The Cardinal Connect:
This video from CollegeInsider.com is a few months old, but I found it pretty interesting to see how much former Louisville assistant and current Manhattan head coach Steve Masiello mimics his former boss, Rick Pitino.

University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino just turned 60, signed a new contract extension that will have him coaching until he’s 70 and has perhaps his best team in 12 seasons with the Cardinals. Pitino and his team will open the regular-season on Sunday at 4 p.m. against Manhattan College.
Louisville guard Luke Hancock begins a new chapter in his career Sunday when the No. 2 Cardinals open the season against Manhattan.
The transfer from George Mason had to watch Louisville make its exciting run to the Final Four while sitting out last season per NCAA rules. Hancock's ability to shoot the 3-pointer should help the Cardinals, but his impact won't be immediate...
Chane Behanan, Gorgui Dieng and Peyton Siva have been named to the Wooden Award preseason top 50 watch list. Louisville is the only school in the country to have three players honored. ESPN.com exclusively released the list earlier this afternoon. Freshmen and transfers are not eligible, but they can be added to the list as the season progresses and ultimately win the award.
Anybody else come close to dozing off during the University of Louisville-Bellarmine exhibition?
U of L running no set plays, making one of 19 three-point shots, getting out-rebounded 43-38 by a much smaller team, and making only 12 of 23 free throw attempts. Not encouraging.
If Rick Pitino’s team looked out of sorts, it may have been because he had run his team through a double...
University of Louisville senior point guard Peyton Siva received quite an honor earlier this week. Siva was on the cover of the Sports Illustrated basketball preview. Cardinal Authority talked to Siva about being on the cover.
While a 9-0 start was doing wonders for improving the national perception of University of Louisville football, a loss appeared almost inevitable with so many shortcomings in critical areas of the game.
Staring with a defense that has routinely allowed opponents to move the ball almost at will and a defense that counted on other teams to stop themselves. Little semblance of effectiveness...
Things just keep getting better for the Louisville Cardinals. First came a surprise trip to the Final Four, then a contract extension that will keep coach Rick Pitino around for nine more years.
Can a national championship be next?
The players seem to think so.
"The expectations are a lot coming in, but we have the personnel to get the job done,'' guard Russ Smith...
B.J. Butler and Jalen Harrington have been key players for the University of Louisville football team the past two weeks. But at the tight end spot, not on defense where the two started the season. Cardinal Authority has the story.
