Louisville Card Game:
The bitter rivalry between the University of Louisville and Kentucky has been elevated several notches because of UofL’s remarkable success and UK’s abysmal failure in basketball. Karma depends on where one’s loyalty stands.
Louisville performed as expected, winding up as the No. 2 team in the Associated Press poll while being awarded the No. 1 in the NCAA Tournament. Kentucky, predicted as high as No. 3 before the season began, failed to win the SEC Conference, was defeated in the first games of the conference tournament and the National Invitation Tournament, and was not among the nation’s top 25 as the season ended.
As for the trip to Lexington, get in, get out, with as little interaction between games with the natives as possible.
UofL fans couldn’t be happier about the turn of events. UK fans couldn’t be more angry or deflated. In the minds of the intensely-loyal fan bases, the success or failure of the other program is almost equally important as their own. Sad but true, brin...

HE KNOWS NOTHING
Rick Pitino is aware that many analysts are picking his squad to win the national title, but he's hoping one analyst did not pick his team.
Louisville Cardinals forward Chane Behanan was rejected by the rim on a dunk attempt in the first half of Thursday's NCAA tournament game against North Carolina A&T.
Fortunately Behanan's miss didn't matter much, as top-seeded Louisville rolled over the 16th-seeded Aggies 79-48.

If you haven’t seen the Kid President Pep Talk video, then you have been living under a cyber rock. Either way, you’ll still enjoy Russ Smith’s version.
I think we all need a pep talk.

Louisville head coach Rick Pitino calls out ESPN analyst Digger Phelps' basketball knowledge, stating "that man knows nothing."
Pay attention, No. 1s. This is how it's done.
Russ Smith scored 23 points and set a Louisville NCAA tournament record with a career-high eight steals, and Peyton Siva had eight assists as the Cardinals demolished North Carolina A&T 79-48 on Thursday night.
Louisville finished with a season-high 20 steals as it forced the Aggies (20-17) into 27 turnovers. It was the 11th...
Louisville's Chane Behanan took off for an earth-shattering dunk against North Carolina A&T in the 2013 NCAA Tournament, but got rejected by the rim.
After Rick Pitino called out Digger Phelps for picking Louisville to go down in the Sweet 16, fans took to Twitter to hilariously hate on the ESPN analyst.
More often than not, I don’t enjoy games like that. When Louisville is playing an opponent like North Carolina A&T, it’s hard to not expect perfection. Tonight’s game wasn’t perfect by any means, but so far so good .
Louisville had some unforced turnovers in the first half, but other than that, this one was an absolute route. As you could expect, it was all started on...
ATLANTA -- The selection committee did not do the Louisville Cardinals, the NCAA tournament's No. 1 overall seed, any favors in the Midwest region.
If Louisville coach Rick Pitino is to capture his second national title, he will have to guide his team through one of the most dangerous regionals: the other top seeds in the Midwest, Nos. 1 through 6, are Duke, Michigan State,...
First Practice: March 20
Spring Game: April 13
With Teddy Bridgewater entering his third season at quarterback and riding high from that shocking upset of Florida in the Sugar Bowl, there hasn’t been a spring practice this exciting around Louisville in decades (probably ever).
This will be Louisville’s final year in the Big East (until they give me a new name I don’t...
The Orange gave up a double-digit lead over the Louisville Cardinals a game ago. Versus Montana, Syracuse held on and kept climbing. More inside.
With March Madness right around the corner, what better time to start talking about Spring Football…right? If you follow TheCardinalConnect.com closely you already know that I am one of the strange folk in this town that tends to favor the sport of football over basketball. For those of you that just learned that…I know, basketball fan card revoked. So, now that I made...
The University of Louisville began preparations for the 2013 season on Wednesday afternoon with the start of spring practice. Head coach Charlie Strong and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater visited with the media following day one.
