Sunday’s Outside The Lines (OTL) was what we thought it would be.  Not a lot of new news and more of a repackaging of the original story.  However, the second installment featured Andre McGee in his uber car as well as a report that stated three recruits confirmed to the NCAA they received sex that was paid for by McGee.  The first OTL reported back in October that five former UofL players or recruits confirmed the parties and one of the players received sex that was paid for by Andre McGee. Five former University of Louisville basketball...Continue reading »

Terry Rozier has not received the amount of playing time he initially wanted in the NBA, but he is finally getting a small chance with the postseason-bound Celtics.  The 2015-16 NBA season has not been full of highlights for former Louisville Cardinal Terry Rozier. Instead, he has had a couple stints in the NBDL via assignment from the Boston Celtics; however, the rookie has made the most of all tasks and has showcased his skillset in front of all crowds. This past Friday versus the Houston Rockets, “T-Roz” logged 10 minutes off...Continue reading »

Louisville coach Bobby Petrino turned a crisis into an opportunity Sunday evening. The sudden departure of offensive coordinator Garrick McGee earlier this month was certainly a blow to the program, but Sunday evening’s revelation that former West Virginia wide receivers coach and top-tier recruiter Lonnie Galloway would serve as his successor should put fans at ease. Replacing arguably the most valuable offensive assistant less than a month before spring practice put Petrino in an uncomfortable position, but with his back against the...Continue reading »

It’s been a while since Russ has penned a piece on his blog, but he recently found some time in between dominating the D-League to share his thoughts on what Coach Pitino means to him.  He titled it “Royal Rick” and released the first of three entries last night.  It offers an insight rarely seen by the average fan in regards to how Coach P interacts with his players on and off the court. It was the day I missed curfew at South Kent Prep and little did I know that was when I’d meet the wrath of coach Rick Pitino. We were...Continue reading »

Self proclaimed “Players First” coach John Calipari told a Philadelphia newspaper that Damion Lee being allowed to transfer to Louisville caused Drexel coach Bruiser Flint to be fired.  Cal was critical of the graduate transfer rule saying it was “bad for the kids” and “it’s not good for the game”. Even though he took advantage of this rule in 2013 when he accepted graduate transfer Julius Mays from Wright State.  But Cal, it’s all about the players, right? “But what happened was,...Continue reading »

In a league that is increasingly looking for wing players to space the floor and play a role, Lee is a solid candidate to get drafted, make a NBA team and potentially stick if he’s able to adapt quickly enough to the...Continue reading »

Though Russ Smith is stringing together countless MVP performances, will an NBA team give him a call this season? “Russdiculous” has been tearing up the NBA’s Developmental League (NBDL) since signing with the Delaware 87ers in January. However, he continues to get passed up for call-up opportunities. From a plethora of 30-point performances to a 16-point, 16-assist highlight reel to a latest dominating outburtst of 50 — yes, 50 — points, it is difficult to understand why Smith has not joined another NBA team....Continue reading »
