The Cardinal Connect:
On yesterday afternoon’s radio show I spent the first segment talking about Mike Marra’s torn ACL and how it will affect this year’s team. I realize the news was a little dated, but Tuesday was my first opportunity to really discuss it in full length.
When mentioning some of the brighter moments in Mike’s Louisville career, a caller reminded me of a video on YouTube of Marra dunking in prep school alumni game.

They can’t take that one away from you, Mike. Never!
