J. Bruce Miller responds to Darrell Griffith on NBA to Louisville efforts

If you care about the NBA to Louisville effort at all, I’m sure you have seen former Louisville Cardinal Darrell Griffith’s comments about what the NBA could do for Louisville. “If people think the Yum! Center is great, if they think UPS was great for the city…get an NBA franchise you’ll see what happens to this city. It’ll take it to a whole other level,” says former...

The weekend that was with UofL football, plus NEW UNIS

Today the Louisville Cardinals revealed brand new uniforms to be worn in the near future. I can’t wrap my head around how awesome they look. The black camouflage helmet along with the grey is a great combination. If you don’t like them, sorry, but you’re wrong! I’m sure they will be worn for a big game, with Clemson and Florida State coming up on the schedule. This weekend...

C-J takes shot at Cal, backlash insues. Here’s our thoughts.

If you are a subscriber to the Courier-Journal then you probably woke up to a sports front-page with a photoshop of UK basketball coach, John Calipari, being depicted as a crying baby. The picture was put in to go with C-J sports columnist, Tim Sullivan’s, piece on the Coach Cal’s comments about Duke head coach, Mike Krzyzewski, using his gig as the Team USA basketball coach...

Sorry, for making you read. Antonio Blakeney Backs Out This is what I hate about recruiting...

Cats send message in triple OT loss

Photo by Mark Foldy/Getty Images What a game, Cat fans. Kentucky fell to the Gators for the 28th straight season, and while the end result may seem like the same old song and dance, the Cats showed more than just a glimpse of where the program is headed. Kentucky lost the game 36-30 after three overtimes to a team they haven’t beaten since 1986. Mark Stoops and his troops aren’t...

Louisville lost to Virginia. I wrote about it.

I tweeted a lot of my thoughts on the U of L game, so I decided to put them to ink. Bottom line is that they did not play well. They didn’t deserve to win. And they didn’t. The first drive of the game was surgical. 9 plays, 75 yards in just over five minutes. On fourth and one from the nine, Will Gardner made a perfect pass to find Charles Standberry in the end zone. It was a...

Cards fall to Virginia 23-21 and it was ugly

Photo Credit: Ryan M. Kelly, The Daily Progress The story of the game was mistakes and Louisville made a ton of them. Multiple turnovers changed the game and put the Virginia Cavaliers in a position to win, which they did. The biggest mistake came on a botched punt by the special teams, allowing Virginia to take possession at the 25-yard line. In turn it led to a game-winning field...

Quick Look at the Florida Gators

Last year Kentucky played the Gators before everyone figured out that they just weren’t that good. And that may be putting it nicely as they won just one more game before losing their final eight en route to finishing 4-8. Florida won the game 24-7, but if the Cats could have figured out a way to move the ball they would have had a chance. To put into perspective how bad their...

Higher Payrolls in MLB No Longer Means More Wins

Major League Baseball has changed a lot since the late 1990’s and early 2000’s.  The Yankees dominated the game year after year, buying players, having the highest payroll, which led to more wins. Skip ahead to the year 2012 and that all changed, rather quickly. The small market teams earned TV deals, upping their payroll and they were able to compete with the bigger markets...

Big news dropped earlier Tuesday about an unprecedented event that University of Kentucky men’s basketball coach, John Calipari, was in the works of finalizing an NBA combine for UK players only. The event would be the first of its kind in the college basketball landscape. We’ve seen this done by colleges before, but in the football realm of things. We’ve never seen the type...

Cats wear grey. Towles runs a lot. I write about it.

On Kentucky’s first drive they went 75 yards on ten plays and scored on a Patrick Towles touchdown pass to Dorian Baker with 11:27 to go in the first quarter. On their second drive they went 80 yards on eight plays and scored on a Boom Williams touchdown run of 53 yards. With 8:24 to go in the first quarter, it looked like it was going to be a romp. It looked like Kentucky would...

Cardinals dominated on offense and defense in big win

Credit: Associated Press (Timothy D. Easley) Just like week one the Louisville Cardinals wore black, Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium sold out and the final score was in the Cards favor. Louisville pounded the ball on the ground and lit up the scoreboard as seven different players got into the end zone as the Cards won 66-21 on Saturday night.

Quick look at the Ohio Bobcats

Ohio enters Saturday’s contest with Kentucky coming off of five straight bowl appearances under head coach Frank Solich. So, they had success. And all UK fans remember the last time Ohio came to Lexington as the Bobcats took down the Wildcats 28-16 in 2004. But, this Ohio team faces a challenge that the previous five teams haven’t had to face. They lost a lot of players from...
