Ducks Soar, Sparty Swandives, Cards & Cats Kerplunk: MMQB (Sunday Style)

The List: Thursday’s Favorites

Kentuckiana’s Favorite NBA Team: Got to be the Sacramento Kings. Okay, they’ve got Tyreke Evans, but he didn’t play in their opener last night, a road W in Minnesooooooota. The stars? You know their names, yell ‘em out with me. DeMarcus Cousins. 14 points. 8 boards. 5 assists. 5 assists??????? Francisco Garcia. 7/12 from the […]

Seedy K’s Scintillating Selections: Week IX

After Kent State smote — or is that smitted — Bowling Green, combined with Ws by Mizzou, Auburn and our Louisville Cardinals (Only the Hawkeyes let me down), I stand 26-12 on the season. That 68.4 winning percentage ain’t shabby, if I did suffer multiple fractures to my arm, patting myself on the back. But […]

Center in the print edition of LEO, which hit the stands today (10/27), and also online at leoweekly.com here. And, so you won’t miss a chance anywhere you look to […]

LeBron, Baseball, Blue Field, Basketball: Tuesday’s Quick Shots

Was that really the NBA I was watching last night? On opening night, a relatively meaningless game between the aging Boston Celtics and THE GREATEST TEAM EVER ASSEMBLED? Well, yes it was. I like hoops. And I am frankly curious to see how Pat Riley’s grande experiment goes down. (And, truth be told, I do […]

Seedy K’s Sweet Sixteen, Cats vs. Cards in Bear Country?, Lombardi’s Nightmare & More: MMQB

It’s about this time every football season that I write it. Actually, a lot of guys write it. This season, we say, is the one that proves how foolish (Read: stupid) it is that college football doesn’t have a real championship playoff. How fans are getting ripped off. How college athletic programs, for which the […]

Horned Frogs PollAxed, Cam Rams Heisman Jam & Other Pigskin Pithiness: MMQB (Sunday Style)

Riddle me this, s’il vous plait, you pollstirrers? TCU is 8-0. The Horned Frogs have outscored their opponents, 141-10 in its last four games, including two consecutive shutouts. The school was highly touted before the season, and hasn’t done a single thing that would in any way diminish its luster. Yet the #4-ranked Horned Frogs […]

Louisville Card File: UConn

There are oh so very many reasons for U of L football fans to feel optimistic about the blossoming regime of Charlie Strong. If forced to choose one, this morning after the Cards domnated UConn, 26-0, this is it. In the first half, U of L was charged with 7 penalties for 70 yards, 4 […]

Louisville Cardinal Media Day Notes, Part 2

When The Rick was asked why he really is quickening his offensive attack this season, he said “We don’t have enough talent to overcome our obstacles.” Asked if he had a nickname for the new style of play, the coach said, “No name yet. You only get nicknames when you win.” When asked if any […]
