Retire No. 2

It's the city's number.

The Final Movement: A Cardinal Symphony

We don’t want this game to be our last memory of this team. We want it to be, if anything, our first.

"What's Happening Here, Bob(by)?"

Bobby Petrino is going to be the head coach of the University of Louisville. I have no idea how to feel about that, but I want to see him succeed.

A Declaration of Existence

We are not you, and we do not want to be you. Ever.

The City's Uniform History (1950-1959)

Now, we'll take on the era of Elvis, "Johnny B. Goode," and Sputnik. If the Reds were in the news at this time, they most often did not refer to a baseball team.

The City's Uniform History (1944-1950)

Over the coming weeks (and months), I will start piecing together, as best I can, a uniform history of the Louisville Cardinals.


Russ Smith, Motivational Speaker

He had me at, "I think we all need a pep talk." I can't quit watching this: "A Pep Talk from Russ Smith (link)" Yes, Russ, we do. Somewhere, in the midst of all of the Madness, this video was...


Coming Home to Louisville

When my parents answered the phone I cried. I’m pretty sure they had been crying, too. I was not yet two years-old when our team, the city’s team, won their last title. That makes me around the...

The Day the City Cried

With a team like this, with a city like this, Kevin Ware and these Cardinals will never again run alone. Because we, all of us, are the City’s Team and that is something worth yelling about.


Dr. Robert Klapper on Kevin Ware's Injury

For those of you who live in Southern California and have ever listened to 710 ESPN or its affiliates, you may have heard of Dr. Robert Klapper. Dr. Klapper is an orthopedic surgeon with...


Batman has had it

If you've been on Facebook or Twitter the last few days, you have no doubt been subjected to unbelievable factoids about Louisville basketball history, aesthetic critiques of Louisville uniforms,...

Louisville Vs. Kentucky: A City Vs. A Nation

We are the city’s team. A lot of other schools and teams like to describe themselves as "nations." There’s the Red Sox Nation, of course, and, up the road, the Lexington Basketball Academy Nation....


My Old Louisville Home (Plaschke)

Many of you probably know Bill Plaschke either from his regular column in the Los Angeles Times or from his appearances on ESPN programming such as "Around the Horn."What most of you probably don't...


Dieng Fluent in Hoops

This article ran yesterday in the Los Angeles Times. Link here. Key quotes: "Everywhere I go, I want to learn something new," [Dieng] said. "Every day I get up, I want to learn something new." "...


Louisville First, Cards Forever (Video)

I don't know if this has been posted before. But in a week of epic videos, this video is proof that this evan westendorf kid has got a future. Imagine all the best bits of the last decade or so...

"What's Happening Here, Bob?" Sunday Shooting Edition

Of the five or so of you who either remember or have read my posts on this site, you will recall that I tend to favor posting shots of Jim Boeheim or Homer Simpson in various states of duress....

University of Kentucky spelling. Well, that's pitiful.

‘Monitoring’ the Situation v. 2.0, or "What’s Happening Here, Again, Tom?"

Ouch. Where We Stand: Wall of silence broken and still disappointed. Not in the Big XII, SEC, ACC, or Metro Conference. Perhaps, soon in the same conference as Boise St. Facepalm became facedesk,...


'Monitoring' the Situation v. 1.0 or "What's Happening Here, Tom?"

Well, today hurt a bit. And that might be an understatement. When Schnellenberger said "collision course," I don't think he meant "facepalm." Personally, I think we’re all a little tired of the...

AP Reporter quotes New Big East Pledge


Russo, AP writer for college football has on his Twitter feed a statement that the current Big East members have all pledged to stay together.

Titans Add Byron Stingily in 6th Round


"[Nashville] was real nice. It’s a little bigger than Louisville but it kind of reminds me of Louisville, very laid back. I’m going to enjoy it there," said Stingily, in a transcript from the conference call, also on the Titans website. Over the last two seasons, the 6-foot-5 Stingily started 23 games for a Cardinal offensive line that allowed 17 sacks in 2010. Patrick, Powell, Stingily. Charlie Strong approves. (But probably demands love for Graham, Heath, Beaumont, and Froman.)

Jets Select Bilal Powell in Fourth Round


"Powell (5’11″, 207), who was one of the Jets’ prospect visitors earlier this month, had a breakout season in 2010 — in fact, one of the best seasons of rushing in Louisville history. He rushed for 1,405 yards, second-most in school history, on 229 carries, a 6.1 per-carry average, and 11 touchdowns. His 117.08 yards per game was 11th in the nation." "We had a new coach come in. My role changed," he explained.


A Cardinal Wishlist 2011-2012

As we begin the long summer (and final exams), still stinging from the NCAA Tournament and 0-2 mark against UK in baseball, I’d like to provide an early top-ten wishlist for the athletics-palooza...


Louisville Basketball 2010-2011 or Why I'm Okay with the '!' in Yum!

It wasn’t supposed to happen like this.  Last year, while some looked forward to Duke, others of us started intently at California while they dismantled a Louisville squad we loved, but never felt...


Freedom Hall and "The Horse"

My fondest memories of Freedom Hall, like so many who have written here, are filled with names like Morton, Wheat, Beau Zach Smith! and BJ Flynn! (who both may have been the first to have the “!”...
