The Cardinal Connect:
Adam Himmelsbach of the Courier-Journal recently caught up with Chane Behanan’s high school coach to get his thoughts on Behanan’s suspension one game suspension.
“Like any other teenager, he’s probably put some things out there he regrets putting out there,” Bowling Green High School coach D.G. Sherrill said in a telephone interview with the C-J. “His uncle or his mom usually address that pretty quickly.”
“Down here, we feel fortunate that Coach Pitino is making sure Chane is dotting his I’s and crossing his T’s,” Sherrill said.
“With me knowing that young man, I’m sure he’s done some dumb stuff over the years that he’s been accountable for,” he said.
“He likes to have fun with it,” Sherrill said. “I’m sure when he has the opportunity to talk to you all, he’ll give you his opinion on things.”
With Pitino taking this approach and Montrezl Harrell being able to push him in practice every day, I think this will only help Behanan stay focused. There is a lot of talen

Louisville sophomore forward Chane Behanan must sit out the Cardinals' exhibition opener against Pikeville on Nov. 1 and is banned from talking with the media this semester.
Coach Rick Pitino said Sunday that Behanan was involved in some unspecified ''incidents'' this summer and was warned that another would lead to him missing games.
The 6-foot-6 Behanan, who...
The media was informed when arriving this afternoon to Louisville’s annual media day gathering that Chane Behanan would not be available to speak to the media until the second semester. Behanan is also suspended for the Pikeville exhibition on Thursday Nov. 1st.
This was included in the media day/red-white scrimmage itinerary.
“From 2-3 p.m., players will be available on the...
Louisville's team concept is such that the term ''go-to guy'' applies to just about anybody on the roster.
At least, that's the philosophy of Cardinals guards Peyton Siva and Russ Smith and center Gorgui Dieng, who are expected to lead a return to the Final Four along with forward Chane Behanan. It's reflected in last season's scoring, where Smith...
At media day on Sunday afternoon Peyton Siva briefly discussed all of the nicknames on this year’s team. He says he’s too old to have a nickname. He also has a separate nickname for Russ Smith, other than Russdiculous.
A few thoughts on University of Louisville basketball after Sunday’s intrasquad scrimmage at the KFC Yum! Center …Luke Hancock will be a rock, a steadying influence, bringing a wider variety of shots and higher accuracy than Kyle Kuric. Businesslike approach to the game, scoring a very quiet 29 points while hitting four of four from behind the three-point line.Peyton Siva went...
As expected, Gorgui Dieng was one of the more popular players at media day on Sunday afternoon. Nearly every media member in attendance crowded around Gorgui throughout the hour that players were available. One of the more popular questions that Dieng was asked on Sunday is if he still intends on playing at Louisville for four years. Gorgui didn’t give an exact answer, but he did...
It was a sloppy start, but Louisville’s second of three intra-squad scrimmages ended up being a pretty competitive match-up. The red team ended prevailing 85-74 behind Luke Hancock and Kevin Ware’s big performances. Hancock led all scorers with 29 points on 7-of-13 shooting. He also added six assists and two steals. Hancock really impressed me this afternoon. He’s very crafty...

We spent a good part of the show discussing the details behind Rick Pitino having a last second change of heart and taking the Louisville job after signing an agreement with Michigan. Where would Louisville be if Pitino didn’t come?
In this clip, Louisville Men’s Basketball Coach Rick Pitino talks about his road to coaching the Cardinal.
Steve Greenberg, a college football writer for the Sporting News was in Louisville yesterday afternoon and spoke with Charlie Strong and some of his players. As expected, the rumor of Arkansas being interested in Charlie Strong as their next head coach was mentioned. Cardinal quarterback Teddy Bridgewater doesn’t seem to be too concerned about Strong leaving anytime soon.
I never thought I’d see this from a Charlie Strong coached Louisville team, but this year’s offense is clearly carrying the team thus far. Louisville’s offense is converting on third down 56.04% of the time which ranks second in the country, behind only Army who is converting 56.99% of the time.
While Louisville’s offense is thriving, the Cards defense isn’t playing...
For the third week in a row Lorenzo Mauldin is inserted into the starting front four. Mauldin’s performance the previous two games have been the strongest two-game performance thus far for a Louisville defensive lineman. His 3.5 sacks and 4.5 tackles for loss against Pitt & USF far exceed any two game combo of anyone on the Cards roster. If this progress continues, it’s...
University of Louisville football coach Charlie Strong has the Cardinals at 7-0 and one of only 11 undefeated FBS teams in the country. The Cardinals have nine commitments in the Class of 2013 but are busy on the recruiting trail. Here are a few recruiting nuggets with players that have interest in the Cardinals.
University of Louisville football coach Charlie Strong has the Cardinals sitting at 7-0 with a short week in front of them. A notebook of some U of L items heading into Friday’s home game against Cincinnati.
Charlie Strong, a cardboard cutout of him anyway, stirs up the tailgaters in the Green Lot of Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium prior to Saturday’s Louisville-South Florida football game. The fire truck from the seventies, owned by long-time UofL fan Ron Thomas, circled the parking lot several times, bells ringing, sirens screaming, and firing up the party lovers. As the Cardinals...
