Rare Top 10 Battle Looms For U of L

Big games are becoming fairly common around these parts (VOG) and they won't disappear when we join the ACC. But even among those rare birds, this is something of an ivory-billed woodpecker of a game.

But the real story is the use of the Preston! dance at 4:00. It is slowly taking over.

10th annual no pants day?

The fact that this was scheduled the day after Charlie Strong kicked some off-season ass cannot be a coincidence.


Rick Pitino – Get in Line (behind CC)

Jeff Goodman is making more watch lists and vying heavily for Least Cool Person of 2010.  This time, he’s ticked off Coach Pitino, whose sarcastic tone would fit nicely in a CC game thread. 

Best College Rivalries of the 2000s

10. Louisville-West Virginia Next game: Saturday, noon ET, at Louisville • • Check in " The rivalry wasn't born until the Cardinals joined the Big East before the 2005 season, but it has produced some of the best games of the past decade. In 2005, the outcome wasn't decided until the third overtime. After freshman West Virginia tailback Steve Slaton scored his sixth touchdown of the game and quarterback Pat White added a two-point conversion pass, Cardinals quarterback Brian Brohm was tackled short of the end zone on a two-point run, giving the Mountaineers a 46-44 victory. The next season, Louisville took advantage of West Virginia's three turnovers to win 44-34. In 2007, White scored on a 50-yard run with 1:36 left to give the Mountaineers a 38-31 victory. Edited to reflect modern era.

Tim Higgins - behind the scenes

Interesting article which includes details about the Syracuse-Louisville game last weekend. "In Louisville, the fan base and even Pitino are furious at late-game decisions in two games (late-January losses at Seton Hall and West Virginia) that have left the Cardinals sitting on a precariously bubble-ish ledge of 16-9. "I'm very upset with three officials; I like them, I respect them, but I'm not very happy with them," Pitino said. "I had two games I should have won. But you know what? It happens. They blow calls." And they know they do. And they don't like it any more than anyone else."

Mike, was that you?

I was disappointed that I didn’t get to see the game Saturday, but when I saw this article I got very excited that we might have won and Mike have been caught in the act of celebrating. Apparently not, however.

ESPN's college basketball schedule

It's getting closer. Sure some of these early games aren't must-see-TV, but they might be a little more promising than Syracuse v. Louisville on the gridiron.

I posted this on one of the message boards, but they get buried so quickly, I thought I'd post it here too.  Sorry if it seems petty, but I'm sorta ticked off right now:
