Seedy K’s Pithy Pigskin Prognostications: Week X

Another 3 up, 2 down weekend leaves me at a glossy 30-15 on the year. .667 will stuff your pockets whether you’re considering the spread or not. I’ll waste no further time. This week’s predictions: Alabama @ LSU. The ever lovable Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide are a double digit favorite in Baton Rouge. Think about […]

Monday Morning QB: A Lot of This, A Little of That

So, yesterday I couldn’t help but think of the somewhat famous Tennessee Williams’ quip: “There are but three cities in the United States. New Orleans, New York and San Francisco. All the rest is Cleveland.” Thinking of New York because of the justified hullabaloo about Hurricane Sandy and all the mess going on in the […]

Louisville Card File: Cincinnati

If nothing else, this University of Louisville football team perseveres. The defense is prone to lapses. There are holes in the secondary. The running game often sputters. Silly penalties come too often at the wrong juncture. The team falls behind. The team lets foes catch up. Yet one thing is paramount. U of L has […]

Giant’s Big in Game 1 & How I Was Saved (Musical Interlude Included)

The Lord taketh away. The Lord giveth. My Tigers were five, six runs down in the World Series opener. It was obvious that San Fran’s scintillating play at the end of the NLCS was not about to abate. Pablo Sandoval had already gone yard twice. Justin Verlander was off, pitching as he did in his […]

Seedy K’s Pithy Pigskin Prognostications: Week IX

If Northwestern hadn’t blown a double figure fourth quarter lead at home in front of a predominantly Cornhusker crowd, I would have had a perfect weekend. Sigh. But Rutgers, Kansas State, Georgia and my Cardinals by the slimmest of escapes took care of biz. I stand 27-13 for the season. No reason to beat around […]

Tuesday Sports Update: A Little of This & Some of That

Anybody out there watching Celtic take on Barcelona in a Champions League match at Camp Nou? Didn’t think so. Surprisingly, Celtic is up early, 1 nil. But you really really don’t care, right? I’ll move on. * * * * * Despite all the negative tests, Lance Armstrong did take performance enhancing drugs, it seems. […]

U of (Silent)L Scrimmage/ Media Day Report

There was much talk at yesterday’s Louisville Cardinal basketball Media Day about wild cards. Players that opponents don’t really know about. Will it be . . . (A) Luke Hancock, who last took the court wearing a George Mason uniform? Or, (B) Kevin Ware, who showed up late last year and never found his mojo, […]

Louisville Card File: South Florida

Another Louisville Cardinal victory, a come from behind job over a team on a four game losing streak. That would be Lucky 7 without a loss. Another head scratching Sunday morning, wondering how good this U of L team really is? The offensive and defensive units each came up HUGE when absolutely necessary for victory. […]

Broom Job: Tigers Sweep Yanks

Pity the poor housekeepers in Motor City today. The brooms they normally use are not to found in their normal spot in the cleaning closet. They are firmly ensconced in flag poles around this proud but rusting city. Sweep. There’s no need to recite the stunning statistics bearing out Detroit’s dominance over the fabled New […]

Seedy K’s Pthy Pigskin Prognostications: Week VIII

Did you happen to see the finish of Texas A & M’s 59-57 barn burner over Louisiana Tech? The teams combined for about 30 points in the last 5 minutes. One big play after another. Well, no, neither did I. But I read about it Sunday morning and wished I’d had the fortitude to stay […]
