The Strange Saga of Chris Jones

BY RACHEL SHULHAFER The University of Louisville basketball team has had four losses handed to them this season, and while they were all to quality opponents, it’s safe to say that the honeymoon phase of the national championship is long gone. With some of the performances we’ve seen from U of L recently, it’s hard […]

The Shoni Show

BY RACHEL SHULHAFER Does Shoni Schimmel have everyone’s attention yet? The No. 5 Lady Cards blew out Memphis 88-61 on Jan. 26, to improve their record to 21-1 and 8-0 in AAC conference play. Shoni contributed 29 points and broke a team record in the process. After missing her first four shots of the game […]

Spotlight: UofL Women’s Basketball

BY RACHEL SHULHAFER With the emotional rollercoaster that is the 2013-2014 men’s basketball season, U of L fans have a lot to keep their minds occupied these days. Injuries, lackluster performances, outstanding performances, life without Chane, Russ Smith’s Instagram…it’s a lot to take in. However, while all this is going on, the U of L women’s […]

Game Recap: Louisville vs. Houston

BY RACHEL SHULHAFER Thursday night at the Yum! Center was one of those rare games where everything is going so perfectly, you never want it to be over. The only thing that would have made the night complete would be either Tim Henderson or David Levitch dunking on someone. After the Memphis debacle and the […]

Stop messing with us, Texas

BY RACHEL SHULHAFER There have been countless references to George Strait’s song “All My Ex’s Live in Texas,” when it comes to U of L sports lately, and rightfully so. Teddy Bridgewater is likely to get drafted by the Houston Texans in the 2014 NFL Draft. Former basketball player Chane Behanan is now at a […]

A World Without Chane

  BY RACHEL SHULHAFER The news came at the worst possible time. As Louisville fans were still nursing their egos after the Cardinals fell to the Kentucky Wildcats, news broke that junior forward Chane Behanan was no longer a member of the team. With an already weak frontcourt, losing the 6-6 Behanan, who averaged 9.8 […]

It Doesn’t Have To Be War

BY RACHEL SHULHAFER Dec. 28, 2013 was dubbed by many as “Cardmageddon.”  The annual Louisville-Kentucky basketball game would tip off in Rupp Arena at 4 p.m., and then Teddy Bridgewater and the football team would face Miami in the Russell Athletic Bowl at 6:45 p.m. That’s a lot for Cards fans’ brains, hearts, and livers […]

The Stakes of the Battle of the Bluegrass

BY CHRIS HAAS Kevin Ware, backup guard turned national hero, was not a fan of the “beat UK” chant that surfaced at the end of the Missouri State game on December 17th. He said: “It gets old; it’s boring. It’s just another game. Nobody’s from here except a couple guys on the team. We really […]

Will Teddy pull a Russ?

BY RACHEL SHULHAFER I’ve never been one to be super emotionally invested in decisions college athletes make about their futures. It’s already weird to me that a large portion of my happiness depends upon how well or not well a bunch 18-23-year-olds play a sport. When the likes of Samardo Samuels and Terrence Jennings left […]

Russ Smith’s improved draft stock

BY CHRIS HAAS Russ Smith finished the 2013 NCAA basketball season with a plethora of accolades. He was the leading scorer on a National Championship team. He was named a third-team All-American and a member of the 2013 Big East All-Conference team. A year earlier, he reached the Final Four and broke the all-time Louisville […]
