Bellarmine under Scotty Davenport hits the Century Mark

The undefeated Bellarmine Knights presented Coach Scotty Davenport with his 100th W at the school Saturday afternoon. As usual, ignore any formatting quirks for the Spugs Report on the nine-point victory. LOUISVILLE, Ky.–The No. 1 Bellarmine University men’s basketball team turned back a solid challenge from the Tornado of King College to record a 75-64 non-conference victory […]

Louisville Cardinal File: Gardner-Webb

Best performance of the day. And I don’t mean Gogui Dieng. Miss Kentucky USA Kia Hampton is not only totally hot. She can sing. And brought it with her Beyonce version of the National Anthem. Stunning. * * * * * The Rick, before packing his clothes for Puerto Rico, or wherever he’s off to […]

Saturday’s Pigskin Putdown: Joey the Vig Wins Again

Joey the Vig calls. I listen. I know better than to ignore his entreaties. Visits from his “pals” Sal and Vito are less than fun. So, Joey called, reminded me that the deadline for his bowl pool was that day. And, admonishing me not to avoid him . . . well . . . his […]

Hoopaholics Anonymous Wednesday: Cardinals, NBA & Other Regurgitations

My name is Seedy K, and I’m a hoopaholic. I’ve never been able to free myself from a loss — especially one as onerous as U of L’s lackluster L to a much better than anticipated Drexel team — until I’ve read the game stories the next morning in the paper. I’ve done that now, […]

Louisville Card File: Drexel

The lack of preparation, the lack of focus and lack of adjustments of Rick Pitino and the Louisville Cardinals against Drexel are not worthy of comment. – Seedy K

Louisville Card File: UNLV

If you looked at just the numbers for the first half, you could say the Cards weren’t in such bad shape. U of L hit on only 32% of its FG attempts, as opposed to the Runnin’ Rebs’ 50%. Vegas hit 58% of its 3s in the first half versus 29%. Vegas had one more […]

Cards turn Tar Heels to Toast, 2-1

Okay, I’m no soccer expert or anything. Never played the game in my youth. Have paid attention during World Cup, and have watched a few Champions League encounters. (Go Barca!) That’s about it. But I’ve watched enough on TV to appreciate the game, the skills required and the patience necessary to be a winner. Which […]

Knights’ Crusade Coninues

Apologies first. I always have problems with formatting the Spugs Report. Sorry. Second, I didn’t make it Knights Hall last night, staying home instead to watch U of L in the national soccer semi-finals. Bellarmine proved yet again they can win easily without me. The Spugs Report: No. 1 Knights cruise to 20-point win over […]

Thursday’s Daily Screed: Favre, Jeter Begone, Stay Charlie Stay

I was at my weekly Wednesday lunch with a couple of pals yesterday. We ate a place that had TV sets over the bar, which I could see, but thankfully couldn’t hear. There on the screen was pro football’s premier prima donna. (Hell, Brett Boy is the highest maintenance guy in all of sports, not […]

Louisville Card File: San Francisco

The Rick most all of the time holds a press conference the day before games, be they home or away. They are mostly useless affairs. Which is why I rarely attend, though most now can be viewed in real time — or later — online. Such is the nature of the coach’s dominant personality that […]
