Send to KindlePer a release from the University of Louisville, junior forward Chane Behanan has been suspended indefinitely from the team.
A preseason All-American Athletic Conference selection, Behanan averaged 9.8 points, 6.5 rebounds, shot 50.7 percent from the field and totaled 54 steals as a sophomore last season while starting 37 games. He was named to the NCAA Final Four All-Tournament team, producing a double-double against Michigan in the national championship game with 15 points and 12 rebounds.
Behanan has been in the Louisville doghouse before. Last season, he missed the Cardinals preseason slate, as well as the season opener versus Manhattan. Notably, coach Rick Pitino also banned Behanan from talking with the media during last year’s non-conference season.
Pitino has said that Behanan’s immature actions have lead to this current discipline issue, which is the same reason for last year’s suspension. Pitino has said that the suspension could be lifted in December.
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Shades of the past.
A key player bending, disregarding rules, unable to adjust to college life, treating second chances like green lights, reminiscent of the Derrick Caracter days at the University of Louisville.
Only this time it’s Chane Behanan, a major contributor in UofL’s march to a third national championship last season, providing muscle, experience and reason for optimism...
On Thursday afternoon it was announced that Cardinals forward Chane Behanan had been suspended by Louisville.
University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino announced that junior forward Chane Behanan has been suspended indefinitely from the team. Cardinal Authority was at the news conference and has the latest.
Stop thinking about how this affects the team.
Stop adding up who gets more minutes in Chane Behanan’s absence.
Stop wondering if or when he’ll be back.
Stop thinking about December 28th.
Stop it. Now.
It’s time to let Chane Behanan grow up.
“This isn’t about basketball,” Rick Pitino said. “It’s about Chane as a person.”
Although specifics of Behanan’s suspension...
Teddy Bridgewater and the Louisville Cardinals have been flirting with losing for a couple weeks and this time the near misses finally hit home.
After getting out to a 28-7 lead in the third quarter UCF fired back with 24 unanswered points to take a 31-28 lead in the fourth quarter with 8:31 left to play. Bridgewater did what he was expected to do and...
On Friday, Louisville Cardinals quarterback and Heisman hopeful Teddy Bridgewater will be placed into the national spotlight yet again, when his undefeated squad takes on Central Florida.
Because Bridgewater is expected to go high in the next NFL Draft, perhaps even No. 1 overall, many scouts will be on hand to watch the junior signal caller. This includes one scout, who spoke...
Louisville was upset by Central Florida, but the future still looks positive for the Cardinals. Photo: USA Today Sports. About midway through the third quarter it sure looked like Louisville was going to cruise to another win en route to an undefeated season to make a case to be included in the BCS Championship picture at the end of the year. Then, out of nowhere, Central Florida...
Awwwww so cute. And obviously has no link what-so-ever to Teddy Bridgewater, #5 and star quarterback for the Louisville Cardinals. Nope. Everything is on the up-and-up here.
Well at least Louisville wasn’t caught selling merchandise to exploit famously-injured players.

We likely won’t know for sure until right before kickoff if Louisville junior wide receiver DeVanter Parker will suit up and give it a go tomorrow evening against Central Florida. Parker went down with a shoulder injury in the first quarter against Temple on Oct. 5. He didn’t play in last week’s game against Rutgers.
Charlie Strong told the media earlier this week that Parker...
Two seasons ago, Michaelee Harris was one of the leading receivers for the University of Louisville, making spectacular catches on a routine basis.
He returned for a redshirt freshman year in 2011, starting in 12 games, pulling in 37 receptions for 455 yards and two touchdowns. He was one the go-to guys, second only to Eli Rogers with 41 catches. But that was before Harris incurred...
In mid August, Kendall Randolph, a 5-foot-11, 170-pound, defensive back from Tallahassee, FL., tabbed Charlie Strong and the Louisville Cardinals as the favorites in his recruitment.
As two months have passed, apparently nothing has changed. Randolph says that Louisville is still his favorite school and he’s okay with being quoted on that.
Randolph had initially told...

We’re now midway through the 2013 college football season. Charlie Strong and the Louisville Cardinals are 6-0 and haven’t much of a scare from anyone on the schedule thus far. The defense ranks first in the country in scoring defense and the offense ranks 16th in total yards per game.
Multiple national college football outlets have been releasing...

I’m not really sure where to start. There is nothing I can say that is going to make you feel any better than you do right now. That was an extremely tough loss to take. Not just because a team that looked to on their way an undefeated season took an L in the loss column, but it’s the way that it happened.
With just a few minutes left in the third quarter...
University of Louisville football coach Charlie Strong is staying positive with his team and the Cardinals are still gunning for their goals even after a 38-35 loss to Central Florida on Friday night.
