Louisville Card File: Southern Mississippi

Among the many questions that remain about the Cardinals five games into the season, there are a couple of trends about which we can be certain. They are mudders. Much was made about the water and flooding before and during the Florida International game. Silly us. It was but a prelude to last night’s sloshfest, […]

Seedy K’s Pithy Prognostications: Week V

As with life itself, matters on the gridiron tend to even out. Today there is yin. Tomorrow, yang. (Except when fake refs are monitoring games in the NFL, which, as of this writing, they still are.) I was 9-1 after the first two weeks of the season. I thought it would last. Silly me. I […]

Sunday Afternoon QB: Maximum Pigskin Punditry

At the outset, I feel compelled to advise that I’m blogging while wearing, for the first time, my Strom Thurmond High School long sleeve t-shirt. It was given to me by a friend who has moved to that vicinity near South Carolina. I trust I’m the only one on my block with such an item […]

Louisville Card File: Florida International

I’m going to start by mentioning the lack of focus displayed last night by the Cardinals. The lackluster, let’s face it, mediocre performance they came with to escape with a 7 point W over a 1-3 Sun Belt team. But I do so with a mea culpa. My gang watched the affair at my place […]

Hump Day Harrumphs

On Sunday, in my breakdown of Louisville’s glad to get outtahere W over North Carolina, I forgot to rail against a truly inexplicable coaching gaffe emanating from the Cardinal sideline. (I know it’s late. I know it’s been talked about. I know we’re already looking ahead, trying to figure out how to enjoy the upcoming […]

Seedy K’s Pithy Pigskin Predictions: Week IV

As I trust you recall, I started last weekend, having correctly predicted the winners of 9 out of 10 games on the season. When U of L hung on to best North Carolina, I was 10-1. So I passed on dinner out with my friends to watch my final four projected winners bring home the […]

Sunday Afternoon QB: Joker & John L, Not Pleased & Other Observations

After U of L escaped Papa J’s like a thief in the night, I passed on a post mortem with the usual suspects over chicken shwarma at our buddy Ray Ray’s on Fourth Street. There was some righteous football to be played last night, and I intended to take it in, check marking sure to […]

Louisville Card File: North Carolina

On a four yard toss from Teddy B , St. X grad Nick Heuser scored U of L’s final TD with :46 on the clock in a picture perfect 1st half. Moments later, I asked around the press box, wondering if Heuser was the brother perhaps of local pole vaulter, long-tressed heartthrob Chip Heuser. Jody […]

Time Warner, The Time is Now. Add NFL Network to Your Lineup

The chairman and CEO of Time Warner Cable — They own Insight. They are the ones responsible for no NFL Network on Louisville cable. — is a fellow named George A Britt. The following line appears in his bio on the company’s web site. “Mr. Britt also has focused on creating a customer service-oriented organization.” […]

Buh bye Irish, Hello ???

The miasma permeating my space right now is the stench of my own predilection. Or, to be less verbose, I am the victim of the old adage: Be careful what you wish for, it might come true. For years now, I have been decrying the part-time presence of Notre Dame in the Big East. The […]
