Seedy K’s Pithy Pigskin Predictions: Week III

I have sprained my arm, though not broken it, while patting myself on the back for last week’s boffo, if less than totally perfect predictions. After a perfect Week I, only Nebraska’s Cornhuskers, who fell to rising UCLA in the Rose Bowl. let me down last weekend. UK proved my faith was well placed after […]

Tuesday Tidbits: Tsouris On Tobacco Road +

Okay for those of you not fluent in Yiddish, the definition: Tsouris translates as trouble, distress, heartburn from the outcome of a stressful situation.  It’s a feeling to be avoided at all costs. Well, it’s what those hallowed Tobacco Road superschools are feeling these days. At least that’s what right minded observers of the sports […]

Sunday Afternoon QB: Pigskin Tidbits & Bonus Opinionation

If Cards’ fans are pumped about Teddy B, as well they should be and are, Cats’ fans should be equally as pleased with their signal caller Maxwell Smith. 30/39 in the air. Hmmm, that looks familiar. Where did I see that number this morning? Oh yes, U of L’s QB stats. For 354 Big Blue […]

Louisville Card File: Missouri State

Louisville played with far less intensity than in its opener against rival UK. Frankly, it makes sense, given that yesterday’s opponent had been manhandled the week before. So, all in all, it’s hard to argue with a 35-7 W, even if Cardinal fans were hoping for a tally in the 50s. * * * * […]

Friday’s Snippets: Many Sports Included

Revised 9/07 10:20 am U of L finally released its men’s (and women’s) basketball schedules. Last year’s Final Four team warmed up for the conference campaign with the most ambitious home schedule of the Pitino Era. Long Beach State, surprising Ohio, College of Charleston, Vanderbilt and Memphis all visited the Yum!. Cardinal fans actually had […]

Seedy K’s Pithy Pigskin Prognostications: Week II

Curb thy tongue, ye naysayers, ye nagging nabobs of negativitude. Off with thee, ye followers of little faith. The Kid started the season in fine fashion. Not only did my Cardinals take care of biz against UK, but I was a perfect 5 for 5 in my inaugural round of predictions for the season. Including […]

Louisville Card File: Kentucky

It doesn’t happen all that often, but there moments that on occasion define an era. One such — as you have surely read at any number of places already — came about on Louisville’s third play from scrimmage on Louisville’s first offensive drive of the game, Louisville’s first drive of the season against arch-rival Kentucky. […]

Cardinal Fans & Football Future: Sunday’s Biggest Test

You can talk all you want to about Joker Phillips, his status as a Dead Man Walking, or the situation of Kentucky’s ever mediocre football program. Those are, frankly, only peripherally a big deal at a basketball school, where fans spend autumn counting down to Midnight Madness. And you can contemplate if the result will […]

Sunday Morning QB: 1st Saturday’s In The Books

It’s long been recognized that many of the lesser programs in the land fill their early season schedules with visits to major powers, the sole purpose being to fill the coffers of their athletic department budgets. The big guys get an easy W. (Not so fast Pitt.) And the mids get back on the bus […]
