Seedy K’s New Adventure; A Fond Adieu

After years of blogging about sports here at, I have decided to set out on my own in this regard. From now on, I’ll be providing the same pithy commentary and more at I appreciate the opportunities and support I’ve had here at LEO, going back to the days when John Yarmuth and […]

Monday Morning QB: Mighty Have Fallen, Long Live The Mighty

Brent Musburger was frothing at the mouth with perspective, after a late play in Okie Stat’s dismemberment of the previously undefeated Baylor Bears. “That’s the whole game in microcosm right there,” he observed. (That’s a paraphrase.) The utterance came after a major gaffe that deep sixed any hopes the visitors would leave Stillwater with a […]

Louisville Card File: North Carolina

Corrected 11/24 10:45 pm I don’t always drink in defeat, but when I do I want it to be a learning experience. Pass me another Dos Equis, please. My Louisville Cardinals were schooled. (Actually I don’t drink at all, in victory or defeat, but was aiming for cute there.) My pal David was smart enough […]

Louisville Card File: Fairfield

At his post-game press conference, Rick Pitino was not happy. He did not mince words. He wasn’t content with any aspect of the Cardinals’ performance at Mohegan Sun against Fairfield. At least none that he was going to admit. Despite an early deficit, Louisville was never seriously threatened in its 71-57 W. Interesting. I didn’t […]

Louisville Card File: Memphis State

Okay, it’s Senior Day, a cold one, but you figure this Cardinal team would want to play well for the departing squad members and hearty fans who have braved the frigidity. Playing to the norm this season — best classified as underwhelming but pretty good — the Cards enter the 4th Q with a 3 […]

Seedy K’s Peerless Pigskin Prognostications: Week Lucky XIII

Much of the pigskin planet was blindsided when the Trojans slayed the Cardinal of Stanford last weekend. But not those who hang around here, where it was printed in advance that Stanford was goin’ down to Ed Orgeron’s resurgent Men o’ Troy. Of course, I did overestimate the Phoenix-like characteristics of Texas — Bright Orange […]

Louisville Card File: Hartford (Season Stats Breakdown Included)

My favorite shot of the night didn’t even go down. At 2:31 of the opening half, Terry Rozier, my personal favorite new Cardinal, had a slightly contested three available in the left corner. Didn’t take it. He ball faked and drove the baseline. Instead of going all the way to the hoop, he stopped and […]

Seedy K’s BasketBALLS: Cards Ink Nordic Pivot

I first read it in Mike Rutherford’s story in Card Chronicle, so credit where it’s due. Though Jody Demling might have been the real first scooper. Anyway, riding the second wave, let me share that it’s being reported that U of L has signed, or will soon sign, or intends to sign a 7’2″ (Or, […]

Seedy K’s BasketBALLS: Sunday’s Sizzlers

Yes, I know it’s Tuesday, and Sunday’s games are day before yesterday’s olde news, but . . . . . . But we’ve had a bit of techno difficulty with our web site, which issues hopefully have now been resolved, so I’m just back it. So that’s why the short delay.  * * * * […]
