Sports Illustrated ranks Louisville 17th, highlights Pitino/Calipari rivalry

Sports Illustrated's college basketball preview issue doesn't hit news stands until next Monday, but because we're Card Chronicle and every piece of sports writing published anywhere has to go through us before it can be viewed by the public, we've got the goods on what the publication has to say about the '09-'10 Louisville Cardinals.

SI tabs Louisville as the 17th best team in the country and highlights Edgar Sosa in its preview of the Cards. Grant Wahl also pens a feature on John Calipari coming to Kentucky and his icy relationship with "the state's other big ego," Rick Pitino.

Both are solid reads and are available for you to check out below (Update: Links should be fixed).
