Tuesday’s Titters: B-Ball, Behanan, BCS & Bortles’ Sig Oth

reporter1As an olde time Cardinal fan, who actually saw U of L play games in the Jefferson County Armory, I’m always amazed and a might pissed that the current success is seen as something new and unprecedented.

Yes, if Louisville should make it back to the Final Four this year — Operative word: “if” — it would be three years in a row. A stunning achievement. Something the Cards have never done, and only a handful of schools have.

But, what’s often lost in the Yummy Yum! Kroger Krew RazzMatazz Russdiculousness of the Reign of Rick is one fact.

The University of Louisville was The College Basketball Program of the 80s.

Two NCAA titles. Four Final Fours, including 3 in 4 years, with only one U.S. Reed half-court miracle preventing a shot in the regionals for four straight.

So, yeah, it’s nice to be back in the upper reaches of the upper echelon. But, make no mistake, it’s not like the Cards haven’t been there before.

I still have no idea what Chane Behanan’s transgressions were.

I have no idea when he’ll be back.

But, I’m putting my money on the game at Central Florida, which is the first one after the UK game.

While I certainly hope a scenario plays out that allows U of L’s pigskinners to play in a BCS game, I still doubt it will come about.

The Cards would need to win out.

Central Florida would need to lose two league games. Or, lose one league game and there would be at least a three way tie for the league title. And, U of L would need to have the highest BCS ranking.

What’s most disheartening about the situation — other than Friday’s loss — is that not only is the Russell Athletic Bowl on the day of the UK basketball game, but so is the Belk Bowl, which directly conflicts the hoops contest.

As for the BCS “title” game, I’m hoping for Florida State vs. Oregon.

No SEC. No Big Ten. Sweet.

But, sigh, it ain’t gonna happen, or my name’s not Brent Herbstreit.

lindsaySpeaking of Mr. Musburger — understand, the name mash above was meant to be a joke — I’d love to watch him do a Central Florida game.

Imagine the moment when they’d put the camera on QB Blake Bortles really and truly significant other.

Talk about must see TV. Get the slobber trays ready.

I’d have to opine, in the arena of who gets the gals, only lead guitarists come close to matching the universal acumen of starting QBS.
