File this under random, but nonetheless it’s still an interesting look at the game 26 years ago as Coach Crum and Coach K breakdown the Final Four and Coach P is interviewed after his Providence team loses to Syracuse in the national semifinal.  What’s more shocking however, is the fact that there is basically a brawl that breaks out during the Providence-Syracuse game and nobody is thrown out.  You’ll also enjoy Pitino’s answer of “where am I  going to go?” when asked if he would return as Providence’s coach the following...Continue reading »

The American Commish Mike Aresco spoke to CBSSports.com and outlined the future of his new league and how he plans to deal with Louisville before they take off to the ACC in 2014.   In the upcoming lame duck year,  the Cardinals figure to be the favorites to win the league in football, basketball, and baseball.  That alone means that Aresco would be wise to use UofL in some way to bolster the league’s image in the short-term.  Judging from the article, the new conference and Rutgers aren’t exactly on the best of terms, but at least they will include UofL...Continue reading »

Rick Pitino’s Louisville Cardinals, fresh off of a national championship, will once again be expected to contend for the crown in the 2013-14 season. The team returns the majority of their championship roster, but also welcome in a top 10 recruiting class, thus creating high expectations. Much of the hype surrounding the recruit class has been geared towards talented backcourt players Terry Rozier, Anton Gill and 2013 Junior College National Player of the Year Chris Jones, who are all considered elite guards expected to contribute immediately. Be that as it...Continue reading »

photo – @k_cheesebrough Fans waiting to buy tickets for the NCAA Baseball Regional this morning *Athlon says the Cards are poised for a hot start The MAC played the role of spoiler against the Big East last season (Kent State over Rutgers, Toledo over Cincinnati, Western Michigan over Connecticut). Ohio returns quarterback Tyler Tettleton and running back Beau Blankenship from the team that upset Penn State last season, so Louisville should be on alert. That said, if the Cardinals are indeed a top-10 team in 2013, they shouldn’t have much trouble with the first...Continue reading »
