UofL will find out soon if they will land two more players for their 2014 class as 4-star big man Chinanu Onauku will announce tomorrow at 2:30 and 3-star guard Sam Cassell, Jr. is down to Louisville and UConn.  Will UofL’s backcourt scare off Cassell like it did Snider and Lyle, or will he want to play for the defending champs in the ACC?  We should know his answer within the next few days. “They’ve been a fan of Sam’s for a while, and I think the decommitment (of Lyle) definitely opened up a spot that allowed them to pursue...Continue reading »

CL Brown, formerly of the Courier-Journal, filed a piece on ESPN.com about Russ Smith and his focused approach on the upcoming season.  Russ came back for his senior season because he wants to perfect his craft and give the Cards a good chance to repeat.  If his off-season dedication is any indication of how ‘Russdiculous’ has turned serious, UofL will be competing for another national title in Dallas. “They were joking, saying things like, I’m crazy, and why did I keep doing stuff like this, and Russ is messing...Continue reading »

Photo – cbssports.com In what was an unprofessional classless stunt, a pair of Boston sports radio saps promptly welcomed Coach Pitino to their program, told him he ruined the Celtics, and then hung up on him. Pitino discussion with host Fred Toucher went like this: Fred: We are joined by Rick Pitino, former coach of the Celtics, current coach of the Louisville Cardinals who won the national championship. Rick Pitino, hello! Pitino: Morning, guys. Fred: You stink. You ruined the Celtics. That was it.  The cowards hung up and the interview...Continue reading »

  (Photo — ESPN) DeLoss Dodds, the athletic director for the University of Texas, announced on Tuesday he is stepping down next August. That has led to speculation that Texas might give Louisville AD Tom Jurich a look. Texas would be foolish if they chose not to give Jurich a call but, apparently, Jurich is not going anywhere. According to a tweet from Yahoo Sports’ Pat Forde last night, Jurich is happy at Louisville and wants to enjoy the ACC, Louisville’s future conference. Sense I get from Louisville people is Tom...Continue reading »

    As we discussed on the radio show last night, the coaching carousel has already begun.  In addition to that, there will be a massive AD job available too as Texas announced that their longtime athletic director DeLoss Dodds will retire.  UT would be stupid not to call Jurich, who is widely regarded as the top AD in the nation.  Under Jurich’s leadership, Louisville will enter the ACC with the second largest athletic budget in the conference at $87.8 million (Florida State $100 million).  That figure ranks 20th nationally,...Continue reading »

Peyton Siva is currently working out in the Pistons training camp getting prepared for the upcoming season, but Detriot is stacked at his position.  What does that mean for Peyton?  He signed a guaranteed contract, but instead of making him inactive, the Pistons will probably get him some clock with their NBDL affiliate Fort Wayne.  That move keeps Siva in the Pistons organziation and will get him some valuable professional experience for year two. “With four potential point guards in front of him, playing time probably won’t happen...Continue reading »

Sorry in advance if/when this brings up bad memories, but Pat Forde compiled names of the worst hires in the 2000’s and not shocking in the least, Kraggle Rock came in second on his infamous list.  Most fans knew something wasn’t right when MTSU ran all over the Cards in just the second game of his tenure.  Those fears were realized when he lost to UK the next week on a long pass from Andre Woodson (the same play UK ran right before halftime that should have been a touchdown but the receiver dropped it).  If you’re like...Continue reading »

According to a tweet from @TWalkerRivals, it appears as though UofL has a traitor in their faculty as an Industrial Engineering professor put this as a bonus question on one of his/her exams.  It’s obvious that this professor needs to re-take geography because they must have forgotten where they teach – and get paid.  Or they are simply an idiot.  Here’s what it says: “Create a bar graph that compares the total (all-time) number of victories that the UK basketball team has versus the total number of victories the...Continue reading »
