Louisville Card File: Rutgers

I know this horse has been beaten so to death, it’s been lying on the ground for weeks, waiting to be carted off to a British sausage factory. I’m still going to beat it a bit more. Because I can. And, because it needs to be done. Last night in Piscataway, Wayne Blackshear fashioned his […]

Ten Reasons To Stay Home Saturday

Chips? ✔ Dip? ✔ Crudités (Eat at least one little carrot and piece of cauliflower, so you can dupe yourself into thinking  you’re eating healthy.) ✔ Beverages chilled? ✔ Impellizzeri’s on speed dial? ✔ These, my fellow hoopaholics, are not supplies for Super Sunday. The avocados will have to wait another day before they become […]

Louisville Card File: Pittsburgh

Corrected 1/29 @ 4:07 pm With 2:42 to play, and Louisville leading 58-50, Gorgui Dieng missed the front end of a 1 and 1. It was the only FT U of L missed in the second half of the narrow W over Pitt. The Cards were 10/11 after the break. After Pitt’s Tray Woodall missed […]

Louisville Card File: Georgetown

Paging Nate Silver. Yo, Nate, you’re a big stats guy with a world view and historical perspective. I need your help. And, if you can’t, I’ll check with Jeff Sagarin or Ken Pomeroy, or both. Because I’m wondering which was the last NCAA Men’s Basketball Champion to lose three games in a row during the […]

Louisville Card File: Seton Hall

Edited 1/10 at 9:45 am (Thanks to a reminder in a Facebook post by a loyal reader.) If nothing else, U of L survived it’s first test this season with Jim Burr in stripes, holding one of the whistles. Which he used as injudiciously as usual. Especially on Wayne Blackshear’s third foul. The Cardinal SF […]

Of all the insipid controversies that crop up like brush fire when folks seem to feel the need to stand up for political correctitude, this one takes the cake. Alabama was beating up on Notre Dame the other night. It was as if the South Benders just got off the boat from Ireland, and thought […]

Seedy K Sounds Off On Sports Tuesday

I’m not sure we learned much about the current state of college football from the most boring bowl season in memory. Other than Clemson’s single digit W in the battle of the Death Valleys, the Hook Em Horns late comeback against the Beavers, The Potato Eaters Vegas W over UDub and Arizona’s nailbiter over Nevada, […]

New Year’s Day Noogies (And a little Nougat too)

Noogie. To the Courier-Journal sports page editors. Perhaps I shouldn’t be quite so unrelenting while continually pointing out the foibles and follies of the C-J’s sports page, which has become an almost daily example of bad editing. After all, I make a lot of editing mistakes myself, not to mention errors of grammar and spelling. […]

Louisville Card File: Western Kentucky

When the telecast of last night’s game came on TV, and it was revealed whom the color commentator would be, I turned to my bride, and said, “I hate when Bobby Knight does a game.” Which is different than hating Bobby Knight for his duplicity, which I also do. Knight is most always less prepared […]

Friday’s Final Shots: Sayonara Big East, Goodbye Willie, Whatup LA & More

Before moving on to other matters, let’s cue up Marty Glickman from the Gaaaaahhden. It’s time we must bid a sad adieu to the soon-to-be-yesterday’s-stale-bagel Big East, her intense rivalries, Dave Gavitt’s well-intentioned promise, her glory early spring days in the Garden, Big John with his shoulder towel vs. Little Louie in Macy’s ugliest sweater, […]
