The Cardinal Connect:
Charlie Strong and the Louisville football program started spring practice yesterday afternoon. With the Cardinals coming off a Sugar Bowl win and returning a Heisman candidate in Teddy Bridgewater there is plenty to be excited about as Coach Strong heads into his fourth year with the program.
Unfortunately there was some bad news that surfaced yesterday at the Trager indoor practice facility. Matt Milton, a 6-foot-5 wide receiver who transferred from Tennessee last January has apparently suffered a knee injury.
As you could expect, the Louisville message boards were running with this and the rumor was that Milton would miss the entire 2013 season, which isn’t true. I’m not sure exactly what type of injury Milton suffered, but I’m being told he’ll only be out for the spring. At this time all of the players who are injured and not participating in spring ball are expected to be back to 100% in the fall.
Milton sat out last year due to the NCAA’s transfer rule. He is currently listed ...

University of Louisville football coach Charlie Strong confirmed on Friday afternoon that defensive line coach and associate head coach Clint Hurtt is on an administrative leave. Cardinal Authority was at practice for the story:
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.

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.

Louisville head coach Rick Pitino calls out ESPN analyst Digger Phelps' basketball knowledge, stating "that man knows nothing."
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.
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.
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...
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...
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,...

Richard Pitino, men's basketball coach at Florida International University and son of Louisville coach Rick Pitino, is looking to put the program on the college basketball map.
One way FIU will draw attention in Pitino's second season is with a unique court design featuring a beach motif that the school revealed this week.
