bowl game that in a tweet from the American called it “a landmark day for the conference” is a great get for them, but it will be hard for the AAC team fans to get excited about playing a school from the MAC, C-USA, or the...Continue reading »

Photo – knoxnews.com Just last week, Coach Pitino sounded adamant that Chane Behanan’s earliest return – if he came back at all –  would be some time in mid-December.  Now it seems there is a shorter timetable as the coach of the Cardinals told the Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer’s Cole Clayborn that he has been doing “the right things” and that he should be back in a “short period of time.”  If Behanan can get his priorities straight, the Cards once again become a serious contender to...Continue reading »

There’s a wide variety mentioned in the magazine; everything from horse racing to his son Ryan starting a new job.  Also, he uses examples from his new book One Day Contract when discussing humility, social media, and how he sizes up potential recruits.  Perhaps the most interesting tidbit: Pitino invites recruits to view his practices as a sort...Continue reading »

A Mississippi man was indicted today after attempting to extort $3.5 million from UofL’s athletics department, alleging that Chane Behanan, Gorgui Dieng, and Russ Smith took part in a point shaving plot.  Upon receiving the threat, UofL AD Tom Jurich alerted the NCAA and Attorney General Jack Conway, who then notified the FBI to investigate. That investigation resulted in the arrest and indictment of  Thomas E. Ray III, of Jackson, Mississippi who used the alias of ‘Melinda White’ to email Jurich the point shaving scheme...Continue reading »

(Photo – 247 Sports)   I know, I know, captain obvious. Of course a five-star freshman (according to every major scouting service) should be included on anybody’s list of Top 30 Freshman. So far in limited viewing (three intrasquad scrimmages, to be exact), Rozier has been fantastic, showing flashes of a versatile and aggressive offensive game as well as a knack to rebound the ball and defend in half-court situations. In fact, he’s arguably been the best “all around” player through those three scrimmages,...Continue reading »
