If it’s possible for a reigning Heisman winner to fly under the radar, that’s what Louisville’s Lamar Jackson was doing at the beginning of this season. Jackson doesn’t interest NFL teams quite like more traditional quarterbacks out west—chiefly Sam Darnold and Josh Rosen. Some, including Bill Polian, have said that…
Lamar Jackson, the 2016 Heisman winner who, for a while, appeared to be the Second Coming, is heading into the fall with the typical pressure being applied to college football’s reigning MVP—he’ll be tasked with somehow improving his draft stock, bettering a team that fell apart down the stretch, and becoming the…
On Wednesday, the University of Louisville agreed to increase its annual lease payment to the Louisville Arena Authority, which manages the arena in which Louisville plays its basketball games, by $2.42 million each year. The vote to approve the new deal was a contentious one, and not all of the university’s board…
Kentucky Sports Radio published a two-page letter sent to Louisville fans and donors from Cardinals head coach Rick Pitino Wednesday, in which the embattled coach (yet again) invoked 9/11, Bernie Madoff, and his infamous Italian restaurant sexcapade in an attempt to convince Louisville donors and fans of his innocence…
Louisville’s attempt to convince the NCAA that it should avoid punishment because it only hired cheap prostitutes that barely assisted their recruiting efforts has, predictably, failed.
Louisville coach Rick Pitino is currently enjoying his offseason down in South Florida, but basketball never stops, so he’s taking part in a Miami-based master’s league along with former Louisville assistant coach Reggie Theus and others. He claims today was the first time he’s played organized hoops in 16 years.
New York Liberty guard Shoni Schimmel announced her plan to sit out the 2017 WNBA season via team press release on Saturday. The hiatus comes after a down year on the court for Schimmel, a two-time All-Star who will be sitting out what would have been her fourth season in the league.
John “Papa John” Schnatter is a major booster to Louisville athletics. The school’s football stadium is named after his pizza company, which is headquartered in town, and he’s on the university’s board of trustees. Until this morning, he was also on the school’s Athletics Association board, but he resigned from his…
In the top of the second inning against Louisville, with runners on second and third, the University of Kentucky turned this nifty triple play:
Louisville cornerback Shaq Wiggins is seeking a graduate transfer elsewhere for the 2017-18 season. Wiggins will be eligible to play for his new team immediately, since NCAA rules don’t force graduate transfers to sit out a year. However, head coach Bobby Petrino seems to be trying to restrict the options for…
Louisville coughed up an eight-point halftime lead in an upset loss to Michigan.
After last Wednesday, Louisville forward Deng Adel probably thought he was in the clear for claiming the team’s dunk of year. Unfortunately for him, Syracuse defenders are a bunch of ball-watchers.
A Louisville sophomore who won $38,000 at a women’s basketball game by hitting a layup, a free throw, a three-pointer and a half-court shot has now been told that he cannot receive the money because he played basketball in high school.
Rick Pitino was mad tonight! How mad? Mad enough that he had to be held back by his assistant coaches as he and a North Carolina fan got into a shouting match.
UNC and Louisville are in the midst of a tight one in Chapel Hill right now. It’s been a good game between the top-ten teams, and the best moment was easily Deng Adel’s eye-popping dunk from just in front of the free throw line. Look at this jam!
The latest entry to the Idiot On The Field series took place in Louisville, where 31-year-old Randall Bolton tried to enter the Miami huddle during a first-half timeout of what would go on to be a 71-66 victory for the Cardinals.
No. 7 Duke lost their second straight game and their fourth of the year, falling to no. 14 Louisville by a score of 78-69 on Saturday afternoon.
No. 13 Duke edged No. 8 Louisville 58-55, but the Cardinals ran the cleverest play of the night. To start the second half, Louisville fooled the Blue Devils into defending the backcourt, leading to the easiest layup Briahanna Jackson’s ever had.
A weak first half—particularly from Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Lamar Jackson—doomed Louisville to a 29-9 loss to LSU in the Citrus Bowl.
