Rick Pitino not the only one scared of Celebratory Cannons

+

Rick Pitino is the only one scared of loud cannons. You know who else is? Cam Newton. Did the same duck and cover move at Coach P. Don't pay any attention to Steve Mariucci's reaction, some Bucs fans just coincidentally pinched his rear at the same time as the cannon.

NCAA Investigator Intimidates & Threatens Student Witnesses

As we have previously discussed the Miami investigation by the NCAA numerous times, here is more information on the investigation by the NCAA. Yahoo! Sports Article from AP In this link, the NCAA...

Expansion is Dead. ACC is stable with new GoR

+

The ACC signed a Grant of Rights (GOR) with all 15 member schools (including Pitt, Cuse, UofL and ND) that runs through the 2026-27 athletic season. What this means is that the ACC is now immune to B1G or Big12 attempts at poaching schools and that ND's non-football programs are locked in the ACC. If ND were to want to join a conference in football, they'd either need to join the ACC or leave all their non-football TV revenues behind for the next 14 years. Major move for stability in the ACC.

Another Article on Shapiro & NCAA

+

More insight on the situation of the NCAA trying to keep Shapiro "happy" during the investigation process, including the letter in which the NCAA stated they'd consider hiring him, $4500 and a pre-paid cell given to him while in prison and illegal information from the bankruptcy case in which the NCAA planned to spend nearly $60,000 to get. Call UM's cheating what you want. It was bad and the school and those involved deserve punishment commensurate for what they can be proven to have done. But there are not words to describe how poorly the NCAA handled this case and how far past the line they were willing to go to get the information to do what they wanted to do.

Spring Depth Chart

From @UofLSheriff50 on Twitter. There are some injuries going into the spring that are in effect here, most notably at DE with Finesse Middleton listed as the starter because Mauldin is out. BJ Butler listed as starting FB! Dom Brown listed as RB1! Gardner listed as QB2! Critique and Comment away!

Mascot Bowl VI

See 3 former UofL QBs (Redman, LeFors and B. Brohm) play some football against 20 mascots. As much as I'd like to be able to say that LeFors trucked Quacky on the way to a TD, Quacky wasn't present. Quality stuff from WDRB.

Russ Smith on the Ken Pom Blog Today

19

Russ Smith featured quite a few times on the Ken Pom Blog today, but not for reasons you'd hope for. Seems Russ Smith was top of the list for Worst FG% in 3 different categories...under 6', 6'-20' and 13'-20'. In fact, Louisville had 3 players in the bottom 5 for mid-range (6'-20') jumpers (Russ, Siva and C Smith). Bottom line, we sucked at shooting the basketball last year and Russ chucked up a TON of shots and didn't make a great percentage. Under that bottom line, a foundation of Cardinal Fans who love Russ Smith, 100% of the time.

A little bit late after Father's Day, but I just saw this and noticed a UK apparel cameo. I'm sure there are a lot of Dads on aSoB that can relate. I gotta say, I'm feeling most like Dad #3/4 these days. Gardening and Disney movies is like 75% of my time off!

Kuric Talks with Louisville Sports Buzz

4

I'm sure many of you have already seen this interview with Kuric, done by Raashaan Myers; but it you haven't, it is a gem. He asks great questions and allows Kuric to speak at length to answer them. Kuric details what he's worked on this summer and what his and the team's goals are for the upcoming season. There is also some nice hints about the development of other players in the off-season, especially Russ Smith, Peyton and Dieng. Reading an interview like this makes it easy to get excited for our upcoming season. Go Cards!

Louisville Cardinal fan here and I just wanted to share this short video about Bilal Powell and his time at UofL with you all. Bilal is a special kid and I really believe the Jets may have gotten the steal of the mid-draft in picking him. Can't wait to see his development over the next few years. Hope you enjoy!

Interesting article on Jeremy Tyler, the one time Louisville commitment that shocked the country by skipping his senior year of high school to take a one-year professional contract in Israel. I'm not sure whether to think that Tyler would have been a bust at UofL (as he seemed to be in Israel) or whether he would have been a very important part of our 2010 class.

NCAA president: Time to discuss players getting sliver of revenue pie - USATODAY.com

+

And so it begins. Mark Emmert, NCAA President (and frequent recipient of boo's from ignorant UK fans) is on the record as saying the NCAA will explore the subject of bumping up the value of players' scholarships with NCAA revenue. The bump would include a few extra thousand dollars to take care of travel, laundry and other typical college expenses that aren't covered at this time. I have to say, that while I agree with what Emmert is proposing, a modest increase to cover reasonable and actual expenses, I'm a bit nervous that this won't go over well with a lot of different folks. It is in no way making equal to the amount of revenue that the players are bringing in, so some will say that it still isn't fair to the players. But it also probably isn't something that the NCAA will be able to police well. These folks worry that the more NCAA blessed pocket money that is available, the more of a screen coaches will have to hide behind claiming ignorance to inappropriate giving. Kid magically has a new PS3 and an IPad2 and coaches can just assume it came from his "laundry money". All in all, I personal think it's better than nothing and that players of major revenue sports deserve something for the amount of commercialization that the NCAA capitalizes off of them. I know my UofL scholarship paid for more than an athletic scholarship paid. I was paid tuition, room & board, books, meals, and a $3500 per semester stipend intended to cover miscellaneous needs like computers, transportation, etc. What say you, Cardinal faithful? Is this an good idea? Is it fair and enough compensation to the players? Or are we starting down a slippery slope in which college athletics becomes professional sport?

Louisville adds former Gamecocks recruit - Big East Blog - ESPN

Lorenzo Mauldin. If you haven't heard about this kid, it's worth reading up on. Mauldin has lived in 16 foster homes and currently resides in a children’s group home in Atlanta. He's also the victim of South Carolina and the SEC's general practice of oversigning. If he makes well on his test scores (still needs to take/pass the SAT or ACT), he will be an excellent pickup for the 2011 class. Even if not, I wish him the best and hope the future is bright for this young man.
