  Following one of the ugliest and embarrassing NCAA investigations on college sports history involving prostitutes in dorms and the removal of a national championship from the record books, most coaches who were in charge during such a scandal would almost certainly be removed from their duties immediately. Rick Pitino, however, is not most coaches. He is a championship-winning coach, a fierce competitor, regarded as one of the best in his line of work, and during the second decade of the new millennium, he has consistently had his team...Continue reading »

In the wake of what seems to be a never-ending bad news cycle for the University of Louisville, the question has been raised: Does UofL owe the fans something for all of this (lets call it what it is) embarrassment? Another question I’ll add is what does UofL need to do reel fans back in that might be wavering in their fan hood of the “city school” of the state. The simple answer for both questions is for UofL to win. Winning makes a lot of people forget. This fan base forgot about Coach Pitino’s indiscretions...Continue reading »

  When it comes to football, it is an indisputable fact that dual-threat QBs in college cannot transition to the professional game and moving to wide receiver would be in their best interest. Oh, wait, I guess Cam Newton has been pretty successful, being a Super Bowl QB and MVP and all. Whatever, though, but that’s it. He’s the EXCEPTION, not THE RULE. Oh, whoops, forgot about Michael Vick. He was also pretty freaking dominant at both levels of football. But that’s– crap, didn’t think about guys like Randall...Continue reading »

Make no mistake, the baseball teams first ever national championship would speak for itself. The city of Louisville and UofL’s fan base has bought in. More and more of the fan base buys in with every deep postseason...Continue reading »

  The most decorated player of the Rick Pitino era of Louisville basketball decided this weekend that he had bitten his tongue long enough. Former guard Russ Smith, a two-time All-American and arguably the most recognizable member of Louisville’s 2012 and 2013 teams, took to Twitter over the weekend to give his thoughts on what he believed to be an unfair ruling laid out by the NCAA (to put it mildly).  Smith was present during everything that was alleged to happen from 2010 to 2014, and while he does not dispute that wrongdoing...Continue reading »
